There are many ways to restore tooth structure. You may have had fillings done as an adolescent. Unfortunately, those fillings tend to stain and wear out over time. Replacing fillings may prove to be a short term solution and may not enhance the smile. In such situations, porcelain veneers may be a good option.
Porcelain veneers may be a suitable option for enhancing ones smile. In individuals with a clenching or grinding habit, the teeth may have been worn down over time. In such instances, the worn down teeth may make a person look older than they really are. Porcelain veneers offer a conservative approach to restoring tooth structure that was lost due to wear or trauma.
The visit includes a consultation to determine if veneers are right for you. For long term maintenance it is vital that the patient has established good oral hygiene and oral habits. Once we have determined that you are a good candidate we will take some preliminary impressions. We will use those impressions and come up with a “mock up” or sample of what your teeth will look like once they have been restored. We use a wax model of your smile to help you visualize how porcelain veneers can restore the shape, size and color of your teeth.
We work closely with our custom lab to ensure that the patient is completely satisfied and we can even modify the color and tone of each veneer chairside because your satisfaction and smile is our goal here at Century City Smiles.
