Porcelain Veneers Encino
Dr. Farzad and his team provide the Encino area with passionate dedicated cosmetic dentistry. One key area of focus for us is porcelain veneers which will completely transform ones smile into a natural beautiful looking smile. With the help of porcelain veneers you can have the confidence to stop hiding your teeth and let your smile shine through.
Dental veneers consist of ultra-thin personalized shells that match ones desired teeth color. The shells are then fitted to the front surface of teeth and drastically improve the appearance of misshapen or damaged teeth. Dental veneers can be made of both porcelain and composite materials. Porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains and light reflects more naturally than composite materials.
If you decide you want to explore veneers, Dr. Farzad will consult with you and take X-rays ensuring you are a proper candidate. The procedure begins with the dentist providing a local anesthetic to numb the area and then begin removing a small amount of enamel, from each tooth, that equals the thickness of your new veneers.
We will then make impressions of your teeth, which is as a guide to fabricate your new veneers. On your final dental visit, Dr. Farzad will temporarily place the veneers to ensure their fit and color is optimal. Once properly positioned we will apply a small amount of dental cement and special UV light that activates chemicals in the veneers to harden and cure quickly. The last step is to ensure your bite is correct and excess cement is removed.
