Everyone wants to have a beautiful, healthy smile, but many people struggle with cosmetic imperfections in their teeth. Things like chips, cracks, crooked or misshapen teeth can cause individuals to feel self-conscious and keep them from flashing a smile, even in the happiest of occasions. As a Premier Cosmetic Dentist in Ventura, Dr. Jivraj offers many cosmetic dental procedures to help patients achieve their ideal smile. One of the most comprehensive and rewarding treatments is the application of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin ceramic “shells” that are appended to the front of a tooth to restore the tooth’s structure and improve a patient’s overall appearance.
Take a look at some of the many Benefits of Porcelain Veneers below.
Porcelain Veneers Improve the Appearance of the Smile
Porcelain veneers are among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because they can drastically improve the appearance of the smile. Whether a patient is concerned with discoloration, cracks in the tooth or misalignment, veneers offer an excellent fix. In addition, veneers can be placed on multiple teeth to completely transform the smile.
Porcelain Veneers are Customized
Dr. Saj Jivraj works with patients to understand their exact needs and their desired outcome, prior to placing porcelain veneers. When it comes to veneers, no two patients receive the exact same set. Rather, Dr. Jivraj uses advanced CAD-CAM technology to get a detailed picture of your smile, to create custom molds and ultimately craft veneers that are a perfect fit for you. Veneers also come in a range of shades, so you’ll never have to worry about a veneer looking out of place.
Porcelain Veneers Improve Oral Health
In addition to their aesthetic benefits, porcelain veneers can also help improve a patient’s oral health. Veneers restore the structure of the natural tooth, making it less susceptible to infection or further deterioration. In addition, this can help prevent shifting of surrounding teeth, gum disease, and more.
Porcelain Veneers are Easy to Care For
Although porcelain veneers aren’t the same as your natural teeth, your oral hygiene habits won’t have to change once you get veneers. That is, if you’ve been practicing positive oral hygiene previously. It’s important to brush daily, floss and visit Dr. Jivraj’s office every 6 months for dental check-ups. Should a veneer, need repair, Dr. Jivraj can reshape or re-bond the veneer, as needed.
Porcelain Veneers are Long Lasting
Dr. Jivraj uses only the highest quality materials for veneers, and they can last upwards of 15 years when cared for properly.
