As time passes it’s not uncommon for you to experience small chips and stains in your teeth. This could be compounded by other imperfections, like past dental work that no longer matches the current shade of your tooth enamel. In a situation like this, many people seek out Hooper Family Dentistry to explore their options for restoring their winning smile.

At Hooper Family Dentistry, our highly trained staff is experienced in a wide variety of cosmetic improvement options. One of the more popular options for restoring your smile is to have your teeth fitted for custom-made porcelain dental veneers. It often requires two separate appointments for [practice name] to fit your smile with porcelain dental veneers.

At the first appointment your dentist will examine your teeth and take a few X-rays to assess tooth structure. It’s important to make sure that there is sufficiently strong enamel to later mount the veneers to. If one of your teeth has been compromised by past dental work or lacks sufficient enamel, your dentist might recommend having that particular tooth restored by a crown.

Once all the teeth in your smile have been assessed, Dr. Stephen R. Hooper will take an impression of all the teeth that will receive dental veneers. This will be sent our professional dental lab where your custom dental veneers are made.

When the dental lab has completed your dental veneers, we will call you to schedule the second appointment. During this appointment the dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.

If you are interested in being fitted for porcelain dental veneers, you should call Hooper Family Dentistry at 318-742-2272 to schedule an appointment.
