We have received many questions about the coronovirus and our practice. I wanted to let you know that we are taking aggressive, thorough, and comprehensive measures to keep our office COVID-19 free. In addition to the standard hygiene protocols established by the CDC, American Dental Association and OSHA, which even in normal times we follow and adhere to with vigilance, we are also screening our patients for travel and flu like symptoms while cleaning throughout the day all of our public spaces -- bathrooms, reception, front desk, door handles, etc.
As you know, our professional staff always wear masks, gloves, and protective coats when interacting with our patients and all our equipment is sterilized. All exam rooms are thoroughly cleaned between each patient visit. Nothing is more important than our patient's health and dental health and we will do everything in our power to make our office an ultra-low risk environment.
If you currently feel sick, please reschedule your dental appointment and call your physician. This is especially true if you have a fever, cough, sneezing, or shortness of breath. The same thing applies if you have had any of these symptoms in the last 48 hours.
Please also reschedule your appointment if, in the past two weeks, you have either been in close contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19, or have returned to the United States from an area affected by the coronavirus disease. Right now this list includes China, Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea. However, the list of countries continues to change, so it’s a good idea to check this Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for updates on the affected countries.
If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to call us.
Hi! Welcome to the Hereford Dental Health – Craig Longenecker DDS dental blog where we take the time to answer dental questions. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom-made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:
1. Chips 2. Cracks 3. Stains 4. Teeth that are misshapen 5. Teeth that are too short 6. Teeth that are misaligned 7. Gaps between teeth
The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth. Then, a skilled technician will use the model to fabricate the laminates. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed. Today’s veneer process leaves most of your healthy tooth structure.
Please call 410-357-0099 and a member of our understanding staff can answer any questions you have about veneers. We can also tell you about other procedures that can upgrade your smile.
