A beautiful smile may be just a few dental visits away. Porcelain veneers are a type of cosmetic restoration that can be placed right over your natural teeth to create a whole new look. Dr. Lozada, Los Angeles porcelain veneers dentist, can use porcelain veneers to cover flawed or damaged teeth or to give you a bright new look. We can help you decide if they are right for you.
Few restorations are as versatile as veneers. Veneers fit over the front surfaces of your teeth much like a contact lens fits over the eye, or an artificial nail fits over the natural nail. They are made of dental porcelain, which reflects light similarly to dental enamel, and can be made in the same colors found in natural teeth. The porcelain is made into wafer-thin shells about the thickness of a contact lens. Dr.Lozada, expert in porcelain veneers in Los Angeles, may recommend porcelain veneers, if you have:
• Healthy teeth and gums free of untreated dental disease
• Worn enamel
• Chipped, fractured, cracked, or broken teeth
• Crooked or gapped teeth
• Stained or discolored teeth
• Misshapen or otherwise unsightly teeth
At your initial consultation, Dr. Lozada, Los Angeles porcelain veneers dentist, will first ensure your candidacy for the procedure and then will work with you to design your smile. This process will include choosing the color, shape, size, and other features of your veneers. Your teeth will then need to be prepared. In most cases, most patients will only need minimal preparation. Once dental impressions are taken, the dental lab will be able to make the veneers, and when they are ready, they can be bonded to your teeth.
