You know that a winning smile is the best asset you can have for getting ahead in your career and your social life.
So what are you waiting for?

Don’t tell me you still think cosmetic dentistry is the domain of the rich and famous! A brand new Hollywood smile is now available to everyone – and every budget.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are durable thin shells designed to cover the front of your teeth in order to improve their appearance. Dental veneers are bonded to your teeth to give you a permanently radiant smile.

Veneers made from porcelain are the best, but dental veneers are also made from newer composite material. However, porcelain resists stains better than composite materials and they reflect light more like natural teeth.

Even dental care specialists like Kristen Ritzau DDS sometimes have trouble telling the difference between real teeth and porcelain covers.

These Are NOT Your Mother’s Caps!

The best thing about porcelain veneers is how easy they are to apply and care for. The procedure is minimally invasive and requires just a couple quick visits to Kristen Ritzau’s dental office, in addition to the initial in-office consultation.

Modern cosmetic dentistry has come a long way, and giving your smile a complete makeover has never been easier. Porcelain veneers are the painless and cost-efficient way to correct teeth that are:

  • Discolored – for any reason
  • Worn down, chipped or broken
  • Mis-aligned, uneven, or gapped

How Are Porcelain Veneers Bonded To Real Teeth?

The dental lab work for dental veneers is nothing short of amazing as the customized veneers are made to perfectly match your natural teeth in fit, color and texture.

But before the dental veneer is attached permanently to your tooth, Kristen Ritzau DDS will perform a final fitting where the veneer is trimmed and adjusted repeatedly to ensure a long-lasting fit. Then the veneer color can be further fine-tuned by using different shades of cement.

After the veneer is cemented to your tooth, Kristen Ritzau DDS will shine a very bright special light that activates the chemicals in the cement to cure it instantly. The resulting bond is actually stronger than your natural teeth.

There has never been a better time to fix your teeth than right now. Cosmetic dentistry is accessible to everyone, so call Kristen Ritzau DDS to schedule a free consultation! (949) 234-6850
