Have you decided that it’s time to take important steps to improve the appearance and vitality of your smile? If so, you’ll be happy to read that our team of comprehensive dentists near you at North County Dental Group provides a range of smile makeover treatments, including one of the most popular – dental veneers.
Our dentists use dental veneers to cover and correct several minor smile imperfections in patients of all ages. Patients benefit from corrections such as changing the size, shape, and color of teeth and closing gaps between teeth without the use of aligner therapy.
Plus, depending on the type of material used for your dental veneers from our dentists in Poway, CA, the cosmetic treatment can last for ten or more years. The most commonly used materials for dental veneers are porcelain or composite bonding, and our dental care team will discuss the pros and cons, including cost differences and durability, when you visit North County Dental Group for your veneer consultation.
Some even greater news about dental veneers is that they don’t require any special treatment after you’ve received them. Just brush and floss your teeth as you would regularly, but try to avoid eating hard foods like ice since it could cause cracking or loosening of your veneer. If you are prone to grinding your teeth at night, you may consider wearing a mouthguard as an added safeguard.
The best candidates for dental veneers are patients who want to make minor smile improvements to the shape, color, and appearance of their teeth. For example, veneers are a great choice to cover a cracked tooth or a tooth resistant to professional teeth whitening. However, it’s important to point out that dental veneers cannot be placed over a tooth that is currently decayed. Also, if you are prone to grinding your teeth, veneers may not be the best treatment without the use of a nightguard.
If you’re wondering whether or not you’re a candidate for dental veneers or any of the other cosmetic dentistry procedures available from our dentists in Poway, CA, we invite you to make an appointment now using our convenient online booking tool.
