Hiding your smile can feel like hiding an important part of yourself. Sadly, many people hide their smiles behind closed lips or concealing hands, or they simply avoid smiling altogether. You can make a different choice. If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, our Los Angeles porcelain veneers expert may recommend veneers, which cover unattractive teeth for a beautiful new look.
Veneers are a special type of restoration that is used for cosmetic purposes. The veneer is made of a thin sheet of porcelain that is molded to cover the front of the tooth. Dental porcelain is extremely strong and looks just like natural enamel, and once it is attached to the tooth, it can last for many years. Our expert in porcelain veneers in Los Angeles can use veneers to improve the look of teeth that are gapped, chipped, misshapen, stained, discolored, fractured, cracked, worn or otherwise damaged.
Porcelain Veneers Los Angeles
The process is completed over the course of several appointments. At the first appointment, our Los Angeles porcelain veneers expert will evaluate your teeth, listen to your goals and determine if veneers are right for you. The next step is to prepare your teeth. This is done under local anesthetic for your comfort, and some of the enamel is buffed away to make room for the porcelain layer. Impressions are made to create a model of your teeth, and the veneers are then designed and crafted. At your final visit, the veneers will be checked for fit and appearance, and once everything is just the way you want it, the veneers are bonded to your teeth.
Taking care of your new veneers is not much different from taking care of your teeth. Our expert in porcelain veneers in Los Angeles will provide you with specific instructions to keep your veneers looking great. You need to brush after meals and floss daily to keep the teeth healthy and the porcelain veneers in good shape. You also need to schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings.
