A dental veneer is a thin piece of porcelain that is permanently bonded to a tooth to improve its appearance. At Berbos Dentistry, porcelain veneers are custom-made and can match the color and shape of any tooth. Porcelain veneers are especially effective for teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, irregularly shaped, or misaligned. Porcelain veneers are also a great option for patients who have a gap between their teeth. The porcelain veneers can close the gap, creating a uniform, beautiful smile.
Are Porcelain Veneers a Good Treatment Option?
Porcelain veneers can be an excellent choice if you are hoping to correct several types of cosmetic dental issues all at once. For example, if you have several teeth that are chipped, discolored, or misaligned, porcelain veneers might be your only option for correcting those issues. Because veneers are custom-crafted to cover the front of your teeth, porcelain veneers can also be a good choice if you want to close gaps between your teeth or correct slight misalignment issues.
The Porcelain Veneer Procedure
To begin the porcelain veneer procedure, your dentist in Fullerton CA will clean and prepare your teeth for the veneers. Then, they will use a shade guide to select a color for your veneers. Your dentist will then take impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to the dental lab so that your veneers can be created. After your veneers are complete, your dentist will gently remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This helps ensure that the veneers fit properly and look natural. Finally, your dentist will bond your veneers to your teeth using special cement.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, translucent shells that fit over the front surface of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom-made in a dental lab for a perfect fit and a natural look. Porcelain veneers will cover the imperfections of the teeth, such as cracks, chips, and stains, as well as gaps between teeth. Porcelain veneers are stain resistant, so regular teeth whitening treatments may be unnecessary.
Porcelain veneers are extremely durable. With proper care, they can last for years, or even decades. Because they are made from porcelain, they are stain-resistant, making them a better option than composite resin veneers.
