Learn Why You Need to Choose Porcelain for Veneers

As a Los Angeles dentist, I know that Hollywood sets a high standard for cosmetic dentistry, since everyone’s smile gets compared to the gleaming smiles of stars on the big and small screens. Fortunately, anyone can have a star-like smile makeover at an affordable cost, thanks to the porcelain revolution for veneers and inlays/onlays.

Veneers Los Angeles are thin cosmetic covers that are bonded to the front of a tooth to hide a fracture, chipping or discoloration, to help close a space between teeth or change their shape to something more attractive.

Inlays and onlays are for the biting surface of a tooth that has had a cavity removed and needs to be filled with more material than is normally used.

Porcelain is usually the best choice because it can be matched to your natural tooth color, it doesn’t cause an allergic reaction like some commonly used metals might, it protects the tooth better from decay than alternatives, and it is highly durable. As long as you take care of it according to instructions, you may have a porcelain veneer or inlay/only in place for many years.

The Los Angeles Dentist and cosmetic specialist team at Wilshire Smile Studio are committed to the highest quality of workmanship in porcelain veneers.

Create the Smile Your Deserve with Porcelain Dental Veneers

Your smile can make a great first impression, or it can leave you feeling self-conscious and embarrassed. What is your smile saying about you? If you have stained, chipped, worn or otherwise flawed and damaged teeth, our Los Angeles porcelain veneers expert can help.

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin sheets of porcelain that are custom-fitted to cover the fronts of your teeth. They are bonded with secure dental cement and can give you a bright, healthy-looking smile that can last 15 to 20 years or even longer. Our Los Angeles dental veneers expert can help you decide if veneers are right for you. Most people with good dental health and cosmetic flaws can benefit from veneers, but if you have gum disease, untreated tooth decay or other dental problems, dental veneers may need to wait until these conditions are treated and under control.

A gorgeous smile can give you a powerful self-esteem boost. When you feel self-conscious about your smile, you may try to hide it behind your hand, avoid speaking or eating in public and skip pictures. These habits can leave you feeling even worse. Our expert in dental veneers in Los Angeles can use dental veneers to completely transform the appearance of your smile in just a few dental visits.

At your first appointment, we will evaluate your smile and create a treatment plan. We can adjust not only the color but also the shape, size and alignment of your teeth. Dental records, including X-rays, impressions and digital images, may be taken to better create your treatment plan. Next, your teeth will be prepared. Most people will need only a small amount of dental enamel removed, which creates space for the veneers to be placed.

Once the veneers have been made, they will be bonded to your teeth. You can keep them looking just as beautiful as the day they were applied by brushing, flossing and visiting us regularly for cleanings and dental exams. If you grind your teeth, you will need to wear a mouth guard to protect not just your veneers but also your natural teeth.

Dental Veneers Dentist

Porcelain dental veneers are one of the most versatile cosmetic dental treatments. They can be used to transform chipped, discolored, crooked, worn or otherwise unsightly teeth. Our Los Angeles porcelain veneers dentist can help you determine if porcelain veneers are a good choice for your dental needs.

Many people hide their teeth when they smile, keep their lips tightly closed in pictures and avoid social situations that could involve public speaking, eating or other activities that could reveal their teeth. Teeth can be naturally misshapen or crooked, or the damage may have accumulated over the years. We can turn back the clock on your smile and use veneers to give you the smile of your dreams. Our Los Angeles dental veneers dentist can correct virtually any cosmetic defect with veneers, and you will never have to worry about stains and unattractive teeth again.

Porcelain is similar in appearance to your own natural teeth. It has a translucency that allows light to penetrate and then reflect just like healthy dental enamel does. It can be made to match your dental enamel or in a lighter color for a permanently bright white. Our porcelain veneers dentist in Los Angeles can often complete the procedure in just a few dental visits. We will take the time to understand your personal preferences and goals, and we can often provide a preview of how your new smile will look so that you can make last-minute changes and suggestions. We want you to be completely happy with your transformed smile and will work to ensure that we can make that happen.

If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, porcelain veneers may be an option for you. These thin porcelain shells fit comfortably over your own teeth and usually require only minimal preparation of your natural enamel. They can last 15 years or longer when properly maintained, and you need no special routines or lifestyle changes to keep them looking their best. Simply brush and floss as you always do.

I am writing to you to thank you for the beyond magnificent work you did in giving me a smile I can feel extremely proud in showing it off to the world! I cant sufficiently express how grateful I am to you for what you have done for my confidence level and my quality of life. After walking around for fifteen years trying not to show my teeth when I smile or laugh, I now smile big and wide, as I love how my teeth now are. That is a fantastic feeling; one I never thought I would feel again!.

testimonial 6

I’m 52 and I was really starting to feel like an old frumpy housewife when I looked at my teeth in the mirror even though I am far from old or frumpy. It’s just my teeth looked old, dull, and worn out. My teeth needed a serious make-over. I just can’t express enough what a wonderful job Dr. Twersky did on my smile make-over! I look like a Hollywood celebrity now! Even better is, I look years younger with my nice new perfect fresh smile!.

testimonial 5

About a year ago, my two front teeth broke from a collision with another player during a soccer match. I had visited a dentist and he fixed the teeth with a tooth colored filling. After awhile, I noticed the filling started chipping away and it didn’t match my tooth anymore. I hated how my front teeth looked. My once nice smile was gone. Then I went to Dr. Twersky. He recommended placing porcelain veneers on my two front teeth. Wow! What a difference the veneers made. It was certainly money well spent. Thanks again Dr. Twersky!.

testimonial 4

I was always self-conscious about my smile. I had far from perfect teeth. I always took good care of them, but I just hated my smile. Both of my canines were jagged and ugly and I felt like everyone was looking at them when I smiled. I also didn’t like the space between my teeth either. It wasn’t like I didn’t need to floss because the gap was so wide that nothing would ever get stuck between my teeth, but the spaces were too wide for my liking. I just want Dr. Twersky to know how much I appreciate the work he did and how thrilled I am that the veneers he placed gave me the smile I wanted. I smile with pride now instead of trying to hide my once ugly teeth!.

testimonial 3

I’m 22, but my teeth made me look like I was 32. I hated how they looked. They were stained and just dull. I was spending so much money on teeth whitening kits because after a few weeks, my teeth were looking stained and dull again. Thank you Dr. Twersky for my nice shiny new veneers! My teeth are more beautiful than they ever were and I don’t look old anymore!.

testimonial 2

I was a pack a day smoker for 20 years and have been smoke free for 8 months. My wife always hated how dingy and gross my teeth looked from the tobacco stains. How my teeth looked bothered me too, but not nearly as much as it bothered my wife. I gave in and tried bleaching my teeth. What a headache and disaster that was. My teeth were just a lighter shade of yellow, not white like you see on the commercials. Then, I found Dr. Twersky. No more dingy yellow stained teeth for me. I like my veneers, but more importantly, my wife likes how my teeth look and has stopped nagging me about them! Thank Dr. Twersky!.
