Are you familiar with the form of cosmetic dentistry known as porcelain veneers? They are often called instant smile makeovers because they can address so many issues. At Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA, we offer a long list of cosmetic treatments and would be glad to meet with you and discuss the many problems solved by porcelain veneers, and whether they are the right answer for you.

A Look at Dental Veneers

To be sure you understand what veneers are and do, let’s take a moment to define them. They are thin and strong shells of porcelain that are specially designed for your individual teeth. Each is designed to address problems with your teeth, but they require only two visits to be completed.

A bit of the enamel on your teeth has to be removed to make room for each veneer, and once the lab returns your custom veneers, they are bonded to your teeth. As you might guess, they are a permanent solution, but with excellent oral hygiene and regular visits, you can rely on your veneers for many years to come. Once properly fitted, and with your bite tested for comfort, you then leave the office with a corrected smile that looks and functions perfectly.

The Problems Solved By Porcelain Veneers

As your chosen cosmetic dentist in Stockton, we would recommend dental veneers for a long list of issues. For instance, some of the most common problems solved by porcelain veneers include:

  • Deeply stained teeth that cannot be whitened
  • Teeth that are cracked or chipped
  • Mildly misaligned smiles
  • Teeth that are uneven in size or length
  • Smiles that have wide gaps

These are but some of the common problems solved by porcelain veneers, and we can combine the use of veneers with other cosmetic treatments to give you a full smile makeover. For example, we can whiten teeth before we make your veneers and ensure your smile is both corrected and brightened.
