Woodland Hill's Top Rated Local® Veneers

series of dental veneers

Dental veneers are custom-made shells that bond over the front surfaces of your teeth. It can be made from different materials. However, porcelain Veneers are popular due to longevity and natural results.

Who needs Veneers?

Anyone who wants to enhance the appearance of their smile can explore veneers. These cosmetic restorations can be used as long as tooth structure is intact and is not cavitated.

Reasons for porcelain Veneers:

  • Chipped or broken teeth.
  • Diastema (gaps or spaces in your smile).
  • Stains that do not improve with teeth whitening.
  • Teeth that are too small.
  • Misshapen teeth.

The Veneers Process

During your initial consultation, your dentist will consider a variety of factors including your face shape, bite, and oral health. You and your dentist will discuss your smile goals and any questions you may have. Once your treatment plan is set, the veneers process involves the following appointments:

First appointment: Preparation and Temporary Veneers

To prepare your teeth, your dentist will lightly remove a thin layer of enamel. Then, he or she will take an impression of your teeth which will be used to create your unique set of veneers. Your dentist will put temporary veneers in place to help protect your teeth from hot and cold sensitivity. They also make your teeth appear uniform as you wait for your permanent set.

Second appointment: Permanent Veneers bonding and Adjustments

After removing your temporary veneers, your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned. Your dentist at Elegant Dental Center will make sure that it matches the color of your teeth. Then, your permanent veneers will be bonded in place. Final adjustments will be done by your dentist.

After the Procedure

Take care of your veneers the same way you care for your teeth with regular brushing, flossing and dental visits. You should also avoid biting your nails or chewing on any hard materials to protect your veneers.
