What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are the gold standard for a smile transformation. They typically last for twenty years or longer and do not stain or change color with coffee, tea, or red wine.
Not All Porcelain Veneers Are Created Equal.
I have learned the skills necessary over the past eleven years during my accreditation process with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, to deliver the most natural looking and healthiest results possible.
The Most Important Factors In Attaining The Best Results Possible With Porcelain Veneeers.
1. Making sure that the veneers look natural.
2. Enhancing gum health rather than preventing it.
3. Veneers are made with the least amount of tooth shaving possible.
During my accreditation process, I learned how to create ideal gum health with porcelain veneers by placing them exactly at the gum line and not beneath the gums. Many dentists leave patients with veneers buried under the gums causing constant bleeding and inflammation.
Porcelain Veneers Can Be A Highly Invasive Process If Performed By A Dentist Who Does Not Have Training In Minimally Invasive Dentistry.
Many dentists aggressively shave down teeth for porcelain veneers because they have not developed the skill required for non-invasive smile enhancement. Just take a look online and see pictures posted by patients who have discovered their teeth shaved down to nubs after they take a look in the mirror before the porcelain veneers are placed.
Many dentists also work with lab technicians who do not have the training or expertise to create natural looking and healthy porcelain veneers. My lab technicians are experts in minimally invasive dentistry and can design a natural looking healthy veneer with the least amount of teeth contouring possible. They create the veneers by hand in Los Angeles, are Accredited and Fellowed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and have gone through the same rigorous process of cosmetic training for lab technicians. Their porcelain veneers have been approved by the highest standards in the world for cosmetic dentistry.
Benefits Of Porcelain Veneers

4. Smile With Confidence Knowing Gums Are Healthy And Teeth Look Natural
Drawbacks Of Porcelain Veneers
1. Some Tooth Shaving Is Usually Required
2. Waiting Period For 4-6 Weeks Between Temporaries and Cementation
3. If Fracture Occurs Remake Is Necessary By Lab
Any Generl Dentist Can Call Themselves A Cosmetic Dentist Legally And Perform Porcelain Veneers On Their Patients.
Dentists such as myself who have gone through the accreditation process with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (420 dentists world wide), have had their porcelain veneers judged and approved to the highest standard in the world. Many of these accredited dentists such as myself have the training to deliver minimally invasive porcelain veneers.
