Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Our experienced prosthodontist, Dr. Frank Vidjak, has extensive training with veneers and offers several types of elite veneer services to residents of the greater Beverly Hills area.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to esthetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.
Will they look like normal teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options, except for possibly ceramic/porcelain crowns.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers can brighten your smile for well over a decade.
Dr. Vidjak will ensure that your veneers are created from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Refraining from using your veneers 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 veneer involved. In addition, most patients benefit from the nightly use of an occlusal guard to further enhance the lifespan of the veneers.
