Multiple physical imperfections on the teeth that appear in your smile can hamper your self-confidence. This can come in many forms, included a misshapen tooth, dental stains, dental fractures, and discolored fillings.

Rather than guarding your smile and facial expressions you should contact Dr. Federico Lago to get a better understanding of the cosmetic restorations he offers. Dr. Federico Lago can assess the specific imperfections affecting each tooth and the best method for improving your smile’s appearance.

To help improve a smile suffering from multiple physical and cosmetic imperfections, Dr. Federico Lago might recommend fitting you for a series of dental veneers in conjunction with porcelain dental crowns.

The process starts with Dr. Federico Lago examining each tooth in your smile. If one or two teeth have shallow tooth enamel or they have been compromised in some other way, Dr. Federico Lago might suggest restoring the problematic tooth with a porcelain dental crown. This will fully replace the tooth enamel layer with dental grade porcelain.

After preparing any teeth that need dental crowns, Dr. Federico Lago will create a detailed impression of each tooth intended for a dental veneer or crown. This information will be sent to a dental lab where dental technicians will shape each dental veneer to match the shape of its intended tooth.  

You will need to return to Dr. Federico Lago’s clinic for a second appointment when your dental work is ready. After securing any dental crowns in place, he will use a drill to remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. The veneers will then be carefully cemented in place.

If you are in the Peabody, Massachusetts area, and you are unhappy with your smile’s appearance, you should call 978.535.2500 to schedule an appointment at Zicherman, Lago, and Associates, PC.
