Veneers in Whittier at Advanced Dental Center
If you are hiding your smile due to dental imperfections, you may benefit from the attractive, minimally-invasive option of porcelain veneers. At Advanced Dental Center, Dr. Aziz recommends these discreet yet durable restorations for their ability to emulate natural dentition while providing long-lasting results.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
Severely discolored or stained teeth.
Teeth that are too small or large.
Unwanted or uneven spaces.
Worn or chipped teeth.
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
In keeping with Advanced Dental Center’s goal to preserve the oral health of our patients, the process of getting porcelain veneers is uncomplicated and does not significantly impact underlying dental health and composition. To accommodate for the additional thickness of a veneer, your teeth will be moderately prepared prior to placement. An impression, or mold, of your teeth is also taken so that your veneers are fabricated to the specific dimensions of your smile. At this time, Dr. Aziz will work with you to decide on the right color for your veneers.
At the placement appointment, your teeth will first be cleansed with special, professional-grade liquids to ensure your veneer is optimally bonded. Dental bonding cement is used when applying the veneer, hardened and set by use of a specialized light.
After the procedure, you will receive care instructions, including recommendations for your daily brushing and flossing routine. Regular follow-up visits with Dr. Aziz are also recommended to enhance the longevity of your porcelain veneers. At these visits to our Whittier dental practice, your restorations can be assessed for replacement due to normal wear.
