Porcelain veneers require two appointments because the veneers are fabricated at an expert dental laboratory. At the first appointment, the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a provisional covering. In a few weeks, the veneers are back from the laboratory and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. Using veneers, Dr. Lemieux has remarkable capacity to close gaps, align crooked teeth, and change the size and shape of your teeth
Between the two visits the crown is fabricated at an expert dental laboratory. During this time a provisional crown is worn. At the second visit, this provisional crown is removed. Then, the final crown is adjusted as needed and bonded or cemented in place.
A bridge is an excellent option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. The bridge replaces the missing tooth, and the two surrounding teeth anchor it for support and strength. Dr. Lemieux can achieve beautiful results to keep your teeth at their best possible performance and appearance.
In the past, many adults have had amalgam (silver alloy) fillings. As these fillings age, they tend to pull away from the surrounding tooth structure and create a breeding ground for bacteria and decay. All the fillings in our office are made using a tooth-colored composite material.
Not only are tooth-colored fillings more appealing, but they bond directly to the structure of the tooth. Composite material wears like enamel. It is less brittle, and it expands and contracts less to reduce the risk for cracked, sensitive teeth.
