Porcelain Veneers for Stained, Damaged, or Misaligned Teeth

Many problems, including chipped, cracked, decaying, yellowing, or misaligned teeth, can keep you from having an enviable smile. Porcelain veneers are simple restorations that can correct any and all of these problems. At our practice in Orange County, porcelain veneers have done wonders for hundreds of patients.

Porcelain veneers are simple, but well-designed restorations that are extremely effective for correcting a variety of tooth problems. Veneers are custom -made porcelain shells, fashioned from a tooth-like material, which are designed to bond to the front surfaces of existing teeth. At our office in Orange County, porcelain veneers are custom made by our in-house technicians, and precisely applied by Dr. John Eriksmoen, a cosmetic dentist with more than 30 years of experience.

Dr. Eriksmoen prefers porcelain veneers over composite ones for his patients because porcelain veneers more closely resemble natural teeth. The translucent quality of the porcelain mimics the reflective patterns of natural teeth. Our cosmetic dentist also recommends porcelain veneers because they are less likely to stain than their composite counterparts. This feature of porcelain veneers is especially important to patients who drink coffee, tea, or wine and to those who smoke.

Other cosmetic dentistry procedures at our office, such as tooth whitening and dental bonding, can correct some of the same problems as porcelain veneers. If you live in the Orange County area and are considering porcelain veneers, contact Dr. John Eriksmoen to discuss which procedure will better suit your needs.

Dental Bonding for Chips and Small Imperfections

Because of the numerous cosmetic dentistry procedures offered at our Orange County office, including dental bonding, porcelain veneers, tooth whitening, porcelain crowns, and others, it is easy for patients to become confused about which procedure is the right one for their specific needs.

To correct small chips, gaps, and imperfections, many patients, including those at our Orange County practice, opt for dental bonding. A less expensive alternative to porcelain veneers, dental bonding can fix many minor tooth problems quickly and effectively. Dental bonding is typically used to repair smaller imperfections than those requiring porcelain veneers.

During the dental bonding procedure, cosmetic dentist John Eriksmoen prepares the tooth or teeth through an etching process, applies a tooth-colored resin to the affected tooth or gap, carefully sculpts the dental resin to correct the problem, and allows the resin to harden. Once the sculpted dental bonding resin sets, the patient is left with a beautiful smile.

Although the dental bonding process is relatively simple in theory and often takes less than an hour, it requires very precise skills to achieve the best results. Orange County dental bonding professional Dr. Eriksmoen draws upon his many years of experience to produce excellent, consistent dental bonding results.

To find out if dental bonding can repair your smile, schedule an appointment with our Southern California cosmetic dentist today.

Crowns and Bridges for Missing or Damaged Teeth

For those with chipped, cracked, decayed, or badly damaged teeth, crowns often offer the best solution for restoration. The dental crowns are created in our dental office like our porcelain veneers . Made from a natural-looking porcelain/ceramic blend, the crowns are designed to fit over the top of the existing tooth. Sometimes called caps, crowns properly crafted and fitted by a professional such as Dr. John Eriksmoen can result in perfectly functioning, undetectable, strong, long-lasting teeth.

Bridges are often the quickest, most simple solution to missing teeth – so named because they bridge the gap where a tooth is missing. Bridges are crafted in our Orange County lab and implemented by Dr. Eriksmoen to replace missing teeth and leave the patient with a full, natural looking smile.

Contact Dr. John Eriksmoen today if you think crowns or bridges may be right for you.
