Healthy Mouth Tips

Not everyone is born with a perfect, beautiful smile, and if you are one of those people, you might have wondered if cosmetic dentistry is right for you. If you have teeth that are not spaced right or are stained or are otherwise keeping you from having a smile you love to show the world, you might be a good candidate for porcelain veneers. Talk to your La Habra CA cosmetic dentist to learn more about porcelain veneers and to find out if they might be right for you.

Let’s take a look at what you might expect if you decide to undergo this cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Step One: The Consultation

Prior to becoming a porcelain veneers patient, you will need to come in for a consultation so your dentist can determine you are a good candidate. Generally, you will need to be in good oral health. It is also important to remember that porcelain veneers are permanent since your natural teeth will have to be prepared for them.

If you and your dentist decide that porcelain veneers are the best option to give you the smile you have been dreaming of, you will next design what the finished veneers will look like. Together with your dentist you will decide on the best shape, length, width, and color for your beautiful new smile.

Step Two: The Procedure

The entire porcelain veneers process generally takes about six weeks, and you will be required to visit your dentist for two appointments. After you and your dentist have determined the design for your veneers, treatment will start.

Treatment begins with some shaping of your natural teeth to prepare them for placement of the veneers. A mold will be made of your mouth, which is what will be used to custom-make the veneers just for you. When they are ready, they will be permanently on to your teeth. This usually takes place in a separate appointment.

Step Three: Post-Procedure Care

The nice thing about caring for your veneers is that you can follow the same regimen as you would for your natural teeth. Floss and brush daily, and visit your dentist regularly for exams and cleanings. If you care for them properly, your veneers could last as long as a decade!

Great personal care

Dr. Kenneth Cho is a dentist that we trust. My family and I have been going to his office for 20+ years. He was the first dentist for both of my children (now collage age), and they still go to him. He can take care of every need for oral health including braces. No need to go from place to place, and everyone in the office is friendly and helpful.
