Hi! Welcome to the Sherman Oaks Dental dental blog where we take the time to answer some of the questions dental patients in the Sherman Oaks area are curious about. Today we are focusing on fabulous veneers, which are used extensively in cosmetic dentistry.
Dental veneers (also called laminates) are custom made to permanently cover the front part of one or more teeth. Wafer-thin, super-strong veneers can correct a variety of problems including:
4. Teeth that are misshapen
5. Teeth that are too short
6. Teeth that are misaligned
7. Gaps between teeth
When you get veneers, your Van Nuys, Studio City CA, and Sherman Oaks dentist will first make a model of your teeth. Then, a dental technician uses the model to create the veneers. In some veneer procedures, a small amount of the enamel from the face of the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed. In such cases, the procedure is irreversible.
If you are in the Sherman Oaks area and are looking for a family, general or cosmetic dentist, give Sherman Oaks Dental a call. My name is Dr. Michael Bjornbak and I have been practicing advanced dentistry in Sherman Oaks, California since 1987. The art and science of cosmetic dentistry is my passion.
Please call 818-465-9704 and a member of our compassionate staff can answer any questions you have about veneers, teeth whitening, invisible braces, sedation dentistry, pediatric dentistry, general dental care, or smile makeovers.
