"I have to say anyone who has anxiety with going to the dentist, this is the place to go. My cleaning was absolutely amazing and I was told step by step what was going on. Liz totally rocked!! Today I had to get a cavity filled and getting a needle in my mouth didn’t sit easy with me. Dr. Dando was amazing and I didn’t even feel the needle!! Definitely coming back for more cleanings and hopefully no more fillings but I know they will take care of me if I do."- F.N. / Google / Mar 02, 2023

who is a good candidate for dental veneers?
A quick way to mask chips and stains is with dental veneers. If you have chips in your teeth or want to improve worn down or misaligned teeth and fix teeth that are unevenly shaped or spaced, you could be a good candidate for dental veneers. At Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, your cosmetic veneers will be custom-made to fit comfortably over your teeth for an attractive and natural look. During your consultation, our team will listen to your goals and expectations to really personalize your treatment. We will also find out whether you're a good candidate for veneers by checking your overall oral health. Contact our Hamburg, PA office to learn more.
what should I expect with veneers?
The first step with veneer placement is taking dental impressions. Your dental veneers could be made in our Hamburg, PA office or sent off to a lab, depending on how many are needed. As soon as your porcelain veneers are prepared, a small amount of enamel will be removed from your teeth. This both allows space for the veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are bonded, our dentists at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry may make minor adjustments so your veneers fit comfortably.
what is recovery from veneer placement like?
Recovery from veneer placement is usually an easy process because it does not require anesthesia. Although you may have some sensitivity to cold and hot food for a few days, it shouldn't be anything major. You can also schedule a follow-up appointment with us at Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry if you have any concerns. Your veneers should be cared for just like your natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are more resistant to stains compared to natural enamel, you still need to stay away from staining drinks and foods to keep your veneers white. To prevent chipping your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like ice or your fingernails. Annual appointments and biannual cleanings in our Hamburg, PA office will keep your veneers in great shape.
will insurance cover dental veneer placement?
When you opt for porcelain veneers, it is understood that it is an elective procedure. With that said, dental insurance doesn’t usually pay for these types of procedures. At Theodore E Dando DMD Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we do accept multiple payment plans, including CareCredit®, and low-interest financing options. To make your procedure easier to afford, we will make sure to personalize your treatment to match your goals and your budget. Contact our financial team in our Hamburg, PA office to learn more about how we are able to work for you.
