As the years roll by, chips, stains, and other imperfections can have a negative impact on your smile. This can be especially troublesome if your chosen profession involves a lot of personal interaction. Fortunately, our Newport Healthy Smiles team is experienced in a wide range of cosmetic treatments.
One of the more popular options we might recommend for restoring your smile is disguising your imperfections with a dental veneer in Newport Beach, California. This treatment often requires two separate appointments for your dentist, Dr. Johnny Wong, to fit your smile with porcelain dental veneers.
The veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are custom-made in a dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material is shaded to look just like natural teeth.
Your dentist will first want to examine your smile to make sure each tooth has sufficient enamel to securely mount a veneer. If one or two of your teeth lack the sufficient enamel to mount a veneer, your dentist might recommend having it restored with a porcelain crown.
Your dentist will then create an impression of each tooth in your smile. This impression will be sent to our state-of-the-art dental lab where your porcelain veneers will be custom crafted.
We will call you back into Newport Healthy Smiles for a second appointment once the lab technician has completed the veneers. To install the veneers, your dentist will remove a small amount of the enamel from the face of each tooth to make room for the veneer. Then, each veneer will be carefully cemented into place.
If you are interested in improving your imperfect smile, you should call Newport Healthy Smiles at 949-642-9928 to see if you’re a good candidate for dental veneers.
