Porcelain Dental Veneers in Placentia, CA
Porcelain dental veneers are a quick way to improve the appearance of your smile. If you’re looking for a simple alternative to cover the fronts of stained, uneven, or chipped teeth, porcelain dental veneers might be just the solution you need.
Dental veneers are made from durable materials including composite and porcelain. The porcelain dental veneers offer the most stain-resistant solution and are also the most natural looking. They are custom fit and attached to the front surfaces of the teeth, covering the imperfections and color-matched to give you a beautiful, natural appearance.
Prior to applying veneers, you’ll need to schedule a consultation visit. During this visit, an x-ray will be taken, and your dentist will discuss the details with you to determine if porcelain dental veneers are the best solution for achieving the look you’re after. Oftentimes there will be a smile analysis, which will provide you with a diagnostic simulation of what your new smile will look like.
The process is achieved in 2-3 separate visits. First, your natural teeth must be prepared so the veneer will properly adhere to the surfaces. This involves removing enough tooth enamel to make room for the veneers, which are approximately half a millimeter thick. Afterward, an impression of your teeth will be taken, which provides the lab with a mold for custom creating the veneers. Once the veneers arrive at our office, we’ll have you come in for a fitting. At first, the veneers will be temporarily placed and following final adjustments, once you’re happy with the look and feel you the veneers, the dentist will permanently seal the porcelain shell to your teeth.
Porcelain dental veneers require no special treatment if you maintain your normal routine of brushing and flossing. If you’re interested in learning about porcelain dental veneers in Placentia, give our office a call and schedule your consultation today.
