Are You Considering Porcelain Veneers?

If you have been considering porcelain veneers, it’s time to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Pasadena. Dr. Paul Shinto, Dr. Kyle Low, and their team have been successfully placing porcelain veneers for decades and are preferred and licensed cosmetic dentists.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of dental grade porcelain that your Pasadena cosmetic dentist places over the fronts of teeth. Because you will need a tight and natural looking fit, a portion of the tooth is removed. This makes porcelain veneers permanent.

 

When are Porcelain Veneers Used?

Dental veneers fix a multitude of problems. These include chipped and cracked teeth, teeth that cannot be lightened with professional tooth whitening and teeth that are too short or too long. Porcelain veneers from your Pasadena cosmetic dentist can literally change your entire smile.

 

Are Porcelain Veneers Used on All Teeth?

While some patients choose veneers for all teeth, others opt for veneers on the six to eight teeth that show when you smile. Some patients choose porcelain veneers for the front teeth while opting for cosmetic dental crowns or CEREC® for the rest of their teeth. 

Your cosmetic dentist in Pasadena will evaluate your smile to determine what types of restorations would be best for your new smile.

 

Is There and Alternative to Porcelain Veneers?

If you are unsure that you want a permanent solution, talk to Dr. Shinto or Dr. Low about cosmetic dental bonding. Dental bonding is a procedure that is completely reversible.

Bonding works virtually the same as veneers as it repairs chips and cracks and can change the color of your teeth. Talented cosmetic dentists in Pasadena can even change the shape of the tooth with cosmetic dental bonding.
