Flashing a smile can be embarrassing if you have stained, chipped or widely spaced teeth that make you self-conscious. The good news is that our team at Fullerton Dental Care offers porcelain dental veneers to help you achieve your dream smile. We would be happy to tell you more about what it’s like to have dental veneers and how they need to be cared for.
When you are receiving dental veneers, we remove a thin layer of tooth enamel from the treated teeth so the veneers have space, and then our dental lab will receive an impression of your smile so that they can begin to shade and custom craft the veneers to look like natural teeth. You can receive temporary dental veneers to protect your teeth until the process is complete. To place the veneers, our dentists etch the tooth surface a little and apply a strong dental cement to secure the veneers in place.
You can receive as much as 15 years of use from your veneers if they receive proper care such as daily brushing and flossing and frequent dental cleanings and exams. Risks to dental veneers include dark foods and drinks that stain and damaging dental habits such as chewing on fingernails and ice. Over time, the cement that holds the dental veneers in place can also naturally weaken and will need to be seen by the dentists every six months.
