Are you looking for a dazzling and stunning smile? Veneers might just be the best solution for you. Veneers are a regular cosmetic dental procedure that can completely reinvent your smile. Here at Point Loma Family Dentistry, we have transformed hundreds of smiles using beautiful porcelain veneers.
The latest veneers can be about as thin as a contact lens, requiring very minimal to no preparation of the tooth. Veneers can be used on just one tooth to correct a single flaw or placed on all the front teeth to give you a complete smile makeover.
What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are designed based on the impression of your teeth taken by your dentist. This ensures that the shape and color of the porcelain shell resemble your natural tooth enamel closely. Porcelain veneers act as a protective shell for the cracked teeth, allowing you to eat, drink and talk naturally.
Fix Cosmetic Problems
Dental veneers help fix various dental issues, including closing the gaps between teeth. They provide solutions for misshapen or fractured teeth and help conceal the staining or discoloration of teeth.
Porcelain veneers involve a much less invasive procedure compared to other dental restorations, including dental crowns. A very small section of the tooth’s front surface is removed to make room for the veneers. The procedure may not even require any anesthesia.
Easy to Maintain
Porcelain veneers should be well cared for, as you would do for your natural teeth. The tartar and plaque buildup can be reduced and kept in check by following regular oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing. Regular checkups with your dentist are also vital to help you enjoy a white, natural, and healthy smile.
Porcelain veneers provide a stain-free and long-lasting solution. If they are cared for properly, the dental veneers can last for more than ten years. In addition, veneers also offer resistance to decay and discoloration. But still, you should avoid drinking beverages like tea, coffee, and biting hard food as this could damage your veneers.
How Do Veneers Work?
Veneers are fabricated from either composite resin or porcelain material and are designed and colored to imitate the natural look of your teeth. The procedure starts with the shaping of your teeth. A little bit of the tooth’s enamel is shaved, and then the custom-made veneers are permanently bonded to existing teeth. Strong adhesives are used for this purpose and, if required, hardened with a special light.
