Porcelain Dental Veneers
PORCELAIN DENTAL VENEERS LOS ANGELES
Porcelain dental veneers are among the most popular procedures chosen by patients whose teeth are flawed.
Porcelain veneers, which are thin shells that are bonded to teeth, can be used to permanently conceal flaws involving structure or color.
A majority of adult patients who are unhappy with how their teeth look are candidates for veneers.
However, patients whose teeth or gums are currently affected by disease or decay may receive recommendations for restorative treatment from our expert in porcelain veneers in Los Angeles beforehand.
Patients who require orthodontics will need to wait until after their teeth have been straightened before getting veneers.
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. As long as 10 years 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.
Enamel is strong, but not indestructible.
Your enamel may still be worn down from overzealous tooth brushing or eaten away by highly acidic foods and drinks. This can become a cause for concern because lost enamel will not regenerate.
Fortunately, it can be replaced. Veneers are an excellent treatment for teeth with enamel abrasion or enamel erosion and are aesthetically pleasing at the same time.
Veneers are considered permanent because your dentist needs to change the structure of your natural teeth to properly place them. In this way, the outer layer of your enamel may be removed to make room.
WILL A GUM VENEER HELP YOUR RECEDING GUMS?
When the gums recede, the roots of the teeth become exposed, so the teeth look longer. A gum veneer can help improve the look of receding gums.
- Your dentist will remove a small amount of the tooth surface to permit placement of the veneer.
- Anesthesia maybe required during this procedure.
- An impression is taken of the tooth and sent to the dental laboratory.
- The dental veneer is then made to fit the tooth and mouth.
- The veneer is bonded to the tooth with resin cement.
- Some people experience an increase in tooth sensitivity after getting veneers. You may feel sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures for the first few days after your procedure, but it usually goes away.
