Porcelain Veneer Procedures Los Angeles
Porcelain veneers can be used to cover up numerous dental imperfections such as discolored, chipped, cracked, broken, uneven, misaligned, and gapped teeth. The procedure for getting veneers is much less invasive than getting crowns or implants, so patients enjoy the minimal disruption veneers cause to their lives. But in order to get your veneers, most patients will need to see our Los Angeles porcelain veneers procedure expert three times.
First off, you will need to schedule a preliminary consultation with our expert in porcelain veneers procedure in Los Angeles. This meeting is to determine that you are a good candidate to receive veneers. Since a small amount of dental enamel will have to be removed, our dentist will check to make sure the affected teeth have sufficient enamel. This is also the time for you to ask our dentist any questions or voice any concerns you have about the treatment. X-rays may be taken so that our dentist can better plan out the process. Our dentist can also show you some porcelain veneers before and after photos so that you have an idea of the results you can expect to achieve.
Los Angeles Porcelain Veneer Procedures
During your second appointment, our Los Angeles porcelain veneers procedure expert will need to prepare the tooth or teeth to receive the veneers. We typically remove about 0.5mm of enamel so that the veneer will not bulge past the other teeth. You will be given a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the removal. An impression will be taken of your altered teeth so that the veneers can be custom-designed just for you. In some cases, the patient will be given a temporary veneer so that their teeth do not look trimmed between visits.
Once your veneers are finished, you will visit our expert in porcelain veneers procedure in Los Angeles one more time to have them adhered. Your temporaries will be taken off, and the permanent ones will be put into place. Our dentist will check to make sure they are the right color and shape, and we can make any minor alterations as needed. But if everything looks good, you will be able to walk out the office with your new smile.
