Are Dental Veneers Right for Me? | Dr. Esteban Parada

At Pure Essence Dentistry, your trusted Dentist in Torrance, we often have patients inquire about solutions for stained teeth or closing gaps between teeth. One option we may recommend is veneers. Here’s everything you need to know about veneers and whether they’re right for your smile.

What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin covers placed over the front of your teeth. Typically made of dental porcelain, they’re designed to cover your existing tooth rather than replacing it.

What They Do
Veneers can address various cosmetic concerns, such as repairing a broken or chipped tooth, reducing noticeable gaps between teeth, or masking visible stains. Each veneer is custom-sized to fit your teeth, and they’re applied over your existing teeth without altering their structure.

What You Need to Know
While veneers can enhance your smile, they may cause a minor increase in sensitivity, especially to hot or cold foods and drinks. Veneers are generally nonreversible as they require a small amount of enamel removal. After getting veneers, it’s best to avoid staining beverages like wine, coffee, or tea. Maintaining them requires regular brushing twice a day and flossing to prevent staining or decay.

It’s essential to understand that veneers address minor tooth issues like discoloration, gaps, or misalignment. They aren’t a replacement for orthodontic treatments like braces or other dental procedures.

Schedule a Visit
If you’re considering veneers, schedule a visit to our office to meet with our dentist. Our team will work with you to develop a personalized plan to achieve the smile you desire.
