Are veneers right for you?
Because veneers can transform an imperfect smile in profound ways, many of our patients express an interest in this cosmetic treatment. In general, to be considered an ideal candidate, you should want to address issues that veneers can fix, like chipped and discolored teeth. In addition, You should have good oral and periodontal health, without any active tooth decay, gum disease or infections. It’s also important that you’re committed to maintaining your oral health and practicing proper hygiene moving forward, to ensure that your beautiful veneers endure for as long as possible. Being one of the top providers of porcelain veneers Woodland Hills & Northridge have to offer, Dr. Matian and the Northridge dental staff will help you get the necessary information on how to defeat any existing oral health issues before continuing with veneers.
Transforming your smile with traditional porcelain veneers
The process of transforming your smile with porcelain veneers will begin during your initial consultation with our office. During that meeting, we will first evaluate your oral health to ensure you’re an ideal candidate for veneers. We will then collect x-rays, photographs and dental impressions, all of which will guide us in creating your one-of-a-kind treatment plan. From there, we’ll create a digital image of what your new smile will look like after receiving the veneers, so you know exactly what to expect from your treatment before it even begins.
If you decide to move forward with veneers, you will return to our office so we can prep your teeth, a process that will last approximately two hours. During this visit, we will remove a very fine layer of enamel from the surface of your teeth, before taking dental impressions of the area. We will then send the impressions to an off-site lab, where your custom veneers will be created. In the meantime, we will place temporary veneers to protect your prepared teeth.
Once your veneers have been created, you will return to the office one final time to have them placed. To begin, we will etch the surface of your tooth and coat it with a special bonding agent. We will then apply dental cement to the veneers and place them over your prepared teeth, before hardening the cement with a powerful light to finalize the restoration. Once your restoration is complete and your porcelain veneers have been placed, you can expect your beautiful new smile to endure for approximately ten years, at which point you’ll need to return to our office to have your restoration replaced.
