A beautiful smile can result in better self-esteem and confidence. It can also promote a healthy smile. Patients improving the appearance of their teeth are making a commitment to their oral health. The team at Smiles4OC is available to assist Newport Beach area residents in achieving this goal with cosmetic dental treatments like porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are used to improve one or more teeth. These veneers are made to bond over a tooth to change its appearance. They are affordable, efficient, and natural looking. Drs. Rolfes, Do, and Padia offer veneers as a conservative approach to helping patients make wonderful changes to their teeth.
Veneers are extremely versatile. They are used to cover a tooth that stands out in a patient’s smile in a negative manner. A tooth that is stained, misaligned, broken, or strangely shaped can benefit from the placement of a veneer. The veneer is made by an outside laboratory to match the color and shape of the existing natural teeth so it blends in seamlessly within the dental arch. It is bonded over a tooth and can last decades with proper care.
Many patients choose veneers over alternative solutions such as dental bonding. Dental bonding is the application of a composite material. This material is shaped to the tooth, hardened with a specialized light, filed down to size, and polished. This may temporarily address an imperfection, lasting just a few years. Dental bonding is also more susceptible to staining and discoloration from food, drinks, and smoking. Patients seeking a long-term solution to their imperfect tooth may consider dental veneers instead.
