Teeth don’t always look as healthy as they are. Even if you take excellent care of your teeth, that doesn’t guarantee you a glowing smile. Time can alter even perfect smiles, causing teeth to appear crooked, chipped, marred, or eroded by years of hard use. Drs. Claudia and Alex Denes want all their patients to have smiles that are as beautiful as they are healthy. If you aren’t happy with the appearance of your smile, we offer a number of cosmetic treatments, such as whitening, bonding, and porcelain veneers.

If you’ve never considered cosmetic dentistry, consider this: physiological research has determined that smiling and laughing are not just the result of happiness, but can actually cause it. Smiling more can actually improve your mood, overall health, and likability.
If you aren’t happy with your smile, you will naturally be more inhibited in both your private and professional relationships, and that’s rarely a good thing. Smile makeovers give you the chance to smile and laugh freely again. When you see your new smile you’ll love the way you look, and find yourself smiling non-stop. As your self-confidence goes up, you find yourself more efficient and joyful in many areas of your life.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Porcelain veneers can fix all these aesthetic problems, and more, by giving your teeth a brand new surface and shape in the form of a wafer-thin layer of dental porcelain. Porcelain may seem like a fragile mateial, but veneers are constructed by a dental laboratory to be as durable and strong as the restorations that protect your teeth from decay. Once the veneers are affixed to your natural enamel, they are a permanent component of your smile and will resist stains and other wear and tear better that your natural enamel.
In the past, veneers may have been large and artificial looking, but today they are indistinguishable from natural enamel. If you have ever seen a person on TV with an average, flawed smile suddenly show up with a Hollywood-perfect smile, and wondered how it was possible—we guarantee it was porcelain veneers. View our smile gallery to see examples of porcelain veneers we’ve done for Fresno Dental Studio patients, and you’ll see how natural and luminous they can be.
As a permanent improvement to your smile, veneers can last up to 20 or more years before requiring maintenance or corrections. Even at the low end of the spectrum, most veneers last longer than the average composite resin filling (about 8 years).
The process of getting veneers requires only two dental appointments, and a short wait as your veneers are constructed. When you come to Fresno Dental Studio, we will help you determine what your new smile will look like and take a dental impression of your natural teeth. Veneers can be made in a number of hues; some patients opt for a dramatically lightened smile, while others prefer a more natural looking white. You can choose to retain the elements that make your smile unique, or go for a perfectly balanced and symmetrical smile. The choice is yours.
After your veneers are ready (usually less than two weeks), you will have a second appointment for tooth preparation and to have the veneers affixed. It’s that simple.
