One fast method to improve your smile and conceal crooked, chipped, stained, or decayed teeth is using porcelain or composite veneers at LifeTime Smiles of OC. Porcelain veneers are light covers created with porcelain, which are secured to the front of the teeth to enhance the overall look of your smile. Similarly, composite veneers utilize composite resin (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to create an enhanced smile in a single visit to our facility. Offering personalized veneers and minimal prep, dentist Dr. Kareem Abraham will aid in improving the size, color, length, or shape of the teeth. Schedule a consultation in our Santa Ana, CA office to find out more information about veneers and decide if they are appropriate for your goals.

Porcelain veneers may be used to rapidly mask stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are poorly spaced or shaped. At LifeTime Smiles of OC, your porcelain veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. At your consultation, Dr. Abraham will listen to your objectives and concerns so he can personalize your procedure. Dr. Abraham may also find out whether you're a good candidate for porcelain veneers by checking the total health of your mouth. You shouldn't have symptoms of periodontal disease, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
What To Expect
As soon as you have decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Abraham, he will take impressions of your teeth. Your impressions will be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain. As soon as your porcelain veneers are prepared, Dr. Abraham will take off a little bit of enamel from your teeth. This allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are secured, Dr. Abraham can make small adjustments so that your veneers are comfortable.
Composite veneers are created in a single appointment. They also do not require as much prep work as other popular types of veneers. Dr. Abraham will artfully sculpt the composite resin material to your teeth before polishing the teeth for a natural and restored appearance. Once your veneers are bonded, Dr. Abraham can make minor adjustments to ensure your comfort and desired appearance.
Since getting veneers normally does not require anesthesia, you ought to be able to continue your daily tasks following your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to cold and hot meals for a couple of days, but that should fade away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are stain resistant compared to the natural teeth, you still need to stay away from staining drinks and food to keep your veneers from becoming discolored. To prevent harming your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice. Continue to make dental examinations and cleanings at LifeTime Smiles of OC so that we can track the condition of your veneers, teeth, gums, and general oral health. Dr. Abraham will tell you if your cosmetic veneers need to be replaced or repaired.
Veneers are an elective treatment so they are usually not paid for by dental insurance. LifeTime Smiles of OC does take many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to help make your veneers more affordable. During your consultation, Dr. Abraham will personalize your treatment to meet your needs and budget. He will discuss a quote for your veneers and explore your payment choices.
