Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our dentist in Newport Beach could just place some thin shells over your teeth, ones that look like teeth, and simply cover any and all of the imperfections that your smile has? Well, it’s not only possible, but with dental veneers, it’s a simple, safe, and effective reality. It doesn’t matter if your teeth have chips or cracks; or if the gaps between them are too wide. Even poorly-sized, misshapen, crooked, and discolored teeth will all look better thanks to veneers. In fact, the more of these issues you have, the more valuable this cosmetic service is for you. But even if you only have one concern about the appearance of your teeth, there is every reason to take advantage of veneers as permanent solution to the problem.
Dental veneers are often made out of porcelain, a material that has two major benefits to recommend it. First, because it is a very good match for the color of your teeth, there is no awkwardness of self-consciousness about them. To anyone else’s eyes, they just look like your natural teeth. Second, porcelain is resistant to stains. So if you engage in any typical habits that cause tooth discoloration, such as smoking, drinking tea or coffee, or eating berries (among other foods and drinks), you can feel much more confident in continuing your indulgences without worrying about the whiteness of your veneers. Our dentist in Newport Beach wants you to have the best-looking smile possible for as long as possible.
The process of getting dental veneers starts with an exam and consultation to ensure that you’re a good candidate for them. Once that is established, impressions will be taken by our dentist in Newport Beach. They will be sent to a dental lab, where your new veneers will be created. You will then return and have them fitted over your teeth and adjusted, as necessary. There is a small loss of natural tooth material when you get veneers. This is to keep the thickness of your teeth constant, and allow room for the thinness of the veneers to be placed over them.
