Giving You a BEAUTIFUL Smile
When you look at your smile, do you wonder if it could be just a little (or a lot) more attractive? We want you to know about an affordable dental procedure that can fix crooked, discolored, uneven, and unsightly teeth. The solution is porcelain veneers! Dr. Martin specializes in placing porcelain veneers over your existing teeth to instantly correct multiple problems at once. If you are already thinking about getting porcelain veneers or have any questions about porcelain veneers working in your specific situation, please call us at 707-255-6300 or request an appointment through our website. We will be happy to share everything we know and see if porcelain veneers can give you the smile you have been searching for.
Placing Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are a thin, semi-transparent tooth shaped "shell" that are custom made of porcelain. They are permanently bonded to your natural teeth which are located in your "smile zone" to enhance their shape, color, length or size. Veneers can fix gaps between teeth and/or improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshaped or misaligned.
- The teeth are cleaned and any old surface restorations are removed.
- An impression is taken of the prepped tooth and sent to a lab where the veneer is fabricated.
- The veneer is applied with bonding resin and a curing light.
- After the veneer is set, it is shaped and polished to look like a natural tooth.
Veneers vs. Braces to Straighten Teeth
With some porcelain veneers, it may be possible to give you straighter teeth in just a matter of days instead of years like it would take wearing traditional braces. With this procedure you virtually eliminate the overall treatment time as well as the potential of having uncomfortable brackets, unsightly metal wire and the regular adjustment appointments typically associated with braces. Robert R Martin, DDS specializes in this ground-breaking technique and will be happy to help you create a perfect smile for you. Call our office at 707-255-6300 and ask us about how using porcelain veneers can help you.
What About the Cost of Porcelain Veneers?
Cosmetic dental procedures are often thought of as being a dental service that is reserved for Hollywood. Today, this is no longer the case! Porcelain veneers are made very affordable if properly planned and executed. Because each dental case requiring porcelain veneers is unique, pricing them out requires a quick visit to our dental office. Robert R Martin, DDS will work closely with you to ensure your procedure is affordable.
How CEREC Works
We use a highly-sensitive precision wand to digitally scan the section of your mouth where a dental restoration will be placed. As the wand scans the area, it builds a virtual model of your mouth on a screen right in front of your eyes. You and your doctor can fine-tune the area until the virtual model represents your mouth exactly.
Once the digital model of the dental restoration area have been finished, Robert R Martin, DDS will digitally design a restoration right there on the screen. It will be designed to be fully functional and fit exactly in the area where it needs to be place.
From there, this digital restoration will be sent to a milling machine where a color-matched block of porcelain will be precisely milled into the final restoration. This restoration is NOT a temporary, but rather the same restoration we expect to receive from a dental lab.
The final restoration is test-fitted to the area and any final adjustments are made before securely bonding the restoration to the tooth. You will walk out of our office wearing the final restoration in a single dental visit.
