Featured Image

Are you ready to have the perfect white smile you have been dreaming about? Porcelain veneers require very little preparation to give you a movie star smile.

Celebrity dentist Dr. Victoria Veytsman at Cosmetic Dental Studios in Beverly Hills, CA will take either a physical or digital dental impression to create your customized cosmetic veneers in the office or send the impressions to a qualified dental laboratory to have the veneers fashioned from high-quality porcelain. Our team will pick a white shade that complements your features and creates a stunning and natural-looking smile.

Dr. Veytsman will start removing a small amount of enamel from the front of the teeth. Removal of the enamel helps to improve the bond between the teeth and the veneers. After the veneers are fully bonded, Dr. Veytsman can make minor adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.

Benefits of porcelain veneers

Whether you have chipped or cracked teeth, decay, or a crooked smile, veneers can improve your appearance dramatically. Veneers will correct many cosmetic dental issues and give you a confident smile.

  • Creates a more symmetrical smile

  • Provides a more youthful appearance

  • Hides imperfections such as decays, fillings, stains, cracks, or chips

  • Durable and long-lasting

  • Does not require extensive dental care or maintenance

Are porcelain veneers right for me?

To determine if you are a suitable candidate for porcelain veneers, you should undergo a consultation and checkup with Dr. Veytsman at Cosmetic Dental Studios in Beverly Hills, CA. She will evaluate your oral health and discuss your goals with you. Patients with signs of periodontal disease might not be suitable candidates for veneers.

Veneers are an effective way to straighten misaligned teeth or ones spaced too far apart or misshapen. Each porcelain veneer is custom designed to look natural, function perfectly, and feel like your own teeth.

How veneers are applied

The application of porcelain veneers rarely requires any anesthesia. You can continue your normal life and activities following the application. Some patients report feeling slight sensitivity to hot or cold for a few days. Continue to care for your teeth by brushing and flossing. Porcelain veneers will not stop cavities from forming, so it’s important to regularly clean and care for your teeth.

Veneers do offer some protection to your natural teeth. However, you’ll need to maintain your dental cleanings and examinations to ensure that your veneers stay looking fantastic and last for years. If you should damage a veneer, Dr. Veytsman can easily fix the problem.

Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant, but you should still avoid drinking foods or beverages that might discolor the veneers. Also, avoid biting down hard or chewing on hard foods, such as hard candies or ice.
