Despite the fact that our teeth are one of the strongest parts in the human body, it is still possible for them to sustain damage. While some damage effects the health of the teeth and must be repaired, other types of damage is strictly cosmetic. In this case, patients have the option of fixing the teeth, or masking the flaws with dental veneers.
About dental veneers
Veneers are thin strips, usually made of porcelain, that are bonded to the teeth, effectively masking a wide variety of flaws. These flaws include:
• Stains and discolorations
• Chips and cracks
• Crooked teeth
• Small and misshapen teeth
• Gaps and crowding
Important facts about dental veneers
Our veneers doctor in Beverly Hills wants patients to know that a small amount of enamel must be removed in order to place the veneers. This is so they do not appear too big with the new addition. As the teeth are not strong enough without this enamel, dental veneers are therefore a permanent restoration.
Patients are happy to learn that they can start enjoying their new smile right away, and that there is no extra care needed to maintain your veneers, and they can brush and floss as normal.
