Dental patients with spaces between teeth or permanent discoloration often assume they have to undergo surgery or constant whitening to achieve the results they want. For the right candidates, however, porcelain veneers are able to address both issues and more in one procedure. Here are four reasons to choose dental veneers in Thousand Oaks, CA.
Although veneers do not physically move teeth, they have the ability to close obvious gaps and provide a more even appearance. Your cosmetic dentistry doctor will remove a small amount of enamel to prepare teeth for veneers. Then, he or she shapes and trims the porcelain pieces to create a perfect fit and eliminate gaps, chips, worn enamel, differing contours, and uneven teeth.
Because of how they mimic the way light reflects off the surface of teeth, porcelain veneers are designed to look extremely natural. Additionally, they are resistant to staining and create a vibrant smile. Dental veneers offer an instant whitening effect for patients with permanent stains, discoloration, or teeth of mismatching colors.
Many people prefer porcelain veneers to achieve their cosmetic dentistry goals because the procedure does not involve painful surgery or socially-discomforting braces. It is a simple, three-step process consisting of an initial consultation, preparatory appointment, and placement of veneers.
Perhaps the best benefit of dental veneers is their ability to solve many different problems in just one procedure, saving patients money, time, and stress. In fact, depending on the number of veneers involved, the entire process only takes a few hours. Additionally, with proper care, veneers are a low-maintenance option. They can last between seven and ten years before needing to be replaced.
