Let Us Give You a Straighter & Brighter Smile!
Porcelain dental veneers are a popular choice for patients because they require a minimal amount of tooth reduction. They are made to be the exact same thickness and size as your natural teeth, and their shape, size and color can all be changed to match the rest of the teeth in your mouth. Dr. Heidari typically recommends veneers to cover uneven tooth alignment, worn-out tooth enamel or chipped and broken teeth.
The materials used in creating these pieces have evolved to the point where today’s veneers offer patients a look much closer to natural teeth than was ever available before. These veneers can help solve cosmetic issues such as:
- Worn enamel: Enamel is the hard, white material that covers your teeth. Over time, that substance may lose its color or become dulled. This could be genetic or a result of habits such as drinking soda or coffee, smoking and more.
- Aged/worn teeth: Your teeth naturally wear down as you age and become more susceptible to chips and breaks.
- Genetics: Some people simply are born with improper spacing between their teeth.
- Unevenness: If you grind your teeth at night or simply have given your teeth a lot of natural wear and tear, you could be susceptible to unevenness in your teeth.
Two Dental Veneer Choices Available
At our dental practice here in Aptos, our veneers come in both porcelain and composite resin materials. Both of these types of veneers can be custom-fabricated by our technicians in our dental labs, but composite veneers can even be fabricated directly inside your mouth. Porcelain veneers are more expensive, but they are proven to last longer.
Additional Benefits to Dental Veneers
In addition to the aesthetic benefits porcelain dental veneers provide, they also have a variety of functional benefits. They protect the surface of teeth that have been damaged and can even eliminate a person’s need to obtain a dental crown or root canal. Because these veneers are as thin as they are, you will likely not have to undergo significant tooth reshaping procedures when the veneers are fixed onto the teeth.
