Veneers in Hayward, CA
Everyone wants a Hollywood-ready smile, but sometimes teeth become stained or discolored. You may have teeth that are too short or eroded, or you may have unsightly gaps between your teeth. Teeth can also become chipped or cracked. Veneers can be used to correct these problems and leave you with a healthy, natural-looking smile that you’re proud to show off to the world.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your teeth, covering up stains, chips, misshapen teeth, and other flaws. The veneers are custom-crafted to match your natural teeth’s size and color. The translucent veneers give your teeth a realistic appearance so no one will know the secret behind your beautiful smile.
Hollywood has been using veneers for decades. If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities keep their teeth red carpet ready, veneers are often the secret! Advances in technology have led to stronger, more durable veneers that are available to everyone. Our Hayward, CA dental office offers you porcelain veneers that are a long-lasting solution for many cosmetic issues.
To fit and place veneers, two visits are usually required to our dental office in Hayward, CA. In the first visit, we will take an impression of your teeth so that the veneers can be custom fitted for a comfortable, perfect fit that meets your expectations. You and your Highland Dental of Hayward dentist will decide on the correct shade to ensure the veneers look natural. We will prep your teeth for the veneers and then fit acrylic temporaries during this visit.
On your second visit, the veneers will be checked for proper fit and then bonded to the front of your teeth. Shaping and polishing can be done to make sure the veneers are the perfect shape and appearance you were hoping for. Once the veneers are in place, they are a solution that will last for several years before needing replacement.
Caring for Your Veneers
Veneers can be cared for just like natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. Follow-up visits every six months for a check-up and cleaning will ensure that the veneers give you a bright, even smile for years to come. Veneers are stain-resistant, so they will stay pearly white for years with a good oral care regimen.
You’ll want to avoid biting on hard objects like ice, hard candies, pens and pencils, metal, and bottles. The pressure can chip, crack, or dislodge your veneers. If you play contact sports, you will want to wear a mouth guard to protect your veneers.
