Fontana Porcelain Veneers
Many of the celebrity smiles we admire are often the result of porcelain veneers. And the good news is, these bright, white, dazzling smiles can be easier to obtain than one may think. Dental veneers can be used to straighten teeth, correct chips, close gaps, lengthen, change tooth shape and brighten your smile. Complete smile transformations can be made in as little as two to three appointments with porcelain veneers at Fontana dental clinic, Hope Family Dentistry.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain or dental veneers are customized thin shells of porcelain or resin composite that are affixed to the front of your teeth. The material is color matched to the tooth shade of your choice. Even though the porcelain shell is very thin, it is incredibly durable. Similar to your natural tooth enamel, porcelain veneers are translucent and reflect light properties keeping your teeth and smile looking natural.
During your dental veneer consultation explain to your Fontana dentist exactly what you would like corrected with veneers. Our doctors will make sure veneers truly are the best course of action for you. In some cases, simple bonding will suffice and in other cases, veneers may not be an option just yet. Depending on the issue at hand; orthodontics, dental crowns or other dental procedures may be a better option or need to take place prior to veneers to achieve your desired results.
Once you have been given the green light on veneers an x-ray and impressions of your teeth will be taken. Our dentist will then most likely remove a very small layer of the teeth receiving the veneers. The same thickness removed is about the thickness of your new veneers. Once the layers have been removed an impression of your mouth will be taken. This mold is then sent to the dental lab where your new veneers are fabricated. Until your next visit, temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth. Together you and your Hope Family Dentistry dentist will pick a tooth shade you think best fits your new smile!
In about 2-4 weeks your new veneers should be complete and application can begin. Once you and Dr. Gochez are satisfied with the shape, size, color and fit, your teeth will be prepped to receive the veneers. The veneers will then be permanently bonded. Once adhered, Dr. Gochez will make sure a proper bite is taking place and then you are all set with your new confident smile.

Caring for Dental Veneers
Care for your veneers just as you would your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily and be sure to not miss your 6-month dental checkups. If you grind your teeth at night (bruxism) be sure to wear your mouthguard or bite splint to bed. You will wear down porcelain veneers just as you do natural teeth and they can be expensive to replace. With proper care, veneers should last you 7-15 years. Porcelain veneers are an incredibly popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that gives thousands of people a more confident smile year after year.
