Your Brentwood dentist can makeover your whole smile with beautiful porcelain dental veneers
A smile makeover may sound like a form of cosmetic dental treatment that is very involved. In fact, patients of Dr. Alkhoury and Brentwood
Family Dental may find that their smile can be beautifully transformed with a singular treatment such as porcelain dental veneers
. Whether you feel that your smile is in need of extensive restructuring for better oral function and an attractive aesthetic or you have a minor problem you wish to correct, Dr. Alkhoury's background and experience pave the way for a gorgeous outcome.
Porcelain veneers are ideal for the smile makeover for a number of reasons. Veneers are very thin sheets of material, in this case porcelain, that are shaped, sized, and colored to perfection in a dental laboratory. We use impressions and images of the patient's teeth as a guide in the design process. This type of treatment is quick, convenient, and affordable, offering patients the opportunity to cover problems such as gaps, chips, cracks, discoloration, and more.
The smile transformation process of porcelain veneer treatment is completed in a few weeks, beginning with the initial consultation for cosmetic care. One of the most important steps in this treatment is a thorough dental examination which will detect any existing concerns such as cavities. The last thing we want is to place a sheet of porcelain over an unhealthy tooth. Doing so would severely impact oral health and would also shorten the lifespan of the veneer itself. When the health of teeth and gums is good, we can move forward with the preparation of the tooth or teeth, impressions, imaging, and sending specifications to the dental lab.
In the lab, a master ceramist takes our specifications and the model of teeth and creates beautiful veneers of the exact shape, size, and color requested. Back in our office, the veneers are set onto teeth and assessed for the correct details before we bond them into place.
Individuals in the Brentwood or Discovery Bay area have options to improve the look of their smile. To learn more about porcelain veneers, schedule your consultation with Dr. Alkhoury at Brentwood Family Dental.
