Additional Information on Porcelain Veneers In West Covina, CA

A whole new world is possible when you repair and brighten up your smile with custom-made veneers. The West Covina Dentist can help you get the smile you desire. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Duncan G Howard DDS at our West Covina, CA dental office to receive personalized recommendations and a custom treatment plan. Read on to find out more about this cosmetic treatment, including its benefits and what the appointment for veneers entails.

A Miracle Smile with Veneers

Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells, typically made from porcelain, that are designed to cover the entire front surface of a tooth to alter its appearance. Veneers provide a simple, minimally invasive way to alter your smile for the long term. Luckily, tooth preparation is also minimal.

Even though traditional veneers are thin, they would be a bit too bulky if they were immediately applied to your teeth. Your West Covina, CA dentist will need to prep your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface of your teeth. The veneers are then bonded over your natural teeth where they can stay for decades. Some people have kept their veneers for 20 or more years.

It doesn’t matter if your front teeth are too small, darkly discolored, chipped, or broken. Veneers can make them all look the same—white, smooth, healthy, and evenly shaped. You might feel like some kind of miracle has been performed when you look at your smile after your treatment is finished.

More Benefits Of Getting Veneers

When your goal is to have a “Hollywood” smile, your dentist will most likely recommend porcelain veneers. There are plenty of benefits to consider when making this important decision about your teeth:

  • Veneers can protect your teeth from future damage and staining.
  • Veneers and the bonding dental cement are color-matched to look natural with the rest of your smile.
  • With veneers, only a small amount of enamel will be removed from each tooth (none in some cases).
  • Your self-confidence and self-esteem increases after your smile has been enhanced with veneers.

A Relatively Simple Cosmetic Treatment

Compared to getting braces, which could take years to give you acceptable results, veneers are a relatively quick and simple way to improve your smile. If you have an urgent upcoming affair, there’s a good chance that your treatment will be completed in time. One appointment is set with Dr. Howard to prepare the tooth and take an impression, and another is required to perform the bonding procedure. Expect the treatment to be completed in a few weeks.

Limitations of Porcelain Veneers

There are some situations in which veneers would be inappropriate. For example, if you have teeth with large gaps between them or significant alignment issues, orthodontics would be a better solution for correction than veneers. If you have lost a lot of tooth structure from decay, trauma, or a severe grinding habit, restoring your teeth with porcelain crowns that cover the entire tooth might be more efficient. Dr. Howard, your dentist in West Covina, CA, will recommend the best course of treatment to get your desired results based on your particular situation.

Veneers transform chipped, worn, or broken teeth into smooth, healthy teeth. Get the smile you desire without a long wait! Call The West Covina Dentist today at (626) 962-3559 to schedule a veneers consultation with Dr. Howard at our West Covina, CA office.

Our Process

If you are looking for a smile makeover everything starts with a consultation. During your consult we will discuss what the goals are with your smile. Our team of experts will guide you through the design process by asking specific questions so that we fully understand what your dream smile looks like.

In your next visit we will take a mold of your mouth and start working on redesigning your smile. Once the porcelain has been fabricated by the lab, additional appointments will be set up to complete the smile makeover process. The number of appointments can vary depending on how many veneers you are getting.

FAQ:

Will my teeth have to be shaved down into little pegs?

Contrary to popular belief porcelain veneers only require a small reduction in tooth structure because they are less than 0.5 mm thick.

How long will my veneers last?

Typically, your veneers should last between 20-25 years without atrophying or losing colour.

Should I be worried about my crown or veneer coming loose depending on what I eat?

Live your life as you usually would. Your porcelain veneer or crown is durable and rarely comes loose once it has been bonded. In the unusual circumstance that it does, feel free to give us a call and we can help you fix it.

Will my insurance cover the cost of this treatment?

Some insurance providers cover a portion of veneers or crowns. For a more detailed explanation of your coverage please call your service provider.
