Improving the appearance of your smile often requires the help of your cosmetic dentist. Procedures like crowns, bridges, teeth veneerswhitening and braces can make huge changes for the better to your teeth. However, dental veneers can overhaul your smile’s entire look, including the color, shape, length and width of each tooth, and can even improve small gaps and misalignments. Learn more about veneers and what they can do for you with Dr. Timothy Bui in Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA.

Types of Veneers in Newport Beach and Garden Grove, CA

  • Porcelain Veneers: Porcelain veneers most closely resemble natural teeth though they are the most expensive option. These veneers, created in a dental laboratory by a lab technician, require preparation of the tooth before placing the restoration. This includes removing a small portion of enamel from the front of the tooth where the veneer will adhere. Porcelain is famous for resisting stains and being easily customizable to the color of your natural teeth so they blend in seamlessly.
  • Composite Veneers: These veneers are made from composite resin materials molded directly onto the teeth and do not require the help of a dental laboratory. While porcelain veneers often improve the appearance of all of the teeth, composite veneers usually repair small imperfections like cracks, chips, or small misalignments in the teeth. Composite veneers are cheaper than porcelain, but do not appear as natural and are not as resistant to stains.
