Isn't it about time you treated yourself to the smile you've always wanted? If you don't like the way your smile looks, you'll want to veneersconsider porcelain veneers. South Pasadena, CA, dentists, Dr. John Chu and Dr. Mary Lin, explain how veneers can enhance your smile.

A simple way to change your smile

Slipcovers are the ideal solution if your couch is stained or torn. After you carefully arrange the new cover, no one will ever know what problems lurk underneath. Porcelain veneers are just as effective at hiding the little flaws that affect tooth enamel. Because they're no thicker than a fingernail, veneers are very light and comfortable. Custom-made veneers are attached to the fronts of teeth with dental cement and easily conceal many dental imperfections.

No more gaps

No matter how small they are, gaps between your teeth can make you feel a little self-conscious. After your new veneers are applied at our South Pasadena office, you'll soon forget you even had any spaces in your smile.

An easy way to brighten dull teeth

Do you sipping on coffee throughout the day? The dark pigments in certain beverages, such as coffee, tea, wine and cola, can stain teeth. Teeth whitening treatments offer one way to lighten your smile, but whitening results only last a few years. Porcelain veneers provide a long-lasting, stain-resistant alternative to teeth whitening. A single veneer can also be used to improve the appearance of one tooth that has darkened due to taking tetracycline or as a result of dental procedure.

Damage disappears

Wear and tear on your teeth can cause cracks and chips. Your new veneers will transform your smile by concealing minor damage that can mar your smile.

Veneers lengthen teeth

A discrepancy in the length of your teeth can have a big impact on your smile. Often the problems occur if you grind your teeth at night. Grinding wears down tooth enamel, shortening teeth. In addition to lengthening your teeth with veneers, you'll also want to wear a nightguard while you sleep to prevent further enamel erosion or a cracked veneer.
