How a Century City, CA dentist can improve the smile with porcelain veneers
Dr. Meredith Levine of the Century City, CA community is a dental provider who is here to assist patients in finding solutions to improve their smiles. That includes offering cosmetic enhancements such as permanent veneers. These porcelain restorations are made to bond over the front of a tooth, changing its appearance and disguising common imperfections.
What is a cosmetic veneer?
Dental veneers are made of porcelain. They are extremely thin shells of tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom-fabrication to meet the patient’s needs. They are bonded to the front of a tooth, disguising common concerns for many of our patients. These restorations are:
- Natural-looking in appearance
- Appropriate for many of our patients
- Long-lasting and durable
- Easy to care for
What can a porcelain veneer cover?
Patients with imperfections in their smiles may be curious how these restorations can be used to achieve a more attractive look. Porcelain veneers can cover various problems, including:
- Unusually short or small teeth
- Severely stained teeth
- Misshapen or crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn/chipped/cracked teeth
- Misaligned teeth
What can I expect from my appointment?
Before moving forward with porcelain veneers, patients will need to schedule an appointment with Dr. Meredith Levine to consult with her and determine if porcelain veneers will meet their needs. Once patients have decided to move forward with one or more veneers in their smiles, they will then have their teeth prepared by removing a thin portion of the enamel. Impressions are taken, sent to a dental laboratory, and are used in creating the final restoration. Patients return for a second appointment to have their veneer (or veneers!) bonded in place.
