Newport Beach, CA patients discover the uses of porcelain dental veneers
With only a few seconds to make a good first impression, a bright smile can help you stand out from the crowd. It can impact your personal life as well as your professional one. Dr. John Ravera in Newport Beach, CA offers porcelain veneers to transform your smile. Veneers effectively disguise imperfections to give you a stunning, natural smile.
Beautiful smiles have been sought after for ages. In the 1920’s, a Hollywood dentist conceived of veneers when we used a similar idea to improve the smiles of actors and actresses. Technology has since changed making veneers available to the general public. Veneers are applied to the teeth to transform their appearance. Made of thin shells of porcelain, dental veneers are less than 1mm thick which is as thick as a fingernail. Custom veneers are created using impressions of your teeth with only a small amount of the enamel prepped ahead of time. Since porcelain dental veneers are individualized, they can be applied to a single tooth or used as part of a full mouth makeover.
Uses of veneers
Porcelain dental veneers offer a number of possibilities for smile improvement. Veneers can correct the following concerns:
- Discolorations or staining
- Chipped teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Gaps or spacing issues
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
Depending on your personal needs, veneers may be the first cosmetic treatment you try to transform your smile. In other cases, you may have tried teeth whitening or other cosmetic treatments without getting the results you want so veneers are now a secondary treatment. For example, most whitening procedures cannot effectively treat tetracycline stains, but veneers can cover the stains and brighten the smile. Similarly, if you have small imperfections such as gapped teeth or slight misalignments, veneers may be an option rather than facing major orthodontic work.
Custom porcelain veneers are created and adjusted for the desired color, size, and shape. They produce smiles that look and function naturally. The porcelain material ensures the durability and longevity of your smile. Cosmetic imperfections are easily corrected with veneers.Back to Dental Veneers Page
