People are rarely born with perfect teeth, and everyday life can take its toll on dental enamel, leaving teeth stained or damaged.
Cosmetic dentistry with porcelain veneers, however, helps to dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile. Veneers, thin slices of tooth-colored porcelain, help to effectively conceal flaws and help teeth look uniform and attractive. At Studio City Dental Group, our porcelain veneers help patients achieve their goals for their dream smiles.
Porcelain veneers are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Veneers are ideal for individuals who have had minor to moderate cosmetic dental problems that are detracting from the overall appearance of their smiles.
These issues most commonly include deep staining, worn-down or misshapen teeth, small gaps between teeth, and cracked or chipped teeth. Veneers help patients to achieve their desired look without lengthy treatment times or with additional, secondary procedures, such as orthodontics. Veneers help teeth look healthy and white and preserve more of your natural dental enamel than a crown. Veneers from our Studio City dental office are perfect for cosmetic smile rehabilitations to correct a multitude of flaws on teeth.
Our cosmetic dental team helps patients renew their smiles with porcelain veneer therapy. At your first appointment, your smile will be evaluated to determine the right number of veneers to best serve your ultimate goals.
Teeth to be treated are then prepared by buffing a minimal amount of natural dental enamel. To create veneers that fit perfectly and look natural, impressions are taken of your smile and sent to our on-site dental lab. During your second visit to our office, your veneers will be permanently bonded in place. The entire process only takes two visits on average and the end result is a comprehensively more attractive smile.
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer.
A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist. On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond. You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
While most dental offices have to send patient impressions to an outside dental lab so that veneers can be created by a third-party technician, Studio City has our own dental lab that we utilize to create veneers in-house.
Our lab’s master ceramist provides for perfect shade matching that creates stunning results with veneers. Veneer therapy at our North Hollywood dental office is truly efficient. Your veneers come out the right color the first time. In the event that any adjustments need to be made, creating the right results doesn’t require sending work back to an outside laboratory. Our ceramist and dentists work in close conjunction to provide best possible results for our veneer patients
