A smile that has been left unappealing by chips, stains and old dental work can leave you feeling self-conscious. Fortunately, Pelandale Dental Care’s team of dentists are highly trained and experienced in a wide range of cosmetic dental applications. One of the most effective ways to address multiple teeth with multiple imperfections is to install custom dental veneers.
These are basically special porcelain shells that are custom crafted in a dental lab to fit over the face of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material can be shaded to look just like natural tooth enamel, only brighter. As an added bonus, the porcelain material is less receptive to future stains, so your smile will stay white with only a minimal amount of maintenance.
Your Pelandale Dental Care dentist will examine the teeth in your smile and take a few X-rays to assess the tooth enamel. If one or more teeth lack sufficient enamel to anchor a veneer, the dentist might recommend replacing all of the tooth enamel with a porcelain crown.
They will then make an impression of the teeth in your smile. This is sent the dental lab where your custom dental veneers are custom crafted.
We will call you in for the second appointment, when your veneers are completed. A small amount of enamel will be removed from the face of each tooth before cementing your new dental veneers in place.
If you aren’t satisfied with your smile’s appearance, you should call Pelandale Dental Care’s Modesto, California clinic at 209.622.1444 to ask about custom dental veneers.
