Dental veneers are one of the most versatile restorations around. They can be used to cover up stains, chips, cracks, gaps, and misalignments in your teeth. And the best part is that veneers can be customized to meet your exact needs. The color and shape of veneers can be altered to match the surrounding teeth, so they will restore the appearance of your smile without standing out.
Once our cosmetic dentist in Agoura Hills has decided that you are a good candidate for the procedure, the treatment can begin. Placing veneers generally takes two visits to the expert in veneers in Agoura Hills. During the first visit, your teeth will need to be prepared. This involves removing about 0.5mm of enamel so that the veneers can be bonded in front. This removal is necessary to prevent the veneers from bulging past the other teeth. Impressions will be taken of the altered teeth, and your veneers will be designed in a lab. In the meantime, you can wear temporary veneers.
For the second appointment, your temporaries will be removed, and your permanent veneers will be put into place. The dentist will check to make sure they look and feel right and make any necessary alterations. After that, you are ready to show off your new smile to the world.
