Veneers in Los Angeles, CA

Porcelain Veneers Los AngelesIndividuals who want to restore their beautiful smile can get porcelain veneers. Dr. Solomon is a world-class dentist who regularly performs this procedure in Los Angeles, CA.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin materials that are crafted to cover the teeth’s front surface and improve their appearance in the process. These custom-made shells are tooth-colored to conform to the natural appearance of teeth and are made to bond to the front of the teeth, giving them a new shape, size, length, or color.

Why is porcelain an ideal material for veneers?

Dr. Solomon provides his patients with porcelain-made veneers since the material best resists stains. Moreover, porcelain is tooth-colored because it is able to reflect light just like natural teeth. There are pros and cons regarding any type of material used in veneers, which is why it is better to discuss this concern with Dr. Solomon during your consultation with him.

What are the uses of veneers?

Veneers can be used to cover discolored teeth, which have been stained due to several factors such as excessive fluoride exposure, use of tetracycline or other medications, or root canal treatment. Teeth that are also chipped, broken, or worn down are best hidden by porcelain veneers – especially when the patient does not want a tooth to be extracted. Gapped teeth or those that are irregularly-shaped or misaligned may also be addressed by dental veneers.

What preparations are made before my dental veneer procedure?

After Dr. Solomon has identified your candidacy for the treatment, your teeth will then undergo a preparation stage wherein half a millimeter of your tooth enamel will be removed in order to make way for the veneer that will be added to your tooth surface. This procedure will be done while you are under local anesthesia to make it as comfortable as possible. Dr. Solomon will then make an impression of your tooth to serve as a model as your veneers are being constructed. The making of your veneers will take about a week or two.

What can I expect during porcelain veneer placement?

The dental veneers will be permanently bonded to your teeth right after Dr. Solomon determines the perfect fit and color of your veneers. Before cementing the dental appliance, your tooth will be cleaned, polished, and etched – doing so will make the bonding much stronger. Once the veneer is cemented into place, any excess bonding material is removed and final adjustments in your veneers are made.

The costs are incredibly high, even with insurance. I would not go back and not refer anyone. I am going to try to be placed with a different primary care dentist.

He is very patient and kind when dealing with TMD. I also like his techniques he uses to get to the root of the issue and not just patch it up like many dentists I have dealt with before.
