Newport Beach Cosmetic Dentist Answers Veneers FAQ

Newport Beach Dentist Reviews Veneers

There are often a few questions often asked about Veneers:

What dental problems do Veneers fix?
What are the benefits of Veneers?
What is the lasting length of time for Veneers?

In this blog post we will address these questions.

Veneers procedures are used to fix discoloration of the teeth as well as teeth that have worn down throughout the years. If a patient has a chipped or broken tooth they might want to consider veneers. Typically gaps between teeth and improperly aligned teeth are also cause for Veneers.

Veneers are great because they have the appearance of natural teeth. Gums handle the porcelain very well and they are unaffected by stains. Veneers do not really require major shaping that crowns do and they will offer a strong and nice looking solution.

Typically veneers will remain strong for close to 10 years. After this time they may need to be replaced.

Newport Beach Dentist Answers Pediatric Dentistry Questions

Newport Beach cosmetic dental practice reviews children's dental care.

What is the ideal age for children visit a dentist?

We recommend that children have their first dental examination as soon as their first tooth arrives and definitely before the conclusion of their first birthday.

How many check-ups should my child have per year?

We recommend your child to visit a dentist every 6 months – in order to foresee any future problems with cavities and alignment. Furthermore, each child might have different needs based on the shape and growth of the teeth.

If my child has aches and pain with their teeth, what should I do?

The first step is to call your dentist immediately and describe what is occurring. Furthermore you may clean the aching area with warm salt water and then apply a cold compress on the face if there is swelling. Some doctors may recommend children’s acetaminophen to lower the pain.

Same-Day Crowns Dentistry Newport Beach

Benefits of Same-Day Dental procedures utilize up-to date technology to provide dental patients with the premium care and results. Traditional dental procedures like crowns/bridges will take two appointments. However, the E4D system allows the dentist to perform the procedure in one appointment.

Because traditional dental procedures take 2 visits and multiple weeks for composites to be developed, the temporary tooth can potentially shift in its position, increase in sensitivity, and become vulnerable to breaking. Therefore, same-day dentistry procedures for:

Inlays/Onlays

Ceramic Crowns

Veneers

Are ultimately are healthier than the traditional methods.
