Explore Your Cosmetic Dentistry Options – Dental Veneers
Are you less-than-thrilled with the way your smile looks? Do you wish you had a perfectly straight, bright, and beautiful set of teeth? If so, dental veneers might be the solution you’ve been hoping for. At DeAngelis Family Dentistry in Carlsbad, CA, we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry treatments to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Dental veneers are a perfect example. But before making the investment in a smile makeover, you should understand dental veneers benefits, the process of getting them, and why they may be the right choice for you.
What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made restorations that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. You can almost think of them like thin shells or partial crowns. They are typically made from porcelain or composite resin and are designed to enhance the appearance of your teeth by changing what people see whenever you smile. Veneers can address a variety of cosmetic concerns, including chipped teeth, cracks, stains in your enamel, gaps, and crowding. By covering the aesthetic imperfections in your teeth, veneers can give you a natural-looking, radiant smile.
The Benefits of Dental Veneers
One of the main advantages of dental veneers is their versatility. They can quickly transform the shape, size, color, and alignment of your teeth, providing a comprehensive solution for various cosmetic dental issues. With veneers, you can achieve a straighter, whiter, and more uniform smile in just a few visits to our dental office. No whitening or braces are needed, so you’ll see dramatic results in a shorter amount of time.
Another benefit of dental veneers is their durability. Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains and can last for many years with proper care. Additionally, veneers are custom-made to your specific aesthetic preferences, ensuring attractive yet natural-looking results.
Getting Dental Veneers
The process of getting dental veneers typically involves at least 2-3 steps, depending on the type of veneer Dr. DeAngelis is using. Your smile makeover starts with a consultation at DeAngelis Family Dentistry. During this initial appointment, we will discuss your goals and examine your teeth to determine if veneers are the right option for you.
Composite or same-day veneers only take one appointment to place. They’re best for situations involving one or two teeth.
On the other hand, porcelain veneers usually require at least 2-3 more visits, due to their lab manufacturing process. Porcelain veneers are more durable, so Dr. DeAngelis recommends them in instances involving multiple teeth. Like crowns, porcelain veneers require a preparation process and scan or impression, then we place the permanent veneers about two weeks later.
Choosing Veneers over Other Cosmetic Treatments
While there are various cosmetic dental treatments available, dental veneers offer unique advantages that make them a popular choice among our Carlsbad cosmetic clients. Unlike teeth whitening which only addresses the color of your teeth, veneers can also correct other cosmetic issues such as how your teeth are shaped, aligned, and even their overall size. Veneers provide a comprehensive solution that can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile in the least amount of time.
Plus, veneers are more resistant to staining than natural teeth, making them a long-lasting solution for anyone wanting whiter teeth. Other treatments, such as dental bonding or composite veneers, may require more frequent maintenance and touch-ups. On the other hand, porcelain veneers are known for their durability and can provide you with a beautiful smile for years to come. We’ll also show you how to care for them on a daily basis to prevent avoidable wear or tooth decay in the underlying teeth.
