Rejuvenate Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
You dream about a Hollywood smile. Can you achieve it? At Hillside Dentistry & Orthodontics, many adults rejuvenate their smiles with porcelain veneers. Custom-designed by our Torrance, CA, dentists, these ultra-thin ceramic shells disguise defects, improve color and correct mild alignment problems. This cosmetic dentistry service could be your solution.
Made just for you
After our Torrance, CA dentist examines your teeth and gums and discusses your smile goals, your veneer treatment can begin. Oral impressions, a negative imprint of your teeth and gums, help your dentist formulate your care plan.
Then, the doctor removes a thin section of enamel to bond the veneers to the front side of your teeth. The American College of Prosthodontists states that most patients benefit from an even number of veneers--two, four or six, for example--to create a balanced look.
Veneers are thin, translucent and shaped to blend with the rest of your smile. They correct numerous flaws such as:
- Stubborn enamel stains from cigarettes, prescription medications and more
- Bumps, pits and craze lines
- Short tooth length or irregular shape
- Spaces, gaps, overlapping and crowding
Additionally, because our expert and highly skilled dentist places your veneers, you'll experience little to no gum irritation. In just two visits to Hillside Dentistry & Orthodontics, you'll leave with a beautiful smile that lasts for years.
Caring for porcelain veneers
Don't worry. Adding veneers to your smile won't wreck your oral hygiene routines. Brush twice a day for two minutes as the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends and floss around each tooth to remove plaque and prevent tartar. See your dentist semi-annually for a cleaning and examination.
In addition, watch what you eat and drink. Porcelain veneers are both stain-resistant and durable. However, deeply-colored beverages and foods can darken the bright finish. Also, while veneers easily withstand normal biting and chewing, don't nibble on your pencil or tear packages open with your teeth. If you do, you could damage your new smile.
