San Diego Veneers
If you are seeking to improve the appearance of your teeth, one dental treatment that you should consider are veneers. Dr. Chaikin successfully uses veneers to help patients with:
- Chipped teeth
- Severely stained teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
- Correct the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth
- Increase length appearance of short teeth
At Convoy Dental Arts, we recognize the value of a beautiful smile. However, we never compromise beauty for the long-term health of your teeth. Dr. Chaikin finds that both are attainable when the right materials, methods, and technologies are combined. It’s all about balance.
Convoy Dental Arts Veneers
There are stark differences between veneers that look natural and those that do not. While a bright white smile with perfect symmetry may seem attractive at first glance, many find that such a smile has an incredibly fake look. Hence, modern cosmetic dental procedures trend toward a more natural, healthy appearance. To accomplish this, Convoy Dental Arts only works with high-quality porcelain veneers.
Why Veneer Quality Matters
The two main types of veneers are feldspathic and pressed ceramic. We opt to use pressed ceramic in most situations due to its longevity and appearance. Pressed ceramic offers the following benefits:
- It is twice as strong as feldspathic, thus less susceptible to fractures and cracks
- It has double the lifespan
- It is a more versatile solution for treatments and restorations
- Because of its less abrasive nature, there is less chance of it damaging adjacent natural teeth
What Is Involved In Getting Veneers?
Typically, the process of acquiring veneers takes a couple of visits. The first visit prepares the teeth for the veneers and the second visit is for the placement of the veneers. Before any treatment, Dr. Chaikin will give you a thorough consultation to verify that veneers are a suitable option.
