Your smile is one of your greatest assets — restore its natural beauty with porcelain veneers from Dr. A. Scott Grivas III. This tooth restoration option can fix cosmetic dentistry problems like tooth misalignment or discoloration in as little as two appointments at our Sacramento office.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, customized white shells that fit over your natural teeth to enhance their length, shape, or color. Veneers are designed to seamlessly blend into your smile, so you can completely rejuvenate your appearance in just two short appointments.
Along with brightening your smile, veneers are often used to treat teeth that are:
- Broken or chipped
- Misaligned or uneven
- Discolored, stained, or yellow
- Too small or large
- Worn-down or decayed
The Veneers Process
Creating your stunning porcelain veneers begins with a consultation with Dr. Grivas. During this appointment, he’ll examine your mouth and take impressions of your teeth. We’ll then send your impressions to a dental laboratory, where specialists create your custom porcelain veneers.
After treating any underlying dental problems and receiving your veneers, we’ll schedule an appointment at our Sacramento office to place your stunning restorations. Before we place your veneers, we’ll make any necessary adjustments to ensure they look perfect and fit comfortably.
Once you’ve approved the size and shape, Dr. Grivas will safely remove a small portion of your enamel to create room for your porcelain veneers. Our dental experts will then adhere your veneers to the outside of your teeth with a special bonding solution. After a waiting period to allow your veneers to settle, you’ll leave our office with the smile of your dreams.
How Do I Care For My Veneers?
Although porcelain veneers aren’t a permanent solution for cosmetic problems, they can last up to 15 years with proper oral hygiene. Luckily, caring for your dental veneers is as easy as brushing and flossing twice daily. We also recommend that you avoid any foods and products that could stain or damage your teeth, such as:
- Whitening toothpaste and mouthwash
- Baking soda toothpaste
The best way to extend the lifespan of your porcelain veneers is to visit Dr. Grivas every six months. During these checkups, our experienced dental team will professionally clean your teeth and make adjustments, if necessary. We’ll also give you advice on how to maintain your oral health.
