Dental veneers first made their appearance in Hollywood in the 1930s. Dentistry was rarely a priority for early actors, and their smiles often suffered due to this dental neglect. Dr. Charles Pincus came up with the idea to attach acrylic shells to the fronts of the actors’ teeth to hide the years of damage. These early veneers were temporary in nature, but as the field of cosmetic dentistry advanced, so did veneers. Today, we have more advanced materials than ever before, and our expert in Lava veneers lower Torrance can transform your smile using the latest advancements to create a look that is just as beautiful as any Hollywood smile today.
Lava veneers are a special type of veneer. Unlike traditional porcelain veneers, Lava veneers are made using Zirconia, a special crystal, and nanoceramic that allows them to be as translucent as natural teeth. The Zirconia is then blended with resin, which allows it to have some flexibility, just like natural teeth. This allows them to withstand bite forces better than conventional porcelain, which can be brittle in some circumstances. Our dentist in Torrance can help you decide if Lava veneers are right for you.
