Porcelain Veneers Sunnyvale CA
Teeth veneers are thin ceramic shells that bond directly to the surface of your natural teeth. The dentist makes the veneers using a mold of your teeth to ensure a perfect shape and size match. Veneers are a popular cosmetic solution for permanently brightening and straightening your teeth.
When Are Dental Veneers Used?
When it comes to achieving a Hollywood smile, dental veneers achieve several cosmetic purposes. Since dentists use patients’ natural teeth to get impressions to create veneers, they blend seamlessly with your smile. Well-known celebrities, like Emma Watson, Miley Cyrus, and Meghan Markle, have transformed their smiles with veneers, and so can you.
Repairing Natural Wear and Tooth Degradation
Teeth naturally experience wear and tear over the years. Everyday activities, like biting and chewing your food, place natural wear on your teeth. The natural wear on your teeth causes the enamel coating to wear thin, causing discoloration and staining.
Detrition to your teeth becomes more evident as you age, and poor oral hygiene makes it worse, resulting in cracks or chips in your teeth. Veneers cover and bond to the damaged tooth, fortifying its natural strength and durability.
Straightening Crooked Teeth
Veneers can instantly straighten slightly crooked teeth, by covering imperfections on the surface and filling gaps between teeth. If your teeth are severely crooked, your dentist may suggest a different treatment, like clear braces.
Correcting Genetic Predispositions
One reason for crooked teeth and oral imperfections is your genetics. You may have been born with crooked teeth or gapped teeth (diastemas). Veneers are a fast and effective way to correct these issues and achieve your perfect smile.
Fixing Accidental Damage
Apart from genetics and natural occurrences, veneers can also fix accidental damage caused to teeth. Some patients experience trauma to their teeth while playing sports, sustaining a fall, or in an auto accident. No matter how the accident occurs, veneers can fix your cracked or broken teeth.
What Are the Benefits of Veneers?
If you want to fix surface damage to your teeth and enhance your smile, teeth veneers offer several benefits.
Veneers and Invisalign – Before & After
Look Like Natural Teeth
Dental veneers seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth. The veneer shell is custom-made from a mold of your teeth and bonds directly atop your natural tooth. And they are better than natural teeth at resisting stains and discoloration.
Feel Like Natural Teeth
Veneers feel and function just like natural teeth. After the veneer placement procedure, most patients do not experience any uncomfortable sensations from their dental veneers. The veneer is ultra-thin and perfectly matches the shape of your natural tooth, so it doesn’t feel any different.
Are Durable and Lasting
Ceramic and porcelain veneers have an average lifespan of around 15 years. With proper care and oral hygiene practices, your veneers can last longer. If you don’t brush and floss and you grind your teeth, your veneers might wear out earlier.
Taking good care of your veneers only requires you to take care of your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene. Brush and floss your teeth at least twice per day and use an anti-cavity mouthwash before bed.
Improve Your Natural Teeth
Veneers do more than improve the visual quality of your teeth. They also protect your natural teeth by serving as a thin layer of armor. The veneer resists new surface stains and discoloration, so your smile stays radiant for years to come.
