Enhance your smile with Porcelain Veneers

The team at Greg Campbell DDS offers dental veneers for patients looking to restore or improve their smile with a relatively simple and non-invasive procedure. These restorations are readily available for Long Beach, California, area patients looking for an aesthetic solution for the teeth near the front of the smile.

What is a porcelain veneer?

A porcelain veneer is a very thin shell custom-designed to fit perfectly over your tooth to correct cosmetic imperfections. They are a highly desirable option for individuals seeking a long-term repair for the teeth near the front of the smile, called the “anterior teeth.”

How are porcelain veneers used?

Natural-looking porcelain veneers can be used to cover small chips or cracks in your teeth, but they’re also a helpful solution for the following:

  • Uneven, misaligned, or misshapen teeth
  • Discoloration that can’t be improved through whitening
  • Unwanted gaps
  • Dull enamel
  • Crooked teeth
  • Small teeth

How long will it take to design and place my porcelain veneers?

Receiving your veneers will usually take just a few dental appointments. Minimal prep veneers will maintain as much tooth structure as possible. Your dentist will need to create a mold of your teeth that will then be sent to a lab so that the veneers can be fabricated, usually out of porcelain or composite resin. In the subsequent visit, your dentist will clean and prepare your teeth. They will then apply your veneers using dental cement and a special UV light. Once the process is complete, you’ll be able to leave the office with a brand-new smile.

Veneers
Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
