Veneers In West Hollywood, CA 

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory.  They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile.  They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement.  They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

 

Veneer Procedure

Their design effectively mimics natural tooth enamel and are custom shaded to match the color of neighboring teeth. The durable porcelain material provides strength and resilience, and the shells are custom made for a comfortable fit and seamless look.

This cosmetic enhancement gives patients an immediate solution to their aesthetic concerns. Veneers are also great if you’ve had previous orthodontic work done but have experienced a relapse.

Dr. McLeod is fascinated by the ever-evolving field of cosmetic dentistry, which is why he dedicates himself to studying the latest improvements in technique, equipment, and material. This knowledge allows him to perform veneer placement with no compromises, leaving you thrilled with a newly restored smile.

Once we determine you are a good candidate for veneers, Dr. McLeod outlines the treatment plan and takes the time to answer your questions or concerns. We take impressions of your teeth so the manufacturing lab can create the veneers to your exact specifications.

Treatment is minimally invasive, so it doesn’t usually require local anesthesia. Once the veneer is placed, we use a curing light to ensure a secure and permanent fit.They are bonded onto the tooth in much the same way as tiles are bonded onto the space shuttle.

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile. 
  • Crooked teeth. 
  • Misshapen teeth. 
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth. 
  • Teeth that are too small or large. 
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces. 
  • Worn or chipped teeth.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure.  The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer.  A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.

On the second visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond.  Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.

You will receive care instructions for veneers.  Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers. Eggshell thin like a contact lens yet able to transform the appearance of the tooth. They are bonded onto the tooth in much the same way as tiles are bonded onto the space shuttle.
