What if we had a single cosmetic treatment option that could offer a complete smile makeover? For many patients, our porcelain veneers accomplish just that! In today’s blog, your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist will explain how we use lifelike veneers to instantly mask esthetic issues and transform the overall beauty of your smile in just two visits.
The Porcelain Veneer
A veneer is a very thin porcelain restoration, one that mimics the translucent nature of tooth enamel, and one that we can tint to match the shade of surrounding teeth. Porcelain is also a durable material, one that can absorb daily bite forces and provide decades of restoration with proper care and attention. For this reason, we use them to correct a number of esthetic issues, and they help transform the appearance of your smile.
No-Prep and Traditional Options
The restoration is placed onto the tooth and covers the front and sides. With the no-prep version, we apply the restoration directly to the tooth without removing natural structure. However, this does limit the number of issues we can address. The traditional version requires the removal of a thin layer of outer structure to make room for a slightly thicker version. We create the veneer based on detailed impressions and measurements we take of the prepared tooth, and then the finished product is attached to the front facing side of the tooth with a powerful bonding agent. To keep them strong and bright, you should continue to attend checkup and cleaning visits every six months, and make time to brush and floss daily.
Benefits of Your Smile’s Beauty
Placement allows our team to mask the permanent teeth stains that may not respond to teeth whitening treatments. We also help lengthen teeth worn down due to injury or teeth grinding, and repair minor chips and cracks too. We’ve filled embarrassing gaps between teeth, and also reshape malformed teeth too. If you have minor misalignment, then we can place several to correct the appearance of your smile, providing an alternative to braces for qualifying patients. If you have any questions about porcelain restorations, or about whether they can benefit your smile, then contact our team today. We will schedule a consultation to assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic issues, and recommend the best treatment options.
