Dental veneers are an increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry treatment for residents of Downtown Los Angeles who want to improve the appearance of their smiles. Veneers are used to cover stained, worn down, misshaped, cracked, or chipped teeth. Getting veneers placed will mean several trips to the dentist office, however, it’s worth it for a more beautiful smile.
Veneers are one of many cosmetic treatment options offered by Dr. Don Mungcal of Downtown Dental. Veneers offer several advantages for patients who want to improve their smiles. For example, other treatments, such as crowns and bridges, require the surrounding teeth to be filed to allow room for the restoration. With veneers, minimal shaping is needed, resulting in a stronger and more natural looking option for patients who only need cosmetic adjustments. In fact, the look of veneers, when applied by a skilled and experienced dentist, is so natural that no one will ever have to know that you have them.
Porcelain veneers are usually tolerated well gum tissue and are comfortable and barely noticed by the patient. Additionally, because veneers can be created to perfectly match your existing teeth, or brighten up your smile a bit, they look just like natural teeth. Each set of veneers is created uniquely for the patient. Once applied, the veneer is strong and secure. Your teeth will function just like before, allowing you to speak clearly and eat normally.
Finally, porcelain veneers do not require special care. Simply brush, floss, and keep up with regular checkups to keep veneers looking great. To protect your veneers, you’ll want to avoid habits such as smoking or biting on hard items like pens, sourdough pretzels, or ice.
