When patients of Dr. Saleh are curious about veneers at ORA Beverly Hills Dentistry Spa, the acclaimed dentist often explains that the idea behind veneers is similar to that of placing acrylic nails. Veneers are laboratory-constructed, custom-made facings, which are bonded to the tooth surface. Veneers provide excellent aesthetics because the laboratory can actually incorporate characteristics such as greater opacity and special stains and colors that allow an almost perfect match to your own tooth structure.
One of the most exciting techniques in cosmetic dentistry today involves bonding a thin veneer made of porcelain to the etched enamel tooth surface. The primary advantages of these veneers include:
- Flexibility of the material
Because porcelain doesn’t stain like composite resin, it remains attractive for a much longer period of time. In addition, gum tissue tolerates porcelain well, thus reducing the likelihood that gum problems will develop. With the correct preparation, veneers at Beverly Hills-based ORA Dentistry Spa can be used to give a straighter appearance to crowded teeth, close gaps and spaces, cover stained teeth and fillings and generally brighten and improve your smile.
AT ORA Dentistry Spa, the acclaimed dentist in Beverly Hills Dr. Saleh utilizes a porcelain veneer as thin as a contact lens, enabling you to maintain your healthy natural tooth structure intact. This is an extremely technique sensitive process, Dr. Saleh’s experience and training make him an expert in this field.
The Advantages of getting Dental Veneers
Today, one of the most popular trends is the use of dental veneers to transform smiles. This is very commonplace In Beverly Hills. Dr. Saleh works with veneers and other cosmetic procedures like Invisalign in Los Angeles to give you a dazzling smile. This painless and easy process can literally give you an instant new smile. Why go through time-consuming procedures such as braces, when you can have a new smile in just hours?
Dental veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. This is an ideal procedure to improve the appearance of front teeth. They can mask discoloration and brighten the most severely discolored teeth. This will give you a new smile and more confidence. If you have low self-esteem due to your smile and the condition of your teeth, dental veneers are the way forward.
Another advantage of dental veneers is that they are highly resistant to staining from coffee, tea, red wine and the use of tobacco. Dr. Saleh’s expertise is in creating a look that is natural, and compliments the patient’s individual features.
When consulting with Dr. Saleh, you may want to know why veneers are the way to go, to help you gain a beautiful smile. Veneers are a very conservative approach, but can achieve an endless number of smile improving goals. You can improve the shape, color, and size of your teeth. Within just a few visits, veneers can improve crooked and crowded teeth better than what two years of braces could ever achieve. They will last for many years.
Dr. Saleh explains that the process can take as little as three appointments. You will show up for diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation and temporization, and finally, bonding and finishing. Your appointment will take from two to four hours depending on how many veneers are being placed. It is typical to place 8-10 on the top and bottom teeth. These are the teeth that are the most visible.
You will also receive a local anesthetic so your teeth can be prepared for the dental veneer placement. Everything is done to ensure that you will have the best fit. The entire process takes between one and two hours to bond your dental veneers. They will then be placed on your teeth to check fit, before the permanent bond takes place. Before the veneer is cemented, the tooth is cleansed with a chemical that allows for optimal bonding.
After your dental veneers in Beverly Hills have been placed, you will have an adjustment period as you are getting used to your new teeth. It is ok to brush and floss as usual. After a week or two, you will return to the office for a follow-up visit. This will allow Dr. Saleh to make sure all is going well.
