Porcelain Dental Veneers are ultra thin pieces of porcelain or ceramic, that are bonded to the front of teeth, to repair broken or chipped and worn teeth. Los Angeles cosmetic dentist Dr David Schlang, uses this procedure to treat a variety of aesthetic and functional issues. Dental veneers can also be used to treat deep unsightly stains, gaps in teeth, and even correct teeth that are slightly misaligned. Porcelain Dental Veneers are commonly used in smile makeovers as the final touch in achieving a beautiful smile.
The first step in getting dental veneers, is a smile and bite analysis, to determine if the patient is a candidate for veneers, and also to determine what type of veneer is best suited for the individuals particular needs. In some cases it is helpful to do a mock-up first, and do a try-in via an overlay process.
For some patients, “Minimal Prep Veneers” are an option. They require only a small amount of the outer surface of the tooth to be removed, and in some cases none at all.
When severe crowding is present, it may be preferable to first move the teeth using Invisalign to create balance in the positioning and minimize shaving of the teeth. In most cases, it is advantageous to first whiten the teeth using Zoom Whitening Treatment in order to achieve the optimal balance of color.
