SAN FRANCISCO AND SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA – Many of our patients are concerned about certain aspects of their smiles. Tooth stains, discolorations, chips or cracks may be keeping you from smiling your brightest.
Dental veneers can fix all of these problems.
San Francisco implant dentistry pro Dr. Greg Larson loves giving his patients their dream smiles. He is well trained in sculpting beautiful smiles using the laws of golden proportion science. He studies the symmetry, angles and shapes of the face with our master ceramist to determine the most aesthetic outcome. Dr. Larson is passionate about dental arts, and he currently instructs other dentists in the art of a cosmetic smile.
What are dental veneers?
Veneers are made from tooth-colored porcelain. They are thin and durable, and they are applied to the front of your natural teeth. Your veneers will feel natural and comfortable – no different from your other teeth. Dr. Larson uses the latest porcelain techniques, which deliver strong and lasting results. The translucency of the special porcelain will provide the most natural looking smile.
Veneers are similar to crowns, but applying veneers is less invasive to your teeth. Porcelain is a popular choice for veneers because it’s strong and it closely resembles the color of your natural teeth. Our gum tissues can be sensitive, but porcelain won’t irritate your gums. Your cosmetic dentist prepares your teeth and then takes a mold of them. Your veneers are custom made by artisan ceramists. You’ll come back for a second appointment where your dentist will apply and bond your dental veneers to your natural teeth.
Dental veneers will increase the wattage of your smile. Your surrounding teeth may be less white in comparison, so you may consider professional tooth whitening before your veneer application to further enhance your smile. While you may have replaced a missing tooth with dental implants, problems with surrounding teeth may be aided with dental veneers.
How do I maintain my dental veneers?
Porcelain resists stains, and you will be able to eat, drink and smile normally with dental veneers. You won’t have to treat your veneers differently than your normal teeth. Maintain a good oral hygiene routine to keep your veneers and your natural teeth healthy and strong. Brush, floss and see your dentist regularly.
I want dental veneers!
Your dentist will make sure you’re a candidate for dental veneers, meaning your teeth are healthy and free of decay. Discuss the benefits of dental veneers with your dentist or hygienist at your regular teeth cleaning appointment. Call our office to set up an appointment with our San Francisco dentist.
Your smile is most often the first feature people notice. An imperfect smile can dampen your self-esteem and make you want to hide your pearly whites. We want you to smile confidently every day, and porcelain veneers may give you a reason to.
We know your smile is important to you, and we will work with you to create a smile that is beautiful, healthy and uniquely yours, says San Francisco invisalign expert.
