Many people struggling with a stained smile consult with Dr. Wayne W. Hsieh to explore their options for improving their smile. One of the most effective cosmetic dental solutions for people who chronically struggle with stained teeth is to install dental veneers.
These are essentially porcelain shells that are custom designed in a dental lab to fit over the faces of each tooth in your smile. The special porcelain material will not be as receptive to stains as your natural tooth enamel. Since microscopic staining particles can’t adhere to and penetrate your teeth, it will give you a white smile that is easy to maintain year after year.
The process starts with Dr. Wayne W. Hsieh conducting a thorough examination of each tooth in your smile. It’s important to make sure you have sufficient enamel to secure a veneer. If a tooth has been compromised by a cavity or thin tooth enamel, he might recommend a porcelain dental crown.
Dr. Wayne W. Hsieh will then remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. Then, he will create a detailed impression of each tooth destined for a veneer. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while the technicians work to produce your final veneers.
Dr. Wayne W. Hsieh will call you back in for a second appointment when the final veneers are ready. During this phase of restoration, he will cement the porcelain shell in place.
