Temecula, CA Porcelain Veneers
For many in need of minor to moderate aesthetic corrections to their smiles, porcelain veneers create seamless and beautiful results. Dr. Byron L Carr and our team provide veneers in Temecula as a minimally invasive way to help you achieve a bright new smile.
How Veneers Work
When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Carr helps you determine whether veneers are the best solution to correct aesthetic flaws present in your smile. Qualifying patients will have their teeth shaped prior to the placement of the veneers, creating an ideal environment to support natural-looking restorations. These shells are then bonded to the surface of the tooth, allowing them to support regular functions such as speech and chewing.
The Benefits of Veneers
Our Temecula veneers are made using durable dental porcelain. These shells are also resistant to staining, making them ideal for patients looking for long-lasting results. Veneers are also suitable for patients who have experienced staining or intrinsic discoloration to teeth, which cannot be corrected by normal topical bleaching treatments.
Minor spacing issues can be corrected with the use of veneers as well, allowing our Temecula cosmetic dentist to balance patients’ smiles. Veneers create even smiles, balancing the alignment teeth and creating ideal smile symmetry.
For patients are looking to correct spacing issues only between certain teeth, teeth can even be whitened prior to the placement of your veneers, allowing you to have a uniformly white smile. As veneers are resistant to staining, they cannot be whitened after placement and will require patients to undergo bleaching beforehand.
Candidates for Porcelain Veneers in Temecula
In order to successfully place veneers, soft tissues and surfaces of target teeth must be healthy and free of decay. If patients are experiencing significant decay in the tooth enamel, the placement of a porcelain crown will better serve their needs.
Dr. Carr works with patients prior to placement to ensure that veneers are the ideal solution for their cosmetic goals. Should you be better served by cosmetic dental restorations, we will help you to achieve an ideally healthy and aesthetic smiles through bridges, dentures, crowns, or whatever treatment best meets your needs.
Caring for Veneers
Patients with veneers are encouraged to maintain a healthy hygiene routine, including regular brushing and flossing. Patients in the habit of chewing ice and other hard foods may crack or damage the porcelain, and should curb these activities to preserve their veneers. Clenching and grinding of the teeth can also lead to cracked veneers, and can necessitate the use of a mouth guard in order to support the lasting results.
