Dental veneers are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry for improving the quality and appearance of your teeth. Veneers can transform a flawed smile into a pleasing one in just a few dental visits. If you’re smiling less due to stains or other imperfections on your teeth, contact Orange + Magnolia Dental Studio in Costa Mesa, California, to discover how veneers can benefit you.
Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made, tooth-colored shells bonded onto the front surface of your tooth (or teeth) to conceal imperfections in your smile. Dental veneers can correct imperfections such as:
At Orange + Magnolia Dental Studio, we’ll evaluate your teeth to see if you’re a good candidate for veneer treatment. If so, Dr. Joyce Kahng will explain your options for veneers, answer any questions you may have about the procedure, and schedule an appointment to start your treatment.
Veneers can be used to correct flaws on one tooth or many, depending on what you need to create a pleasing smile. There are essentially two types: composite resin and porcelain veneers. Both are effective in concealing tooth imperfections and beautifying your smile. However, the two differ in application and features.
For composite veneers, Dr. Kahng will apply resin material directly onto your teeth and sculpt the veneers to match the size, shape, and contour of your teeth for a natural appearance. The veneers are then cured and polished to complete your smile. The procedure is generally completed in one dental visit. Composite veneers are less costly than their porcelain counterparts, making them a popular choice for people on a budget. However, they’re less resilient than porcelain veneers, don’t last as long, and are more prone to staining, so you’d have to be careful with what you drink and eat.
In contrast, porcelain veneers are composed of durable porcelain material that gives you long-lasting results. The translucent quality of porcelain closely resembles the appearance of natural teeth, making it difficult for anyone to tell you had undergone a cosmetic procedure. Porcelain veneers are stain and chip-resistant and can last up to 15 to 20 years. Treatment takes several days to complete as the veneers are fabricated in a lab using impressions of your teeth taken by Dr. Kahng to ensure your customized veneers provide a seamless fit.
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry procedures, you can’t go wrong with veneers to improve the quality and appearance of your teeth. Veneer treatments are practical, affordable, and minimally invasive, giving you a beautiful, natural-looking smile in a matter of days. You can smile with greater confidence knowing your teeth are straighter, whiter, and more aesthetically pleasing than they’ve ever been.
