What if we could completely transform the beauty of your smile with only one procedure? Well, we can do just that with our porcelain veneers. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist will explain how we create and place custom-made cosmetic restorations that improve the shape and color of the teeth instantly.
A Thin But Powerful Restoration
A veneer is made from porcelain, a strong material that contains stain-resistant properties and can absorb daily bite forces. We often use this material in crowns, inlays, and onlays too. The material is also translucent like tooth enamel, and can be shaded to blend with your smile. To ensure optimal smile improvement, each one is custom-made for your smile. We start by removing a thin layer of enamel from the teeth. Next, we take detailed impressions and images of your smile as well. We use the information to design the restorations in a dental lab setting. When they’re ready, you return to the office for placement.
Placement and Care
First, we need to check the fit to make sure they fit properly and preserve your bite balance. We may need to make a few minor adjustments. We then place them with a powerful bonding agent, the kind also used to secure crowns and bridges. Now that they’re in place, you need to maintain good oral hygiene to protect the teeth we’ve attached them to from issues like tooth decay or gum disease. Routine care helps them last for decades, and also safeguard your natural teeth too. Be sure you brush and floss daily to remove trapped food particles and prevent the onset of cavities or disease. You should also enjoy a healthier diet, and see us every six months for a checkup and cleaning visit too.
Benefits for Your Smile
When placed, your restorations could mask permanent teeth stains, which may not respond to traditional teeth whitening options. We’ve also corrected the appearance of minor misalignment too, offering an alternative to braces and aligners for some patients. Veneers also offer repair for minor cracks and chips, and lengthen teeth worn down due to teeth grinding. We can also address spaces between the teeth too! With the right steps, your new veneers could lasts decades and we want to make sure that happens.

We would love to help you and your family enjoy optimal smile beauty in 2021!
