Technical expertise, artistry add up to flawless (not fake-looking!) porcelain veneers in Redlands, CA

You do not have to go under the knife or undergo injections to add youthful vitality to your appearance. Porcelain veneers in Redlands, CA, at the Brookside Smiles, office dramatically improve the appearance of a coveted feature: a beautiful, ageless smile!

Versatile veneers

Veneers are thin layers of porcelain. Precisely color-matched and designed to your unique specifications, veneers disguise a wide range of imperfections. For instance, these layers of porcelain may be bonded or “fixed” to the prepared, natural tooth structure to close gaps between your teeth. Dental ceramics such as porcelain are also coveted for their lifelike brilliance. When they are well-crafted by professionals like Dr. Jennifer Nation, porcelain veneers closely mimic the natural translucency and light-reflecting properties present in natural enamel.

As beautiful as porcelain is when it blends in with the rest of your smile when placed by Dr. Nation with quality techniques and bonding products, veneers are also designed to last. They are strong and can withstand the forces placed on them from chewing food and other functions. It is important to care for them well and refrain from any habits that might damage the veneer, such as teeth-grinding and chewing hard objects like ice. As appropriate, we can discuss mouthguards customized to protect veneers and other restorations from damage caused by bruxing (teeth grinding).

To further strengthen the bond between the natural tooth structure and the veneer, it is necessary to remove a small amount of enamel. This step also allows the veneer to look and feel most natural. So, it does not stick out too much. Once bonded securely to the tooth structure, veneers may also cover up:

  • Chips
  • Minor cracks
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Signs of wear and tear
  • “Short” teeth or other sizing issues
  • Discoloration that is resistant to professional teeth whitening
