Porcelain Dental Veneers
One of the fastest ways to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile is by using dental veneers. Our North Hollywood cosmetic dentist can use porcelain veneers to correct numerous aesthetic issues, including stains, misalignments, gaps, chips, misshapen teeth and cracks. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are made to match your teeth exactly and are bonded using an incredibly strong resin so that your smile is permanently whiter, brighter and more even. Dental veneers can not only enhance the appearance of teeth, but they can also support, stabilize and protect teeth, which may prevent further damage and reduce the need for more extensive restorations later.
If our North Hollywood porcelain dental veneers dentist determines that you are a candidate for porcelain veneers, you will have a small portion of dental enamel removed. This allows room for the proper placement of the veneers, which fit directly over the fronts of teeth. If teeth are healthy and intact, the amount of enamel will likely be minimal while teeth that have suffered extensive damage or that are misaligned may need to be more contoured.
Porcelain Dental Veneers Specialist North Hollywood
A dental mold or impression will be taken so that the laboratory can create your new dental veneers. When they are complete, our specialist for porcelain dental veneers in North Hollywood will bond them permanently to your teeth. Porcelain veneers are a permanent restoration because tooth structure must be removed. If you would prefer a veneer that can be reversed, Lumineers may be an option. Lumineers are made of an extremely thin, very strong ceramic and can be placed with little or no preparation of your enamel. Our North Hollywood porcelain dental veneers dentist can help you determine the type of veneers that may be best for you and your dental health.
Maintain your new dental veneers by brushing, flossing and visiting our expert in porcelain dental veneers in North Hollywood every six months. Avoid excessive alcohol, which can damage the bonding material. Using your teeth as tools may leave your new veneers more susceptible to breakage or damage.
