worried that your teeth are chipped, stained, or misshapen?

You may benefit from visiting a cosmetic dentist in Santa Monica for dental veneers. Veneers offer an effective and natural-looking way to correct a range of cosmetic smile concerns. Dr. Ellie Farahmand is an experienced cosmetic dentist in Santa Monica and can transform your smile. If you are looking to enhance or repair your smile, take a look at what porcelain veneers can offer.

What Are Veneers for Teeth?

Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that cover the front of a tooth. The final restoration gets bonded to your natural tooth, hiding chips or stains. The front teeth are the most common teeth that undergo the porcelain veneers procedure.  

 These cosmetic restorations provide a long-term, durable solution to correcting imperfections with your smile. They can be used to make subtle changes or as part of complete smile makeovers.

Who Is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Most patients are candidates for dental veneers. If you have certain dental health problems, like extensive decay, severe misalignment, bruxism, or gum disease, you may need additional treatment before receiving your veneers. Patients suffering from severe bruxism, or teeth grinding, may not be good candidates for this procedure. 

At our premier Santa Monica dental clinic, we can evaluate your smile and determine whether veneers are right for your goals.

Santa Monica Dental Veneer Expert

Creating custom veneers is a meticulous and collaborative process at Santa Monica Dental Office. The journey begins with a consultation between the patient and Dr. Ellie Farahmand, a skilled cosmetic dentist. During this initial meeting, the patient discusses their cosmetic dentistry goals, and together with Dr. Ellie, they may decide that veneers are the solution.

Next, a digital scan of the patient's teeth is taken, serving as the foundation for the veneer creation. This digital scan is sent to a specialized dental lab for further customization. At the lab, professional photos are taken, and a ceramist focuses on shade matching. The color, translucency, brightness, and even the nuances that complement the patient's eye color and skin tone are considered to ensure the veneers look both natural and aesthetically pleasing.

Trial Period: “Test Drive” Your New Veneers

Collaboration continues as the lab and Dr. Ellie discuss the veneer design. The proposed design is then shared with the patient for approval. Only when the patient is satisfied with the proposed design does the process move forward.

Using a wax-up model created by the lab, Dr. Ellie fabricates temporary veneers that the patient can wear on a trial basis. This trial period allows the patient to provide valuable feedback regarding the veneers' length, shape, comfort, and overall appearance.

Adjustments are made based on the patient's feedback to ensure a perfect fit and appearance. Once the patient is completely satisfied with the temporary veneers, the lab proceeds to craft the permanent veneers, which are custom-made to the patient's specifications.

Passionate About Your Dream Smile

The creation of custom veneers involves careful planning, precise design, and continuous patient involvement. The temporary veneers serve as a crucial step in ensuring that the final product meets the patient's expectations, providing not only a stunning smile but also the confidence to wear it proudly. Dr. Ellie is proud to invest the extra time and effort it takes to achieve a patient’s dream smile.
