How Veneers Could Fix Your Smile
Discover more about dental veneers and how they could help you.
How often do you notice someone’s smile before you notice anything else? It’s not uncommon for this to be one of the first features we notice about a person. Keeping that in mind, it’s important that you have a smile that looks as great as you feel. A beautiful smile instills confidence. If you aren’t confident in your smile our Torrance, CA, cosmetic dentists are here to tell you how dental veneers could help.
How do dental veneers work?
Veneers are custom-made restorations designed to cover the entire front surface of your teeth. These restorations are very thin and are even matched to the shade of your teeth to blend in. Since veneers are often made from porcelain, no one will be able to tell you have veneers but you.
How are veneers placed?
Once our Torrance, CA, dentists have examined your smile and determined that not only are your teeth healthy and strong enough for this treatment but that your smile is also free of decay, then we will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the front of your teeth.
Next, impressions are taken of the teeth that will be treated with veneers. Our trusted dental lab will use these impressions we take to create your beautiful new veneers. In the meantime, we may decide to place temporary veneers over your teeth to protect them.
It usually takes up to one week to get your new veneers sent to us. Once this happens you’ll come back into our office for a fitting. Once we know you are happy with your restoration we will apply bonding cement between your veneer and your tooth and then use a dental light to harden the cement. We will also polish the veneers once they are bonded to ensure that they offer a natural and beautiful shine.
