An economical solution to teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, or uneven may be more readily available that you realized. There may be multiple procedures to accomplish these improvements, but if there are time and budget constraints, you may find porcelain dental veneers to be the answer. These thin, yet sturdy, tooth coverings give a perfected, yet natural, look to renew your smile’s appearance.
The veneer process is simple, yet results can provide a patient with a great deal of satisfaction. At Downtown Dental, Dr. Don Mungcal offers a personalized consultation for each patient interested in aesthetic improvement with dental veneers. This appointment allows the patient to be evaluated, gives an opportunity to ask questions and provide input into the desired results, and to actually get a preview of what to expect once veneers are applied. The dentist will make an impression of the patient’s mouth that will be used to create a sample for the patient to assess the potential outcome. This is another step in the process when the patient can provide input and make changes to ensure an ideal outcome.
The next step in the veneer procedure is preparation of the patient’s teeth to provide a good bonding surface for the application of the veneers. Extremely thin layers of enamel will be painlessly removed to avoid a false look that is “too thick” once veneers are applied. While the veneers are being crafted to precise specifications, the patient will wear temporary veneers. Once the permanent ones are received, the patient will return for another office visit. Final details will be fine-tuned while the patient is in the office, the veneers will be permanently cemented in place, and the patient will leave with a renewed self-image from their dazzling smile makeover.
Don’t settle for less than the most beautiful you. Schedule an appointment, have your questions answered, and learn how simple it can be to improve your image. In Los Angeles and surrounding areas, for a completely satisfying experience that begins with the consultation and continues through the final application of the veneers, visit Downtown Dental.
