Enhance the smile with porcelain veneers at Sunnyvale, CA area dental practice
Imperfections that are located near the front of the smile can significantly change its overall appearance. With the use of cosmetic dentistry, many patients in the Sunnyvale, CA area can make alterations to their natural smile to feel more confident in the way they look. Certain imperfections, such as chipped teeth or gaps between the teeth, can be resolved with the use of composite or porcelain veneers.
What is a veneer?
A veneer is a dental restoration that is used primarily for cosmetic purposes. The veneer is made of either porcelain or composite resin. It is a very thin shell that covers the front of the tooth, disguising problems such as:
- Spaces/gaps between teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Misaligned teeth
Many patients can use one or two veneers to dramatically change the look of their smile without having to undergo extensive dental work such as orthodontia. It can also eliminate the need for other restorations such as dental crowns, which require the removal of a significant amount of natural tooth structure to place. The veneer is simple and effective at achieving the desired results.
Which type should I choose and how long do they last?
Porcelain veneers are highly recommended in most cases, though composite veneers are less expensive. The downfall of composite veneers is that they do not last as long as porcelain veneers, because they are susceptible to natural staining. Replacement can easily be done at the dental office. Choosing the type of veneer for your smile will depend on various factors that Dr. Todd S. Adams will take into consideration when assisting patients with cosmetic dentistry solutions that fit their needs. During a consultation appointment, patients can discuss what they are looking for and the budget they have for restorations.
