Porcelain veneers from our Moreno Valley, CA practice can transform your appearance by correcting a diverse range of cosmetic blemishes. Veneers are thin porcelain shells, which one of our skilled dentists will attach to your teeth. The porcelain will cover up stains, chips, and other surface flaws. The veneers can even reshape your teeth and correct minor orthodontic issues. At Value Dental Centers Moreno Valley, we use meticulous techniques. With our experience and our lab’s attention to detail, we can provide veneers that are a near-perfect match to your teeth. In turn, your enhanced smile could enliven your whole face, giving you a brighter, younger look.
How Can Porcelain Veneers Enhance Your Smile?
Because veneers will fully cover the façade of your teeth, they can address a whole host of cosmetic issues. Among other things, they can correct:
- Dental stains, especially if your teeth are discolored from the inside. Teeth whitening cannot address this type of discoloration.
- Chipped or cracked teeth, as long as the cracks do not affect the structural integrity of your teeth
- Worn teeth
- Irregularly shaped or unusually sized teeth
- Minor orthodontic issues that do not affect your overall bite alignment
- Small gaps between teeth
Are You a Candidate for Veneers?
If you struggle with any of the concerns listed above, you may be a candidate for veneers. Ultimately, however, your dentist will need to evaluate your oral health to determine your eligibility for treatment.
To receive veneers, you should have strong, healthy teeth without previous or current decay. In addition, you should have adequate dental enamel to undergo the preparatory steps of treatment. If you have compromised teeth, or if you have suffered enamel erosion, your dentist can suggest an alternative cosmetic dentistry treatment. Dental bonding is one of the most common options.
Designing and Placing Porcelain Veneers
Before the initial prep work, your dentist will numb your teeth. Because of our effective local anesthesia, you should feel very little during your treatment. Your practitioner will then carefully trim off a small amount of dental enamel. With our conservative techniques, this step will not damage or weaken your teeth.
After prepping one or more teeth, depending on your goals for treatment, your dentist will take impressions. At our lab, the technicians will use these molds to create your customized veneers. When the shells are finished, your dentist will ensure that they fit correctly. You will also be able to examine the veneers and make sure that they meet your cosmetic goals. If they do not require any adjustments, your practitioner will use composite to attach them to your teeth.
The Benefits of Veneers
Our lab uses advanced dental materials, which offer a slight translucence and a lifelike sparkle. In addition, the ceramists will carefully match the porcelain to the natural color of your smile. Thanks to this combination of skill and precision, your veneers will be extremely realistic.
In addition, veneers are quite durable. Proper care consists of basic dental hygiene, including brushing, flossing, professional cleanings, and regular exams. When you follow basic protocol, your veneers could last a decade or longer.
Finally, veneers can have a transformative effect on your appearance. Because they can address so many issues simultaneously, this one procedure can give you a total smile makeover. With a brighter, healthier-looking grin, you may look years younger, and you could enjoy a renewed sense of self-confidence.
