Any smile you desire can be possible with the help of dental veneers. Dental veneers can correct chips, cracks, harsh stains, gaps, crooked teeth, or even gummy smiles with only one simple procedure. Normally you would need to undergo multiple procedures such as teeth whitening and Invisalign, but with dental veneers, only one procedure is needed. Veneers are made of ceramic shells that cover your teeth to give you a more appealing appearance. Veneers are a more cost effective way to achieve a better smile and is available at Designed Smiles in Brea, CA.
If you are interested in dental veneers, you will be given a consultation by one of our dentists to see if you are a candidate. Candidates are usually patients who are unhappy with the color of their teeth, have cracks, chips, gaps or gummy smiles. A patient might just not be happy with how their teeth look in general. After evaluating that the patient is a candidate and has healthy gums, the dentist will prepare your teeth for the procedure. This includes removing a thin layer off of your enamel so it can be replaced with the thin shell of ceramic and not be out of place next to your surrounding teeth. After your tooth is prepared, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth and send them off to the lab for your ceramic shells to be made. The lab will take 10-14 days to return your veneers so you will wear temporary veneers until that time. When the veneers return, your dentist will ensure your permanent veneers fit correctly before cementing them onto your teeth.
Dental veneers look and function just like your real teeth, so you don’t have to worry about them looking fake or unnatural. One of the best aspects of veneers is that you no longer have to worry about your teeth becoming stained from red wine, coffee or cola. Your veneers will resist all staining so you can enjoy all the staining food that you want. Another benefit of dental veneers, is that they can last for a long time as long as your teeth are cared for. This includes brushing, flossing and visiting the dentist regularly. It’s important to maintain good dental health to prevent periodontal disease or gum disease from developing, otherwise your dental veneers can fail and fall off as well as develop other dental problems.
