Affordable Porcelain Dental Veneers in Encino, CA
Veneers are tooth-colored thin shells of porcelain that are attached to the front surface of teeth to improve their look. Veneers cover gaps, chips, stains, and other cosmetic imperfections on your teeth.
The Facts About Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin, custom-made moldings that cover the fronts of unsightly teeth. They are crafted from tooth-colored, high tech materials, often porcelain, for a natural looking bright smile. After the tooth is reshaped, the veneer is permanently bonded, held in place by the latest bonding resins that adhere the back of the veneer to the front of the tooth. The finished result is extremely strong and durable.
Porcelain Veneer Benefits
Veneers are normally stain resistant, strong and durable. Veneers reflect light similar to normal teeth and are made with tooth-colored porcelain or resin. Resin are thinner than porcelain and requires less amount of your tooth in order to attach. Veneers resist stains better than resin.
Problems Veneers can solve:
- Gaps, Misaligned Teeth: Large gaps are closed and new smile is created with gum re-contouring and porcelain veneers.
- Chipped and Worn Teeth: Chipped and Worn teeth can be straightened, and lengthened with porcelain veneers.
- Stains and Discoloration: Discolored, Stained Teeth can be straightened with bonded porcelain veneers.
- Broken teeth: New smile is created with gingival re-contouring and porcelain veneers.
What to expect when getting veneers:
Getting veneer usually requires three trips to the dentist. Your first appointment is generally consultation to find out if veneers is the right choice for you. You can tell your dentist the result you are trying to achieve. Dr. Zadeh will then make an assessment if veneers are right for you and she will discuss the procedure and its limits. She will then proceed with make impressions of your mouth and teeth to create a model of your veneers.
The second and third appointments are two to make and apply the veneers. The bonding resins and porcelain veneers are applied. When the veneers are in place, an plasma light is used to harden the adhesive.
