Thanks to Dr. Jack Ringer, past president and an accredited fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, porcelain veneers, along with most other types of cosmetic dentistry, including dental implants, are something that everyone can afford.
Unlike cosmetic dental crowns, which cover the entire tooth, porcelain veneers are crafted to fit over the fronts of your teeth. While there is some removal of the enamel, you will not need as much removed as you would for cosmetic dental crowns.
Porcelain veneers are made from dental grade porcelain and are matched to the rest of your smile. Because your cosmetic dentist in Anaheim Hills has been placing porcelain veneers for decades you will feel confident knowing you are in the right hands.
If you are considering any type of plastic surgery for your face, it can affect the way your new dental veneers feel and look. Even lip injections can affect the way that your porcelain veneers look and feel.
Remember, that veneers are customized for your smile. Just because you love Julia Roberts grin doesn’t mean it will look as good on you. According to your Anaheim Hills cosmetic dentist, dental veneers are unique to each patient. Dr. Ringer takes into account mouth size, facial structure, bite and they way your teeth work and fit together.
Keep in mind that you will wear temporary veneers unless you are opting for a same day procedure. One of the advantages of temporaries is that you can get a feel for your new porcelain veneers before they become permanent.
While your dentist is preparing your teeth for veneers, you may experience sensitivity, as some of the enamel needs to be removed before placement. This may or may not cause sensitivity.
Even if Dr. Ringer doesn’t have to remove much, if any enamel, some people are sensitive to the material that bonds the veneer to the natural tooth. If you are extremely sensitive, make sure you talk to your dentist in Orange County before proceeding with dental veneers.
While porcelain veneers can last for up to 15 years with proper care, they are an investment. While the upfront cost is not cheap, it is affordable as there are flexible payment plans that your Anaheim Hills cosmetic dentist may offer.
Veneers aren’t made for everyone. If you clench or grind your teeth or have a habit of chewing on ice, you may want to consider an alternative cosmetic dentistry procedure. In some cases, the surface of the tooth may not be large enough to support a porcelain veneer either. Talk to Dr. Ringer if you have weak or decayed teeth, as there are other alternatives that would be better suited to your smile.
