Dental Veneers: An Easy Way To Transform Your Smile

If you are unhappy with or feel embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth, dental veneers can be a fast and effective solution. Cosmetic dental veneers are a popular aesthetic treatment that can dramatically improve the look of your teeth and enhance your self-confidence. At Luzid Smiles in Whittier, CA, we offer dental veneers to our patients who want to transform their teeth and achieve a brighter, more beautiful smile. 

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of porcelain or other tooth-colored materials that are placed over the front of your teeth to enhance their appearance. They are designed to improve the color, shape, size, and length of specific teeth, as well as to cover any imperfections, such as chips, cracks, or stains. Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because they are minimally invasive and can dramatically improve the look of your teeth with little to no discomfort. In most cases, we pair sets of veneers together to create a seamless, uniform appearance across the front of your smile.

Types of Dental Veneers

There are two main types of dental veneers: porcelain veneers and composite veneers. Porcelain veneers are made of high-quality dental porcelain and are known for their durability, natural look, and stain resistance. Composite veneers are made of tooth-colored resin material and are ideal for addressing one or two specific teeth. Our cosmetic dentistry can help you determine the best type of veneer for your smile needs and personal goals. 

The Dental Veneer Procedure

The dental veneer procedure typically involves three appointments. During the first appointment, our dentist will examine your teeth, discuss your treatment goals, and take X-rays and impressions of your teeth. At the next visit, we will prepare your teeth for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel from the surface of your teeth. Then our dentist will select the shade of your permanent veneers to match the color of your natural teeth. You’ll play a key role in crafting the appearance of how you want your new veneers to look.

During the final visit, our cosmetic dentist will remove any temporary veneers and place your permanent veneers on your teeth using a special bonding agent. We will also make any necessary adjustments to ensure your veneers fit comfortably and look natural.

Benefits of Dental Veneers

Dental veneers offer a wide range of benefits, including:

Improved appearance: Dental veneers can dramatically improve the look of your teeth and enhance your smile.

Minimally invasive: Dental veneers are a minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry treatment that only involves one side of your tooth (unlike dental crowns, which cover the entire tooth.)

Stain resistance: Porcelain veneers are stain resistant and can maintain their natural color for many years.

Durability: Dental veneers are durable and can last for several years with proper care.

Versatility: Dental veneers can be used to correct a wide range of cosmetic dental issues, including chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and misshaped enamel.

Maintaining Your Dental Veneers

To maintain your dental veneers, it is important to practice good oral hygiene habits, such as brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting our dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. It is also important to avoid biting on hard objects, such as ice. We also recommend wearing a mouthguard if you play sports and sleeping in a nightguard to protect your veneers from damage.
