There are many ways to brighten, whiten, and otherwise dramatically improve your smile. Porcelain veneers, however are increasingly becoming one of the most popular solutions for people with teeth that need more elaborate measures to look their best.
Stained teeth and a chipped, worn smile can be caused by everything from accidents and tooth decay, to the heavy consumption of coffee, tea, and other dark colored beverages. While teeth whitening can often be quite effective for a certain amount of staining and discoloration, there are limits to its effectiveness. As the name implies, porcelain veneers go over your teeth to create a smile that is straight, clean, and bright. They are custom made, extremely thin, and cover the entire visible surface of a tooth.
Obtaining Porcelain Veneers
The process typically begins with a visit to Smile Boutique Beverly Hills for a consultation with a dentist. Once it’s been determined that the teeth in question will benefit from veneers and the patient decides to get them, the next step is for the dentist to remove a very small part of the enamel, about half of a millimeter, around the tooth. (A local anesthetic may be desirable.)
The next steps are to bond a veneer to the tooth. During that process, the dentist will make a number of adjustments to make the enamels look as natural and attractive as possible. Once completed, the vast majority of patients are delighted with the outcome, which really can transform the dingiest grin into a genuinely beautiful smile.
