Porcelain veneers are an incredibly popular cosmetic dental treatment among patients in the Century City, California area who visit Dr. Meredith Levine, DDS, Inc. If you are looking for natural-looking veneers, there are some questions you should ask before you begin the process. Dr. Levine will be happy to talk to you about the veneer process and answer any questions you may have. Below are some questions you may consider asking your dentist before getting veneers.
- While this may seem like obvious advice, before you ever get the veneer treatment process started, ask what the final veneers will look like. Many patients never think about seeing what the final results will look like, either because they do not realize they can or because they never think about it. Getting the best possible veneers takes careful planning, and part of that planning should be being able to visualize the final product. Tell your dental professional exactly how you want your veneers to look so that a model can be fabricated that displays the final design. This will help you avoid any surprises which could come if you are seeing the veneers for the first time on the day they are being placed
- If your teeth need whitening, you should consider having this completed before getting veneers. Once your porcelain veneers are cemented onto your teeth, they will not be able to be whitened. This is because porcelain does not respond well to whitening or bleaching treatments. When you get your veneers, they will be crafted to match the color of your natural teeth, so making sure they are white before the veneer treatment ensures that you have a smile full of pearly white teeth.
- When getting porcelain veneers, inquire about what type of porcelain will be used and the lab where they will be crafted. A few kinds of porcelain get used for crafting veneers, and they all have pros and cons. Knowing as much as you can about what is going into your mouth will never be a wrong decision!
