As a leading cosmetic dentist in Los Angeles, Dr. Michael Abaian embraces advancements in the industry. To this end, he became skilled in the placement of porcelain veneers. He did this to offer his patients the best in cosmetic dentistry. With veneers, Dr. Abaian can do away with a number of cosmetic problems that may be plaguing your smile.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers consist of several thin ceramic sheets and an adhesive layer. To place a veneer, Dr. Abaian will remove a small amount of the natural tooth. For most people, the amount that needs to be removed is less than a millimeter. This makes room for the veneer and provides a more secure attachment. The bond between a porcelain veneer and the original part of your tooth is vital because a strong connection ensures that the veneer gives you the proper oral functionality. A light-sensitive resin is used to provide this attachment.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Dr. Abaian recommends porcelain veneers to change the color or shape of a tooth. He uses them to correct teeth that have rotated as well as to close gaps between teeth. With porcelain veneers, the dentist can fix chips, stains and cracks. In some cases, he can even use them to correct a patient’s bite and resolve problems involving uneven teeth.
Veneers can be placed in just one or two visits, so they are an especially fast cosmetic procedure. One of the most popular benefits of porcelain veneers is that they’ll blend seamlessly with your tooth’s natural structure. After the treatment, you may not be able to distinguish the natural part of your tooth from the veneer portion.
At Gage Dental Care, we’ve embraced porcelain veneers as one of our cosmetic dental treatments because they are durable. In fact, you can expect to have your porcelain veneers for years. The dental appliance is stain resistant. They also resist discoloration and tarnishing. However, once they’re in place, be sure to continue your regular oral care.
