Porcelain Veneers Long Beach, CA

Does your smile make you frown? If so, porcelain veneers can make that massive change in your teeth’s appearance to bring your smile back. Porcelain veneers are an easy fix for most mouths, and once implanted give you a perfect grin immediately. By choosing veneers, you can have a brighter and straighter smile without the wait.

How are Porcelain Veneers Installed?

During the procedure, our experienced team will start by removing enamel from your teeth. Then, a custom porcelain veneer is created to fit your tooth. It is then bonded into place, instantly making your teeth straighter, and brighter.

Can Porcelain Veneers Strengthen Your Smile?

Yes! In many cases, and depending on the type of porcelain used, veneers can actually make your teeth stronger. Pressed porcelain is the strongest type as added material can increase the strength of your teeth. With veneers, your teeth are less prone to break.

Do I Need More Than One Veneer?

The amount of veneers required depends on the structure of your teeth, as well as the result you want to achieve. For instance, if a single tooth is damaged, at Dentist of Long Beach, we will most likely choose to install one veneer. Veneers can also help to close a small gap between teeth. If you want that instant smile makeover, the Hollywood Smile Makeover can give you the winning grin you’re looking for.

Are Veneers Permanent?

Veneers are permanently affixed to your teeth and are considered permanent. However, damage due to trauma can sometimes cause a veneer to come off, so it’s best to talk to your dentist about how you can avoid this. Veneers don’t last forever but do last for 10 to 20 years when properly taken care of.

Is There Anything to Avoid After Getting Veneers?

Although porcelain is relatively strong, it is also very thin. Because of this, adding too much force to a veneer can sometimes cause them to break or separate from your teeth. To avoid these issues, make sure to not:

  • Use your teeth as tools
  • Chew on anything that isn’t food
  • Bite your nails
  • Eat very hard foods

Can I Afford Veneers?

If you want to achieve the look of veneers but save on expense, composite bonding, or chairside veneers, might be right for you. Composite veneers will help your smile look amazing, while remaining affordable. However, composite bonding veneers do not last as long as porcelain, and will need to be replaced over time.Talk to your insurance provider about what kinds of dental procedures are covered.
