You have probably noticed that some smiles look nice, while others positively pop with perfection. The difference is often veneers. The team of professionals at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills in Beverly Hills, CA includes experts in the design and placement of porcelain dental veneers.
Dental porcelain veneers – the basics
A veneer is a thin shell of strong, lustrous porcelain. Compared to the composite material used for fillings, this hard ceramic is better at resisting stains and is more durable. Each veneer is precisely designed to cover the front surface of a “show tooth.” A single tooth may be treated in this manner, or the visible four, six, or eight in an arch.
Veneers are fabricated at a professional dental ceramics laboratory, so the process generally takes just two visits – one for prep, and one for final placement. Teeth can be protected with interim veneers meanwhile, if they are sensitive.
With good home hygiene and regular checkups, veneers provide many years of service.
Dental porcelain veneers transform a multitude of smile imperfections:
- Enamel quality – Veneers cover natural pits and bumps as well as chips and fractures in enamel.
- Size – Veneers bring beautiful balance to the smile, adjusting the appearance of teeth that look too large or small.
- Shape – A tooth that is oddly shaped or worn down can be improved with a veneer.
- Color – Veneers are an excellent choice to mask discoloration that does not respond to whitening (such as intrinsic stains from medication).
- Alignment – Sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics,” veneers correct the appearance of minor misalignment, including gaps between teeth.
