Chronic staining issues can be more than just an inconvenience. They can also prove to be a serious hindrance to your self-confidence. Rather than live with a limited social life, many people with staining issues and other imperfections on the teeth will contact 21st Century Dental Care to explore their cosmetic dental solutions.
Dental veneers are often a convenient method for improving the appearance of your teeth and giving you an easy-to-maintain white smile. These custom-shaped porcelain shells are designed in a professional dental lab to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. They appear to look like healthy, white tooth enamel.
The dental-grade porcelain material that is used for the veneers will not be receptive to microscopic staining particles. Since stains can’t penetrate the porcelain, it will make it easy to keep your smile bright and white.
Dr. Vitaly Friedman will start by examining the teeth in your smile to make sure you have sufficient enamel to secure a veneer. If you have one or more teeth that have been compromised by a past filling or current cavity, he might recommend restoring the tooth enamel with a porcelain dental crown.
Your dentist will then remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth and then will make a detailed impression of those teeth in your smile. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.
When the veneers are ready, we will call you back in for a follow-up appointment. This appointment with involve cementing the porcelain shell into place.
