Porcelain veneers are commonly used on front teeth when an individual has stained or cracked teeth, or teeth that need to be strengthened. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to create the natural look of a tooth, while changing the look of the tooth by altering the shape, size, or color.
To determine if you are a candidate for dental veneers, call our dental office in Sunset to schedule a consultation. We will evaluate your teeth to determine if veneers are the right option for you, as there are multiple solutions available. We will match the porcelain close to the color of your teeth to ensure it looks correct. We begin with a smile analysis to determine what a mock-up of your smile will look like when we change the front structure of the teeth.
What are Dental Veneers?
The porcelain laminate veneers include several thin ceramic layers which replace the original enamel of the tooth. We use a thin adhesive layer and apply it to the veneer to hold it against the tooth. A small amount of the enamel will need to be removed prior to adding the veneer to the tooth. Typically less than a millimeter is removed from the tooth to create space for the dental veneers. The bond between the porcelain veneer and the tooth is strong and needs to be cured properly to ensure it holds to the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most successful options available for patients hoping to change the color, size, and contours of a tooth. Veneers are individually shaped for each patient, which is beneficial for patients hoping to have an affordable smile makeover.
