Improve your smile with porcelain veneers
Studies have proven that smiling can be an instant mood boost. When your brain releases endorphins, you feel happier and more confident. So, what happens when you are too embarrassed by your teeth to smile? The answer is – it can greatly impact your day-to-day life. The good news is that cosmetic dentistry options such as porcelain veneers can hide imperfections on the teeth, improving your smile and overall well-being. Below, Fallbrook, California, dentist Dr. James Moran explains porcelain veneers and the process for placing them.
Porcelain veneers explained
Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of ceramic that, when attached, become the new “front” of your existing teeth. They are custom-fabricated to look natural while hiding a wide range of imperfections. Veneers can be used to hide issues such as chips, cracks, permanent discoloration, gaps, plus many more.
The porcelain veneers process
Placement of porcelain veneers is a multi-step process that typically requires at least two appointments. We take our time in the planning process to ensure that your results are beautiful and natural. Because we want you to be in love with your smile, we always ask for your idea of a perfect smile and use your input in the design process.
During the first visit, we prepare your teeth for the placement of the veneers by removing a small amount of tooth enamel. This is necessary to allow the veneers to sit flush in the smile and not protrude out too far. Impressions are then taken so your porcelain veneers can be custom fabricated based on the specifications that we provide to the laboratory.
When the veneers are ready, you will return to the office so Dr. Moran can check the fit and feel of the veneers in place. Small adjustments can be made in the office before the veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth. A final polish leaves your smile sparkling, and then you are on your way.
