Looking to improve your smile? Look no further than Top Los Angeles Reconstructive Dentist, Dr. Anthony Mobasser. Dr. Mobasser provides porcelain veneers as part of his reconstructive services.
Dental veneers are thin custom made shells that cover the front surface, and not the whole tooth to improve their appearance. They are made of tooth colored materials, such as porcelain and can be used to improve the color of teeth that have been worn down or stained. Alternatively, they can be used to improve the shape or size of the tooth.
Dr. Anthony Mobasser only uses the best in his Los Angeles office, which is why he opts for Porcelain Veneers. Porcelain veneers are more durable, and resist stains better than dental bonding procedure, or even your natural tooth. The properties of the material also help to create a very natural tooth look.
When should you consider dental veneers?
Talk to your dentist about dental veneers if your teeth:
- are stained or discolored
- are crooked or misshapen
- have spaces between them
- are broken or chipped
How it’s done
Two visits to your dentist are typically required for porcelain veneers. At your first visit, three important steps are completed. First, your teeth are prepared to be fitted with a veneer, which involves preparation of small portion of the tooth so the veneer can be bonded and the outcome is not bulky. Second, an impression is taken of your tooth to fabricate the permanent veneer by the ceramist. And third,is either desensetizing your tooth or placing a temporary veneer veneer. The temporary veneer will protect your tooth while the permanent veneer is being crafted.
During your second visit, the temporary veneer will be removed and your permanent veneer will be checked for fit and color. When you and Dr. Mobasser are satisfied with the look and feel of the permanent veneer, he will permanently bond it to your tooth. And you are done!
