If you want the easiest and best way to achieve a perfect smile, look no further than porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a common cosmetic dentistry treatment that basically covers the front of your teeth to give them a new color, shape, and size. Instead of going the complicated route of needed braces, reshaping, dental bonding and teeth whitening, you can have an instant makeover with porcelain veneers. Discover how Santa Rosa Dental can perfect your smile with porcelain veneers in Santa Rosa.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
You might already know what porcelain veneers are, but in case you don’t, let us refresh your memory. Porcelain veneers are thin tooth-colored shells that are made of porcelain material. These shells are placed over your enamel and give you a brand new looking tooth! They can be used for a number of reason to hide all sorts of cosmetic dental issues. One of the best parts, you only need to visit us for two appointments to have them placed. The first appointment is where we will determine if they are the best option for you, followed by tooth prep and then taking impressions of your teeth. Your veneers are manufactured in a dental lab and then shipped to us to place them on your teeth. They will be bonded to your teeth for the next ten years or so when they will need to be replaced.
It’s important to note that veneers are a lifelong commitment. This is because, in order to place the veneers, we need to remove a bite of your enamel to make room for them. If you choose to have your veneers removed, your teeth will look discolored and rough because your enamel is thinner. Your teeth will also not have as much protection against cavities. Therefore, if you choose to get veneers, you should know that this is your decision for life unless you opt for thinner veneers without tooth prep. Talk with our dentist to find out which option is best for you.
Are Porcelain Veneers in Santa Rosa Right for Me?
There are a number of reasons that veneers might be a great option for you, just like there are a number of reasons why porcelain veneers might not be right for you. To start, we require that patients who want porcelain veneers have generally healthy teeth. This means that their teeth are free of cavities, decay, and gum disease. Otherwise, your porcelain veneers can potentially fail. We also require that the teeth you want your veneers placed on are natural teeth. This might seem obvious but you could never guess how many patients want us to place veneers over a crown, bridge or dentures. If you meet these simple requirements, you might be a good candidate for veneers.
If you happen to grind or clench your teeth or have unhealthy teeth, we will not recommend porcelain veneers for you. If you grind or clench your teeth, you can damage your veneers in your sleep easily. This is not a smart idea considering how expensive veneers are. If you have unhealthy or damaged teeth, we will need to treat you prior to giving you porcelain veneers.
Porcelain Veneers Can Whiten Your Smile
One of the ways we can perfect your smile with porcelain veneers is by giving you an endlessly white smile. If you’re tired of visiting our dentist in Santa Rosa for teeth whitening treatments, look at this permanent whitening treatment. Since porcelain veneers are not porous, they cannot stain. Therefore, if you have them placed on your teeth, your white smile will never fade. You can drink all the coffee, wine and tea you want without worrying about the effects on your teeth. As long as your brush your teeth well, you don’t have to worry about your natural teeth underneath the veneers staining.
Porcelain Veneers Can Straighten Your Smile
Another way that porcelain veneers can perfect your smile in Santa Rosa is by making it look straight. We can accomplish this without giving you a painful and uncomfortable braces treatment. In order to make your teeth appear straight with porcelain veneers, your teeth must be only mildly crooked. We accomplish this effect by placing veneers over all of your crooked teeth. The way they are bonded will make them look straight without showing what’s underneath. Skip a lengthy orthodontic treatment and opt for these instant results instead.
Porcelain Veneers Can Hide Flaws
Another way that porcelain veneers can perfect your smile in Santa Rosa is by hiding your flaws. Our porcelain shells can cover anything from cracks, chips in your teeth, discolored spots, or minor damage. Porcelain veneers can hide just about any flaw and give you a beautiful and perfect tooth as a result. Never cover your smile again once you have porcelain veneers in your mouth.
Porcelain Veneers Can Hide Misalignments and Gaps
The last way that porcelain veneers can perfect your smile is by hiding misalignments and gaps. This is similar to the way we perfect your teeth by hiding crooked teeth. We shape the shells so that they cover gaps in-between your teeth and any misalignments you might have. Skip the need for multiple dental treatments to perfect your smile and opt for porcelain veneers instead.
