The goal of the smile makeover is to take the smile that you are ashamed of showing to others, and to transform it into the smile you have always wanted. Veneers are so great at achieving this because of their versatility. Our Los Angeles smile makeover expert can use dental veneers to conceal stains, chips, cracks, and gaps. In some instances, veneers can even be used to correct teeth that are crooked.
The placement of veneers requires the removal of a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. The amount of enamel removed is roughly the size of the veneer itself, which is usually around 0.5 mm. Once the teeth are prepared, impressions are taken. These impressions are sent off to the lab where your veneers are designed. On your next visit, the veneers are bonded into place.
When porcelain veneers are used, it is hard for any outside observers to know that you have had them placed. The reason for this is because they so closely match the appearance of natural teeth. Part of the reason for this is because porcelain absorbs and reflects light much like our natural tooth enamel. And with proper maintenance, veneers are capable of lasting up to 20 years.
