What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to your teeth for more natural color and appearance. Veneers are custom-made and can be used to correct the following:

  • Stains on the teeth that resist bleaching
  • Teeth damaged by chips or wear
  • Misshapen or crooked teeth
  • Irregular spacing
  • A gap between the front teeth

Why Porcelain Veneers?

Our porcelain veneers in Malibu are made of composite resin material or porcelain. Porcelain is Dr. Chow’s choice for veneers because they provide a bright white smile with well-shaped teeth. Additionally, because damaged teeth are susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease, veneers are easier to care for with brushing and flossing, which makes them a formidable defense. Some examples of other benefits of porcelain veneers include:

  • Long-lasting, strong and durable
  • Look natural, like your teeth normally would
  • Less enamel is required for removal compared with a cap or dental crown 
  • Resist stains

Dr. Chow is a top Malibu dentist with the expertise and experience to ensure your veneers are the proper shape, color, and size to match surrounding teeth.

How Are Porcelain Veneers Applied?

To begin, the tooth or teeth must be prepared. Dr. Chow will slightly shave the tooth down. If enough natural tooth was removed, he might place a temporary veneer over the tooth while the porcelain veneer is made. Any decay found will also be removed.

Dr. Chow will work with you using a shade guide to find the exact shade of porcelain that will match the surrounding teeth. To make a model of your jaw, he will take an impression of your gums and teeth. This impression is then used to custom-make your veneer.

Next, Dr. Chow will permanently bond the veneer to the tooth. He will carefully trim or reshape it until the veneer fits perfectly over your natural tooth. Final touches are then made to the veneer's color to get it to match as closely as possible to the rest of your teeth. Please note that Dr. Chow will do all he can to achieve the closest match, but it may not be perfect.

When the color and fit have been finalized, he will etch the surface of your tooth, creating a texture for the cement to adhere to. A curing light will be aimed at the veneered tooth to set the glue. This process only takes a few minutes. Finally, Dr. Chow will check your bite to ensure it is correct. He will polish the veneer, making it bright and allowing you to feel confident in showing off your newly straightened smile!
