Porcelain Veneers in La Mirada

including porcelain veneers.
Veneers Offer a Hollywood Smile
If you’ve ever wondered how celebrities get their perfect smiles, veneers are usually the answer. While teeth whitening can brighten teeth that are healthy and straight, only veneers can conceal intrinsic staining and superficial structural damage. Veneers can even make mildly misaligned teeth look perfect.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
• Crooked teeth.
• Misshapen teeth.
• Severely discolored or stained teeth.
• Teeth that are too small or large.
• Unwanted or uneven spaces.
• Worn or chipped teeth.
Veneers are a cosmetic method of creating a bright, even, and all-around beautiful smile.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken, and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
If you only need a few veneers to address chipped or cracked teeth and want a uniformly whiter smile you can opt for teeth whitening before your veneer appointment. This allows you to choose a lighter shade for your veneer and saves you money since whitening costs less than veneers.
When you return to our La Mirada dental practice to receive your veneers, the teeth will be prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer and to ensure a secure hold. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer, and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
