If you’re not happy with the way your teeth look, then why not start the year off right by considering porcelain veneers in La Quinta, CA? Charming Smiles of La Quinta offers some of the best porcelain veneers in the area. Here’s everything you need to know about this popular dental procedure.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth in a number of ways, including making them look whiter, straighter, and more evenly shaped. Porcelain veneers are also stain-resistant and durable, so they will maintain their like-new appearance for years to come with proper care.

Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

There are many reasons to choose porcelain veneers, but here are just a few:

  • Porcelain veneers can give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
  • Porcelain veneers are strong and durable, so they will last for years with proper care.
  • Porcelain veneers resist staining and discoloration better than natural tooth enamel.
  • Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a number of cosmetic dental concerns, including chips, cracks, gaps, and misshapen teeth.

The Veneer Process

The process of getting porcelain veneers usually takes two visits to our office. During your first visit, we’ll take impressions of your teeth so that custom-made veneers can be made for you. We’ll also discuss the desired look you want to achieve with your veneers so that we can create a treatment plan that meets your needs.

Once your custom veneers arrive at our office (usually within 2-3 weeks), you’ll come back for a second appointment. During this appointment, we’ll clean your teeth and roughen up their surfaces so that the bonding material will adhere better. We’ll then bond the veneers to your teeth using special dental cement. A light beam will be used to harden the cement and bond the veneer to your tooth.

You’ll then be given instructions on how to care for your new veneers so that they last for many years to come. It’s important to avoid biting into hard foods and chewing on ice or other hard objects; doing so could damage or break your veneers. It’s also important to brush and floss regularly and visit our office for routine checkups and cleanings so that we can ensure your veneers are in good condition.
