At Cosmetic Dental Studios in Beverly Hills, we offer porcelain veneers to those looking to improve their smile and oral health simultaneously. After a consultation with Dr. Victoria Veytsman, a cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, CA, she can determine which procedures will help you best achieve your smile goals. Veneers can be used to improve the alignment, color, length, size, and shape of the teeth. During your visit, we can also address some of the most asked questions we get about veneers, including “do porcelain veneers stain?” and “how do I care for veneers?” This allows our patients to make an informed decision for their oral health and when they want to get a celebrity smile.

What are veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that are custom-made for each patient and bonded to the front of their teeth in Beverly Hills, CA. At Cosmetic Dental Studios, Dr. V. uses this cosmetic dentistry procedure to improve how your smile looks and functions. It has been proven to fix broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. During your first visit to our dental office, we will perform a dental exam that determines if you’re a good candidate for veneers.

The best candidate for porcelain veneers is a patient without any signs of periodontal disease or tooth decay. If our celebrity dentist detects a dental issue, it must be resolved before you get your porcelain veneers. Ultimately, how much tooth enamel you have is the biggest determinant of if you’re a candidate for porcelain veneers in Beverly Hills, CA.

How to take care of veneers

Caring for porcelain veneers ensure they last a long time. While veneers don’t usually stain, brown lines can develop on their edges if you don’t care for them well. To best protect your veneers and other cosmetic dentistry procedures in Beverly Hills, CA, follow these tips:

  1. Follow an efficient at-home oral hygiene routine: Brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily to make sure your teeth and gums remain healthy. This reduces your chances of getting tooth decay or periodontal disease.

  2. Schedule annual dental exams and bi-annual dental cleanings: Scheduling these preventive dentistry appointments allows Dr. V. to detect oral health issues early.

  3. Use a night guard: For patients who clench or grind their teeth, a custom night guard helps protect your natural teeth and veneers.

  4. Avoid stain-causing food and beverages: Veneers don’t usually stain, but when you consume a lot of stain-causing foods or beverages, such as coffee, tea, or wine, they can occur.

While whitening veneers is difficult and not advisable, a professional dental cleaning can help remove and reduce stains that may have developed. For severe cases, you may need veneer replacement.
