The Life-Changing Effects of Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dentist’s procedure that can improve the look and feel of your smile. Instead of spending months or years gradually changing your teeth with braces or other treatments, Dr. Yazdan’s custom porcelain dental veneers can offer you a new smile in just a few visits.
Dental veneers are a minimally invasive way to give yourself the smile makeover you want without undergoing lengthy treatment processes. Plus, the results are life-changing. If you’ve been thinking about getting veneers, Dr. Yazdan is happy to meet with you for a customized evaluation.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Each veneer is composed of a thin porcelain layer attached to the front of your teeth. The veneer conceals any aesthetic issues or imperfections in your smile. Such as staining or crowded teeth. Veneers are usually fitted alongside one another, allowing the entire set to work together to create the smile you’re looking for.
How Can Porcelain Veneers Help?
Porcelain veneers are made of long-lasting, high-quality materials that retain their brightness over time and do not stain or discolor. Each veneer is used to improve the outside appearance of your front teeth, brightening and symmetrically balancing your smile by hiding faults such as misshaped or stained enamel. Best of all, you’ll notice the difference immediately after your veneers are placed.
With veneers you can enjoy benefits like:
Increased Self-Confidence: If you feel embarrassed about the way your teeth look, you may find it difficult to speak in public, laugh with friends, or even participate in a photo shoot with the people you care about. However, once the veneers are placed you can feel free to speak, smile, and laugh with more confidence.
Smile More Often: Easily start up conversations and make a great first impression knowing your smile looks its absolute best. When you know your teeth always look their best, you won’t have to worry about what other people are thinking.
A Healthier Looking Smile: Porcelain veneers are handcrafted for attractive, yet natural-looking results. They work together to improve the appearance of any gaps, crowding, stains, or imperfections in your visible smile.
A More Youthful Appearance: Porcelain dental veneers provide the most noticeable before-and-after effects of any cosmetic dentistry treatment. These restorations make your teeth look absolutely perfect, as well as give you a more youthful appearance.
The Process of Getting Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers are completed in three steps. First, you’ll visit our Newport Beach dentist for a consultation to determine which teeth, if any, will be treated with veneers. We may take scans or impressions of your teeth to assist us in designing a new treatment plan and achieving the greatest results.
Second, you’ll arrive to begin the preparation phase of your treatment. This appointment will require a little more time to complete. It will ultimately be determined by the number of veneers you’re getting. Dr. Yazdan will provide you with an idea of what to expect during your initial consultation.
During this phase of treatment, our Newport Beach dentist will slightly reduce the front surface of the teeth as well as slightly around the edges. This will create enough space for the porcelain veneers to fit without adding any bulk to your teeth. After we’ve prepared everything, we’ll either take impressions or a scan. These models will be sent to a dental laboratory, which will create permanent porcelain veneers based on the specifications we provide.
Because the lab will need a few weeks to construct your permanent veneers, we will make you a temporary set to wear in the meantime. In some cases, Dr. Yazdan may work in an additional mock-up appointment for you to preview the design of your proposed veneers.
Once the completed veneers arrive at our clinic, you will return to have them bonded in place. Our Newport Beach cosmetic dentist will remove your temporary veneers and check the fit of the permanent veneers. Then Dr. Yazdan will make any necessary adjustments before firmly bonding the veneers to your natural teeth.
