If you’ve ever had a bad haircut, you know how embarrassing it can feel to know you don’t look your best. If your hair is the problem, however, you can always regrow it or get a different cut. If your smile is the problem, things are harder to fix. Yet you can still get embarrassed just by imagining how people will notice the cracks, stains, and more. This is exactly where dental veneers can help. They will quickly give you the smile of your dreams and restore your confidence. Come to Roseville, CA dentist Dr. David B. Miller DDS to get one today!
Veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain or a similar material made to fit the front of your teeth individually. They are bonded to your teeth, so they will instantly cover up any problems like chips or cracks. As soon as they are placed, your smile is transformed. That’s why veneers are often called “instant orthodontics.” Veneers are also very durable. They protect your teeth by sealing up any damage and making it harder to injure the enamel underneath.
If you are looking to get a great smile and protect your teeth at the same time, dental veneers are for you. Here are some of the problems veneers can fix:
Our veneers are made from porcelain. This material is very durable but is slightly translucent like your enamel. It can also be colored to match your existing teeth or made whiter. You’ll have the effects of teeth whitening without the treatment. We have several varieties of porcelain veneers, including MAC, Empress, e.max, and feldspathic veneers. We also offer prepless Lumineers. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, and Roseville, CA dentist Dr. Miller will explain which he recommends for you.
First, Dr. Miller will carefully measure your teeth to make sure each veneer is made to fit properly. (If you need small gaps covered or uneven teeth straightened, the veneer will likely be made a little bigger.) Then a lab crafts your veneer to match.
Although veneers are incredibly thin, they would look out of place in your smile if we did not prepare your teeth first. This involves carefully removing a thin layer of enamel. Your veneer will then sit flush with your other teeth and look more natural. However, you can get Lumineers prepless veneer instead. These are made with a special material that is as durable as any porcelain veneer but much thinner. Lumineers are so thin that you don’t have to get any enamel removed, meaning Roseville, CA dentist Dr. Miller will not have to prepare your teeth first.
