Teeth in your smile zone play an important role in your appearance. Any defect in color, shape or alignment of these teeth can negatively impact your smile aesthetics and self-esteem. Untreated decay, failed old restorations and injury can cause cosmetic problems that detract from your smile. Restorations with composite fillings provide a cost-effective option for many patients; however, discoloration and a high risk of recurrent decay can cause issues down the road. While dental crowns offer full tooth coverage and better retention and aesthetics than composite fillings, this requires removal of a considerable amount of sound tooth structure. Since being introduced in the early 1980s, porcelain veneers have become a popular, minimally invasive option for beautifying teeth. Our cosmetic dentists combine vast technical skills with an artist’s eye to craft porcelain veneers in Brentwood, CA in as little as two appointments! Porcelain veneers are an equally ideal option for concealing defects in a few front teeth or for a complete smile makeover with other cosmetic services.
Individuals considering porcelain veneers should have good oral health, moderately straight teeth, no history of teeth grinding or clenching (bruxism), and they should already be practicing proper oral hygiene. As a cosmetic dentistry treatment, porcelain veneers aren’t intended to resolve functional issues with teeth, e.g. bad bite (malocclusion). If your teeth are resistant to professional whitening and have discoloration, porcelain veneers are effective for restoring a bright white appearance. Clinical studies show that many years after getting veneers, the dazzling white appearance endures with routine dental care and good oral health habits. This type of restoration requires very minimal tooth preparation, looks beautiful, and won’t weaken your natural tooth structure. Porcelain veneers in Brentwood, CA are an optimal solution for resolving any of the following issues:

The next step in the process is to take digital impressions. We use the impressions and analyze your teeth, gum line and facial aesthetics to create the perfect color, shape and size veneers. We prepare your teeth by removing a minimal portion of enamel to help the veneers lay flat in line with your gum tissue. Then we secure temporary veneers crafted from natural-looking PMMA with removable glue that you’ll wear until your porcelain veneers come back from the dental lab.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office and our team will remove the temporary veneers and make sure the permanent ones fits well, match your other teeth and complement your facial aesthetics. If any adjustments are required, this is done prior to permanently bonding the veneers to your teeth. Although veneers don’t stain like natural teeth, it’s still important to brush and floss twice a day and avoid grinding or clenching your teeth. Veneers can cause temporary mild discomfort, but when you look in the mirror and see your dazzling pearly whites reflecting back at you, you’ll instantly know you made the right decision!
