An unappealing smile can leave you feeling awkward and uncomfortable in social situations. Fortunately, Dr. Reeve Abraben has the experience, training and tools to give you the winning smile you’ve always wanted. One of the most common options we recommend for people with chips and stains in their smile is to have those teeth fitted with custom made dental veneers.

Dental veneers are essentially thin porcelain shells, that are custom designed to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material can be shaded to give you a white smile that lasts a very long time.

It takes two separate appointments to fit your teeth with porcelain dental veneers. The first step involves Dr. Reeve Abraben examining your teeth and taking a few X-rays. This will determine if there is sufficient, healthy enamel to securely anchor the porcelain dental veneers. If one or more of your teeth has been compromised by past dental work or lacks enough strong healthy enamel, we might recommend that the tooth be restored with a crown.

Then he will create an impression of the teeth in your smile. This is sent the dental lab where your custom dental veneers are made.

Dr. Reeve Abraben will call you to schedule the second appointment, once the dental lab has completed your veneers. During this appointment he will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.

If you are interested in being fitted for porcelain dental veneers, you should call Dr. Reeve Abraben at 386.752.1342 to schedule an appointment.
