Are dark, dingy teeth holding you back or making you feel self-conscious? You do not have to settle for a smile that makes you feel less than your best. Our Los Angeles porcelain veneers dentist uses porcelain veneers to transform smiles that have cosmetic flaws ranging from stains and discolorations to gaps and crooked teeth. If you want a new look, porcelain veneers may be right for you.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a porcelain restoration that is made to cover the outer part of the tooth. The porcelain can be made a lighter color and the desired shape, size, and thickness to achieve the look you want. Our expert in porcelain veneers in Los Angeles can use veneers to cover chips, gaps, discolorations, crooked teeth, stains, worn enamel, uneven teeth, and many other cosmetic flaws.
What to Expect
At your appointment, we will examine your teeth and gums. You should have no untreated dental disease, which could interfere with your results. Any decay or gum disease will need to be addressed before proceeding with any cosmetic treatments. We will ask about your expectations, your concerns and your goals. This helps us learn more about what you want from your smile and what you want to accomplish.
Dental X-rays, impressions, and other records may be taken to develop a treatment plan. Although dental veneers are made extremely thin, they do take up some room on your teeth. Most patients will need to have a small amount of enamel removed. This can be done under local anesthesia if needed, and temporary veneers can be placed. Our Los Angeles porcelain veneers dentist will place your veneers using strong dental cement.
Veneers can last for 15 or more years, and they can keep your smile looking great the whole time. They require no special care other than good dental hygiene. Brush and floss as recommended, and visit us regularly for cleanings and checkups.
