A winning smile plays in your favor in so many situations in life. Many people with an imperfect smile will consult with Dr. Merchant and Dr. Nghiem to explore their cosmetic restoration options. If your teeth have imperfections like visible fillings, chips, or deep stains, you might be interested in restoring those teeth with dental veneers
Porcelain dental veneers are custom made in a dental lab to match the general shape of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material is shaded to look just like natural teeth. Of course, if you aren’t happy with the shape of one or two of your teeth, the veneers can also be slightly adjusted to make minor improvements.
Having the dental veneers molded and installed takes two separate appointments at Phillips Ranch - Family & Cosmetic Dentistry.
At your first appointment, our dentists will examine your teeth and take a few X-rays to assess. This is to make sure that there is sufficient strong enamel to support the veneers and address any possible cavities or past dental work. If one or more teeth lacks sufficient enamel or if you would like to make significant changes to the shape of the tooth, our dentists might recommend having the questionable tooth completely restored with a crown.
Once all the teeth have been addressed, Dr. Merchant and Nghiem with make an impression of your teeth. This is sent the dental lab where your custom dental veneers are made.
Once our dental lab has completed your veneers, Phillips Ranch - Family & Cosmetic Dentistry will call you in for the second appointment. A small amount of enamel will be removed from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.
