A smile can change the course of someone’s day – especially if that smile is particularly lovely. It can also boost your self-confidence and help you to love that person in the mirror. Chronic staining problems, mismatched fillings, chips or other dental damage can leave you looking for solutions.

Some tooth staining issues can be solved by a single professional whitening. Other dental issues are more complex. One of the best ways to enhance the overall appearance of your smile and help resist future dental stains is to have your smile enhanced by dental veneers.

Dental veneers are thin, durable shells made from a dental-grade porcelain material. They are custom-designed in a professional lab to fit over the faces of each of your teeth. They are also not nearly as receptive to stains as your natural tooth enamel. Dental veneers can last as long as ten years before needing to be replaced.

If one or two of your teeth have extensive tooth decay or the tooth enamel has been compromised by a former filling, Dr. James Hargas might advocate a porcelain crown restoration instead.

If you live in the Oceanside, California area and you are interested in learning more about dental veneers, you should call 760.433.0393 to arrange a consultation with Dr. James Hargas.
