Above and Beyond
“I recommend Dr. Brantly and his staff to everyone. I am from out of town, traveling by boat. I walked to their office and they were able to work me in with an abscess. Dr. Brantly did a very thorough review and recommended I see an endodontist. Someone from their office drove me there and to the pharmacy at which I then walked back to my boat. This I would say was categorically above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you for such a pleasant experience.”

FAQ ABOUT VENEERS
LEARN MORE ABOUT DENTAL VENEERS
What material is in a Veneer?
Veneers are made of very thin tooth-colored porcelain.
What are the risks of having a Veneer?
• Porcelain may chip over time.
• If the tooth needs a root canal treatment after the veneer is permanently cemented, the procedure may fracture the veneer and the veneer may need to be replaced.
What are the alternatives to Veneers?
Alternatives to placing a veneer are to either leave the tooth as is or to place a composite restoration. Composite restorations remove decay but are limited because they will stain more and do not change the size and color of teeth as well as veneers.
