Do you long for a bright, beautiful, unblemished smile that stands out in a crowd? You’ve come to the right place! At Dr. Bostani’s Advanced Dental, we can make your dream smile a reality with porcelain veneers for teeth.
Veneers can make tooth imperfections disappear to leave your smile looking new. A visit to Dr. Payam Bostani in Burbank, California, can kickstart your journey to achieving the smile of your dreams with veneers.
With veneers, a radiant smile is well within your reach. Veneers can give you a picture-perfect smile rather quickly without going through a long, complex treatment. Veneers are custom-made ceramic or porcelain shells that can be cemented to the surface of your teeth to alter their appearance. These shells are fabricated in a special lab specifically for you.
Veneers can be used to improve one tooth or many, depending on the problems you want to fix. Once applied to your teeth, tooth flaws magically disappear, leaving only the beauty of the veneer shining through. Veneers work by concealing tooth imperfections to give your smile a more pleasing appearance.
Most people have something about their smile they’re displeased with. Significant problems with discolored, crooked, or damaged teeth require more extensive treatments. Minor flaws, however, like stained front teeth, an overlapping tooth, gaps in your smile, or chipped or cracked teeth, can be easily corrected with veneers.
This patient had disproportionately larger front teeth and gaps along all 6 upper front teeth. Veneers help to reshape teeth to the correct proportions as well as help close spaces. A total of 8 veneers were done on the uppers to get the perfect smile. He later said we “Changed his life!!”
This patient wanted to straighten his front teeth and close the small open bite that he had. A set of 6 veneers were done for the front teeth to straighten and close the front open bite. Group function/guidance was kept in this case. The results were incredible and imperceivable from natural teeth.
This patient case was a combination of Orthodontics, Implants, and finally Veneers and Implant crowns. Orthodontics was used to create the natural space of two missing front teeth. Two implants were placed at the time orthodontics finished. And finally, porcelain restorations (veneers and crowns) were done to complete the smile. The patient said “This was the smile he always dreamed of”
In this case, my patient knew his smile needed improvement. As he described it, his teeth left a gap when he smiled. Overall, his teeth were somewhat short, and they tilted inward. With minimal preparations, I added veneers that lengthened his front 8 teeth to the correct height/width and proclined them to remove the ‘inward’ look.
Veneers can make:
One of the best qualities of veneers is their versatility. They can correct multiple problems simultaneously to improve your smile’s appearance dramatically. Unlike other dental treatments that take months to complete, veneers can give you a beautiful new smile in as little as two to three dental visits.
Porcelain veneers are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Porcelain is a strong, stain-resistant material that can endure years of biting and chewing. It’s also a highly customizable material that can be tinted to the exact shade of your natural teeth and molded to the size and shape of your tooth to give your smile a pleasing, natural-looking appearance.
Porcelain veneers are easy to care for and maintain as they don’t require special treatment to retain their attractive appearance. By brushing and flossing daily and keeping up with your dental cleanings, your veneers can last over 10 years without needing to be repaired or replaced.
If you’re in the habit of chewing on ice or hard objects, using your teeth as tools, or eating hard candy, you’ll need to stop, as these habits can shorten the lifespan of your veneers. You should also limit your consumption of stain-causing foods and drinks as they could stain adjacent teeth and make your smile appear uneven.
