At TruDentistry of Tigard, we remain committed to offering our patients every opportunity to achieve a beautiful smile. Dental veneers are offered in our office and are very effective in covering up stubborn stains that never seem to be removed with routine cleanings and other tooth flaws as well.
Veneers are thin strips of porcelain and are a professional dental treatment that applies the material to the surface of the tooth. Dr. Nguyen and Dr. Weinberg match the color of the porcelain to match other teeth. If the veneers are not a good match, they will stick out as different and affect the quality of the patient’s smile.
Veneers are often mistaken for bonding, but they are very different. In bonding we use a soft plastic resin that is then shaped to the tooth. The veneer process is thin strips made from ceramic-based material, porcelain.
The other difference is in the life of the treatment. Bonding will last a few years while the veneer porcelain can have a lifespan of a decade or more. Porcelain is much stronger than the resin used for bonding.
The color of the porcelain can come much closer to the natural color of the teeth providing a more natural smile.
With dental veneers, you can cover misshapen or discolored teeth with this extremely thin porcelain. These translucent shells of ceramic look just like your own teeth, only better.
There are a lot of factors that contribute to the discoloration of teeth that include certain food and drinks, smoking and aging. With veneers, that can all be covered up. They can also cover up chips and gaps.
With wear and tear, teeth can often get shorter. The hand sculptured porcelain veneers can restore the length of your teeth as well.
Veneers can be completed in just a few visits. When veneers are professionally applied, they can restore the brightness and youthfulness of your smile.
Veneers can totally improve your smile and give you more confidence. If you think veneers could help you, be sure to ask us about them on your next visit.
