Porcelain veneers are a high-quality ceramic restoration used to cover cosmetic tooth blemishes. Like a shell, the veneer fits snuggly around the front and sides of the tooth. Veneers can be used to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns from improving discolored teeth to closing tooth gaps to repairing cracks.
Dental veneers are made from a state of the art dental material that reflects light like natural tooth enamel. Dr. Dham creates the veneer blend in with your natural smile by customizing the shape and color to your personal specifications. Dental veneers can be used to address a single damaged tooth, or for a total smile makeover. They are considered a permanent dental restoration and offer patients the comfort and beauty of a natural smile.

Dr. Uttma and her staff are by far the most friendly and professional group of people, period. Watching how they work as a unit while having my service done is amazing. I would recommend her to any and everyone.Eugene W.
This is NOT the typical dentist office! Wonder people who provide great personal service. I actually like going to their office. You are more than a number, they really care, and the dentist is an exceptional person.David B.
I would suggest that anyone opening a practice set up a shadowing session with Dr. Uttma and her staff. They'll show you exactly what patient's expect during a visit. There have been so many times where I've scheduled appts with other offices and they don't even do the work. No…NJ J
I wish I had met Dr. Dharm and her staff years ago. Better late than never. This was the most extensive dental work I have ever had. Dr. Dharm's skill and concern got me through it all. Her staff is not only professional but caring and friendly. They are all…Nia I.
Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
Design, create and secure, that is what it takes to receive the smile of your dreams.
The dental veneer procedure may require up to 3 visits to our Plantation, FL cosmetic dentist office. Dr. Dham will outline in detail your procedure prior to treatment. During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Dham will explain the benefits of porcelain veneers for your smile and will provide you with all of your cosmetic treatment options.
During your second visit Dr. Dham will prepare your teeth to make room for the veneers. A small amount of enamel will be removed from the teeth that will be treated. About 1/2 millimeter is removed from each tooth that will receive dental veneer. Then, Dr. Dham will take images of the teeth to use as 3-D molds for the design process. Most patients will receive a set of temporary veneers while their permanent restoration is being fabricated in our high-quality dental lab.
2-3 weeks after your design visit, patients will return to our Plantation dentist office to receive their final veneers. Dr. Dham will ensure that the patient feels fully satisfied with the appearance of their porcelain veneers prior to bonding them to the teeth. Once Dr. Dham receives final approval, the dental veneers adhere to the teeth for a natural, beautiful result.
Porcelain veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic procedure. Because a substantial amount of enamel is removed from the tooth, permanent use of veneers is necessary. If a veneer is damaged over time, a new veneer can be created and placed.
