Transform Your Smile with Dental Veneers
How would you like to visit our Laguna Niguel cosmetic dentist, then return home with dramatically whiter, straighter, fuller teeth?
With dental veneers, you can.
Planning Your Veneer Treatment
Because veneers can make such a significant impact on how you look when you talk, laugh, or smile, Dr. Michelle Eng will want to know what your goals and priorities are for tooth shape, size, and color. As we plan the design together, we may also schedule a diagnostic wax up model that allows you to preview the veneers before the permanent version is made.
At your first treatment appointment, we will gently reshape the enamel and take an impression, before applying temporary veneers over the teeth to prevent sensitivity. About two weeks later, your custom designed veneers are ready to bond permanently in place.
Comfortable sedation options are available, upon request!
Depending on your smile’s anatomy, you may prefer anywhere from 6-10 veneers, or more. Schedule a veneer consultation in Laguna Niguel today for additional information.
What are Cosmetic Veneers?
A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that we bond to the front of each individual, visible tooth. When you smile, it looks like natural teeth you see, but it’s actually the veneers with your real teeth tucked behind them.
Michelle Eng, DDS frequently recommends dental veneers to correct aesthetic concerns such as:
- Crooked, crowded teeth
- Discoloration and staining
- Misshaped enamel
- Uneven teeth
- Chips, gaps, or wear
What’s the Difference Between a Dental Crown and a Veneer?
Although both made by hand from porcelain, a veneer covers the anterior surface of the tooth that’s visible when you smile, talk, or laugh. A crown however, covers the entire tooth surface up to the gumline. Both look beautiful, but one is for cosmetic reasons only while the other serves to structurally protect the tooth.
