Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. Porcelain veneers can last for decades with routine care, including brushing and flossing at home and regular check-ups in our office. Avoidance of coffee, tea, wine, and smoking can also help preserve the color of veneers.
By scheduling a consultation with our Los Angeles cosmetic dentist, patients can learn more about porcelain veneers and find out if they are candidates for this procedure.
For teeth that are severely discolored, chipped or misshapen, veneers create a durable and pleasing smile. Plus, veneers are difficult to stain, making them popular for people seeking a perfect smile.
Dental veneers are thin pieces of tooth-colored porcelain cemented to the front surfaces of your natural teeth, and are an easy way to address a variety of physical and aesthetic problems.
Dental Veneers are permanent and easily whitens your smile.Years of drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes or eating highly pigmented foods eventually take their toll on your teeth, turning them an unattractive shade of yellow or brown.
Stained enamel can be bleached at home or by our office, but it can become stained again. If you’re looking for an easier way to whiten your smile for good, dental veneers may be a good fit for you.
Veneers are largely stain-resistant, so with a good oral hygiene routine, you won’t have to worry about discoloration or needing to have your veneers whitened.
Slightly crooked or gapped teeth can be treated with braces or other orthodontic treatments, but these problems can also be helped with veneers as well.
Veneers are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth – so although they don’t change their positions, they do camouflage minor orthodontic problems.
It’s important to note that veneers can’t always replace orthodontic treatment, we will determine whether you will need orthodontics instead of placing veneers.
