Is your smile as beautiful as you would like it to be? The wear and tear to your teeth from daily living can leave you wondering what choices are available to improve your looks. Cosmetic solutions exist that can improve your grin beyond its current appearance. The placement of realistic porcelain veneers can give you the smile of your dreams with less invasive care. Speak with our Cerritos, CA dentist office to determine if this service addresses your esthetic concerns. You will be surprised at how versatile this solution can be!
A Practical Solution for Dental Damage
Veneers are made from thin layers of porcelain that are applied over teeth. The material mimics the appearance of natural enamel to blend in with your smile and can provide a whiter look for stained and blemished structures. The coverage of each tooth allows existing chips and cracks to be hidden from sight instead of requiring structural alteration. The layer can also cover gaps between teeth by extending their edges to nearly touch side by side. Patients with bruxism can cover the wearing down of the teeth from years of grinding and clenching.
Veneers can improve the function of your bite in addition to improving its look. Small adjustments to the shape and orientation of these restorations can correct certain dental misalignments. The application only requires a minimal shaving of the tooth, so you will be able to show off your new look sooner than you may expect. Remember to care and clean for your improved smile with the same standard you gave before. Continue brushing twice daily and flossing every day.
Additional Cosmetic Solutions
Our practice offers a variety of other treatments to help improve your smile’s appearance while maintaining your overall dental health. Durable ceramic crowns are well-suited to cover stained or damaged teeth. We select a material for each crown that blends in with your natural teeth for a restored appearance. We also offer teeth whitening procedures to brighten your enamel through a gentle bleaching process. This treatment removes stains while leaving your natural structure intact, helping you feel proud to show off your teeth once again! Often a combination of various treatments can address your specific concerns, so make sure to ask your dentist about each procedure.
