Dental Veneers in Vista
Are you unhappy with several different aspects of your smile? Do you wish you could take care of them all with a single cosmetic treatment? If so, dental veneers may be the treatment option for you. Veneers can improve several issues at once including color, shape, length, chips, cracks, and even alignment. If you are interested in knowing more about what dental veneers can do for you, contact Dr. Amiri. Rather than undergoing several different treatments, you may be able to restore your smile with just one!
What Are Dental Veneers?
Fabricated from dental porcelain, dental veneers are wafer-thin shells bonded over the front portion of your teeth, to correct any number of dental irregularities. They can improve the color, shape, and size; camouflage damages such as chips and cracks; fill spaces; and straighten your smile by correcting the appearance of mildly rotated teeth. During your first visit, your teeth will be prepared by removing the slightest amount of tooth enamel for a flush fit. Next, impressions of the prepared teeth will be taken from which a master ceramist will fabricate your custom-crafted veneers.
When your veneers are completed, they will be checked for comfort, fit, shape, and color, then permanently bonded to your natural teeth. In just two visits you will have a completely new smile!
What Are the Benefits?
Porcelain veneers offer a variety of cosmetic benefits, including:
- Veneers can tackle a number of issues with one treatment
- Porcelain is a translucent ceramic material that provides an authentic appearance similar to your natural teeth
- Veneers work well for patients who want whitening, but whose teeth resist bleaching or are sensitive to chemicals
- Veneers may allow you to avoid orthodontic treatment for mild misalignment problems
Am I a Good Candidate?
Do you wish for a whiter, more beautiful, uniform smile, free of chips or cracks? Then consider porcelain veneers. Although porcelain veneers require more of an investment than less-invasive, individual treatments, the long-term cost-effectiveness proves an advantage. Not only are veneers easy to care for–you simply care for them like your natural teeth–they can last up to 20 years or longer.
