Porcelain Veneers or Professional Tooth Whitening


If you have always wanted a beautiful smile, but aren’t quite sure how to get there, call and schedule a no obligation smile makeover consultation with Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills.

Dr. Ringer is past president and an Accredited Fellow with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and knows about beautiful smiles.

For some, all that is needed is a professional tooth whitening session, while others may require more extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures such as cosmetic dental bonding or porcelain veneers.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are thin sheets of dental grade porcelain that fit over the tops of teeth. Because you want them to look natural, your cosmetic dentist in Anaheim Hills will need to remove a portion of the tooth. This gives your new smile a natural look. If you have ever seen someone whose teeth don’t look natural, they probably had a dentist who really didn’t have the experience to place porcelain veneers.

Because porcelain veneers require some removal of the natural tooth, they are permanent. If you would like something that is less permanent, talk to your Anaheim Hills cosmetic dentist about cosmetic dental bonding.

What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a procedure that is done in a single dental appointment. If you and Dr. Ringer decide that bonding is a better choice for your chipped, broken, stained or cracked teeth, your cosmetic dentist in Orange County will use a shade guide to match the rest of the tooth.

At the beginning of the bonding process, Dr. Ringer will prep the tooth by etching it with a conditioning solution. This makes for a stronger bond.

Once the solution has been applied, your cosmetic dentist in Orange County will begin the process by sculpting the dental resin in to place. After application, Dr. Ringer and his team will check for color, size and shape before using a light or laser to harden or cure the dental bond.

Professional Tooth Whitening

If you are one of the lucky ones who only need a touch up now and again, talk to Dr. Ringer about professional tooth whitening. Tooth whitening can lighten your teeth up to 10 shades. If you are a good fit for professional tooth whitening, you can choose to have your teeth lightened in the office, or with custom made take home whitening trays. Both are great solutions for natural teeth. If you have restorations, professional tooth whitening will not work.

If you would like more information regarding professional tooth whitening, porcelain veneers are cosmetic dental bonding, call and schedule a no obligation consultation with Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills today.
