Hello and welcome back to our oral health blog.

The topic for today is teeth. Well, that was obvious, right? But more specifically we want to talk about making your teeth look great again.

It’s a fact of life that our teeth will change as we get older, and they will lose their luster as the result of decay or trauma. But since your smile is the first thing that other will notice about you, this can be embarrassing. Especially during the summer months when there are graduations, weddings, family reunions and other special occasions on the calendar. You won’t want to show up at any of these events with a shabby smile.

We understand your frustration about the condition of your teeth. But there is some good news for you: our Oregon City dental team is here to give you the smile you have always wanted and to restore function and beauty to your mouth. We can actually make it happen fast without any pain or discomfort.

How does that sound?

For hiding unseemly cracks, chips, discoloration, and other dental damage, we provide you with a set of veneers. Read the rest of today’s post to hear more about this great cosmetic treatment, and then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your dental veneer consultation in Oregon City.

Hide Your Flaws With Veneers

Our Oregon office provides porcelain veneers that are durable, lifelike, and match the natural color of your teeth. You are probably thinking, “Great! But what are they?”

Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells made of porcelain that are bonded directly to your tooth. In a way they are like the false fingernails of the dental world.

Our veneers can hide distracting discoloration, chips, and cracks. We can even use veneers to close the gap between teeth, alter the shape of the tooth, or restore worn enamel. Pretty cool, right?

It’s A Pleasant And Painless Process

We make it easy to get veneers in Oregon City.

Your veneers will be completed over the course of two appointments.

In our office, we place veneers under local anesthesia and only minimally prepare the teeth. What does that mean? Well, to prepare the tooth, we have to remove a portion of the enamel, about 3mm, to ensure that the veneer will fit comfortably. Here’s the thing about porcelain veneers: the tooth cannot be unprepared, so it’s important to make sure the treatment is right for you.

We use impressions of your teeth to find the most appropriate size and shape for the permanent restoration. We also use the mold to create a wax-up of your mouth. Using the wax-up, we can show you how the final restoration will look and fit.

After we have your veneers in hand, usually a week or two later, you’ll just need to come back for the final stage. We’ll fit you with your veneers and permanently attach them. They will look and feel amazing!

Then you can enjoy your summer without any more worries about the state of affairs in your mouth.
