Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Porcelain veneers are considered cosmetic dentistry and bonding custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place porcelain veneers routinely and design each individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile. When the porcelain veneer is bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain is virtually undetectable and highly resistant to the staining effects of coffee, tea, red wine, and even cigarettes. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. Dr. Shirin, the Thousand Oaks dentist that will be performing the bonding of the porcelain veneers, will ensure that your veneers are crafted form the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available. Refraining from using your "new teeth" as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the affected veneers on the teeth.
