Have you ever wished a cosmetic dentist could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as quick and easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers from Dr. Bill Dorfman DDS and Century City Aesthetic Dentistry in Los Angeles, it’s possible.
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently affixed to your natural teeth. Unlike with a crown procedure, no tooth structure has to be removed in order to place a veneer.
Veneers can be used alone or in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures in complete smile makeovers. Because they can fix cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes described as instant orthodontics.
Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be produced in any size or shape.
Are veneers strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, talk to us. We will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.
How long do veneers last?
Some smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look incredible!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.
