"Had a very fast, and great experience in Dr. Toms office. Everyone was friendly, and very helpful."- T.R. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2020
"I have extreme anxiety and fear about the dentist. I had a lower molar that had been troubling me for years but no dentist could ever get it to numb enough to fix it due to my resistance to local anesthetics. Dr. Toms used sedation dentistry techniques to correct the issues with my tooth and I can honestly say it was the best experience I have ever had with a dentist. I highly recommend his practice especially if you deal with anxiety over dentistry work. He and his staff were extremely friendly and made me feel like I was there only concern. The procedure was painless (although I must admit I dont think I was even awake for most of it) and just a few hours later I can acually chew again with a tooth I haven't been able to use for years. Thank you Dr. Toms!"- J.G. / Google / Feb 12, 2020

Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Veneers may be used to rapidly cover stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are abnormally spaced or shaped. At Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D., your veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. During your consultation, Dr. Toms will listen to your objectives and concerns so he can personalize your outcome. Dr. Toms may also see whether you're a good candidate for veneers by assessing the total health of your mouth. You shouldn't have symptoms of gum disease, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
What To Expect with Porcelain Veneers
Once you've decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Toms, he will take impressions of your teeth. Your veneers may be made in our office as you wait, or your impressions could be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain. As soon as your veneers are prepared, Dr. Toms will carefully take off a little bit of enamel from your teeth. This both allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are secured, Dr. Toms may make small adjustments so that your veneers fit comfortably.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery
Since getting cosmetic veneers typically doesn't require anesthesia, you ought to be able to resume your daily tasks following your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to cold and hot meals for a couple of days, but that should fade away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are stain-resistant compared to the natural teeth, you still need to stay away from staining drinks and food to keep your veneers white. To prevent damaging your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice.
Continue to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Patrick B. Toms, D.M.D. so that we can track the condition of your veneers, natural teeth, and general oral health. Dr. Toms will tell you if your veneers need to be replaced or repaired.
Porcelain Veneers Insurance Coverage
Porcelain veneers are an elective treatment, so they are typically not covered by dental insurance. Dr. Toms does take many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to make your veneers more affordable. At the consult, Dr. Toms will personalize your treatment plan to meet your needs and budget. He will discuss a quote for your veneers and explore your payment choices.
