Veneers are a straightforward procedure. You can completely makeover your smile in just three visits to the Ontario Dental Center. As effortless as that sounds, porcelain veneers in Ontario, California, and elsewhere require considerable skill for the result to look, feel, and function like a natural tooth. Our veneers, crafted from porcelain, are very thin shells that we skillfully apply to the front surface of any tooth which you feel could use a revamp. They can be placed to cover chips or cracks, discoloration, minor gaps between teeth, and so much more. The customization of our porcelain veneers ensures they blend in with your natural teeth so that your smile is better looking than ever before.
With a particular interest in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Mukesh Patel routinely plans, prepares, and places veneers on teeth that have become worn, discolored, or otherwise damaged. Likewise, he may determine that you are an appropriate candidate for porcelain veneer treatment to conceal small gaps or spaces between teeth or to conceal misshapen teeth. At Ontario Dental Center, we use veneers that are crafted from only the finest materials so that your smile can appear flawless and completely natural. Your veneer(s) will be crafted to blend in with the rest of your smile in both shade and shine.
Prepping For Your Porcelain Veneers
Minimal prep work is required to receive a dental veneer. A very thin layer of enamel must be shaved off of any tooth receiving a veneer. This ensures that the veneer sits flush with your other teeth, and the rough surface makes bonding the veneer to your tooth easier. This process is painless but irreversible, so you need to be sure that porcelain veneers are the dental solution you truly want. You cannot grow back your enamel, which makes porcelain veneers a permanent solution.
Once your tooth (or teeth) has been prepared to receive a veneer, the veneer will be bonded to the tooth using advanced bonding cement. Once the bond is set, you will walk away with a smile that you can be proud of and conceal any imperfections that may have been affecting your self-esteem.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
If you have ever felt self-conscious about your smile, we encourage you to reach out to our team to learn more about the benefits of porcelain veneers. Here are a few benefits you can expect from this incredibly popular dental treatment.
Natural Look and Feel
Our porcelain veneers are crafted to look and feel completely natural. Nobody will ever know that you’ve had any work done … unless you choose to tell them. You will immediately boost your self-esteem, knowing that nobody is staring at the imperfections in your smile anymore.
You may wonder what kind of special care is required to keep your veneers in great shape and ensure they last as long as they should. There is not much you need to do than you already do for your natural teeth. You will want to maintain a healthy oral hygiene regimen, including twice daily brushing and flossing. Make sure you keep your twice-a-year examinations and cleanings part of your schedule so that your veneers can be monitored. This simple maintenance will help ensure that your veneers remain pearly white and strong. Because porcelain veneers are non-porous, they are naturally stain-resistant, needing minimal effort for maintenance.
Minimal Enamel Removal
Once the enamel wears away or is removed, it is gone for good. It does not regenerate or grow back. The fact that only a very thin layer of enamel needs to be removed is a benefit. The veneer would look bulky and awkward if the enamel is not removed. It would not sit flush with the surrounding teeth. This process of enamel removal is non-invasive, and no anesthesia is required.
Expertise Meets Artistry
Poorly done veneers are easily spotted from a mile away. Dr. Patel avoids pitfalls, including veneers that appear bulky or large on small teeth or teeth which stick out too far, by paying exact attention to detail and precision. The attention to the art of the veneer allows Dr. Patel to place your veneer so that it blends perfectly with your natural teeth.
