Porcelain Veneers in Petaluma
Call today to hear more about our state of the art, custom-designed Porcelain Veneers in Petaluma. The Cypress Dental team is eager to set you up with the best Porcelain Veneers in Petaluma.
Porcelain Veneers are customized shells of ceramic or porcelain that offer a new surface atop your teeth like a cover bonded over your underlying teeth with a strong adhesive. Veneers are tailored explicitly to the color and shape of teeth, proceeding a stunning and far more importantly, natural smile.
Are Porcelain Veneers for you?
These days, with modern technology breaking new ground every day, dentistry offers a vast array of solutions to treat any and every cosmetic or structural issue. Veneers are a relatively pain-free choice for several of our most oft-treated conditions, such as:
- Uneven Spacing
- Crooked Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
- Mismatched Sizing
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
The process begins with a visit to our Cypress Dental office where you and your oral professional will review your goals, options, expectations so we can design tailor-made Porcelain Veneers for your specific needs. At this consultation, we will take a teeth impression to begin crafting your new Veneers.
When you return for your next visit, we will provide you with a preliminary set of temporary Porcelain Veneers. We achieve this by removing small portions of enamel from your affected teeth. This minor reduction is a critical step of the process, as it allows for the laying of your new veneer flatly over your natural teeth with a dab of removable glue.
Treat your temporary veneers with care by gently brushing your teeth twice a day and by avoiding any harder foods that may misalign or dislodge them.
When your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to Cypress Dental for one final visit. This time your dentist will replace the temporary veneers with your concluding set of permanent veneers. The first step of this final phase begins with the application of an adhesive that will allow for an advanced look at your new smile. At this point, you will be allowed to voice any thoughts or concerns so that the appropriate adjustments may occur before the final step.
Once you're feeling good about your appearance, your dental specialist will meticulously clean the underlying teeth and bond the porcelain veneer into place permanently. When this last stage is complete, you're all set to unveil your brand new shining smile to the good folks of Petaluma and beyond!
We recommend for patients recovering from this procedure to allow themselves time for plenty of rest. Should you experience any discomfort or pain during recovery, over the counter medications can be of help. A cold compress is also helpful in alleviating any swelling that may occur. Here are some essential things to keep in mind to ensure that the recovery process goes as smoothly as possible:
- Develop a nutritious diet
- Go easy on solid foods like apples or carrots
- Avoid biting fingernails or other such habits
- Maintain good oral hygiene habits
- Cut down on liquids that can weaken or stain the bond, like alcohol, tobacco, red wine, coffee, tea, etc
- Keep up your routine visits to Cypress Dental
With proper oral care, you can rest assured that your shining new smile will shine for years! Call Cypress Dental today to begin your journey toward the best Porcelain Veneers in Petaluma.
