Rejuvenate your smile with porcelain veneers from Ricky Singh, DMD. At his Berkeley, CA dental practice, Dr. Singh gives patients fresh, beautiful smiles with veneers. He offers both standard porcelain veneers and Lumineers® brand low-prep porcelain veneers. Both options are delivered with skill and expertise, and produce beautiful results.
Veneers are advantageous in that they provide efficient, dramatic enhancements to the smile. They can remedy a myriad of cosmetic flaws, including:
- Stubborn tooth staining caused by trauma, antibiotics, or excessive fluoride.
- Chipped teeth from accidents.
- Worn down teeth, which can appear smaller in size after years of use.
- Mild crookedness, also known as a class one malocclusion
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
There are many advantages to choosing porcelain veneers.
Veneers can fix a variety of cosmetic flaws. Whereas other methods require separate procedures and time-consuming return appointments, veneers can correct multiple flaws at once.
Porcelain veneers require minimal upkeep and maintenance. They require the same care as regular teeth, and can last up to ten years. Porcelain is a durable material, used in the restoration of teeth for centuries and perfected by dentists to mimic natural teeth.
Lumineers Low-Prep Veneers
At Berkeley Dentistry, we offer the Lumineers brand of minimally invasive veneers. These extremely thin porcelain veneers require very little preparation. They are thinner than standard veneers, and are bonded one by one to ensure balanced contact between upper and lower teeth.
The Veneers Procedure
First, Dr. Singh will remove some of the natural enamel layer to accommodate for the miniscule thickness of the veneer. Then, he applies a dental cement that will permanently secure the veneer to the tooth once cured. Before applying the curing light, Dr. Singh double checks to make sure the bite is aligned correctly, and that there is enough space to floss between each tooth.
After the veneers are placed, he welcomes patients for regular wellness check-ups to ensure their veneers are functioning properly. We ensure your oral structure is healthy enough to support veneers before placing them, and afterwards maintain that health with deep cleanings and preventive care.
