While our teeth in America are in good shape compared to most of the world, it’s still a fact that no one has perfect teeth.
Well, maybe some in Hollywood do, but they cheated just a bit. They’ve had porcelain veneers placed onto the front surfaces of all of their visible teeth.
In your smile, you may have a couple teeth that are irregularly shaped. Some may be stained from a reaction to tetracycline when you were a kid. There may be a chip on a tooth. You could have a gap between two teeth. But porcelain veneers can cover up all of those flaws, without the months of orthodontic treatment and such that would otherwise be required. Dr. Fong places porcelain veneers at his Santa Ana practice.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells placed over the front of your natural teeth to alter the tooth position, shape, size, and color. Veneers provide an aesthetic solution to various tooth imperfections. Dr. Fong uses only porcelain for his veneers because its appearance closely resembles that of natural tooth enamel.
What aesthetic problems does Dr. Fong use veneers to address?
Veneers are the ultimate restoration for:
- Revitalizing the surface of a tooth
- Concealing chips
- Covering badly stained, discolored teeth
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Masking alignment problems
- Covering cracks or wear
- Providing an alternative to orthodontic work
They’re just a cover-up, though
It’s important to remember that porcelain veneers placed by Dr. Fong are only cosmetic improvements to your smile. Veneers don’t correct underlying problems, such as decay, gum disease, or deeply damaged teeth. Any serious problems with a tooth or teeth need to be addressed and corrected prior to the possibility of getting porcelain veneers.
