Dental veneers are wafer-thin porcelain or composite resin shells that are bonded to the fronts of teeth in order to improve their shape, size or color. Porcelain dental veneers are highly stain resistant and can reflect light just like your own natural teeth. Although composite resin veneers tend to absorb more stains and can have a decreased lifespan, they generally require less enamel preparation before placement. Lumineers are a specific brand of porcelain veneers that require very little enamel preparation but still offer the same lasting coverage of traditional dental veneers. Our Beverly Hills dental veneers specialist can help you determine the best option for your needs.
Our specialist for dental veneers in Beverly Hills can use dental veneers to correct teeth that are deeply stained, worn, chipped or damaged, teeth that are discolored due to root canal treatment, misaligned teeth or teeth that have gaps. If you are a candidate for dental veneers, you may need between one and three appointments.
Specialist for Dental Veneers Beverly Hills
At your first appointment, our Beverly Hills dental veneers specialist will work closely with you to design the smile of your dreams. Dental X-rays and impressions may be necessary in order to better create your new veneers. Our dentist will then need to prepare your teeth. A very small amount of enamel will be trimmed from your teeth if you are having traditional dental veneers placed. Dental impressions will again be taken, and within one to two weeks, your new veneers will be ready.
Our Beverly Hills dental veneers specialist will then check your veneers to ensure they are the right shape and color before permanently cementing them to your teeth. Your teeth will then be cleaned, polished and etched with a special liquid to ensure the best possible bond. Once the veneers are properly positioned, the cement will be cured using a special, high-intensity light so that your bright, beautiful, stain-free smile can last for years.
