Veneers Can Work Christmas Smile Miracles
Hello again. Thanks for visiting the Westwood Dental Smiles blog! We are the dentist in Los Angeles, California that you can turn to for all your dental needs.
Through this online platform, we pride ourselves on providing good oral health information as well as fun facts. For example, did you know that a hippopotamus has 42 to 44 teeth? True story! And when a hippo gets angry, it opens its mouth and shows its big teeth. Maybe you are angry about bothersome aspects of your smile that make you want to never open your mouth again! If that is the case, we would love to introduce you to the world of cosmetic dentistry, something that the wild kingdom never has to worry about!
In today’s blog post, we want to revisit a way to cosmetically transform the appearance of cracked, chipped, or stained teeth.
Veneers Are A Modern Marvel
For cosmetic dentistry solutions, veneers are a great long-term fix that will make your teeth appear to be flawless and brilliant.
Veneers are highly durable shells that get applied to the front of your existing teeth.
They provide a realistic, tooth-colored look that will give you a brilliant smile. If your teeth have been damaged or simply has a few imperfections, a veneer will make it look completely restored.
Veneers are usually made of composite or porcelain, but we use porcelain because it is considered superior due to its durability and similarity to real enamel. Plus, porcelain is translucent and reflects light the way real teeth do. Don’t worry, our team exactly matches porcelain veneers to the best color for your teeth for a seamless and all-natural look.
Applying veneers can be done easily in two visits to our L.A. dental office.
To get the ball rolling, we will take an impression of your tooth so that we can create a veneer that will fit over the tooth while looking and feeling perfectly natural.
Once we have your individualized veneer, you will need to come in for your second part of the treatment. At that time, we will carefully remove a small section of the surface of your teeth and bond the veneer to your tooth to replace that section.
In the end, your smile will have an amazing new look!
Our team can apply veneers to your mouth quickly and easily, and we always take care to minimize any discomfort.
Sounds cool, right?
Take The Next Step!
Don’t let bad teeth keep you down. Now that you know what veneers can do for you, what’s holding you back? With a new year just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to transform your look!
During your consultation, we will explain the pros and cons of the procedure and what to expect during and after treatment. As we discussed, it usually takes two appointments to complete porcelain veneer treatments. And your mouth must be healthy (free of decay and gum disease), and your enamel must be thick and strong enough.
