Teeth are one of the hardest parts of the human body, but over time, they can become damaged. You may have stains, chips, fractured enamel, or worn enamel. Your teeth may have been discolored by intrinsic factors such as medications or trauma. In some cases, you may have natural flaws, such as gaps or crooked teeth. Our Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village dental veneers dentist can help.
Dental veneers are a fast, highly effective way to change your smile. They are thin layers of porcelain that can be sculpted for a precise match to your teeth. These layers are bonded to the top of teeth to conceal flaws and create a bright, attractive new smile. Our Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village porcelain veneers dentist can help you decide if veneers are right for you.
Porcelain Dental Veneers Dentist Westlake Village
Candidates for veneers include patients who are unhappy with their smiles but who have healthy teeth and gums. In most cases, some preparation is required. Our dental veneers dentist in Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks will gently buff the enamel layer of your teeth to create more room for the veneers. The veneers are made based on a mold of your teeth. We will work closely with you to design your new smile exactly the way you want it, and a preview of your new smile can give you a peek at your new look before it is even done.
Once your teeth are prepared, your veneers can be crafted and then bonded to your teeth. We use a strong dental cement to secure the veneers into place. The porcelain of the veneers will not discolor even if you drink juice, eat berries, or indulge in other staining foods and drinks. Good brushing and flossing habits will help extend the life of your veneers. Be gentle with your teeth, and avoid opening packages, chewing fingernails, or other non-food items. You should also avoid grinding your teeth, which can also damage your new smile.
