Healthy and natural-looking teeth not only enhance the aesthetic appeal but maintain full functionality. Well-aligned, even teeth, make it easy to brush, floss, and maintain oral hygiene, preventing decay, plaque build-up, and gum disease.
Chipped teeth, discoloration, or damage to the tooth enamel can make the tooth look damaged and dull. If you are concerned about a damaged tooth that is impacting your confidence and smile, veneers may be the perfect solution.
At Smile Dental Practice, we have extensive experience, having handled hundreds of full mouth restorations and returning sparkle to countless smiles, with some of the most professional veneers Glendale has available. We believe in providing the best quality dental service, at affordable prices, while incorporating cutting-edge technology. Our aim is to work with each patient to customize their treatment plan after establishing a strong connection with them. We strive to understand their individual needs.
Dental veneers consist of a material that resembles the tooth which is placed on the damaged tooth to cover cracks, chips, discoloration or crooked alignment. The veneer is made of composites or porcelain that looks natural. In fact, once completed, it is difficult to distinguish between natural teeth and veneers.
Veneers serve both cosmetic and functional needs. Not only do they enhance the aesthetics of your smile by giving you a bright and white smile with even teeth, they also protect damaged teeth.
With veneers, there is no need for more extensive repairs or replacement of damaged teeth. Veneers also help protect the enamel of the tooth that tends to get worn out over time. People who have a habit of grinding teeth in their sleep- called bruxism- experience faster wear and tear of the outer enamel. When the enamel wears out, teeth tend to become ultra-sensitive to temperature changes in food, leading to pain and increased susceptibility to infections.
Veneers are also used to cover the discoloration or staining of teeth stemming from consuming excessive dark-colored foods and liquids like wine, dark berries or caffeine-containing foods like coffee, tea or soft drinks. Veneers also help cover wide gaps between teeth that some people naturally have.
The best way to find out if you are a candidate for veneers is to schedule an appointment at Smile Dental Practice. During the initial consultation, the dentist will evaluate your dental history and overall clinical condition to determine what course of treatment is best suited for you.
If you have severely damaged or discolored teeth with worn out enamel, you are an ideal candidate for veneers. Our team of dental professionals will discuss the appearance of your teeth, your best treatment options and what to expect before, during, and after the procedure. You can get all your queries answered at the initial consultation as well as discussing your goals with the doctor.
Smile Dental Practice is equipped with the latest, cutting-edge technology and a modern atmosphere that allows you to completely relax while you get the procedure done. With smart TVs and music systems in each room, you can listen to your favorite songs or watch a movie while the procedure is painlessly carried out. The procedure normally takes two visits to the dental office to complete.
During the initial visit, we will help you choose the right shade of the veneer to match your natural teeth while also giving you a preview of what your teeth will look like after the procedure. The tooth is then prepared for fitting the veneer. To prepare the tooth, a portion of the outer enamel is removed. The thickness of the removed surface matches the thickness of the veneer. The enamel is removed after administering a local anesthetic to ensure there is no pain or discomfort.
An impression of your tooth is then taken using a mold which is given to the dental lab to design a custom veneer. The veneer is then made, keeping in mind the surrounding teeth, and the shade you selected, to ensure the colors match to give an aesthetic, natural look. At the second visit, the prepared veneer is fitted on to the damaged tooth and fixed with an adhesive or cement. A light beam will be used to harden and set the bond. The result will be a more aesthetic, natural looking smile.
The veneer can last for several years with good follow-up care and proper oral hygiene routines. Dr. Haghverdian will explain in detail the follow-up care you need to take to protect the veneer from damage. If you tend to grind your teeth, you may be advised to wear a mouthguard to protect the veneer. Very hard foods may also damage the veneer.
Regular follow-up with Dr. Haghverdian will ensure you maintain the natural look provided from the veneers while also attending to your overall oral health.
