How Veneers Help Your Smile Shine

Do you have multiple complaints about the appearance of your smile? If so, we could potentially address most or all of these issues at once with our porcelain veneers. These cosmetic restorations can offer a smile makeover. In today’s blog, your Cerritos, CA, dentist talks about using one or more veneers to make your smile shine!

The Benefits of Our Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain, a durable mayoral that is often used to create crowns and even replacement teeth, such as bridges or implant restorations. The material can also be color matched to blend with your smile, and reflect the translucent nature of tooth enamel. Which means they offer a lifelike and natural appearance for your smile. When placed, they cover the front and sides of each tooth, so they instantly correct multiple cosmetic concerns at once for our patients!

The Cosmetic Improvements

What esthetic concerns can our porcelain veneers address? Well, we can use them to close embarrassing gaps between your teeth or even repair minor chips and cracks. We can add length to teeth worn down by grinding and clenching, and reshape malformed ones too. If you have permanent teeth stains, the kind that may not respond to traditional teeth whitening methods, this could instantly brighten your smile. Our team can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment, so you obtain straighter-looking teeth without the need for braces or clear aligners. For many, these can offer a makeover, but we can also combine them with other treatments, like teeth whitening or even bonding and contouring.

Creating and Placing Cosmetic Restorations

How do we create and attach these custom restorations? To begin, our team will numb the teeth receiving them so you feel comfortable as we gently remove a thin layer of enamel, making room for your restoration. Our team takes detailed digital images and measurements of the teeth from multiple angles, which we use in a lab setting to design and craft your custom restorations. We want them to not only look natural, but fit comfortably as well. Finally, we check the fit and make any necessary adjustments before we attach them with a powerful bonding agent. With proper care and attention, such as daily brushing and flossing and visits for checkups and cleanings, they can last for years to come.
