Porcelain dental veneers transform Walnut Creek smiles
Your smile is an important part of how others perceive you. If you find yourself hiding your teeth, are embarrassed about their appearance, or feel your smile is not sending the right message, there has never been a better time to talk to Dr. Troy Schmedding about cosmetic dentistry options such as porcelain dental veneers. Dr. Schmedding transforms smiles in the Walnut Creek, CA area with a customized approach that puts your needs and treatment preferences first.
Dental veneers: a versatile cosmetic dental treatment
Dental veneers are ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that are custom-crafted to place over your teeth, where they can hide a wide variety of imperfections while retaining the features of your smile that make it uniquely yours. Some of the most common issues that porcelain veneers can treat include:
- Misshapen teeth
- Chips or breaks
- Pitted tooth enamel
- Permanent stains or discoloration
- Oddly sized teeth
- Teeth that are worn down or asymmetrical
- Mild misalignment
- Small gaps between teeth
- Old restorations that are still functional, but no longer look aesthetically pleasing
What to expect
Getting veneers placed typically takes two visits. In your first visit, Dr. Schmedding will remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of the teeth that will be treated so that your veneers fit in seamlessly within your smile without being too bulky, and then we take dental impressions so your veneers can be custom-fabricated to our precise specifications. Once they are ready, you come back in and we will try them on your teeth and make any minor adjustments needed. After you and Dr. Schmedding both agree that your new veneers both look and fit perfectly, he will cement them onto your teeth. You can walk out of the office with a completely transformed smile – and better yet, your terrific results can last for many years with good home care.
