Veneers for a Hollywood Smile
Hollywood smiles are smiles that are dazzling with beauty and not just in their perfection. These are teeth that are straight, white, and are properly proportioned with just the right amount of gum tissue exposed. Not everyone is born with a Hollywood-ready smile, but with the right treatments everyone can have one.
Veneers are porcelain shells that work similarly to contact lenses and are about the same thickness. The porcelain is strong like dental enamel, so protection is a great benefit with veneers. They have a beautiful, translucent quality that can transform the look of your teeth, also. Since veneers resist stains, you can conceal just about any flaw, ranging from chips and worn enamel to deep stains and gaps. They can change the color, shape, size and length of your teeth, as well.
If you have healthy teeth and gums, you may be a candidate for veneers. You will need about three dental visits with our expert in veneers in North Hollywood to complete the process. After designing your new smile, your teeth will be prepared for bonding by removing a small amount of enamel for comfortable, contoured results. At the final visit, your veneers will be applied and bonded permanently.
Caring for your veneers can keep them looking beautiful for many years. They will need to be brushed and flossed along with your natural teeth on a routine basis. Be especially careful along the border between the porcelain and the tooth to reduce the risk of cavities developing here. Do not bite or chew on non-food items, especially if they are hard. Once they are in place, they can last up to 15 years or longer and can even help protect the underlying teeth. Call us to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our team.
