When patients visit our office, they are often looking for the simplest solutions to their dental issues. It’s no secret that nobody wants to spend hours in the dentist’s chair, as well as their time and money that could be going toward something a bit more fun. Unfortunately, there aren’t usually simple and quick solutions to a lot of dental problems. However, those with cosmetic-only flaws in their smile might be in luck.
Dental veneers are a risk-free, easy way to cover a wide variety of cosmetic flaws and perfect the smile. They are thin shells usually made from porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of the teeth, creating the appearance of a uniform, flaw-free smile. Dental veneers can effectively cover:
• Crooked teeth
• Stained and discolored teeth
• Gaps and crowding
• Small and misshapen teeth
• Chips and cracks
Our expert in veneers in Beverly Hills begins the process of bonding the shells to the teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. This is so the teeth do not appear too big or irregular when the veneer is placed. Because a certain amount of enamel must be removed, the veneers must stay on, as the teeth would not be strong enough. Fortunately, if cleaned and cared for properly, your veneers should last for at least fifteen years, after which time they can be replaced.
