Chronic dental stains brought on by frequently consuming dark beverages, eating certain foods, and using tobacco can hamper your self-esteem. A dental bleaching treatment at Plaza Dental Care will certainly whiten your smile. However, without the necessary lifestyle changes, the results will only be temporary.
If you are remiss to change some of your habits, Dr. Khashayar Khomejany might recommend a physical restoration of your smile using dental veneers. This might also include restoring certain teeth with a porcelain dental crown.
The veneers are basically thin shells that are made from a special porcelain-ceramic material. They are meticulously crafted in a dental lab to fit over the faces of the teeth in your smile. Once they have been cemented in place, they will be indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel.
The porcelain veneers will not be as receptive to stains as natural tooth enamel. This will make it easy to prevent stains from setting into your smile in the future.
After a brief examination of the teeth in your smile, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth and create a detailed impression of your teeth. This will be sent to a dental lab to be used as a guide for crafting your custom porcelain dental veneers.
Any teeth that have been significantly compromised by old dental work or shallow tooth enamel might need to be prepared for a porcelain dental crown restoration.
We will call you to schedule the second appointment when your veneers and any porcelain crowns are ready. During this appointment, your dentist will cement your new dental veneers in place.
If you live in the Vallejo, California, area and your smile needs cosmetic restoration, you should call 707-642-1360 to schedule a consultation at Plaza Dental Care.
