Benefits of Porcelain Veneers in Newport Beach
Stain ResistantPorcelain veneers do not change color over time. The material is stain-resistant, unlike the natural teeth, which can be discolored with food, drinks, and tobacco. However, this also means that they are not affected by procedures such as teeth whitening. When patients have veneers in place while considering whitening, Dr. Andrew Spath, DDS may recommend replacing them.
Versatile / Long LastingWhile veneers are long lasting and apply to many different applications, they typically do not last a lifetime. However, if the veneers are done properly in the enamel which is the outer layer of tooth they have a success rate of 90% at twenty years for any fix. With new materials like Emax (lithium disilicate) veneers are extremely strong and durable, which helps aid in their lifespan.
Advantages of Dental Veneers at Our Newport Beach Dental Office
The Right Fit
Dental Veneers must be bonded to the enamel. We find that veneers fall off and fail when dentist are too aggressive with the removal of tooth structure prior to veneer placement. Studies show that at 20 years we have a 95% success rate of veneers when placed in enamel(the outer most layer of tooth). If the enamel is removed the veneers tend to fall off. Staying in enamel is important to conserve tooth structure and to improve results
Jaw / Bite Problems
Occlusion….Occlusion is the bite. Dr. Spath has studied under some of the best dentists in the world in the field of occlusion. Having a complete knowledge of the way the chewing system works sounds simple however it is extremely complex and the biggest risk of failure.
A talented ceramist/lab technician is is vital to achieving the best results possible. Teeth are not the same color and translucency throughout and neither should be veneers. In order to achieve a natural appearance the time, skill and judgement of the ceramist must be exceptional. We use the best guys in the business!
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front surface of teeth. They are typically made of porcelain or composite resin and are designed to improve the appearance of teeth by enhancing their shape, color, and alignment.
The lifespan of veneers can vary depending on factors such as oral hygiene practices, oral habits, and the materials used. On average, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 15 years, while composite resin veneers may have a shorter lifespan of around 5 to 7 years. Regular dental check-ups and proper oral care can help prolong the longevity of veneers.
The process typically involves several steps. It begins with a consultation where the dentist assesses your teeth and discusses your desired outcome. Then, a small amount of enamel is typically removed from the front surface of the teeth to create space for the veneers. Impressions of the teeth are taken, and temporary veneers may be placed. In the next visit, the custom-made veneers are bonded to the teeth using dental cement.
The cost of veneers can vary depending on several factors, including the type of material used, the number of veneers needed, the complexity of the case, the location of the dental practice, and the expertise of the dentist.
In general, dental insurance plans typically consider veneers to be a cosmetic procedure and do not provide coverage for them. Cosmetic procedures are usually elective and primarily performed to improve the appearance of teeth rather than to address a functional or health concern.
