One of the most popular cosmetic dental treatment options we offer at Exquisite Dentistry is porcelain dental veneers. Veneers are a versatile cosmetic treatment that can be used to address various cosmetic imperfections, including chipped, crooked, and discolored teeth. Veneers may include dental crowns as part of a complete smile makeover or smile design.
In as few as three visits, Exquisite Dentistry can evaluate your smile, take digital impressions of your bite, and fit you with gorgeous porcelain veneers or crowns to enhance the natural beauty of your smile.
Why Choose Dental Veneers?
A veneer is a thin piece of tooth replacement material made of either porcelain or a composite material that is placed over the front of teeth to improve their appearance. At Exquisite Dentistry’s Los Angeles office, our dental veneers are made of the highest quality porcelain in order to create the most natural-looking and beautiful results.
Porcelain veneers are used for a variety of reasons. If a crown is not necessary, porcelain veneers can be used to conceal chipped, strangely shaped, crooked or discolored teeth. Veneers can be also be used to improve the uniformity of teeth instead of braces, or to close the gaps between teeth.
Dental Veneer Treatment Details
The veneer process often takes several visits, depending on the scope of the treatment required.
The first step is to have a dental consultation with Dr. Aguil to evaluate your oral health and discuss your needs and goals. If your dentist thinks a veneer is the best option for your teeth, then we will take digital impressions, which will be sent to a professional ceramist to create a model of what your unique dental veneers will look like.
We use the premier lab on the West Coast where Dr. Aguil and his ceramist co-create the ideal look and feel of natural teeth and design the smile you’ve always dreamed of having!
During your next visit, pain-free local anesthesia is required for the veneer preparation process since a small portion of the tooth is buffed off. This will allow your dentist to match the veneer to the natural color and shape of the surrounding teeth. We use the thinnest porcelain veneer material to minimize the reduction of the natural tooth. Your dentist will place temporary restorations until the final veneers are completed.
During this time, you’ll be examining the look, feel and function of these veneers. Modifications can be made during this time to make certain the final veneers are exactly what you want.
When the porcelain veneers are ready, the dentist will test it on your tooth to make sure the shape fits correctly and the color is perfect. The color of the tooth can be modified to match the surrounding teeth. After you and Dr. Aguil are happy with the color, shape and new look of your smile, the porcelain veneer is permanently bonded in place.
Taking Care of Your Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are quite easy to take care of. A normal routine of proper brushing and flossing, along with regular checkups with your dentist, is generally all that is required. Because some enamel has been removed, there may be some sensitivity in your teeth to hot and cold temperatures. This sensitivity will disappear over time. Special toothpastes are available to treat this sensitivity during the transition, which our dentist can recommend.
Your new dental veneers will be very durable but not quite as strong as natural teeth, so care (e.g., avoid biting down on hard objects) should be taken to give your new smile the longest life possible.
