Porcelain Veneers - Torrance, CA
Perfecting Smiles with Ease
Take a good look at your teeth in the mirror. Do you see a smile that completely satisfies you, or are there imperfections that you’d really like to remove? Depending on what you see, you might be thinking that correcting those flaws would require several different restorations and cosmetic treatments. Well, Dr. Hamzehpour and her team want you to think about porcelain veneers instead. With porcelain veneers, Torrance residents can have the perfect smile they’ve always wanted rather than the smile they happen to have.
Some Facts on Veneers
Porcelain veneers, also called dental veneers, are very thin layers of tooth-colored dental porcelain or composite resin that are adhesively bonded to the facial side of your upper and lower teeth. These dental wonders can be used to cover up a myriad of smile imperfections such as:
- Chipped teeth
- Teeth that are fractured or broken
- Irreversibly stained or discolored teeth
- Teeth that are slightly crooked
- Irregularly spaced teeth or teeth that have wide gaps between them
- Teeth that are worn because of bruxism or teeth grinding and clenching
- Misshaped teeth
- Teeth that are proportionally smaller than other teeth
While porcelain veneers are categorized as a cosmetic dental procedure, they often serve a preventive purpose, too, because they can protect damaged teeth from possibly needing a more extensive procedure in the future. Porcelain veneers from the cosmetic dentist Torrance turns to for many other types of smile-enhancing treatments are natural-looking and quite durable.
Receiving Porcelain Veneers
To find out if you are a qualified candidate for porcelain veneers, you’ll need to meet with Dr. Hamzehpour who will carefully examine your teeth and gums. If these are healthy, then you and she will begin planning your new smile. While the unique details of your mouth, jaw, and face will most heavily influence the design of your customized veneers, Dr. Hamzehpour will also be glad to consider the characteristics you wish your smile to have. Don’t hesitate to share your preferences for the color, size, and shape of your porcelain veneers. Ultimately, the goal of everyone here at Blue Coast Dental Group is to give you a smile that meets all of your expectations.
Receiving your veneers usually requires just two appointments. At the first, Dr. Hamzehpour will administer a local anesthetic so she can prepare your teeth; a minimal amount of enamel will need to be removed from your teeth so that your veneers lay flush and do not protrude or look unnatural. Once this step is completed, we’ll take an impression of your teeth in order to create a mold of your mouth. Our cosmetic dental lab will use this mold to fabricate your permanent veneers. While these are made, we’ll give you a set of temporary veneers to wear over your prepared teeth.
In a couple of weeks, your customized porcelain veneers will arrive at Blue Coast Dental Group. Dr. Hamzehpour will check each individual veneer for color, shape, and size. The temporaries will be removed and your permanent veneers will be cemented into place. Now, when you look in the mirror, you’ll see the perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
