For patients who are looking for a rapid change to the appearance of their smile, dental veneers in Sacramento are a fantastic option — veneers are even utilized by the biggest names in Hollywood currently! Since people like Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, Jalen Rose, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Katy Perry are already using veneers, we figure it’s worth your consideration at the very least.
That’s a fair question. Dental veneers are thin pieces of material (often comprised of porcelain) that are used to recreate your tooth’s natural look. Veneers are also expertly crafted to provide strength and exhibit resilience that is comparable to your natural tooth and its enamel.
Dental veneers can be utilized to position alterations or to change the shape or size of the tooth. Patients also utilize veneers to change their tooth color.
Porcelain laminate veneers, for instance, consist of several thin ceramic layers — designed to replicate and replace original tooth enamel and act as an adhesive layer.
During the application process, after your dental veneers have been custom-designed in a lab, we’ll need to remove a very small amount of the original tooth (generally less than one millimeter) in order to prep. We do this as a means to create space for the porcelain veneer, ensuring proper fitting. This also ensures optimum tooth functionality, all while creating a better-looking version of the original tooth.
We make sure to form a strong bond between original tooth and porcelain veneer. This is critical to achieving aesthetic perfection as well as achieving correct veneer function. We then place a light-sensitive resin between the original tooth and the veneer, which we harden with a special instrument called a curing light.
For those looking for a successful option in a situation where there is tooth discoloration, slight bite misalignment, or improper tooth shape and/or contour, dental veneers are an exciting, feasible, affordable option.Veneers are a great choice for fractured teeth, to, as well as correcting any gaps between the teeth.
