Get New Smile Instantly with Dental Veneers or Prepless Veneers in Tulsa, OK
When you are happy, you should smile. If you are embarrassed about how your teeth look, however, you might not feel like smiling. Dental veneers are one of the most popular and versatile cosmetic dentistry treatments available at our Tulsa, OK dentist office. Not only do they make your teeth look great, but they protect them as well.
Dental Veneers to Reshape Your Teeth
Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that doubles as a restorative dentistry treatment. These ultra-thin covers for the front of your teeth are made from a special ceramic. We will color your veneers to look like healthy teeth and shape them specifically to fit the teeth they will cover.

A veneer basically is a covering over the front and sides of the tooth which allows us to create a whole new look. It looks like a new tooth when it's bonded in place. We use that if people have worn their teeth, if they have spaces between their teeth, if they have old fillings that are large and unsightly, teeth that are discolored for, like, tetracycline stains, and all kinds of things like that.
I had a young women, who is delightful, and we had restored all of her back teeth because they had very large old silver fillings with decay and got those all restored. I said to her, “You know, we ought to consider dressing up your front teeth,” and she said, “Well that would be vain.” Well, so she had worn them down pretty severely and one day she came in with one of them broken and she and I agreed that it was time. After I did hers, closed the spaces, got the length back, she said, “Dr. Cobble, if you want me to go stand out on Yale or 91st with a sandwich board, I'd be happy to do that and say get in there and let Dr. Cobble give you a new smile.”
And so, that was a delightful way that she expressed her appreciation and she said, “You know, I kept saying that would be vain, but I really wanted it and when I finally gave myself permission, I wish I had done it years before.”
Because dental veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, they cover any cosmetic problem you have with those teeth. If you have stains from plaque or years of drinking coffee, the porcelain material will hide them. Instead, people will see a bright, white smile.
Your enamel is durable, but it can collect chips, craters, and cracks over the years. Dental veneers will hide that damage as well. Plus, your veneers will seal up such damage and prevent it from getting worse.
Dental veneers can help with the shape and position of your teeth as well. By making veneers just a bit bigger than your teeth, they can cover small gaps in between. If you have a tooth or two that are crooked or have uneven edges, dental veneers can correct both. As soon as your veneers are placed, your smile will look amazing.
The Dental Veneer Procedure
Before dental veneers can transform your smile, you’ll need to visit our Tulsa, OK dental office for careful and accurate measurements. This allows us to expertly craft your dental veneers to fit your teeth. (And if you need to cover gaps or make teeth look even, those measurements will be changed slightly to do just that.) Once they are ready, you’ll come in to have your veneers bonded to the front of your teeth.
Prepless Veneers for a Quick Improvement
Although all veneers are thin, some are thinner than others. With standard dental veneers, a dentist needs to remove a small layer of enamel from your teeth. This is so the veneers will fit in with your other teeth and not look out of place. At Masterpiece Smiles, you can get e.max prepless veneers. These instantly improve your smile like any veneers. However, e.max prepless veneers are made from a special material that is incredibly strong. This means they can be made even thinner than traditional veneers, so no enamel needs to be removed.
