Dr. Jason Baldwin offers a full range of treatment options including porcelain veneers. He has been helping patients achieve the smile they desire with personalized cosmetic dentistry.
Highly trained in the latest techniques and utilizing high-quality materials, Dr. Baldwin combines skill and an eye for the aesthetic when placing custom dental veneers with natural-looking results. Porcelain veneers can be a permanent solution for cosmetic concerns such as tooth discoloration, a misshapen tooth, gaps between teeth or damaged teeth.
Made of an ultra-thin but highly durable layer of porcelain ceramic, porcelain veneers are custom color matched and fit for your smile. Once placed, they will reflect light much like natural teeth and provide many years of wear and stain resistance due to the quality of the material and the high standard of care we offer when it comes to cosmetic and restorative dental treatments. Considered a permanent dental restoration, porcelain veneers can be used to address:
- Aging teeth that have worn down
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Stained, discolored, or yellowed teeth that do not respond to teeth whitening
- Stained, unsightly, or washed-out fillings
- Misshapen or crooked teeth that do not need orthodontic treatment
- Gaps between teeth
Porcelain Veneer Process
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Baldwin at his Lake Tahoe, CA cosmetic dentistry office. It is important to determine if you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers and that they will meet your oral health and cosmetic goals. Dr. Baldwin will meet with you to evaluate your dental health and discuss your concerns before creating a personalized treatment plan for you.
Dental impressions will be taken and your custom porcelain veneers will be color matched and completed in a dental lab. Dr. Baldwin uses digital color matching software which brings a level of accuracy to your treatment planning that cannot be achieved with the naked eye and provides customized results that will meet and exceed your expectations for a smile that looks natural.
The next step is to prepare the teeth to be treated by removing as little surface structure as possible. This will ensure a comfortable placement and fit for the veneers. In most cases, we will place temporary veneers on the teeth for comfort and appearance until the final restoration is ready. Dental impressions will then be taken and used to fabricate your porcelain veneers.
Once the custom porcelain veneers are complete, you will return to our cosmetic dentistry office in Lake Tahoe, CA for the final placement of your restorations. Any necessary last-minute adjustments will be made for a comfortable and stable fit.
We will permanently secure them and make any necessary last-minute adjustments for fit. During your routine dental visits, Dr. Baldwin will monitor the condition of your veneers, spotting and addressing any damage to maximize the longevity of your new smile. With good oral hygiene and proper routine dental care, your porcelain veneers can last for many years.
