Reasons For Veneers

There are a number of reasons as to why your dentist could suggest Walnut Creek veneers for you, including:

  • Worn tooth enamel – It is no secret that tooth enamel, or the substance that serves as a protective layer over your teeth, can weardown, leading to tooth discoloration. This process is also spurred by the consumption of foods that are not considered ideal for your teeth, including red wine, coffee, or soda.
  • Uneven teeth – Uneven teeth can be the result of frequent teeth grinding or simply having been born with uneven or spaced out teeth.
  • Gradual damage – Many cases of tooth damage happen over time, with eventual cracking taking place. As your teeth age, they might be more prone to these types of damage.

Of course, Drs. Fitzgerald, Verano, or Pampalone may also suggest veneers if any combination of these conditions are present, as they often times are. 

The Process 

Put simply, veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are placed over the existing surfaces of your teeth. Due to the fact that they are customized to look natural in your mouth, every patient will have veneers that are made specifically for them using CEREC technology. Using advanced technology, your dentists in Walnut Creek can craft veneers for you in the office. 

The veneers installation process is as follows: 

  1. Trimming the tooth – your tooth will be prepped for the procedure and trimmed so that the addition does not make your tooth thickness change drastically. 
  2. Crafting the veneer – your veneers will be customized according to shape, size and color of the tooth surface. 
  3. Bonding the veneer – your Walnut Creek cosmetic dentist will securely bond the veneer to your tooth’s surface.
  4. Finishing touches – finally, Dr. Fitzgerald, Verano or Pampalone will clean any excess cement and polish the final product. You will want to test out the veneer at this time, making sure you have a fully functioning bite.
