What do you see when you smile at yourself in the mirror? If you are like most people, you do not see a dazzling, perfectly straight smile with no gaps and the perfect balance between gums and teeth. However, with porcelain veneers, that is exactly what you could be looking at every time you pass by a mirror.
At Pope Dental, we offer dental veneers as just one of many cosmetic dentistry options for our patients in Walnut Creek, CA. The process for this service is painless and the results are incredible, but how can one procedure fix all of the issues listed above? Porcelain veneers are extremely thin porcelain shells that are made to simulate the look and feel of perfectly aligned teeth.
So, when you come in for porcelain veneers, your dentist will shave off a very thin layer from the fronts of your teeth. Then we will take an impression of your teeth so that we can have your veneers made to fit you perfectly. When your veneers are ready, we will do a final fitting and cement them permanently to your teeth.
The benefits of dental veneers are seemingly endless. If your gums descend too far over your teeth, they can create a gummy smile that makes your teeth look short and underdeveloped. With veneers that are just slightly longer than your natural teeth, you can get a more balanced look. If you have gaps between your teeth, we can create your veneers so that they are slightly wider than your teeth to fill in the gaps and create a more uniform smile.
Better still, if you have cracks or chips in your teeth, veneers can not only cover these, but they can also protect your teeth from further damage. So you can get a more beautiful smile while protecting your dental health at the same time.
When you visit Pope Dental for porcelain veneers, Dr. Pope will gladly consult with you about how to improve your smile and the best options for you. If you decide that veneers are the best choice for you, we can usually get the process started the same day that you come in for your consultation.
