A smile can be more powerful than most people think, and it can be taken for granted. If there’s a flaw in your smile, whether it’s stained teeth, a gap, or chips, chances are, it’ll almost always be on your mind when you’re interacting with others. An effective solution for improving the appearance of teeth is with dental veneers. This cosmetic treatment offered by Great Smiles of La Mesa can treat issues such as chipping, discoloration, size discrepancies, fractures, and spacing between teeth. Veneers also offer other benefits when you choose this treatment in La Mesa, CA to enhance your smile.
A veneer is a thin shell made of porcelain that is bonded to the front of a tooth. It is custom-made for each patient and each tooth. This ensures that it will fit seamlessly over the tooth so that it’s impossible to tell that any cosmetic dentistry work was done at all. This method can be used to change the appearance as well as the shade of the teeth, resulting in a smile you’ll love.
Once you have certain teeth treated with dental veneers, you won’t have to worry about those teeth getting stained or discolored as natural teeth do. Whitening will never be necessary for veneers.
The only care that veneers require is the same as the natural teeth, meaning regular brushing and flossing. They require no extra maintenance. Because they are bonded directly to the teeth, they are very durable. By continuing your normal oral hygiene habits as usual, including regular dental checkups, you can enjoy your veneers for many years.
To have veneers placed on the teeth, a small amount of the tooth enamel will have to be removed to make room for them. Impressions will then be taken of the prepared teeth. A dental laboratory will use the impressions to create the veneers, which will be bonded to the teeth once they are completed.
