We offer quality, experience,
and the latest in esthetic dentistry.


We strive to help our patients keep their smiles healthy and strong, while also doing all we can to ensure you love the appearance as well. At Cedar Ridge Esthetic & Family Dentistry in Urbandale, Iowa, we are experts on enhancing the look of your smile as well as its health. Unfortunately, over time our smile can start to change into something that we don’t love due to stains and discoloration. Providing restorative and cosmetic dental treatments has allowed our patients to fix characteristics in their smiles they don’t like.  

One of our most popular and effective treatments is the placement of dental veneers.


What is a veneer?

A dental veneer is a thin, porcelain, tooth-shaped covering that is placed on the outer surface of your tooth, to change the appearance completely. Each veneer is custom made to the natural tooth that it will be covering. 

The process of receiving dental veneers is quick and simple with our dental professionals. After consulting with our experts and deciding that veneers are the right option for you, the first step is for us to take impressions of your smile to accurately make the veneers. 

With these molds, we can help you determine which aspects of your smile you would like to improve. Below we have listed the many characteristics that veneers can change about your smile: 

  • Crooked teeth 
  • Close unwanted gaps 
  • Overall yellowing and discoloration 
  • Individual stains and spots
  • Uneven length and width 
  • Uneven texture or shape 

Working closely with the dentist, you can choose which parts of your smile you would like to improve.


The Placement

Once your molds and desired changes have been sent to our dental lab, we will start the process of buffing and preparing the outer surface of your teeth to accept the veneers. At your second visit, veneers will be bonded to your teeth and perfected. The entire process only consists of two visits.

Veneers are a very durable form of restorative and cosmetic dentistry. However, they are not considered fully permanent and may require touch-ups in the future.
