Some patients believe that getting a gorgeous Hollywood smile is simply not within their reach. But the truth is that veneers have become a veneersvery common treatment in the everyday world that helps patients achieve that goal. After visiting your dentist at Digiorno Dental Fitness in Folsom and Sacramento, CA, for a checkup you might learn that you are an ideal candidate for veneers.

Veneers Will Make You Smile
Unfortunately, many people choose to spend many years hiding their teeth because of dental imperfections including chips, cracks, stains, and smile gaps. It's hard to smile or laugh with confidence around others if you’re constantly worrying about how your teeth look. When you have veneers, there's no need for concern because each tooth is covered with a smooth porcelain covering that's beautifully contoured and colored. With veneers, you'll feel more comfortable smiling around friends and strangers. 

Deciding if You're a Good Candidate
If your teeth are in overall good condition, meaning that your mouth is free from dental and gum disease, it's likely that you'll be a candidate for veneers. You wouldn't want to bond a dental device to a tooth that is unhealthy and in need of treatment. Your Folsom and Sacramento, CA, dentist will perform a thorough dental examination, including X-rays to ensure that each tooth is healthy enough to support a veneer.

Veneers Don't Take Long to Install
Compared to other treatments aimed at bettering the appearance of your teeth, veneers don't take very long to install. The average treatment time is about a few weeks. When you consider that braces can take many months or years, veneers are the best choice if you want your new smile in time for an upcoming event.

You should feel as if you have your best smile possible while navigating your social life and professional career.

Find out how porcelain veneers can completely transform your smile.veneers

While it might seem as if the perfect smile is so far out of reach, you may actually be surprised to hear otherwise. Our Sacramento and Folsom, CA, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Julianne Digiorno, prides herself on crafting beautiful smiles, no matter what smile you were born with. While Digiorno Dental Fitness offers a full range of dental services, find out how dental veneers could help improve your smile.

What can dental veneers do for your smile?

These super thin tooth-colored layers of porcelain are each custom-made to cover the front surface of a tooth to improve color, shape or length. You may choose to get a single dental veneer or you may want to give your smile a complete makeover with veneers. The sky is the limit!

Dental veneers can be a great way to hide stains and discolorations that teeth whitening won’t be able to remove. Veneers can also cover chips and cracks, gaps between teeth, minor crowding and crookedness, as well as misshapen or uneven teeth. If your teeth have been worn down from teeth grinding or jaw clenching in the past, then dental veneers can also help make your teeth appear longer.

What should you know about getting dental veneers in Sacramento and Folsom, CA?

What makes dental veneers such an appealing option for most people looking to enhance the shape or appearance of their teeth is that they don’t require a lot of fuss or tooth preparation beforehand. Most people love the idea of getting a smile makeover but hate all the time it can take. Getting veneers is fairly simple. Here are the steps you can expect from the treatment process:

Consultation: This is where we make sure that your smile and goals align with what veneers can offer. We will also check to make sure your smile is healthy enough for veneers.

Tooth Prep: While this isn’t invasive or painful, it is necessary if you want to get traditional veneers. If you are getting no-prep veneers, then this process will most likely not be necessary. During tooth preparation, we will remove a very minute amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This allows extra room for your new veneers.

Impressions: We will also need to take impressions of your teeth. These impressions will give the lab the measurements they need to craft your veneers.

Placement: It’s pretty easy to place your porcelain veneers. We will bond the veneers in place, make sure you are completely happy with the final product and then harden the bonding resin so your veneers are now your beautiful new smile.
