Dental veneers are custom-fitted shells of porcelain or resin composite that are bonded to individual teeth to achieve a seamless, beautiful, and natural-looking appearance. Available from Timothy Bui, DDS, in Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA, read on to learn what veneers can do for you.

The Advantages of Dental Veneers

To understand the versatility of porcelain veneers, we need to look at the different ways it can address the varying dental issues that people may face. Aside from giving you that killer smile, porcelain veneers are also considered as a treatment for:

  • Restoration of discolored teeth
  • Reshaping crooked teeth
  • Correction of unusually shaped teeth
  • Repairing worn or chipped teeth
  • Resizing teeth to achieve uniformity of size
  • Filling spaces or gaps between the teeth to make it look better

Because of the many uses afforded by dental veneers, they offer the following advantages:

  • Having stain-resistant teeth
  • Presents a natural-looking surface that can reflect light much like well-maintained natural teeth
  • Made from durable and long-lasting materials
  • Extensive reshaping of the tooth using a dental crown is not required in the treatment
  • Caring and maintaining is as simple as brushing, rinsing, and flossing daily
  • No need to worry about irritating your gum tissues
  • Fits comfortably and looks good in your mouth
  • Can be customized to make it look as real as possible so it blends well with your natural teeth

How Dental Veneers are Applied

The application of porcelain veneers begins with creating an impression of your teeth. This impression will ensure that the gaps between the teeth are properly filled up and that the size of the veneers will match that of your natural teeth. Based on the impression, the veneers will be manufactured in a laboratory and sent back to your dentist.

It would then be applied to your teeth and the finishing touches would be done as well. This is to make sure that the veneer would blend in with your natural teeth, especially those adjacent to it. Porcelain veneers, unlike dental implants and crowns, are only applied to the teeth surface. This means less permanent changes would be considered for the tooth that has to be treated. Any tooth that will be applied with a porcelain veneer will simply go through some mild buffing and reshaping.

Unlike some over-the-counter whitening products which may contain harsh chemicals, professional teeth whitening is safe, because it’s been tested and approved by the American Dental Association.

Dental bonding, which is an excellent choice to repair cracks, chips, tooth wear, and other signs of damage; bonding uses composite, a unique liquid material that can be matched to the color of your teeth and sculpted to match the natural contours of your teeth. The composite is hardened with a dental light, giving you a restorative treatment that is strong and beautiful.

Porcelain veneers, which are thin laminates of exquisite porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth; porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dentistry services because they can hide both minor and major tooth damage issues like cracks, chips, fracture lines, areas of broken tooth structure, and other problems.
