A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain used to re-create or change the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. They are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth with a durable resin cement.
Many patients come in looking for a second or even third opinion on comprehensive dental problems. Dr. Hummel is a proponent of patient involvement in their treatment outcomes. A detailed diagnosis and treatment plan will be tailored to each patient prior to starting any work. Expectations, cost and procedures will be discussed so there are no surprises along the way. The latest technology will often be used to provide more diagnostic power, a more precise treatment, and ultimately better outcomes.
From Dr. Hummel - "Each patient is an individual, and therefore no treatment plan is exactly the same. Patients need to have options and understand their own expectations before we start. We begin with the end in mind."
