When you have several problems with the beauty of your smile, you may need a cosmetic treatment designed to address multiple issues at once. With porcelain veneers, we employ thin shells of porcelain to instantly alter the shade and shape of the teeth. In today’s blog, your Newport Beach, CA, dental practice looks at the benefits of veneers.
Our Cosmetic Restorations
Each respiration is actually a thin shell of porcelain, one custom-made to fit over your teeth and cover the front and sides of each one. In doing so, they instantly alter the appearance of the teeth, addressing multiple cosmetic issues at once. The porcelain we use is a durable material that is translucent like tooth enamel. The material can absorb daily bite forces with ease and last for years to come. Our team will color match it to blend with your smile. In addition to veneers, porcelain is also used for crowns, replacement teeth, and more due their lifelike appearance and durability.
Creating and Placing Them
There is no one-size-fits-all approach for porcelain restorations, as every smile is unique and we take a personalized approach to creating and placing them. To get started we will make sure you’re comfortable by administering a local anesthetic to the area being treated. Next, we remove structure from the teeth in the form of a thin layer of outer enamel. Digital images will be taken of your teeth and used to design and craft the porcelain veneers. When they’re ready, you will return to the office so we can attach them with a powerful bonding agent. Once in place, they instantly alter the overall appearance of your teeth, and have the potential to last for years to come.
The Esthetic Benefits They Offer
Our team can employ them to address a number of esthetic concerns, correcting these imperfections instantly. For example, we can repair minor chips and cracks, correct misshapen teeth, and even close embarrassing gaps between the teeth. Placement could also lengthen the teeth worn down by teeth grinding. We can even correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you have a straighter looking smile without the need for braces or aligners! For many, this is essentially a smile makeover in only two visits.
