In just a single appointment, Dr. Faulconer, Dr. Dais, or Dr. Underwood can begin restoring your smile with veneers at Crossroads Family Dentistry. If you don’t feel good about your smile, your self-esteem can be affected, and you may feel uncomfortable about smiling or speaking in social situations.

Veneers – The Basics
Veneers are small, extremely thin dental prostheses. They are typically made from high-quality dental ceramic or resin, and they are custom created to fit perfectly over your existing teeth, covering up the exterior chewing surfaces. The treatment is fast and non-invasive, and can be used to correct imperfections on a single tooth or even all of your front and side teeth, depending on your needs.
The Placement Process For Veneers
The process of veneer placement typically takes just two appointments, after one of our doctors has confirmed that you are a good candidate for the treatment. At your first appointment, your teeth will be cleaned to prepare them for veneers, and a thin layer of enamel will be removed. The amount of enamel removed is equal in thickness to the veneers which will be placed in your mouth.
Then, images and impressions are taken of your teeth. These are sent to a dental lab, where your veneers will be custom made to fit perfectly on top of your teeth. At your final appointment, our dentists will check your veneers for fit, and make minor adjustments if necessary. Then, they will be permanently adhered to your teeth to form a more attractive smile.
The Benefits Of Veneers
Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments for a good reason. Here are just a few reasons that patients at Crossroads Family Dentistry love veneers:
- Completely natural look and feel – Veneers are made to look just like natural teeth, and their durable, stain-free design ensures that they will blend in with the rest of your smile.
- No special care precautions required – Other than brushing and flossing normally, all you need to do to protect your veneers is avoid eating non-food objects and chewing hard foods like almonds.
- Can treat many different cosmetic issues – From teeth staining to gaps, slightly crooked teeth, minor tooth damage and more, veneers can treat a wide range of cosmetic flaws.
