So, to help you know more, we are happy to provide the answers to commonly asked questions about dental veneers in Pasadena, California.
What are dental veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, porcelain shells that cover the front surfaces of your teeth and change their appearance. They are typically made in a dental lab and they are designed for your specific smile. For top-notch results, your dentist will bond the veneer to the tooth to help it last many years.
What can dental veneers do for me?
Dental veneers can give you the smile of your dreams. They can do this by hiding your tooth imperfections and giving you a chomper that enhances your appearance. With the help of dental veneers, you can have a boosted self-esteem and a natural-looking smile you are proud of.
What is the process of placing dental veneers?
The process of placing a dental veneer is simple. It begins with your dentist numbing the mouth with a local anesthetic. Next, he shaves a portion of the tooth enamel away to create room for the dental shell. When the tooth is the right size and shape, he will take impressions (3D dental models) of your smile and will send them to a dental lab. There, dental technicians will custom craft your veneer. When it’s ready, the technicians will send it to our office. Then, your dentist will bond it to the tooth to give you the smile you’re looking for.
