Because of modern dental technology, such as Waterlase laser treatment for fillings, digital radiography and diode laser periodontal therapy, if you have been desiring to change the total appearance of your smile, you can! At Epic Family Dental in San Clemente, California we offer many cosmetic dental procedures that change the parts of your smile that you don’t particularly like.
One of our most popular cosmetic treatments is that of porcelain veneers. Veneers can change the total anatomy of your teeth to form a smile that you have always wanted.
What is a Veneer?
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain material that are made to look exactly like the outer surface of the patient’s tooth. After speaking to the dentist about the details of how you would like your smile to be changed, veneers will be sent to the dental lab to be custom-made to fit your teeth.
Veneers can change many different characteristics of your teeth and your smile including:
- Closing unwanted gaps between teeth
- Being able to change the shape of your teeth to make them more proportionate
- Making crooked teeth straight
- Changing the overall shade of your smile
- Able to make shorter teeth longer to resemble the others
Once veneers are made and ready to be placed, the visible portion of your tooth will be prepped to have the veneer bonded. Veneers are permanently bonded to the teeth to create a permanent smile change that you have tailored to your preferences.
Benefits of Veneers
Other than the fact that veneers allow us to change the parts of your smile that you want to be fixed, there are many other benefits to choosing veneers.
Porcelain material is very durable and acts just as strong as our regular teeth enamel.
The surfaces that the veneers are placed, have low risk of accumulating decay
Because veneers are made of porcelain, they don’t experience staining or discoloration
Wanting to change your smile into something that you love is possible here at Epic Family Dental for any one of our patients in San Clemente, California. If you have any questions about the process or what veneers can do specifically for you please feel free to contact us.
