Your Hercules, CA Porcelain Veneers Provider
If your overall oral health is good, but you are not happy with certain aspects of your smile, Dr. Ashley Ho offers porcelain veneers and Lumineers® in Hercules. While whitening can brighten your smile and works very well on extrinsically stained teeth, those with permanent discoloration due to antibiotic use, illness, or genetics need another solution.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are shade matched to adjacent teeth and affixed to one or more teeth that need treatment. In addition to permanent staining, veneers can address a number of other dental concerns:
- Chipped Teeth
- Small Gaps between Teeth
- Minor Cracks
- Mild Crowding
While significantly damaged teeth require a crown to restore health and function, veneers can completely transform smiles that have superficial imperfections such as those listed above.
Many of Dr. Ho’s patients decide to take this step upon graduating from college and entering the work-force, or when they have an important event coming up.
Receiving Veneers in Hercules
Dr. Ho is meticulous when it comes to making improvements to her patients’ smiles. On your first visit, your dental impressions will be obtained and sent to our trusted lab. When your veneers are ready, you will return to have them applied to the fronts of your teeth.
Before they are attached, Dr. Ho will prepare the teeth to ensure a permanent bond. If you prefer not to have your teeth altered to receive veneers, we also offer Lumineers in Hercules. These veneers need little to no preparation, and depending on your smile may be an option.
Adding Teeth Whitening to the Veneer Process
If you also want a brighter smile and have developed dental discoloration over time, Dr. Ho can whiten the adjacent teeth prior to shade-matching your veneers for a uniformly more beautiful smile.
Why Consider Veneers?
If you are self-conscious about your smile and have to restrain yourself from smiling or laughing, this prevents you from expressing yourself authentically. The way you approach the world and the way it responds to you has much to do with body language, and the confidence to smile is your ambassador.
A set of veneers can serve you well as an investment in your smile and is a long-lasting, non-invasive solution that can convert a smile from one that is less than ideal to one that is completely stunning.
Whatever your reason is for wanting to improve your smile with veneers, our Hercules dentist can have you smiling confidently within two visits to our office.
