Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord are renowned for quality, artistic work with porcelain veneers, and can transform your smile in as few as two dental appointments. They offer both traditional and minimal-prep veneers, as well as other cosmetic dentistry procedures to meet our patients’ varied aesthetic goals.
Basics Of Treatment
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells that adhere to the front surface of teeth. Custom-crafted to flatter your smile and skin tone, veneers can transform your entire appearance. These restorations can conceal a range of flaws, including:
- Gaps between teeth
- Chips and breaks
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that appear too small or narrow
- Minor misalignments
Veneers are designed to look like healthy enamel to brighten and enhance your smile. These restorations are also custom-shaped to provide symmetry and pleasing, rounded contours. Patients can choose to treat a single tooth or add veneers to all visible front teeth for a dramatic change.
Traditional veneers will usually require two to three office appointments to prepare teeth and wait for your restorations to be made. Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord also offer minimal-prep veneers, which require less time and leave more natural enamel in place. The right choice for you depends upon your goals, budget, and other factors, which Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord can explain in detail. If veneers are not the best option for you, they can recommend another cosmetic procedure, such as teeth whitening or dental bonding.
Choosing Superior Care For Oklahoma City Veneers
Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord offer porcelain veneers made of the finest materials available, including zirconia, IPS e.max®, and a combination of the two. Depending upon the location of treatment, he may recommend different materials for stronger results. Our office uses an on-site porcelain firing oven to stain and glaze veneers, achieving the perfect tone for each patient. Initially trained as a laboratory technician, Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord have a natural, artistic eye and have spent decades creating custom veneers for patients. They have the skill and hands-on experience needed to ensure the best possible effects for your smile.

Oklahoma City Veneer Treatment Process
At your initial appointment, Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord will discuss your goals and the best options for meeting them. Together you can create a treatment plan that is personalized for your unique needs. Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord will also assess your oral health to ensure you are ready for a cosmetic procedure. It is important to start with clean, healthy teeth that are free from decay to improve the success of your treatment.
To create your veneers, Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord will first need to prepare your teeth. We can provide an appropriate anesthetic, and each tooth is conservatively altered to prepare the surface for the veneer. We will then use advanced technology to create precise impressions to design your veneers. You can receive a temporary restoration to wear while awaiting your permanent placement.
Once your veneers are ready, you will return to our office. Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord will ensure that they match your proportions and are shaded to your exact needs. He can do custom coloring in the office to get the right, natural-looking results you desire. Dr. Fling and Dr. Cord use a layering technique to achieve the optimal translucent effect. The goal is to complement your complexion and also match any visible natural teeth. Some patients combine porcelain veneers with teeth whitening or choose a comprehensive smile makeover for the most dramatic change.
