A Simple Way to Transform Imperfect Teeth into Your Perfect Smile

When you look at your smile, do you seen any teeth that are discolored, cracked, chipped or imperfect in any way? If these teeth are making you embarrassed to show off your full smile, it’s time for a change. At Irvine Spectrum Dental, we can correct imperfect teeth in a simple, effective and natural-looking way with dental veneers.

A dental veneer is a shell-like restoration that is made to attach to the front surface of a tooth. Each veneer is typically made of porcelain or a tooth-colored resin to produce a natural-looking result that covers smile imperfections and improves your smile. Porcelain veneers are extremely durable and give off the color and appearance of natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is also a stain-resistant material, so your veneers will remain beautiful for years to come. Resin veneers can also be matched to your natural tooth color and provide a high-quality result that blends in with your smile.

We will then shave down the outermost layer of the teeth that are to be treated. This step roughs up the tooth’s surface to which the veneer can better adhere, and it prevents the veneer from sticking out past your natural tooth line once it is applied.

Next, Dr. Anthony Yu will take an impression of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental lab with the color and size specifications to create your customized veneers. Once your veneers are created, you will return to our office to have them permanently cemented to the surface of your teeth. In two short visits, your smile can be transformed into the smile you want!
