Problems with chronic dental stains and other physical imperfections with the teeth in the front of your mouth can be frustrating and hamper your self-confidence. While a dental bleaching treatment can remove dental stains, it cannot address physical imperfections with your teeth. If the original cause of the dental stains isn’t addressed, the dental stains can return.
In a case like this, Dr. Dawn A. Wu might recommend enhancing your smile’s appearance with dental veneers. These thin porcelain shells can be designed to fit the faces of your teeth to provide you with a gleaming white that is easy to maintain.
This type of cosmetic restoration typically requires two separate appointments. Dr. Dawn A. Wu will create a detailed impression will then be made of each tooth in your smile. If a specific tooth has been compromised by a new cavity or a previous dental filling, he might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown.
The impression and any other related information will be sent to a professional dental lab to guide dental technicians in creating your dental veneers and any necessary dental crowns. When your dental work is ready, you’ll need to return to Dr. Dawn A. Wu’s office for a second appointment. The corresponding dental work will then be cemented in place with a strong dental adhesive.
