Your smile’s appearance can have a significant impact on your self-image and sense of self-esteem. Discolored tooth enamel, chronic dental staining problems, and minor physical imperfections can leave you with an unappealing smile.

In the case of a smile with multiple cosmetic and minor physical imperfections, Dr. Grant Brough might suggest cosmetically restoring your smile with dental veneers. This is a series of porcelain shells that mimic the natural shape of each tooth in your smile. The special dental grade porcelain can be shaded to look like gleaming white tooth enamel.

Dr. Grant Brough will start the cosmetic restoration process by examining each of your teeth. It’s important to determine the overall health of a tooth and depth of available tooth enamel. If one of your teeth has a significant dental fracture, old dental filling, or an active area of tooth decay, Dr. Grant Brough will likely recommend treating the tooth with a porcelain dental crown.

Dr. Grant Brough will form an impression of each tooth intended for a dental veneer. The good thing about our dental office is we offer same-day dental veneers, so you don’t have to worry about multiple appointments to create your dental veneer.

When the veneers are ready Dr. Grant Brough will use a dental drill to remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the face of each tooth in your smile. A strong dental adhesive will then be used to cement them onto the corresponding tooth.

If you live in Layton, Utah, and you are unhappy with your unappealing smile, you should call 801.773.5285 to set up a consultation at Dr. Brough Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
