Your dentist in Dove Canyon, CA, Dr. Scott Bianchi, knows that patients want to have better-looking smiles. That's why Dr. Bianchi may recommend dental veneers.
More About Veneers:
Veneers are used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're damaged.
Here are some things veneers can help with:
- Stained teeth or discolored, due to poor hygiene, drinking coffee and tea, smoking, chewing tobacco or even antibiotics containing tetracycline.
- Mishappened teeth, which includes: crooked, worn or chipped teeth, irregularly shaped teeth, uneven surfaces and uneven spacing, like overcrowdedness.
When you come into the Dove Canyon office, your doctor will examine your teeth and assess whether veneers are right for you. If he decides it is, then any underlying issues, like cavities, will need to be resolved first. Your dentist will remove some enamel from the surface of your teeth, a permanent process, then a model of your teeth will be sent to a lab where a custom set of veneers matching the color of your teeth will be made for you.
When your veneers finally arrive, Dr. Bianchi will cement the veneers on the surface of your natural teeth.
Veneers are made out of thin porcelain, so you won't feel like your teeth are protruding. On the contrary, they will feel smooth and properly aligned with the rest of your teeth.
Advantages of Veneers:
Other advantages of veneers, besides them concealing the faults mentioned above, is that veneers last longer than dental bondings and have an impressive color stability which makes them highly resistant to staining.
In order to take proper care of your veneers, you need to brush twice a day and floss at least once before bed. It's important to prevent the buildup of plaque, which may result in cavities and other serious issues.
