Porcelain dental veneers are a wonderful way to improve the look of your smile.

Often, your teeth may only need very a minor treatment to enhance their health and appearance. If you need cosmetic or functional repairs to your teeth, you should talk to our dentist, Dr. Jorge de la Osa and his team of dentists about porcelain dental veneers in Commerce, California.

Veneers are very thin shells that fit over the fronts of your teeth. While some offices use a resin to for veneers, at Sunshine Dental Group we use veneers that have been crafted out of porcelain. Porcelain is stain-resistant and blends in very well with the rest of your smile.

Why would someone need veneers? Veneers can correct problems such as stained, worn or chipped teeth. They can also add length to teeth that are too short or can close the gaps between teeth that are unevenly spaced. If your teeth are uneven, or misshapen veneers can be used to restore their appearance. Veneers are also useful for correcting very minor alignment problems.

A veneer will protect the front of your tooth, but the back will still be vulnerable to decay. For that reason, you will need to brush and floss your teeth and continue to see the dentist for your regular cleanings and exams.
