VeneersHow veneers from your dentists in Garden Grove and Newport Beach, California can remake your smile

Your smile is your trademark, so what do you do if your smile becomes damaged? Over time, daily wear-and-tear can create small cracks, breaks, defects and other aesthetic problems with your teeth. The good news is you can hide the cosmetic issues and remake your smile, thanks to porcelain veneers!

Dr. Timothy Bui wants to introduce you to the benefits of porcelain veneers. He has two convenient office locations in Newport Beach, and Garden Grove, California to help your smile.

Porcelain veneers are thin laminates of high-grade dental porcelain that are placed on the front surfaces of your teeth, creating a beautiful, uniform tooth surface. When you choose porcelain veneers, you will experience amazing benefits, such as:

A naturally beautiful appearance, because porcelain is a light-reflective material that closely resembles tooth enamel, so your veneers will look completely natural

Long-lasting good looks, because porcelain resists stains from coffee, tobacco use, and other habits, so your veneers will always look beautiful

Conservation of tooth structure, because unlike other restorative treatments, with veneers only minimal tooth structure is removed

Versatility, because veneers can hide many cosmetic issues, including some that are usually treated with orthodontics, like tooth overlap or spaces between your teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great choice to cover up:

  • Chips or cracks caused by daily wear-and-tear
  • Erosion or worn-down teeth caused by bad habits or aging
  • Fractures or breaks caused by an injury or accident
  • Heavy stains or discolorations from genetics or medications

Porcelain veneers are the state-of-the-art way to achieve a perfect smile. You deserve to look your best, and it begins with your smile. If you have a smile that is damaged, or you just want your smile to look fantastic, it’s time to consider porcelain veneers. It’s time to call Dr. Timothy Bui, with offices in Newport Beach and Garden Grove, California. Call today!

Learn more about dental fillings and why they are necessary.Tooth-Colored Fillings

 

A dental filling is one of the most common restorations you can get. If you find yourself facing a cavity then our Garden Grove, CA, dentist Dr. Timothy Bui will certainly recommend getting a dental filling. Of course, many people worry that others will notice a mouth that contains a dental filling. Luckily, this is why we are happy to offer composite resin fillings.

What are composite resin fillings?

If our Garden Grove, CA, general dentist discovered a cavity during your latest routine cleaning then we will want to treat the issue right away. Once the decay has been removed we will need to restore the tooth with a dental filling. While fillings can be made from metal, in most cases we will choose a tooth-colored material to fill the tooth. Composite dental fillings are great because they can be matched to the shade of your teeth and will blend right in, so no one will even know which tooth or teeth have fillings.

This same material can also be used for purely cosmetic purposes. Composite resin is used in a technique known as dental bonding, in which this resin is molded over small cracks, chips, gaps or stains on one or more teeth to improve the color, shape, evenness or length of a tooth.

How are they placed?

Once the tooth has been properly prepared we will apply the first layer of composite resin over the tooth. The resin is moldable so we can easily shape and contour it once it’s applied. Then the layer is hardened with a dental light. Once we have applied enough layers to completely fill the tooth, we will polish the resin to protect the material from staining and to match the sheen of the rest of the tooth.

Whether you have questions about getting dental fillings in Garden Grove, CA, or Newport Beach, CA, or you need to talk to us about the cosmetic dentistry services we offer, then call our office today to schedule your consultation.
