Porcelain Veneers Rancho Bernardo
Porcelain Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain custom-made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. Veneers are bonded onto the front teeth to create an attractive smile.
They can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may need replacement. However, they are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful, long-lasting smile.
Reasons for Porcelain Veneers:
- Cosmetically creates a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
- Crooked teeth.
- Misshapen teeth.
- Severely discolored or stained teeth.
- Teeth that are too small or large.
- Unwanted or uneven spaces.
- Worn or chipped teeth.
What does getting porcelain veneer involve?
Getting Porcelain veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneers. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken, and you and the dentist will then choose a shade (color).
On the second visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond between the tooth and veneer. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneers, and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
