Ceramic Veneers

Ceramic Veneers in Woodland Hills

Veneers are very thin ceramic​ laminates of porcelain designed to cover the front surfaces of your teeth. They are bonded to your​ teeth creating a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and will someday have to be replaced. They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

Reasons for ceramic veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
  • Crooked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or large
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces
  • Worn or chipped teeth

Ceramic veneer procedure:

Ceramic Veneers usually involve two visits, requiring little or no anesthesia throughout the procedure. Your​ ​teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade is chosen.

On the second visit your​ teeth will be cleansed to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between your ​tooth and veneer and a special light is used to harden and set the bond.

You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
