COSMETIC DENTAL VENEERS
If you have the desire for naturally beautiful perfect teeth, then you should consider porcelain dental veneers. Los Angeles Implant & Cosmetic Dentist Dr. David Schlang, uses this procedure to treat a variety of cosmetic and aesthetic issues.
Dental veneers can be used to treat deep unsightly stains, gaps in teeth, and even correct teeth that are slightly misaligned. Dental Veneers are commonly used in smile makeovers as the final touch in achieving a beautiful smile.
Porcelain Dental Veneers are ultra thin pieces of porcelain or ceramic, that are bonded to the front of teeth, to repair worn, broken, and chipped teeth.
CEREC dental veneers, are designed and fabricated using the CEREC digital imaging system by Dentsply Sirona. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Schlang uses this technology to create custom-designed porcelain veneers via CAD/Cam technology.
The first step in getting dental veneers, is a smile and bite analysis. This helps 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.
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 in-office Zoom Whitening, or take home tray whitening treatment, in order to achieve the optimal balance of color.
Facial Veneer : A very conservative veneer type when a minor color change is desired without changing the length of the tooth.
Incisal Shoulder : Used for color changes and adding length to worn teeth.
Lingual Wrap : This veneer type is necessary when closing spaces.
Super Veneer : This type of veneer is used for color and shape changes, as well as to lengthen and strengthen the tooth.
Minimal Prep Veneers : A type of veneer where only a small amount of the outer surface of the tooth needs to be shaved, and in some cases none at all.
