Porcelain Dental Veneers in La Verne

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Are you unhappy with the appearance of your teeth? Do you hide your smile because of discoloration, chips, or gaps? If so, porcelain veneers may be the solution you need to transform your smile’s appearance once and for all. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of high-grade ceramic materials that are placed over the front surface of your teeth. They are custom-made to fit over your existing teeth and are bonded to the enamel with a strong dental adhesive.

Who should get veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a versatile cosmetic dental treatment that can address a range of concerns, including:

  • Discoloration: If your teeth are stained or discolored and do not respond to teeth whitening treatments, porcelain veneers can provide a bright, white smile.
  • Chips and cracks: If you have chips, cracks, or other minor damage to your teeth, porcelain veneers can restore the appearance and function of your teeth.
  • Gaps and spaces: If you have gaps or spaces between your teeth, porcelain veneers can close the gaps and create a more uniform smile.

Getting Dental Veneers

The process of getting porcelain veneers typically requires two or three appointments. During the first appointment, Dr. Choi will assess your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment. If porcelain veneers are the right solution for you, Dr. Choi will begin by removing a thin layer of enamel from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Next, he will take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be used to create your custom-made veneers. You may receive temporary veneers to protect your teeth while your permanent veneers are being made. 

We may even be able to have you wear a “try-in” set that allows you to preview the proposed veneer design.

Once your permanent porcelain veneers are ready, you will return to Prizm Dental for the second appointment. Dr. Choi will remove the temporary veneers and carefully place the permanent veneers over your teeth. He will check the fit and color of your veneers to ensure that they look and feel natural. Once you are both satisfied with the placement of your veneers, Dr. Choi will bond them to your teeth using a strong dental adhesive.
