Hamlin Dental Group believes that one oustanding way to improve your smile is to get veneers in Northridge, Van Nuys or North Hollywood at one of our offices. Made of porcelain or composite materials, these products are designed to cover the front surfaces of your teeth and cover up all types of imperfections.
While not permanent, veneers are very durable and bonded to the teeth. They can be used to repair tooth damage as well as to reshape your teeth and smile. Our dentistry professionals are skilled at creating and installing veneers for all your dentistry needs.
Procedure for Veneers
Whether you get your veneers at our Van Nuys, North Hollywood, or Northridge dental group, the overall process will be largely the same. It breaks down as follows:
Step 1: The Plan
Communication is key in every endeavor, and cosmetic dentistry is no different. First, you will explain to your dentist in Los Angeles, the overall goal you are trying to achieve. Then, the dentist will take a thorough look at your teeth to ensure that veneers are appropriate for your teeth and gums. It’s important, at this stage, that you have realistic expectations of the final outcome, and your dentist will do his or her best to explain the likely results.
Step 2: The Groundwork
First, your Hamlin cosmetic dentist in North Hollywood, Van Nuys, or Northridge will determine whether or not a local anesthetic will be required. Next, he or she take an impression of the tooth and will remove a very small amount of the tooth. It will take a number of days before the finished veneer, which is based on the dentist’s impression, will be ready to use.
Step 3: The Attachment
This step will require some patients as your dentist will painstakingly insert and remove the veneer to make the many final adjustments that will be needed to ensure it fits in the mouth. The dentist will repeatedly remove and trim the veneer as needed to achieve the proper fit. The next step in the process will be affixing the finished veneer to the tooth. After that, the dentist will take some time to ensure that unneeded materials are removed and that your teeth and bite are comfortable and healthy.
Your Van Nuys, Northridge, or North Hollywood cosmetic dentist will stay in touch and likely ask you to make a return visit in order to ensure your mouth is adjusting to the veneer properly.
