Dental veneers are a great way to address the flaws in the teeth that are negatively affecting the look of your smile. Issues that compromise your dental and/or oral health will need to be treated, but those that are strictly cosmetic can be covered by veneers, saving you b9oth time and money.
The first step is visiting our North Hollywood porcelain veneer dentist for a consultation. At this appointment, they will determine if you are a candidate, if there are any dental problems that require treatment beforehand, and which teeth will need veneers.
You will then need to bite down on a putty-like material in order to get an impression. This mold will be sent to a lab, where your veneers will be made custom to your teeth. Veneers are most often made of porcelain, a material commonly used in dentistry. Porcelain is very similar to natural dental enamel in that it is very strong, durable, and translucent.
Once your veneers are ready, you will return to our office to have them bonded to the front of the teeth. A very thin layer of enamel will need to be removed so your teeth do not look too big.
