What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain that your dentist permanently attaches to the front of your teeth. They can disguise a wide range of flaws including:

  • Discoloration
  • Cracks and chips
  • Minor misalignment
  • Small gaps
  • Teeth that are too small
  • Misshapen teeth

You can choose to get a single veneer to cover a particularly unattractive tooth, or you can invest in an entire set of veneers to achieve a complete smile transformation.

The Process of Getting Veneers

The process to upgrade your smile with veneers is relatively simple. First, you sit down for a consultation with our cosmetic dentist in Los Alamitos, who gets familiar with your dental needs and particular smile goals. Once you are deemed to be a viable candidate, he will remove a tiny amount of enamel, so your veneers have room to blend in perfectly with your current grin.

From there, he will take 3D images of your teeth that a trusted dental lab technician will use to create your custom veneers. The timeframe for this step is usually a few weeks, so we will provide you with temporary veneers to wear.

When we receive your permanent veneers from the lab, Dr. Poe will place them using exceptionally strong bonding cement. Further customization will be done as needed. Once the process is completed, you’ll have a sensational smile, and we’ll make sure you are informed about how to take great care of it!

The Benefits of Veneers

Why are veneers worth every penny? Because they are:

  • Long-Lasting: With proper care and regular checkups, veneers can maximize your smile for well over a decade.
  • Stain-Resistant: Veneers aren’t nearly as susceptible to stains as your natural tooth enamel, so they can be an effective long-term whitening solution.
  • Custom-Made: Veneers are crafted to be the perfect size, shape, and color to blend in with your specific smile.
  • Easy to Maintain: Just as you do for natural teeth, be sure to brush twice and floss once daily, plus rinse with mouthwash. Then, visit your dentist every six months for a cleaning while he also checks the fit and appearance of your veneers.
