Dental veneers are a dynamic way to update your smile without the time commitment and hardware of braces or Invisalign. Veneers address teeth that are stained, chipped, cracked, or oddly-spaced. As thin, translucent shields, veneers can disguise damage and fill in the uncomfortable gaps.
Remember, veneers are categorically cosmetic. Our expert in dental veneers in Northridge will not recommend them for you if you have significant orthodontic issues, such as malocclusion, jaw misalignment, or teeth that are severely impacted or rotated. These are dental problems that are best solved in other ways.
If you have teeth of normal size with a normal enamel level and no recurring gum diseases or bruxism, then veneers are a healthy, effective way to shore up your smile. You do not need invasive surgery that is required by implants, or an altered diet that is required by braces to smile with more confidence.
Our cosmetic dentist in Northridge will apply your veneers after first removing a tiny portion of enamel from the tooth or teeth. The veneers are then bonded to your teeth using a high-quality adhesive. With normal hygiene practices, your veneers could stay healthy and looking great for as long as 20 years.
