Am I An Ideal Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers can be used to hide stains and chips on your teeth quickly, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are abnormally spaced or shaped. At Sunshine Dental, your veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. Dr. Bhakta will listen to your goals and concerns during your consultation to personalize your treatment plan. We can also determine if you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers by checking the overall health of your mouth. You should not have signs of gum disease or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw (known as bruxism).
What should I expect with cosmetic veneers?
After you decide on porcelain veneers and your specific treatment program, our team at Sunshine Dental will take physical or digital dental impressions. Your cosmetic veneers might be made in our office as you wait, or the impressions could be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain material. When your veneers are ready, we will take off a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates room for the veneers and improves the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts a long time. When your veneers are secured, our Corona, CA dentists may make small adjustments so your veneers fit comfortably for you.
Porcelain veneers FAQs
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers usually last 10 – 15 years if they are appropriately cared for and maintained. Sunshine Dental recommends brushing and flossing daily to maintain the long-term integrity of your veneers. It's also helpful to avoid hard or chewy foods as well as staining beverages that may discolor your teeth. Patients should call our dental clinic if they experience any problems with their veneers so we can help prevent damage.
Do porcelain veneers look natural?
Porcelain veneers are customized for each individual patient based on the appearance of their current smile. When placed correctly by a trained professional, porcelain veneers not only look natural but can also be more aesthetically pleasing than your natural teeth. Our team in Corona, CA, works hard to make sure each patient is satisfied with the look of their veneers before they are bonded to the teeth.
Does dental insurance cover porcelain veneers?
Dental insurance plans may not cover the costs of porcelain veneers, but it depends on your provider and individual plan. Patients should verify what treatments or procedures are covered under their plan, as well as the coverage limits. Our dental clinic can provide comprehensive information about costs and payment options after we've discussed your specific needs.
