Toluca Lake and North Hollywood, CA area dentist describes porcelain veneers
North Hollywood, CA area patients who are interested in learning more about restoring and rejuvenating their smiles often speak to a Toluca Lake area dentist about the advantages of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are custom-made to match the existing teeth and they are used to bond over the front of teeth and change their appearance. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center believes that porcelain veneers are a versatile solution to a wide range of concerns.
Porcelain veneers are strictly cosmetic and are typically used to cover imperfections of the smile. They are most often used to disguise problems such as misaligned teeth, teeth that are permanently stained or broken, unusually shaped teeth, and gaps between two teeth. Instead of undergoing teeth whitening, orthodontics, or dental bonding, patients can use porcelain veneers for long-term results.
Porcelain veneers are made of porcelain for many reasons. The material closely resembles the appearance of tooth enamel, making it a very natural-looking option. Additionally, it is strong and durable. This is important, as the teeth need to be able to withstand chewing and biting forces. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat ensures that his porcelain veneers are made of quality materials so they last many years with proper care and attention.
Most patients are appropriate candidates for porcelain veneers. Before patients have veneers placed, they must take good care of their smile. They should be free from decay and periodontal disease before placement, and must understand that porcelain veneers will not protect their teeth from these concerns in the future. Patients who are of most concern for veneers are those who suffer from bruxism. Bruxism is a condition that causes patients to clench and grind their teeth when they sleep. However, this can easily be addressed with special mouth guards worn at night to protect porcelain veneers and the natural teeth from wear and tear.
Patients in and around the North Hollywood, CA and Toluca Lakes area are welcome to contact Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center to schedule a consultation appointment and examination to learn about the advantages of porcelain veneers.
