Dental Veneers

Once worn exclusively by movie stars, dental veneers have become a popular solution for everyday people looking to improve the look of their smile. At Oak Lawn Smiles Family Dentistry, we provide cosmetic dentistry near Burbank to help you smile with confidence.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that can be placed over the teeth for a dramatically improved appearance. Before dental veneers can be created, your dentist will grind down the surface of your teeth to make room for them. Though the amount of enamel that will be removed is typically minor, this step of the process makes veneers irreversible.

While your permanent veneers are being created, you will be provided with a set of temporary veneers. Once your dental veneers are ready, you will then return for a fitting and, if no adjustments need to be made, they will be cemented to your teeth with a specialized adhesive.

Who is a Good Candidate for Dental Veneers?

While many aesthetic concerns can be addressed with less-invasive cosmetic bonding or whitening, veneers provide more extensive and long-lasting results. You may want to consider veneers if one or more of your teeth is:

  • Cracked
  • Chipped
  • Misshapen
  • Misaligned
  • Discolored

Those who are good candidates for dental veneers will also be in generally good dental health. If you have an ongoing dental issue that would compromise the procedure or vice-versa, our dentist may recommend holding off on veneers until treatment is complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?

Like your natural teeth, dental veneers are not immune to damage caused by wear-and-tear or accidents. On average, veneers are likely to last approximately 10 years before needing to be replaced. Excellent care at home and regular dental visits may help prolong their lifespan up to 20 years or more.

How Many Veneers Do I Need?

The number of veneers you need will rely on the effect you are looking for in your smile. While some patients come to us with a single problem tooth, others want all of their visible teeth covered with veneers. During your consultation with our dental team, we can provide you with recommendations based on your impressions of your smile and our experience.

I love coming to this clinic because they always greet you when you come in and make you feel welcome. They are always running on time, which is great because I have to get to work as soon as possible. My daughter likes coming here too and she used to be afraid of going to the dentist.

I've always hated the dentist, but this place is awesome! First off, the staff is so great and welcoming. They made me feel 100% comfortable even though I was in a lot of pain and was honestly really nervous since it's been a while that I've seen the dentist. Dr. Theresa is by far the most personable and non judgmental dentist I've ever seen. She kept me informed the entire time during the visit and kept me calm. Love this place, maybe going to the dentist from now on won't be so stressful after all.

I had my best experience I've ever had at a dentist here at Oak Lawn Smiles. The whole office is modern and the staff is very friendly! My dentist was very conservative with her approach on what to do with my situation. 10/10 would recommend to other people to check this place out.
