Did you know that your teeth have power? This is because people with a beautiful smile are perceived as happier, more confident, and more successful. What does your smile say about you? Is it making the right first impression? If not, porcelain veneers may be the solution you're looking for, and Dr. Tae Chung, your premiere dentist in Poway can help.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Have you ever admired those beautiful Hollywood smiles? Did you know that many of those smiles have been enhanced with porcelain veneers? A veneer is a thin layer of customized porcelain that is bonded directly over your tooth structure. Veneers can be used to repair one tooth, or enhance an entire smile. They're ideal for repairing dental issues such as:
- Gaps and spacing between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Small fractures or chipping
- Misshapen teeth
- Stains or discoloration
What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers offer patients numerous benefits other than just enhancing your smile. Because of the direct bonding to your teeth, they add strength and longevity to your teeth. They're easy to take care of, as you'll be able to brush and floss with ease. Veneers are stain resistant, which means they won't discolor at the rate of your natural tooth and you won't have to worry about whitening them. They're also very durable, as with good home care and regular dental checkups, they can potentially last for many years.
Am I a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Dr. Chung can evaluate your teeth and discuss your goals and desires for your smile with you during a simple consultation appointment. He'll be able to make treatment recommendations based on your individual needs. While veneers work well for most patients, there may be other treatment options available to you that Dr. Chung can explain. This empowers you to make the right decisions for your oral health.
