At Panoramic Dental, we know that not everyone is as lucky as others when it comes to their genetics. The way your smile and teeth look depends as much on your genetics as on how you take care of them. You can brush and floss daily and still have surface stains that ruin your smile. Now is a good time to find out more about veneers and how they work before you schedule your first visit with us.

What are Dental Veneers?

If you ever had a table or another piece of furniture with a veneer exterior, you already have an idea of what dental veneers are. They are essentially small covers designed to match the natural shape and style of your teeth. Once we apply them, we can shape the veneers to make them look as natural as your stained and damaged teeth do. You can choose from composite and porcelain veneers as well as ceramic veneers. You can also opt for dental implants in La Morinda through us.

How Does Panoramic Dental Apply Veneers?

It can take up to three appointments or more for us to apply your veneers. We start by numbing your mouth and then shaping your teeth, which requires the removal of some of your natural enamel. After taking a mold of your mouth for the lab, we give you temporary veneers. You need to return your permanent veneers, which we apply to your teeth with cement. Though the cement dries quickly, we also use a special light that forms the durable bond needed. You need to follow up with our office a few weeks later.


Why You Should Choose Veneers

Veneers are the best option for teeth that have a lot of stains, especially if they do not respond to teeth whitening. While teeth whitening works for many patients, it does not work on all types of surface stains. Veneers hide those stains behind a thin material that looks like your natural tooth. A veneer can also hide a chipped tooth or one that shows a lot of wear and tear. We recommend veneers for patients with large gaps and uneven spaces between their teeth, too.

Cosmetic Dentistry and More

We offer all of the cosmetic dentistry help you might need such as veneers and dental implants. With dental implants in La Morinda, patients get the smiles they want because the implants hide their missing teeth. Implants also come in handy if you need a tooth extracted because of damage or decay. During your first visit, we can talk about your smile goals and wants and come up with the right treatment plan that includes one or more procedures. Call Panoramic Dental today to see how you can get started on creating the perfect smile you always wanted.
