You won’t believe just how much these simple restorations can make big changes for your smile.
Did you ever think that having a nice smile could actually help you get a job? Well, one study in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics found that it does. In this study, those with attractive smiles were believed to be smarter and have a better chance of getting a job than someone who has smile problems. Of course, the health of your smile affects your self-esteem and confidence too, so why not let our Moorpark, CA cosmetic dentist, Dr. Mehrsedeh Salem, give you a boost in both your appearance and self-confidence?
Our Moorpark dentist is a wizard when it comes to creating the aesthetically pleasing smile you want. If you are dealing with chips, cracks, discolorations, misshapen or uneven teeth, or you want to cover up small gaps between teeth then your answer might just lie in dental veneers.
These thin tooth-colored shells are custom-made to cover the front surface of your teeth. They are made from porcelain, which not only offers a realistic appearance that mimics that of real teeth but is also durable and stain-resistant. Unlike crowns, which require an extensive amount of enamel to be filed down from your tooth before you can get crowns, veneers don’t require that same invasive tooth preparation. A significantly smaller amount of enamel must be removed and it’s a completely painless process.
Impressions will also need to be taken of the teeth you wish to treat. You can decide to get veneers for all of your teeth or just those with imperfections. A lab will use these impressions to create your very own dental veneers. Once your veneers are ready to be placed, you will come back into our Moorpark, CA dental office and we will check to make sure that you are happy with the look of your new restorations. Once we have your approval we will apply a bonding resin between the tooth and the veneer and then harden the resin with a special curing light.
You won’t believe the magic of dental veneers until you see for yourself. To find out if you are right for treatment by calling Moorpark Cosmetic & General Dentistry to schedule your initial consultation.
