Porcelain Veneers Irvine
The best candidates for porcelain veneers in Irvine would like more than a minor change to the shape of their teeth (as achieved with bonding), but less of a change than the extensive shaping required with crowns. Veneers can disguise discoloration caused by root canal treatment, tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride use, or the presence of large resin fillings.
Advantages of Porcelain Veneers in Irvine CA:
- Resist discoloration and staining
- Very natural appearance
- Gum tissues tolerate porcelain well
- Requires less invasive procedure than for crowns
- They are a permanent fix that can be applied in two visits
Dental veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to adhere to the front of the natural tooth. The longest-lasting and most natural looking dental veneers are made from extra high-quality porcelain. Veneers are a strong, stain-resistant, and long-lasting remedy for most of the aesthetic issues an individual can have with their teeth: misalignment, uneven shape, abnormal spacing, worn edges, chips, cracks, breakage, and discoloration.
Veneers Irvine, CA
Veneers are bonded to the teeth much like acrylic fingernails are bonded to the natural nail. The surface of each treated tooth must be roughened with etching to ensure the best possible bond. Once this bond is established, the veneer is basically a part of the natural tooth. Along with the etching of the tooth surface, about 0.1 to 0.5 millimeters of enamel is removed from the edges of the natural tooth and replaced with the veneer. If a porcelain veneer becomes cracked or chipped, it must be completely replaced rather than repaired. Veneers can be made to be as thin as a contact lens or thicker to conceal discoloration or other problems.
