Porcelain Veneers in Rohnert Park
Porcelain Veneers are the cosmetic dentistry standard for creating a phenomenal looking smile.
They are essentially custom shells for your teeth that are made from ceramic material.
Dr. Sutton applies the veneers over the tooth surface to —
- Cover uneven tooth alignment
- Hide uneven tooth spacing
- Mask wear and tear in the enamel of the tooth
- Conceal cracks and/or chips
Porcelain is an unbelievably durable material that is resistant to stains and will not decay. It also closely resembles natural tooth enamel in texture and in color. For these reasons, porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentist’s choice tool for creating natural, beautiful smiles.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Below is a list of some of the main benefits that porcelain veneers provide in cosmetic dentistry:
- A radiant, bright, and beautiful smile
- A natural look and feel
- Beautifully white teeth
- Durability and resistance
Teeth Whitening vs. Porcelain Veneers
Teeth whitening is a process that is typically designed for only slightly discolored teeth. For more severe cases, porcelain veneers are the most effective alternative for creating that gorgeous smile you so desire.
Keep in mind that the cosmetic dentistry procedure for installing porcelain veneers includes alteration of the original tooth. So alternatively, if your natural teeth are aesthetically adequate and functionally adequate, veneers may not be the best option for your specific case.
During your consultation, if you and Dr. Sutton conclude that porcelain veneers are the best option for your individual needs, then he will discuss with you the additional added benefits.
Beyond looking fantastic, porcelain veneers protect the surface of the damaged tooth underneath. In many cases, the use of porcelain veneers may completely avoid the need for invasive tooth preparations. An example of this would be a dental crown.
Also, teeth are placed under more stress when undergoing less conservative dental procedures. If this can be avoided with a treatment that provides the same finished result, we always recommend the procedure that places the least amount of stress on your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers are very thin and require minimal reshaping of the tooth that they will be bonded to.
