Dental Veneers in Torrance: Fact Versus Fiction

There are a lot of rumors going around about what exactly dental veneers do. We like to keep things casual and open at Dr. Joe Dentistry in Torrance. So, we’re going to give you the facts.

Dental Veneers TorranceMyth 1: I have to get porcelain veneers for my whole mouth.

Although a lot of patients choose to get full porcelain veneers to maximize their transformation, you don’t have to. Your treatment goals are unique to your mouth and desired results. Dr. Joe is supportive and does not pressure patients.

As a skilled cosmetic dentist, Dr. Joe can treat you appropriately. Veneers can straighten teeth, make gaps less visible and fix a cracked, chipped or otherwise unsightly tooth.

If you just need them for a couple of teeth, we can match your veneer shape and shade to surrounding teeth for a flawless, natural look.

Our goal is to produce natural, beautiful results in every cosmetic procedure.

Myth 2: It’s like getting all of your teeth replaced or dentures.

It’s common for people to confuse dental veneers with implants and dentures. They’re all very different. When you get dental veneers with us in Torrance, you’re getting your teeth professionally shaped. Dr. Joe doesn’t remove your teeth. Your veneers are designed to fit well in your mouth, but they’re merely fused to your current teeth.

Myth 3: You have to go to the dentist all of the time.

Porcelain veneers are slightly less durable than your actual teeth, so it is possible to crack them. However, aside from sucking on hard candy instead of chomping away, there’s little difference between their upkeep and your teeth now. You can brush and floss as normal and only need to come in for your normal dental checkups.
