What Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers are widely used for cosmetic reasons. Our team at forever smiles dental clinic will evaluate your smile and determine if porcelain veneers or another cosmetic treatment is right for you.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells or laminates that are typically made of porcelain, but in some cases, a dentist can also create veneers using composite resin. Both material closely resembles the luster and appearance of the natural teeth, making them the ideal solutions for many cosmetic dental concerns.
Porcelain veneers can correct the following cosmetic concerns:
- Tooth discoloration
- Worn teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Irregularly shaped teeth
What Are The Benefits Of Veneers?
Dental veneer offers several benefits for those who want to enhance the appearance of their smile.
- Can help cover stained and discoloured teeth
- The dental porcelain or composite resin can be color-matched to blend seamlessly with your natural smile
- Requires less preparation than other cosmetic or restorative treatments
- They offers a long-lasting, natural-looking solution to many cosmetic concerns.
What Happens During The Porcelain Veneers Process?
The entire porcelain veneer process typically requires 2-3 visits to our Costa Mesa dentist office. To begin the process, our team will perform a complete dental consultation to examine your smile and learn more about your cosmetic goals. In addition, if there are any issues that need to be addressed prior to your treatment, we can treat them before applying your veneers. It is imperative that cosmetic dental treatments are only performed on healthy teeth.
Once your comprehensive exam is complete, we will begin to plan your smile makeover based on your needs. The next step requires you to undergo tooth preparation and dental impressions. In order to create a proper bonding surface for the veneers, we will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth.
After your mouth is prepared, we will take impressions of your teeth. In addition to your impressions, we will also send the specifications of the materials and color chosen for your veneers to a dental lab for fabrication.
During the final appointment, we will gently clean, polish, and chemically etch the surface of your teeth to create an adequate surface for your veneers. Next, we will carefully place and bond each veneer to the affected teeth. Once completed, we will check your bite and make any final adjustments.
