Do you have a tooth or two that’s a little out of place or crooked? Have you thought about turning to traditional braces or maybe Invisalign® to perfect your smile? That’s generally the first option someone will consider to fix crooked teeth. However, another cosmetic solution could work for you to straighten your smile, and that’s porcelain veneers in Carlsbad.

Why Do Porcelain Veneers Work?

Because of the way your Carlsbad porcelain veneers are fabricated, they do have the ability to straighten your smile in the same way that orthodontics such as Invisalign® might work too. Your dental veneers will be carefully crafted to match your natural teeth but also specially customized to smooth and straighten your smile for the results you’re looking for. We generally rely on or recommend porcelain veneers to mask minor misalignments and imperfections.

How Does the Treatment Process Work?

When you come to our Carlsbad dental office for a porcelain veneer consultation, Dr. Drew Addy and team can begin the process by evaluating your teeth and determining their positioning. Once you and Dr. Addy have determined that porcelain veneers are the correct cosmetic procedure for you, first, he will prepare your tooth by removing a thin layer of enamel. This ensures that your veneer will adhere properly. Then, he will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are sent to a dental lab, where your veneers will be created. Once we receive the veneer from the lab, you will come in for another visit, during which Dr. Addy may do a bit more tooth preparation and make sure that the veneer is in the right shape and color. Finally, he will use a unique adhesive to cement the veneer in place, use a special light to cure it, and send you on your way with the smile you have always wanted.

No matter what your Carlsbad cosmetic dentistry needs may be, know that Dr. Addy is equipped with sophisticated tools and technology to accurately diagnose your needs and help you achieve your oral health goals, including with transformative porcelain veneers. No matter your needs, we can tailor a treatment plan that revolves around your schedule and budget. We invite you to call us or message us today and schedule a consultation and conversation.
