Dental veneers are a highly-requested cosmetic dental treatment available today. Veneers are very thin and custom-made shells designed to cover your teeth’ front surface. At Tooth Love, Dr. Joanna Jefferson is pleased to provide Irvine, California, patients with solutions to improve their smile, including dental veneers. These restorations are used to address many imperfections within the smile.
Dental veneers are created from porcelain or composite resin, and they are bonded to the surface of the teeth using a special bonding adhesive. Dr. Joanna Jefferson will first prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the front of a tooth. Doing this ensures that the veneers will fit snugly over your natural teeth. The area is roughened as well to ensure proper adhesion. Impressions are made to create molds of the prepared teeth and send them to a dental laboratory to fabricate the veneer. Patients return to the Lake Oswego, Oregon practice to have their final restoration bonded in place.
Veneers are used to enhance the appearance of your smile by correcting problems such as tooth discoloration, gaps between teeth, and misshapen or chipped teeth. These imperfections often impact the teeth near the front of the smile and make patients feel somewhat self-conscious about how they look when laughing, smiling, and talking with others. Veneers are most appropriate for the teeth near the front of the smile that are most noticeable when socializing, while teeth near the back of the mouth may be fixed with dental crowns instead.
