Correct cosmetic issues with your smile using porcelain veneers
A healthy smile is a superb goal, but it cannot be achieved on your own. Your teeth should be unblemished and in balance with the rest of your facial features. Since this can’t be achieved with brushing and flossing, you need to see a cosmetic dentist in Riverside, California, to optimize your smile and your overall appearance.
There is at least one dental imperfection you don’t like about your teeth — no shame, we all do! Dr. Neal Edwards uses porcelain veneers to hide your smile imperfections for a one-of-a-kind smile. If you want a natural and durable cosmetic treatment, this is it!
Dental problems that porcelain veneers can fix
Dental veneers are super-thin coverings of porcelain affixed to the front teeth to improve their health and appearance. Dr. Edwards can recommend dental veneers to fix numerous dental imperfections, including:
- Gapped teeth
- Gummy smiles
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Severely stained teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Awkwardly shaped or sized teeth
Porcelain veneer results will outlive composite veneers, teeth whitening, and cosmetic bonding. In fact, if well-maintained, dental veneers can last for 20+ years! Dental veneers may cost more than other cosmetic dental care treatments, but they are a long-term investment to take you to the aesthetic transformation you’ve always wanted.
What to expect from the dental veneer treatment
Our dental team, led by Dr. Edwards, has extensive training and experience in cosmetic dentistry, especially veneer installation. However, what makes our veneers superior is personalization.
Before fabrication, we do a lot of prior planning. We spend time getting to know you as a person and establishing your current smile concerns and what you would like to change. Together with you, we choose veneers that suit your smile and personality. We even preview your treatment outcome to get your input before the actual treatment starts!
Once we are done with planning, the easiest part is the preparation of your teeth for veneers. Under anesthesia, we etch out a microscopic portion of your enamel to create space for your veneers. Next, we take either digital scans or impressions that the dental lab will use to custom-make your veneers.
Once your veneers are ready, we try them in to ensure they fit comfortably and look natural. If not, we shall make a few adjustments until they look and feel right. Finally, they are permanently cemented to give you your smile transformation.
