Have you ever wondered how some people seem to have a perfect, dazzling smile? This could be thanks to veneers. At Riverside Dental Group of California, we offer a range of cosmetic options to help our patients achieve the smile of their dreams. In today’s blog, we’re here to talk about veneers.
In our office, we can offer porcelain veneers to our patients. This is a thin, shell-like prosthetic that is permanently adhered to your tooth. The patient can decide what shade of white they would like the tooth to be to either blend in with the other teeth or cover all teeth for a full, bright smile. If you have ever had braces but still feel like your teeth are not straight enough, or professional teeth whitening does not reach the level you would like, this permanent cosmetic solution could be the right solution for you.
How Do Veneers Work?
The procedure to place veneers may seem intimidating due to the permanence of it, but this is a common routine in our offices. Once you have had your consultation with your dentist and spoken about your desired results, we will get to work. First, a small portion of your enamel will be shaved down on each one of the teeth that will be covered. An impression will be made of your tooth to create the perfect veneer for your smile. Temporary ones may be placed while you wait for the permanent ones to come in. Once this happens, the veneers will be adhered to your natural teeth.
Unlike prosthetics or restorative solutions, veneers are solely for cosmetic purposes. If you are looking to restore or replace a tooth, check out our other services for implant prosthetics.
Caring For Your New Smile
After the procedure, you may experience slight sensitivity in your mouth. It should go away after a few days. If a problem persists, contact your dentist. It’s important to remember that this is a cosmetic procedure and should not take the place of oral hygiene. In fact, it is necessary that you maintain good oral health with veneers. Be sure to brush and floss twice a day and see your dentist regularly. The materials are highly durable and resistant, so you won’t have to worry about staining them or chipping them. Porcelain veneers are irreversible, so once you have these, you have them for life.
