Porcelain Veneers What to Expect
Teeth that are to be treated using dental veneers will first be prepared by removing a substantial amount of tooth enamel. Then, molds will be taken of the teeth and sent to a dental lab to create the dental veneers. Veneers can be custom shaped and color matched to match the natural, beautiful smile.
Once fabricated, veneers will be permanently bonded to the prepared teeth. Dental veneers are designed to be a permanent restoration and can not be reversed due to the removal of tooth enamel.
Dental veneers can cosmetically repair the aesthetics of the smile. Since this is a cosmetic dental procedure, it is important to ensure that teeth are healthy and functional before treatment. Dental veneers is one the dental services that Dr. Dall’Olmo offers his patients in Santa Monica, California.
