If you have never heard of porcelain veneers, you may be astonished to discover just how many cosmetic dentistry issues they can help overcome. This is why Drs. Doug and Dax Martin of Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA are so happy to offer porcelain veneers to patients who can benefit from them.
What sort of issues can dental veneers address? The list includes:
- Gapped teeth
- Broken, chipped or cracked teeth
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Teeh of uneven size or length
- Permanently stained teeth
- Decayed and damaged teeth
They can do this because they are custom made to each patient’s needs. Porcelain veneers are a lot like they sound – a thin layer of durable porcelain that is dyed to match the natural teeth. They are prepared to address whatever issues you face, and then laboratory made to your exact measurements and specifications.
To apply dental veneers, the doctors will have to prepare the individual teeth. This means removing a slim layer of the original, natural enamel, and bonding the new, specialized veneers to your teeth. In just two office visits, patients who opt to use porcelain veneers can see a long list of problems dealt with permanently.
Though dental veneers do need regular cleaning and upkeep, and may need to be replaced after many years, they are a wonderful and durable solution. In addition to being a major element in cosmetic dentistry, a lot of experts trust in them for restorative work as well. After all, it is not only a cosmetic issue when a tooth is badly cracked or chipped. That tooth is now compromised, and a cosmetic dentist, like Drs. Doug and Dax Martin can properly prepare the damaged tooth and bond the veneer to its surface. This strengthens and protects the tooth, restoring it to the fullest use possible after sustaining damage.
When you do not want the extensive changes to the teeth that are required by dental crowns, and when you don’t want to wait for lengthier treatments such as orthodontics, the use of dental veneers is a perfect choice. Imagine getting a whole new smile in a matter of just a few weeks…that is possible if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers.
