LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Kevin Sands, Los Angeles porcelain veneers expert, uses porcelain veneers to provide his patients with a brand new smile. Veneers are a fast and efficient way to resolve a number of cosmetic dental problems.
Veneers are thin shells, usually made from porcelain or ceramic, that cover the fronts of the teeth. They cover badly stained teeth, poorly spaced teeth, unusually shaped teeth, atypically small teeth, and/or worn, chipped, or cracked teeth. Whether the patient suffers from one of these problems or from multiple cosmetic dental problems, veneers can often help resolve the issues and give the patient an even, radiant smile.
These dental devices can be applied in just two office visits, allowing the patient to enjoy their new smile within weeks versus the months or years that it takes to complete some other cosmetic dental treatments, such as straightening teeth. First, Dr. Sands examines the patient's teeth to help determine if veneers are the right solution for their specific cosmetic dental issue. Then, he removes a small amount of dental enamel from the fronts of the teeth to make room for the veneers. He then makes a mold of the teeth to send to a dental laboratory that specializes in making porcelain dental devices. Once the veneers come back from the lab, Dr. Sands applies them with a special dental bond. When the bond has hardened, the patient can begin to enjoy their brand new smile.
When cared for properly, veneers can last ten years or more before they need to be replaced. Dr. Sands, Los Angeles porcelain veneers dentist, recommends brushing and flossing the veneers regularly as well as scheduling regular office visits.
Contact Dr. Sands to schedule a consultation for veneers. Dr. Sands is currently welcoming new patients and consulting with existing patients for veneers and other cosmetic dental procedures.
