Versatile Veneers Provide the Perfect Cover-Up

Even minor cosmetic damage can ruin your good smile. Sometimes all it takes is a small chip, an uneven tooth, or gaps between teeth. If you feel embarrassed by your teeth or actively hide your smile, you’re not alone. Studies have found that more than half of Americans are unhappy with how their teeth look and would like to change or improve something about their smile.

Dental veneers are one of the most versatile and effective options available to fix cosmetic damage and dramatically transform damaged or unattractive teeth in just a few visits to the dentist. At the Center for Implant & Esthetic Dentistry, our prosthodontist Dr. Ramin Mahallati and our team of dental professionals offer general and cosmetic dentistry services at our state of the art office in Beverly Hills, California.

A better and brighter smile with veneers

Everyone defines “the perfect smile” differently. For many people, stains and discolorations from diet and lifestyle habits like smoking contribute to low self-esteem and a reluctance to smile for pictures. To make matters worse, studies have found that bad teeth can interfere with a job search and career advancement. 

Whatever your reasons for wanting to improve your smile, whether it’s to make your teeth whiter or to change the size or shape of a damaged tooth, there’s no question that a healthy and attractive smile will improve your quality of life and deliver a sense of personal satisfaction. 

What porcelain veneers can do to improve your smile

Veneers are custom designed and constructed from a razor-thin, translucent layer of porcelain bonded onto the surface of the teeth. They can be molded to change the size, shape, and color of damaged teeth, so they’re the perfect solution for common problems like stains and discolorations, chips and cracks, and to close gaps and spaces between teeth. 

Even with healthy teeth, some people are simply unhappy with the way their teeth look and choose to get porcelain veneers for purely cosmetic reasons. The process is minimally invasive, so there’s no downtime or a healing and recovery period like with other dental restorations. 

With adequate care, porcelain veneers typically last an average of ten years but can last for much longer in many cases.

It’s never too late to invest in a beautiful, healthy smile. For more information about dental veneers and the cosmetic and restorative dentistry options available to you, contact us today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mahallati, or you can book an appointment online.
