VENEERS: Composite and Porcelain!

Veneers are a custom-designed casing made of either composite or porcelain that fits over the surface of a tooth.  Porcelain veneers are typically crafted in a laboratory and bonded to the teeth.  Another option are composite veneers, which can be created inside the dental office during your visit.  Of the two types of veneers, porcelain veneers tend to be more durable but more costly.   Veneers are an extremely effective way to achieve a beautifully aligned smile with bright, shapely teeth.   Veneers are not only utilized for cosmetic reasons; they serve a variety of dental-health needs as well.  Some of the symptoms treated by Veneers include:

  • Wear and Tear: As aging teeth tend to crack, chip, or acquire an uneven appearance dental veneers can protect the teeth and inhibit further wear and tear.
  • Worn Enamel: Enamel can become thin over time, causing teeth to become discolored, dull, or worn, and veneers. both restore the appearance of the tooth but also prevent worn enamel in the future.
  • Undesirable Spacing in the Teeth: Dental Veneers are a way to eliminate unwanted spacing in your smile.
  • Teeth Whitening: Dental Veneers will help you achieve a bright, white smile.
  • A Dental Crown Alternative:  Occasionally the use of a veneer will be sufficient instead of the need for a dental crown, which requires the removal of the top half of the tooth and a mold of the original tooth can be put in its place.  A veneer is a much less painful and invasive alternative.
LUMINEERS: A Lighter Take on Traditional Veneers

Lumineers are an all-new approach to veneers.  They are used for the same purposes as traditional veneers (with the exception of a dental crown alternative), but their design is such that if you decide you no longer want Lumineers, it is a completely reversible procedure.  It is also generally considered to be even less invasive than veneers.  The process of Lumineers requires two visits; one to take a mold of your teeth and the second to be checked for fit, shape, and then painlessly attached.  Lumineers are also proven to last twenty years.  So for a short, painless, and long-lasting solution to your smile needs, Lumineers may be the right option for you.

No matter what the reason behind your decision to opt for veneers or Lumineers, at Encino Dentist we have the highest level of training and newest technology available.  Contact us to schedule a consultation today; we can help you decide if veneers or Lumineers are right for you!

encino dentistI am a patient of Dr. John Chaves. I agree with the comments that I’ve read about your service and care; your team is absolutely the best  I’ve always dreaded going to the dentist, but with Dr. Chaves he made me feel comfortable and I wouldn’t trust another dentist with my smile!
- Marie T., Encino, CA

encino dentistLiving in Los Angeles, there is such a hyper focus on looks and appearances and it seemed to be the pitch line of every dentist I encountered.  And as much as I wish the look of my smile was my biggest concern, I was dealing with far more severe issues; such as the nerves in my teeth being exposed- a result of grinding my teeth at night, as well as several teeth in dire need of either root canals or dental crowns.  Dr. Chaves was the first dentist I encountered whose primary concern was my dental health.  For the first time in years brushing my teeth is no longer a painful ordeal and I can enjoy a hot coffee and cold bite of ice cream without cringing.  Thank you Dr. Chaves for giving me my life back.

encino dentistDr. Chaves I can’t thank you enough for the most incredible smile.  I’ve always had teeth that were never quite crooked enough for braces, but enough to really bother me.  Especially in my industry, where on a daily basis my first impression can make or break a relationship with a new client.  I have a newfound confidence and it feels so good to hear the never-ending stream of compliments.
