Porcelain Veneers
Sacramento CA

Woman smiling in Sacramento, CA after dental veneers procedure at Rho Family Dentistry Your teeth have several essential daily responsibilities. They enable you to bite and chew your food as well as help you to form specific words and sounds when you speak. The teeth also play an important aesthetic function in your mouth, helping to provide you with a beautiful and confident smile. Even minor flaws in your teeth can have a major impact on the appearance of your smile. Your confidence can suffer as well. At Rho Family Dentistry, we can correct minor flaws in your teeth with porcelain veneers.

Covering Minor Flaws

Veneers are a dental restoration designed to correct minor imperfections in teeth visible in your smile. They are thin shells that are bonded to the fronts of the affected teeth, effectively covering the entire surface and restoring a natural, beautiful appearance. Veneers can be made from either composite resin or porcelain. At Rho Family Dentistry, our veneers are made of porcelain. While both materials match the color of your teeth, porcelain veneers provide a much more natural appearance to your smile. Not only can they perfectly mimic the color of your enamel, but they also reflect light like enamel does as well. Porcelain is also much stronger than composite resin and can last much longer.

What Imperfections Can Veneers Fix?

Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a variety of different minor imperfections in your teeth.
•  Small chips or fractures in the outer layers of the teeth.
•  Minor alignment issues that do not affect your oral health, including small gaps between the teeth and slightly overlapping.
•  Teeth that are misshapen or smaller than the rest.
•  Tooth discoloration.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers cover over some minor dental imperfections, restoring the appearance of your smile. They provide several benefits, including:
•  Strength. Porcelain is stronger than composite resin and can stand up to more use. They also tend to last longer.
•  Bio-compatibility. Porcelain will not irritate your gum tissue.
•  Stain resistance.
•  Restored confidence.

Placing Your Porcelain Veneers

Placing your porcelain veneers typically takes two visits. During your first visit, we prepare the affected teeth and take impressions. Preparing the teeth, which is done under a local anesthetic, involves removing a small amount of the enamel from the fronts of each tooth. This creates the space necessary for your new veneers to fit in perfectly with your surrounding teeth. The impressions we take are sent to a dental lab, where your veneers are designed and created.

It can take a couple of weeks for your veneers to be completed. Once they have been sent back, you return for your second visit. During this visit, the veneers are checked for fit and bonded into place. Acid etch applied to each tooth, which creates a rough texture. The texture allows for a stronger bond between the tooth and the veneer. The acid is washed away, and the tooth is dried. Finally, using a special dental cement, the veneers are bonded into place.

Fixing even minor dental imperfections with restorative or cosmetic dentistry can greatly improve the quality of your smile, not to mention your confidence. To learn more and find out if porcelain veneers are right for you, call Rho Family Dentistry today at (916) 562-2755.
