Did you know you can completely transform the appearance of your smile in a single dental appointment? Your smile can go from mediocre to magnetic with the help of beautiful porcelain veneers provided by Redlands Family Dentistry. Our Redlands, CA, dental practice utilizes advanced materials and techniques, and offers the option of same-day porcelain veneers for the right patients.
About Porcelain Veneers
Custom-made veneers are bonded to the surface of treated teeth, providing a wafer-thin, porcelain shell that conceals imperfections. These restorations are precisely shaped to completely renew the appearance of your teeth, providing a more attractive, yet completely natural look.
Veneers can conceal chips and cracks, gaps and discoloration. They can change the shape of a tooth, creating a wider or elongated effect and more pleasing symmetry. Some patients choose to treat one or a few teeth, and others desire a complete transformation with veneers placed over all the teeth that show when you smile.
The luminous porcelain is designed to blend in naturally with surrounding teeth, and our dentists provide the option of teeth whitening to further enhance your smile. Veneers can be created in any shade to brighten your smile and light up your whole face.
Our Veneers Process
Porcelain veneers are usually created by an off-site lab using data and instructions provided by the dentist for individual patients. At Redlands Family Dentistry, our advanced technologies allow us to create veneers right in the office, so patients can complete the process in a single appointment.
Your initial consultation will include an exam to assess your oral health and candidacy for cosmetic dentistry procedures. It is important to take care of any cavities or gum disease before beginning the veneers procedure. Our practice offers full service dentistry, including restorative and general dental care.
To start the dental veneers procedure, you will first receive numbing anesthesia to ensure your complete comfort. The dentist will remove a very small amount of enamel from the surface of the teeth to allow room for the veneers. Then, an scan is taken of the teeth, and this 3-D computerized data is digitally transferred to our CEREC® milling machine. The machine produces beautiful, lab-quality veneers to the dentist’s design specifications.
The veneers are bonded onto your prepared teeth, and the dentist performs any needed alterations to achieve the optimal fit and color. The entire process usually takes a few hours. For many patients, the degree of transformation is remarkable, and they love leaving the office with a brand new smile. These beautiful, durable veneers are made to last for years with proper care.
