Veneers are increasingly becoming a popular treatment for many patients that would like to improve the appearance of their teeth and improve their appeal. Veneers are fine strips made of composite matter. They are placed on the front surface of a tooth to appear like the tooth’s actual surface and portray the desired look of the tooth.
The veneers are very thin, and when placed on a tooth they cannot be differentiated from the tooth and they will appear as part of the tooth. Dr. F Isaac Hakim is a qualified dentist in Los Angeles, who among other specialization is an experienced veneers dentist. Book an appointment with him today and get linked up with the best veneers Los Angeles has on the market.
Who needs veneers?
Since veneers are placed on the front surface of teeth, the issues they solve are on the teeth’s appearance. As such, patients suffering from fractured or broken crowns would benefit from veneers. Stained and discolored teeth are other conditions that are solved by veneers. Therefore, if you have stained teeth that are affecting the way you associated with people in public, then you should veneers. Veneers have an added advantage to other procedures and they are even more ideal in some instances.
For example, a patient with fractured incisors that are also stained would need a procedure that can solve both insecurities. Unlike teeth whiteners that will only correct the color problem, veneers will also take care of the fractured crowns by covering them, thus solving both problems. Misaligned as well as badly shaped teeth are also solved by veneers.
So what are you waiting for?
Contact our veneers Los Angeles dentist and have your veneers custom made for you and installed on your teeth to transform your smile from a shy and self-conscious one to the perfect confident one.
The initial process will be an oral examination to get molds of your teeth as well as establish the extent of damage on the affected teeth. Dr. Hakim will employ the use of 3D scanners to come up with an exact impression of your mouth in order to come up with perfect solutions for you that will fit your teeth perfectly.
Each veneer is designed to fit the specific tooth and solve the specific condition associated with it. The details that the dentist gets about your teeth are then sent to the dental lab where your veneers are prepared. The process of manufacturing is computerized and this greatly reduces the margin error coming up with veneers that are special for you.
Once the veneers are ready, they are carefully placed on each of the affected teeth and fixed using adhesives. Care is needed in the first few hours after treatment for the adhesives to get strong and hold the veneers into position. As such, you should not exert pressure on the affected area, but the dentist will explain all the necessary precautions involved. Following the procedure, you will be on your way out of our clinic, a different being, with a new natural-looking smile as proof for it.
