Dental veneers are a type of restoration that can be used to improve the appearance of your smile. They are versatile enough to be used to correct just about any smile problem that you have, and they can last for many years with good maintenance. Our Los Angeles dental veneers expert can help you decide if dental veneers are right for you.
You may be a candidate for dental veneers if you have chipped, stained, misshapen, cracked, worn or misaligned teeth. Veneers are primarily cosmetic in nature, but they can help boost your smile confidence and may even improve your dental health because many people become more committed to good dental habits after having them placed. They are usually made of porcelain, which can be tinted and shaped precisely to look like natural teeth, and they are wafer thin so that only minimal preparation is required. Our expert in dental veneers in Los Angeles can usually place veneers in just a few dental visits.
Porcelain Dental Veneers Los Angeles
At your first appointment, our Los Angeles porcelain veneers expert will examine your teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy and that you are a candidate for the procedure. Dental X-rays and impressions may be taken at this appointment. We will work closely with you to design your new smile for a look that is most flattering for you. Your teeth will need to be prepared, which means that a small amount of enamel will need to be buffed from the teeth. This allows for a closer, more comfortable fit.
Your veneers will be placed at a later appointment. Our expert in porcelain veneers in Los Angeles will check the fit and appearance of your newly made porcelain veneers before bonding them into position. Once your veneers are in place, you can use them just like your own teeth. Brush them with a nonabrasive fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled brush, and floss daily. You may need to schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure your veneers are fitting comfortably and properly.
