Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile treatment options available in cosmetic dentistry. Our El Monte dental veneers expert can use dental veneers to correct many different aesthetic issues, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Worn enamel
- Fractured teeth
- Small or misshapen teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Gapped teeth
Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the visible part of your teeth. Our El Monte porcelain veneers expert may recommend porcelain veneers on their own or use them in tandem with other treatments as a part of a smile makeover. Traditional porcelain veneers may require three dental visits. During these visits, our expert in dental veneers in El Monte will design your treatment plan, prepare your teeth, place temporary veneers to protect your teeth, evaluate your new veneers for fit and appearance and bond your veneers to your teeth.
Porcelain Dental Veneers El Monte
Your natural teeth are prone to staining, but porcelain veneers are durable and stain resistant. You can enjoy all your favorite foods and drinks without fear of discoloration. Dental veneers are also strong, but the teeth below them may still be vulnerable to decay. Maintain your veneers and your teeth with good dental hygiene habits. Brush your teeth after meals with fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush, floss every day and visit our dentist as recommended for checkups and cleanings.
Although veneers are long lasting and can perfect your smile for more than a decade, you can keep them looking their best longer by avoiding extremely hard or sticky foods. If you drink alcohol heavily, you may need to cut back to reduce the risk of damaging the bonding cement. Do not use your teeth as tools to open packages, and avoid biting your nails or other hard objects.
When you visit our expert in porcelain veneers in El Monte, we will walk you through each stage of the veneers process and customize the smile that is right for you. You can even help design your new smile to ensure it is completely flattering and satisfactory.
