How dental veneers can enhance the smile 

At the practice of Dr. Darien Ephram, patients in and around the area of Valley Village, California, can obtain a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions to improve their smiles. This includes dental veneers, a popular treatment considered when imperfections and problems are present within the smile and detracting from an otherwise beautiful smile! Front teeth veneers are an excellent solution for many of our patients seeking aesthetic enhancement of the smile.

What is a dental veneer?

Dr. Ephram describes the dental veneer, sometimes referred to as a porcelain veneer, as a thin shell that is customized for a patient to cover imperfections in the smile. They are best used for the teeth near the front of the smile, called the anterior teeth or the “social six.”

How can dental veneers enhance the smile?

Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment that can be used to enhance the appearance of a person’s smile. This is because they can effectively mask imperfections in the teeth, such as cracks, discolorations and mis-aligned smiles . Dental veneers can also be customized, so you can choose their size and shape to meet your specific needs. By choosing dental veneers, you will improve the look of your smile and have healthier teeth, too! This is because dental veneers can also protect your natural teeth from further damage.

What can I expect when getting porcelain veneers?

First, a thorough in-office consult with Dr. Ephram to discuss their goals and concerns regarding the appearance of their smile. After this, he will recommend a treatment plan based on their unique needs and wants for the smile. This may include front teeth veneers or other cosmetic treatments, like dental crowns, depending on what is needed to achieve optimal results. 

Once you have decided to proceed with your treatment, Dr. Ephram will prepare the tooth by removing a thin portion of natural tooth enamel before taking an impression of your mouth. An outside dental lab uses these impressions to create the final restoration for bonding in place during a second visit to our office. You can enjoy your veneer for many years to come with proper care!

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.
