Some people are embarrassed by their teeth because of the flaws they have in them. These flaws may include cracks, chips, or stains that will not come out. Fortunately, our dentist at Rosemarie Quimson-Cruz, DMD, Inc in Los Angeles, CA, has many options for making your teeth look great again, including veneers. Our dentist in Los Angeles is an experienced dental practitioner who knows how to give our patients the right care and attention.
A veneer is an ultra-thin layer of material that fits over a tooth to give it a new look. The materials used to make dental veneers in Los Angeles, CA, are porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain is the most popular choice because they reflect light in the same manner that natural enamel does, so they look like enamel and make it almost impossible to tell veneers from natural teeth.
To get an accurate measurement for your veneers, our dentist at Rosemarie Quimson-Cruz, DMD, Inc, will use a grinding tool to remove some of the enamel from your teeth. During this procedure, your dentist may use sedation to keep you from being uncomfortable. Then, they will take an impression of your teeth to send to the lab to have the material you chose to cut to place on your teeth.
Once the material comes back from the lab, our dentist in 90027, Los Angeles, CA, will place it against the tooth and do the necessary trimming to fit precisely on each one. Then, they will use bonding cement to attach the porcelain or composite resin to each tooth and do the final trimming. After attaching the material, your teeth will look flawless once again.
To keep your teeth clean after a dentist near you installs your veneers, you will continue to brush and floss them as you usually would. Also, use an antiseptic mouthwash to keep your breath fresh and germs under control.
Even though they resist stains, our dentist at Rosemarie Quimson-Cruz, DMD, Inc in Los Angeles, CA, may recommend eating or drinking fewer foods and beverages known for staining, including:
