If you find yourself avoiding family photos or hiding your smile as you laugh or speak, you’re not alone. Millions of US adults report experiencing low confidence due to the chips, cracks, and gaps in their smile. At Southland Smiles, we offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions to help patients achieve a picture-perfect smile. Porcelain veneers, thin sheaths of tooth-colored material placed over the front surfaces of teeth, are a popular solution for those patients who want to change the size or shape of the smile, conceal numerous flaws, or improve the overall appearance of their smiles, veneers offer a simple treatment that delivers a complete smile transformation. Patients who choose cosmetic veneers will need to plan for two appointment. During the initial appointment, we prepare the teeth by removing a small layer of enamel from the front surface of teeth. We capture impressions of the prepared teeth. Then, we place temporary veneers. A trusted dental lab will craft your veneer, and once we receive the veneer from our lab, you’ll return to exchange the temporary for a flawless uniquely crafted porcelain veneer.
