Restoring the smile can be done without having to incur extensive costs. Dr. Mamta Dalwani of Los Angeles, CA proudly offers porcelain veneers for patients seeking an alternative solution to problems such as a tooth gap, fractured teeth, misaligned teeth, unusually shaped teeth, or teeth that are permanently stained.
Veneers are facings made of porcelain that are bonded to the front of flawed teeth. Veneers are a wonderful option for patients who are seeking an alternative to more extensive procedures such as orthodontics or tooth replacement.
Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile. Patients can enjoy a completely rejuvenated smile within weeks with porcelain veneers that are fabricated at a dental laboratory. The preparation for veneers is simple with the removal of a thin portion of enamel from the visible portion of the anterior tooth. Molds are taken and used to create the veneers, which are later bonded in place. With proper care, veneers can last over a decade. They are stain resistant, durable, and are often used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments when patients are considering full smile reconstruction. Veneers are best used on the teeth near the front of the mouth, while patients who need to repair teeth near the back, such as the molars, may be better suited for restorations such as porcelain crowns which cover more of the tooth’s structure.
