Persistent dental stains, discolored tooth enamel, and other cosmetic imperfections on your teeth can leave you with an unattractive smile. This can cause you to alter some of your facial expressions and hamper your self-confidence.

In a situation like this you might want to schedule a consultation with a dentist like Dr. Alexis Mai to understand your options for improving the appearance of your teeth.

In some of these cases, she will recommend cosmetically restoring the appearance of your teeth by installing dental veneers. This treatment process will effectively replace the face of each tooth with a thin shell made from either dental grade porcelain or composite resin.

If one of your teeth has a significant physical defect, she might recommend restoring the tooth with a porcelain dental crown. This could be related to an untreated dental fracture, active cavity, existing dental filling, or misshapen tooth enamel.

Your dental veneers and any other necessary dental restorations will need to be created in a dental lab. You will need to return to Elite Cosmetic and Family Dentistry when they are ready. This installation can typically be performed in a single outpatient appointment.

If you live in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area and you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you should call 513-771-5212 to set up a consultation with Dr. Alexis Mai.
