Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures:
Porcelain Veneers and More
Cosmetic dentistry is a powerful tool that can allow dentists to do everything from subtle enhancements to total transformations. While some patients may be satisfied with a single teeth whitening procedure, others may seek multiple procedures, or a smile makeover, to improve their appearance dramatically. One of the most popular and versatile options for patients who want to make changes to their teeth is porcelain veneers.
Veneers are tiny pieces of porcelain that are bonded to natural teeth. They can make major changes to the look of the smile and can mask a variety of flaws. Teeth that are affected by cracks, chips, and uneven shapes or lengths can all be covered with a porcelain veneers. Veneers are also effective at covering moderate misalignment or small gaps. This can leave the patient with a smile that looks straight and aligned. Teeth that have permanent discoloration may also be improved with porcelain veneers.
With proper care, porcelain veneers may last for decades or even longer. They need to be cared for just like natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing. It is important to stay current on regular dental visits to ensure there are no cavities in the teeth. Natural teeth that have veneers on them are still susceptible to decay and gum disease. Professional cleanings and dental visits can help ensure these potential issues are caught early.
In addition to porcelain veneers, Dr. Vallejo offers several other options for cosmetic dental improvements. Patients may be interested in Invisalign, teeth whitening, or even dental implants to enhance their smiles.
