When you're participating in today's fast-paced world of social media and the internet, feeling confident has never been more important. Studies have shown us that having a healthy, beautiful smile builds confidence, impacts other people, and achieves goals.

Since very few of us are born with perfect teeth, porcelain veneers are a dental treatment that can help you achieve the beautiful smile you've always wanted. If you've ever admired a "Hollywood" smile from your favorite actor or actress, they've likely enhanced their smile with porcelain veneers!

How Dental Veneers Work

Porcelain veneers are actually thin slivers of ceramic porcelain that our dentists design to fit perfectly over your natural teeth. They bond the veneers directly to your tooth for a smooth and seamless fit. Veneers cover your teeth and can change the shape, size, and shade of your smile, which allows you to design a more complementary asymmetric appearance. Veneers can repair a few teeth, but they are often best utilized in smile redesigns.

What Can Dental Veneers Fix?

Porcelain veneers in Van Nuys are ideal for covering cosmetic and restorative issues like:

  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Stains or discoloration
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Tooth size discrepancies
  • Slight misalignment issues
  • Spaces or gaps between teeth

When you choose porcelain veneers to restore your smile, you'll get to enjoy the restorative and aesthetic benefits they provide.

Getting Porcelain Veneers in Van Nuys

The process for completing porcelain veneers is relatively straightforward and typically requires two appointments. During the first visit, your dentist prepares your teeth for your veneers and places temporary veneers that you'll wear while your final restorations are handcrafted at a dental lab.

After two to three weeks, when your final veneers are ready, you'll return to The Dental Care Center and have your veneers permanently placed.

Porcelain Veneer Aftercare

Your veneers are easy to care for with regular brushing and flossing. In addition, routine dental checkups and teeth cleanings with your Van Nuys dentist every six months will help you protect the health and longevity of your veneers.
