What Are Porcelain Veneers

Want cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile that will last for years? If so, porcelain veneers are the dental enhancement for you. Hollywood celebrities have dazzling white grins from porcelain veneers, and this option is available to you at Los Angeles Dentists office of New Image Dental.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that attach to individual teeth. They are also custom tailored to each patient for a perfect size and fit. Porcelain veneers attach to each tooth separately with the use of a resin and a curing light.

A tiny portion of enamel is removed prior to attachment of the veneers, but it is typically less than a millimeter.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are Made to Last

Los Angeles Dentists - What Are VeneersUnlike merely whitening your teeth, porcelain veneers maintain their appearance for years. Aside from looking great, porcelain veneers easily last for longer than 10 years and are durable enough to withstand normal eating and drinking. They are also stain resistant and will survive the harsh effects of coffee, tea, and soda better than merely whitened teeth.

Porcelain Veneers Offer More than Just Cosmetic Benefits

Porcelain veneers do more than brighten your smile. Veneers are designed to be corrective treatment for broken, chipped, and misaligned teeth. Veneers also can be used to fill in spaces between teeth. These improvements will align your bite and can make talking and eating easier.

Porcelain Veneers are Customizable

As mentioned above, porcelain veneers are tailored for each individual mouth. Your dentist will take the time to carefully measure the size and shape of your teeth and order veneers that will correct any dental issue you may have.

Furthermore, though some Hollywood celebrities opt for a mouth full of veneers, you can select the number of teeth you want covered with the porcelain.

If you choose to only correct a few teeth, our office dentists will select the perfect color for your veneers in order to match the rest of your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers are a Quick and Relatively Painless Dental Option

Once you decide to get porcelain veneers, the process moves very quickly. You will need a few trips to our Los Angeles dental office for sizing and the attachment, but these steps are far more tolerable than most dental surgeries.

You will need to eat softer foods for a few days after the addition of veneers, but this is temporary. After that time passes and you have a follow-up appointment with your dentist to check the fit, you are free to return to normal eating and drinking.

How Do I Know if Porcelain Veneers are Right for Me?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic enhancement that accommodates those with several types of dental issues. The main requirement is that you have healthy teeth and gums. Proper brushing and flossing are necessary both before and after the addition of the veneers.
