He makes sure that the new veneers match or enhance your natural smile by customizing their color, shape, and size.
If after your initial appointment, Dr. Sharp determines that veneers are right for you, he schedules you for two follow-up visits to place them.
During the first follow-up visit, your Sharp Dentistry & Associates team gently files away an extremely thin layer of your surface enamel. The goal is to make space for your veneers to rest comfortably against your teeth and sit naturally.
Next, your team takes impressions and digital images of your teeth, which they then send to the lab where engineers fabricate them to fit perfectly. Before you go home, Dr. Sharp outfits you with temporary veneers to protect your newly filed teeth.
