Veneers are thin facings placed over imperfect teeth to create the appearance of a pristine, beautiful smile. These facings are wafer thin. They feel natural to the wearer and appear nearly imperceptible to other people. Dr. Calkins can fit you with a custom-made single veneer or set of veneers, depending on your situation.
Veneers can cover up a variety of dental problems, including crooked, yellowed, chipped, small, or uneven teeth. Whether you were born with an imperfect tooth that makes you self-conscious or your teeth have worn down or chipped over time, veneers may be the answer to improve your smile.
Once you determine that veneers are your treatment of choice, you’ll need two appointments to have them placed. At the first appointment, Dr. Calkins prepares the affected tooth or teeth to accept the new veneers and makes impressions of your teeth. He will send the impressions to his laboratory that makes the veneers.
At the following appointment, Dr. Calkins tests the fit of the veneers to ensure proper placement, making adjustments where necessary. Then he bonds the veneers to your teeth using special cement and activates the cement with a special light.
We encourage you to ask any additional questions at your next appointment where Dr. Calkins can consult with you about your veneers in Lincoln, NE. Request an appointment online today.
“I have been a patient of Dr. Calkins for over 20 years. All of my kids have gone to him since they were toddlers. Very conservative in his approach, never tries to do an expensive treatment if it isn’t necessary. Great at giving numbing shots, can’t even feel the needle.”
“I’ve been going to Dr. Calkins for several years and will continue to do so. Tim is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and patient. I very much appreciate the time he takes to educate me about dental health, to show me my x-ray, or to explain a procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Calkins and his excellent team.”
