Even with a good routine of teeth and gum care, you may experience inhibitions about your smile that are primarily cosmetic in nature. For example, teeth can begin to exhibit a dull, yellow color instead of a white appearance that you may expect. In addition, gaps in the teeth may be more noticeable. Finally, teeth misalignment may be a growing concern. Our dentist services the Glendale, Pasadena, and Burbank areas, and can help you identify your candidacy for this popular cosmetic treatment.
With these concerns taken into account, a flexible solution that exists for patients are veneers. These are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to your teeth surface and resulting in a lasting aesthetic improvement to your smile. They are colored to appear as natural teeth, which means they can integrate seamlessly with your smile. The veneers are fabricated in a dental lab using a mold of your teeth.
You may be an ideal candidate for veneers under the following conditions:
- Your teeth can support veneers
- Your bite is aligned
- There are no habitual grinding or clenching issues
- Tooth decay is not prevalent
- Gum disease is not prevalent
Generally, if your teeth are in good shape, you will be in a good position to have veneers as your cosmetic treatment. In addition, there are no-prep veneers available if you prefer not to have excessive enamel prep work done.
