Porcelain Veneers in Cupertino, CA
The beautiful, life-like solution to your restoration or cosmetic desires, these thin layers of porcelain are shaped and attached to the front of your teeth to achieve a natural look.
The best candidate for porcelain veneers has consistent and good color natural teeth. If the surrounding teeth are poor in color, then multiple porcelain veneers may be required to get the best cosmetic result. The area where the tooth was chipped or broken is smoothed. The remaining front surface of the tooth is reduced slightly to accommodate the veneer. When the porcelain veneer is placed, it replaces the missing chipping or broken area of the tooth. It has the same color and appearance of a natural tooth, even!
Alternatives to porcelain veneers include porcelain crowns and cosmetic dental bonding. Bonding can only be effectively applied to natural teeth. Doctor can bond almost any tooth that has at least 2/3 of remaining healthy tooth. Bonding material is connected to the tooth wherever it’s chipped or broken. The tooth is then cleaned and treated with an adhesive to which the bonding material attaches to the tooth. The bonding material replaces the missing part of the tooth and is tooth-colored in appearance.
