At first glance, “porcelain veneers” sound like something you put into your home, like they’re an expensive home décor item. “We got all new venetian blinds and veneers made of porcelain” sounds like something a person might say when showing off their home renovations to a guest. However, these veneers are actually a great way to give yourself the smile that you’ve always wanted. In this blog, we’ll talk about some of the benefits to these veneers as well as some of the other parts of them to keep in mind.
Porcelain Veneers Explained
These veneers are small pieces of porcelain and other materials that are placed in your mouth. To be clear, Dr. Mobasser almost invariably leans towards doing a less invasive procedure whenever possible. There are many less invasive procedures than placing these veneers. However, sometimes these veneers are what is required to give you the smile that you’ve always wanted. Dr. Mobasser or a member of his staff will make that determination when you come in to visit us.
There are many cosmetic dentists in Beverly Hills or the surrounding area who say that they have experience placing veneers on customers, but rarely do they have anything approaching Dr. Mobasser’s experience. Indeed, he has place 10,000 veneers in customers’ mouths over the last thirty years. To see the success of his business, one need only look at the many, many Google reviews from his customers. To see the success of these veneers even more clearly, you could even look at the color of people’s teeth in the pictures attached to the reviews.
These Veneers vs. Lumineers
While it may sound like something called “Lumineers” are a brighter option than these veneers, that is not the case. Indeed, Lumineers are a more conservative option than the veneers. Think of it this way: when you only need a little bit of help to get the smile that you’ve been dreaming about, then Lumineers are the way to go. When it takes a bit more work, or you want a solution that will stand the test of time, them veneers are the correct answer.
Veneers can do so much more for your teeth than the Lumineers will, should you need it. For example, veneers will give you teeth that are much more natural in color. They won’t be so “blindingly” white. Instead, they’ll just look like a better version of the teeth that you’ve always had. Moreover, they’ll also be far gentler on your gum tissue, as well. While Lumineers are less invasive in general than veneers, they can also be far harsher on your gum tissue than veneers ever could.
Things to Keep in Mind about Veneers
While veneers have quite a bit to recommend about them, there are some things to keep in mind. For example, placing veneers does require altering your tooth structure. This is not a decision to be made lightly. If you’re ready for that kind of radical, lasting change, then veneers can be the way to go. On top of that, veneers are not the least expensive option in the world. Indeed, veneers can cost anywhere between one thousand to two thousand dollars.
What is great about veneers is that you can choose how many veneers you want as well as where they should go. Indeed, Dr. Mobasser customizes his veneer packaging to exactly what his clients are looking for. For example, if you only are one tooth away from having your most radiant, megawatt smile, a single tooth veneer could be exactly what you’re looking for. Of course, for many, it takes more than that for the right smile makeover.
Four front teeth veneer packages are quite common. Some folks want to have all of their teeth look right, regardless of where they appear in the mouth. That’s where the “full mouth veneers” come in. That way, you won’t have to worry about how your teeth look for some time. Your teeth will look amazing, whether you’re smiling or not. One of our most popular choices for veneers is called the “Smile Line Veneer.” That means you get veneers on the teeth that appear in your smile. These tend to be about ten teeth.
