Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that improves the appearance of your smile. A smile with stains, chips, old fillings or other imperfections can leave you feeling self-conscious.

One of the most effective cosmetic dentistry treatments is to have Dr. James E. Gaff install porcelain dental veneers over each tooth in your smile. This will restore the luster and appearance of the teeth, and the porcelain material will not be as receptive to future stains as your natural tooth enamel. The net result is that your white and winning smile will be much easier to maintain.

To install the veneers in Jacksonville, Florida, your dentist will examine each tooth in your smile. Should one of your teeth lack the sufficient enamel to anchor a veneer, he will likely recommend having the tooth restored with a porcelain dental crown.

After the examination, Dr. James E. Gaff will form an impression of each tooth that needs a veneer. This will be sent to a dental lab where the veneer shells will be formed.

A team member will call you back into our office when your veneers are ready. Then, he will use a drill to remove a minuscule amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. The veneers will be painstakingly cemented in place.
