Veneers are a straightforward procedure. Usually, in just three visits to the Ontario Dental Center, you can completely makeover your smile. As effortless as that sounds, porcelain veneers in Ontario, CA, and elsewhere require considerable skill for the result to look, feel, and “operate” like a natural tooth. Fortunately, you have come to the right place for veneers that are shaped, sized, and shaded to your specifications. Ensuring they blend in with real teeth.
With a special interest in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Mukesh Patel routinely plans, prepares, and places veneers on teeth that are stubbornly stained and excessively worn. Likewise, he may determine you are an appropriate candidate for treatment with veneers to cover up gaps or spaces between the teeth or to cover up teeth with an undesirable shape. Using only the finest dental ceramics, veneers may be contoured with the features you want, such as whiter teeth, or shaped without the characteristics that detract from the appearance of your smile, such as chips and cracks. Think of veneers as flawless tooth material. Using advanced bonding agents, the flawless surface is cemented to the damaged, properly prepared tooth surface. In turn, this replacement tooth enamel hides signs of wear and tear and other cosmetic concerns. When you smile, people no longer see the too-short tooth or the discoloration that does not budge even with sophisticated bleaching systems.
When technical expertise meets artistry
Unfortunately, you can spot poorly done veneers from a mile away. Frequently, veneers for small teeth may appear overly bulky or large, and not look in proportion with the rest of the smile or face. When applied to the hard-to-miss “smile zone,” front teeth veneers may stick out too much, appear overly square, or mega-watt white and “plastic-y.” All of these characteristics add up to a very fake-looking smile, like the “false teeth” that plagued earlier generation dentures systems. Dr. Patel avoids these pitfalls with exact attention to detail and precision preparation of both the natural tooth structure and the veneer. A small amount of natural tooth material must be removed to make room for the veneer that is placed and bonded on top of your tooth’s enamel. The more natural structure that we can preserve, the better. Veneers can effortlessly blend in with natural enamel and optimally adhere to the structure underneath. They fit “just right,” and don’t protrude.
Veneers can transform your smile for the better if they are done right. Call (909) 414-3535 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Patel at the Ontario Dental Center.
