Veneers services offered in Koreatown, Los Angeles, CA

What are veneers?

Veneers are an innovative dental solution. Veneers are thin porcelain sheets designed to address dental flaws and concerns.

Veneers match the natural contours of your teeth and fit snugly over their front surfaces to cover badly shaped, damaged, or discolored teeth. 

Your WPD Dental Group dentist makes impressions of your teeth and helps you choose the porcelain shade that most closely matches your natural teeth. You can choose a single veneer, multiple veneers, or an entire set.

What are veneers used for?

Veneers are an excellent dental solution to cover minor cosmetic imperfections that don’t need extensive dental work. At WPD Dental Group, your dentist might recommend veneers to address several dental issues, including: 

  • Dentin discoloration
  • Wide gaps
  • Chips
  • Broken teeth
  • Pointy teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Cracks
  • Heavy enamel staining

WPD Dental Group provides durable, natural-looking, and stain-resistant veneers.

To make sure your veneers last as long as possible, you should stay on top of your self-care at home and avoid chewing on pencils, popcorn seeds, ice cubes, and other hard objects that could damage your veneers.

With the right care, your veneers can last 10-15 years or longer. If your veneers wear down over time, you can always visit WPD Dental Group for new veneers.  

What can I expect when I get veneers?

Getting veneers at WPD Dental Group usually involves a minimally invasive procedure, local anesthesia, and two office visits. During your first visit, your dentist removes a minor amount of tooth enamel from the surface of your tooth to make it ready for the veneer. 

Your dentist creates a mold of your teeth and sends it to a dental lab where a lab technician custom crafts your veneers. Your dentist might place temporary veneers to protect your teeth in the interim, while your beautiful permanent veneers are created. 

When you go back to WPD Dental Group for your second appointment, your dentist removes your temporary veneers and might need to etch your teeth for a better fit. Your dentist uses a special dental cement to bond your veneers to your teeth.

To complete your procedure, your dentist carefully removes any remaining dental cement.

Veneers are a great choice to enhance your smile. Visit WPD Dental Group by scheduling online or over the phone.
