Custom made Dental Veneers for patients in Rosemead, CA
Are you hiding your smile because of gaps, discolored, uneven, cracked, or worn down teeth? Does your self-esteem suffer because you think people are judging you by your smile? You no longer have to hide your smile.
Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry offers patients in Rosemead, CA, and the surrounding areas the option of dental veneers to improve the appearance of their smile quickly.
Veneers are incredibly thin, custom-made strips of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your natural teeth. Because each set of veneers is made uniquely, you will have the opportunity to provide input regarding the shape and color of the veneers. The results will be as unique as you are.
Other advantages of porcelain veneers include:
Less stress on the surrounding teeth – Other dental procedures, like crowns, require that the original teeth or surrounding teeth be filed or extensively shaped. Veneers are so thin that they do not require much preparation of the teeth.
Durability – Veneers are very thin strips of porcelain. However, once they are bonded to your teeth they will have the same strength and durability as your original teeth, giving you the ability to eat your favorite foods and speak clearly.
Fast and easy application – Making and applying veneers usually requires two trips to the dentist’s office. Your mouth will be properly numbed prior to reducing the enamel slightly so that you don’t feel a thing. You may notice a little bit of sensitivity after the teeth have been prepared, but it is temporary and can be relieved with over-the-counter medications.
Simple after care – Once applied, you take care of your veneers using typical oral hygiene practices. Brushing and flossing keep the veneers healthy, clean, and functioning correctly. Patients should take care to avoid bad habits that would cause staining or breaking such as smoking, drinking dark beverages, biting on items such as ice or pens, and using your teeth to open packaging. With the right care and oral hygiene, veneers can remain strong for many years.
