Porcelain Veneers for a New Hollywood Smile

Porcelain veneers could be the answer if you have chipped or cracked teeth. If you have badly stained teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional teeth whitening methods, talk to Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena dentists about porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are more affordable than you think and are certainly not just reserved for the rich and famous.

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are placed directly on the front of your teeth. Because a small portion of the tooth needs to be removed to make way for the veneer, dental veneers are permanent.

Before Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena dentists can place your new porcelain veneers, your teeth and gums will be checked to make sure that they are healthy enough for any cosmetic dental procedure, as you will need to be free from tooth decay and gum disease.

If you are given the all clear, Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists will remove a small portion of the enamel on your teeth, you may or may not require anesthetic for this part of the cosmetic dental treatment. Once a small amount of enamel is removed, a mold or impression will be made so that your veneers can be custom made. If your teeth are unsightly, temporary veneers may be placed.

Once your new veneers are ready, which could take a couple of weeks, Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists will roughen the tooth so that the bonding material will adhere to both the tooth and the veneer. Once placed, the veneers will be checked for fit before being permanently placed.

Dental Crowns in One Appointment Yes Really!

Dental crowns are used for both restorative and cosmetic dental work. Dental crowns are used to cover root canals or to cap a large filling. Dental crowns can also be used like porcelain veneers to repair chips and cracks and to fill small spaces between your teeth.

Twenty-five years ago, dentists had no choice but to use metal and porcelain for dental crowns. An impression was made that needed to be sent to a dental lab, this usually took about a week. During that time patients were required to wear an uncomfortable dental crown until the permanent crown could be replaced. Thankfully, that isn’t the case anymore.

CEREC is the CAD/CAM system that allows Dr. Paul Shinto and his team of Pasadena Dentists to create, manufacture, and place a dental crown in a single dental visit. It really is that simple. You can walk in for your crown and walk out with a beautiful, permanent new dental crown.

With CEREC Dr. Paul Shinto will take digital pictures of the tooth or teeth that are to be crowned. After the images have been taken, Dr. Paul Shinto will check the images and make any changes that may be needed for proper fit and color. A shade will also be chosen to match the rest of your smile. When all of the information is inputted into the CAD/CAM system, it will be sent to a milling machine that is located in Dr. Paul Shinto’s dental office. All you have to do is relax for about 30 minutes while your new CEREC crown is being made. Once the milling machine has done its job, your new crown will be checked for color and fit before being securely bonded into place. After the final polishing you will be ready to walk out the door with a brand new dental crown.
