For some, correcting every cosmetic flaw in their smile would be a big undertaking. It could require multiple treatments and procedures, which would likely be both time consuming and costly. Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a solution with porcelain dental veneers.
Porcelain veneers are thin coverings that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are custom made for each patient to accommodate their aesthetic needs. They can effectively cover:
- Stains and discolorations
- Small or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between the teeth
- Crooked teeth
- And more
Our Orange County dentist uses porcelain in many different cosmetic and restorative cases, veneers included. Porcelain is strong and durable enough to sustain chewing forces daily. It also naturally reflects light in the same way dental enamel does, meaning veneers provide a realistic look for every patient.
Dental veneers can be placed in just two appointments. A thin layer of dental enamel must be removed from the teeth in order for them to fit properly. Patients have the choice of addressing all of the visible teeth, or only the ones with visible cosmetic flaws. Each veneer is custom made, so our dentist will work with you to ensure you get the new smile you want.
