Instant Orthodontics With Porcelain Veneers
Looking for a way to hide a tooth you cracked as a child? Maybe you have a specific area of your smile marred by dark stains from coffee, wine, or other substances that you drink.
Porcelain dental veneers are a great way to give you back a healthy-looking smile, hide the appearance of damaged teeth and straighten the look of crooked teeth. Made from porcelain, the facings look completely natural. Your Los Gatos dentist can match the color of the facing to the color of the neighboring teeth, which helps it blend into your mouth.
What makes porcelain veneers truly unique is that they can offer the effect of instant orthodontics. By shaping the veneers in a specific way, they can cover up your crooked teeth and instead present a straight appearance with no braces required!
Porcelain Veneers Procedure
Getting porcelain veneers takes two appointments to accomplish. During your first appointment, our Los Gatos cosmetic dentist, Dr. Nehawandian, will examine your teeth and discuss your likes and dislikes. Then, based on that information, she will recommend the number of veneers you need to accomplish your goals. After you make your decision about the treatment, she will begin prepping your teeth. This involves removing a thin layer of enamel on the teeth that require veneers. Then she will take impressions of your teeth and help you pick out the right color for your veneers. Afterward, she will send the impressions and information to the dental lab. In the meantime, you will wear a set of temporary veneers over your teeth until you arrive for your second appointment.
At your second appointment, Dr. Nehawandian will remove the temporary veneers and test the fit and appearance of the permanent veneers. After making any necessary adjustments, she will bond them over the front of your teeth. Then, you will experience an instant smile makeover and straighter teeth!
