While every dentist touches upon how to do veneers in dental school, the skill level required to provide you with a beautiful smile extends far beyond dental school. Cosmetic dentistry is an art that is learned with advanced training in aesthetics as well as by experience. With this training, skills are learned as to what proportions and dimensions create a beautiful and natural looking smile. A dentist trained in this art will also utilize a specialty lab that has the same skill level. Porcelain veneers done by an inexperienced dentist will most certainly not look the same or last as long as when done by a dentist with the experience and training Dr. Michaelson has.
