Have you ever wondered about porcelain veneers? Do you know where to go to learn more and to have your questions answered? The answer is available in the Los Angeles area from Dr. Don Mungcal and the quality practice of Downtown Dental.
Porcelain veneers are intended as a cosmetic solution for many aesthetic dental concerns. They do not resolve any oral health issue, but can certainly increase self-esteem and eliminate image-related smile concerns for a patient. Veneers may be chosen by a patient as a cost-effective solution for issues that would otherwise require complex or costly procedures to repair. They may also provide a temporary fix while deciding which other route to take, or to feel confident with one’s smile while spreading out other treatments over time. They are, however, a relatively quick and simple answer to achieve a Hollywood smile makeover, whatever the situation.
With just a few simple steps, Dr. Mungcal and his attentive staff can help a patient achieve a beautiful smile makeover. A consultation appointment will allow a professional assessment of a patient’s dental health and cosmetic concerns. This is the time for the patient and dentist together to decide on appropriate treatment, and to establish specific goals. A wax mock-up will be made so that the patient can more clearly visualize the potential result. Dr. Mungcal is proficient in fine-tuning the specifics of veneers to give a patient a perfected, yet natural-looking appearance. A patient will be asked for input into things such as shape, size, and color, so that they will be more than pleased with the outcome.
Only minimal preparation is required to provide a patient with porcelain dental veneers. It is a comfortable and painless process that only impacts the surface of teeth that will be covered with the wafer-thin shells. After removing a very thin layer of enamel, impressions are taken of the patient’s mouth. These will be used to create precise veneers for the patient. The patient will be fitted with temporary veneers to give them normal appearance and function. Once the permanent veneers are received, the patient will return to the office to have them bonded into place and to finish off every little detail. A perfect, smile-worthy finish is now ready to be shared with the world.
