Veneers are very thin, wafer-like shells of porcelain that adhere to the surface of your teeth. Veneers closely resemble your own natural tooth enamel in color and luminescence. Your dentist customizes your veneers to match the color and contour of your natural teeth, then bonds the veneers to the surface of your teeth in an office procedure.
Veneers can change the shape, color, and size of your teeth for a more uniform appearance and a more attractive smile.
Dental veneers can correct a variety of common dental concerns, including:
For some adults, veneers can be an alternative to braces or Invisalign® treatments. Your cosmetic dentist at LA Dental Town can help you decide if veneers are the best option for transforming your smile.
Custom veneers typically take two dental appointments. First, your dentist carefully examines your teeth and explains the process to you. Then, your dentist removes a small portion of the enamel from the surface of the teeth that are getting veneers. This step allows for the veneer to fit perfectly over your natural tooth, taking up the same amount of space as the amount of enamel that’s removed.
Next, your dentist takes digital impressions of your teeth to be sent to a dental lab where the veneers are custom-made for your teeth. Once your new veneers are ready, you return to LA Dental Town for a second visit so that your dentist can bond each veneer directly to each tooth. Most of the time, you won’t need anesthesia as your dentist custom-shapes each veneer and applies it to your teeth.
Once the veneers are bonded to your teeth, you leave the office with a more beautiful smile. Veneers are a permanent part of your new and improved mouth. As long as you brush and floss your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene, your veneers will last for many years.
In addition to traditional veneers, LA Dental Town also offers the option of Lumineers®, an even thinner version of veneers. These require even less preparation and offer a painless installation procedure.
