What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a fast method for enhancing your smile and hiding chipped, crooked, decayed, or stained teeth. Contemporary Dental Health The Center for Advanced Dentistry offers this highly customized treatment. Veneers are slim shells made of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance their color, size, shape, or length. Make an appointment at our Lake Oswego, OR office to learn more about custom porcelain veneers and how they can reshape your smile.
What Can I Expect From Porcelain Veneers?
After we've helped you develop your unique treatment plan, we will take impressions of your teeth. Your veneers may be created in our office as you wait, or your impressions may be sent to a dental laboratory to be made with high-quality porcelain. When your veneers are ready, we will take a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth. This allows room for the veneers and enhances their bond for more natural, long-lasting results. When your veneers are secured, we will make minor adjustments to ensure proper fit.
Getting veneers does not typically require anesthesia so you should be able to go right back to your daily routine. You may have sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks for a couple of days. Veneers should be cared for just like your own teeth with regular brushing and flossing. Porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains than your natural teeth, but you should avoid staining foods and drinks to keep them white. To prevent chipping, avoid chewing on hard objects, like ice. We'll track the condition of your veneers during your regular appointments at Contemporary Dental Health The Center for Advanced Dentistry.
Contemporary Dental Health Reviews
Excellent in every way! Professional, kind, and knowledgeable.
Am so glad I took my time finding a new dentist after moving to Lake Oswego in Dec. 2018. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Ogawa, (who is a neuromuscular cosmetic dentist), and his amazing staff! The minute you walk in the office, you know you are in a special place! The energy and the decor are warm, compassionate and relaxing, and LeeAnna is such a bright light. She runs the office like a boss with a loving smile and sense of humor, all the while juggling a million and one tasks. Dorcas is so gentle and kind, and gave me the best cleaning of my life. Last but not least, Dr. Ogawa is gentle, soft spoken and friendly, taking his time listening to your concerns and asking questions.
LeeAnna is my favorite, and I'm always glad to see her when I come thru the doors. She has a heart of gold and her work at the front desk and behind the scenes keep this place firing on all cylinders. Dr. Ogawa listened and spoke with me, not at, or over me. I'd been through sorta an ordeal with seriously failed dental work from another office. My emotions and wallet were burned thru by the time I found them. My last dentist took 3 tries at a crown b4 giving me what Ogawa did in 1. During my previous dentist's 3 tries, I'd had two of my own original teeth break off as a consequence. His training and personality are such that he won't forget your teeth are connected to your jaw, head, neck, etc...And if you want conservative treatment, he will provide it. Contemp Dental gave me what others could not, and they gave it to me right away, even tho I couldn't pay for a couple weeks. You will not encounter apathy here, but you will meet his kind brother, empathy. They maintain beyond the industry standard. Plus, dental hygienists, Vikki and Dorcas, maintain a following all of their own. I've been lucky enough to have them on and off for 20 years, as they've changed locations. That they work in this office, with Ogawa, all together now, says much for the whole group and affirms my thinking that this is the place to be for both routine cleanings, and hardcore restorations. This is a group of practitioners and office staff, working as hard as they can to be the smiling professionals you'd be well served to enjoy. I thought I added captions to the attached photos, the nice circled temporary crown came from Contemporary Dental, while the two offensive ones to the right came from Uptown Family Dental. All temporaries were modeled off that same gold crown.
I’ve seen hygienist Dorcas 3 times and my confidence and trust in her keep expanding, which is saying a lot, since she first impressed me as stellar. She is thorough, empathetic, committed, and generous with her deep knowledge, which has been much called upon, as I’ve had some baffling problems in spite of my own scrupulous self-care. What’s more, she is a lovely person with a light touch and light within her, making it a pleasure to be in her hands and company. She brings intelligence, determination, and graciousness to these cleaning sessions, probing the depths of hidden or potential problems. I come out feeling reassured as well as fresh and sparkling. ***** I could hardly wait to go to bed with my freshly adjusted night guard! That was after my most recent session at Contemporary Dental Health. And I awoke happily balanced and tension-free. Crowning implants to perfection, referring me for tori reduction when advisable, resolving inflammation, deftly replacing a cracked crown, always checking my bite - these are major services I’ve received since becoming Dr. Ogawa’s patient in the wake of Dr. Wendling’s departure, after my ten years in her extraordinary care. From the beginning, Dr. Ogawa and LeeAnna have been kind, generous, making time for me in several emergencies, accommodating my own scheduling constraints, and keeping me in health-enhancing and tooth-caring supplies. Dr. Ogawa is a master of patience, focus, and precision. My recent session with him fine-tuning my orthotic night guard underscored these qualities as he calibrated and adjusted with exactitude, and explained why I’d been clenching on the right side after numerous changes (tori reduction, extractions, implants) in my mouth. He’s always clarified any issues so I understand what needs to be corrected, and why. I’m grateful for this and the friendliness of all the staff at Contemporary Dental Health : LeeAnna, Dorcas, Nina, and Dr. Ogawa with his dental wizardry.
I had a full mouth reconstruction. Dr Ogawa and team were exceptional. My mouth is wonderful. If I didn't have the cash for this procedure I would have taken 2nd mortgage out on my home to pay for this. My new teeth are a life changer. I have so much more confidence. Don't hesitate. Dr Ogawa and team are an A+ and I am very picky!!!
