Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic way to restructure your smile. Veneers are constructed from thin porcelain sheets that are placed directly onto your teeth. The veneers can be shaped and contoured to straighten and whiten your smile. The lightweight porcelain veneers are strong, durable, and easy to apply by our cosmetic dentist in Torrance. Porcelain veneers are a popular alternative compared to other dental solutions for smile restoration.
Porcelain veneers provide strength and stability because they rely on your natural teeth for support. The veneers provide natural functionality to your teeth with a more pleasing appearance. Porcelain is naturally resistant to staining and will provide long-term benefits to your smile when combined with good oral hygiene habits and regular dental checkups. Porcelain veneers are designed to last many years, but may need a replacement if damage or oral injuries occur.

Porcelain veneers can be used:
• To Improve Teeth Alignment and Spacing
• For Straightening Crooked Teeth
• To Whiten Staining and Discoloration
• For Correcting Large or Small Teeth

The placement of porcelain veneers is typically completed in two dental visits. Since veneers are applied easily, the use of anesthesia from an expert in porcelain veneers in Torrance is minimal or not required. Your teeth will be examined and prepared for the shaping procedure on the first visit. This shaping allows your teeth to accept the placement of the porcelain veneers so as to ensure a perfectly aligned smile. Impressions of your teeth are made by your Torrance porcelain veneers expert and the desired color of your teeth will be selected. This information is used for creation of the veneers.
The placement process will begin during your second visit to a Torrance porcelain veneers expert. Your teeth will be cleaned and prepared with a bonding agent that will ensure a permanent bond to the porcelain veneers. The veneers are placed and positioned on your teeth by our Torrance cosmetic dentist. A specialized light source is applied to your teeth to allow the bonding to harden and create a permanent attachment to your natural teeth. Your expert in porcelain veneers in Torrance will provide you with aftercare instructions to help keep your new smile white and healthy.
