Dental veneers have long been a popular cosmetic choice for those seeking a complete smile makeover. And while they are less invasive than some other cosmetic options, traditional veneers still require a substantial portion of your tooth enamel to be removed to facilitate their attachment.
The dental office of Dr. Helm, Dr. Nejad and Dr. Stanley in Beverly Hills is dedicated to biomimetic dental practices whenever viable, and this includes the placement of dental veneers. In fact, dental veneers that are placed following the biomimetic dental methodology are better than their standard counterparts for a number of reasons.
Patients Keep More Tooth Enamel
Instead of removing valuable layers of tooth enamel to prepare for placement, biomimetic porcelain veneers require much less tooth preparation. This includes removing only a bare minimum of tooth enamel. Your teeth keep most of their natural protective covering. This helps keep damage and decay from occurring.
Patients’ Teeth are Stronger
Biomimetic porcelain veneers do not compromise the strength of your teeth; in fact, they add another layer of protection over the front surfaces. Not only are your natural teeth not weakened to prepare for veneers, they take on an additional shield against damage and decay.
Patients Enjoy a More Stable Dental Foundation
A biomimetic dentist always seeks to maintain a stable foundation of natural teeth. By not removing much of your enamel, and by adding a porcelain shield to your tooth with a strong bonding agent, you are left with incredibly strong and beautiful teeth. Instead of risking the health and stability of your teeth for cosmetic reasons, biomimetic veneers provide increased beauty and strength for many years to come.
Applying Your Biomimetic Porcelain Veneers
After a dental consultation with Dr. Helm, Dr. Nejad or Dr. Stanley, during which you both agree that biomimetic dental veneers are a good choice for your needs, your teeth will be prepared for placing the veneers. What amounts to a light buffing is all that is necessary to prepare your teeth to bond correctly with the porcelain shields.
Using digital photography and 3D impressions, your Beverly Hills dentist can plan every detail of your veneer placements, and even show you a simulation of the completed procedure. This allows us to create dental porcelain veneers that match your teeth and mouth precisely, for a superior fit and appearance.
Dr. Nejad and our team works with the top ceramists in the world to produce only the strongest and most natural-looking porcelain veneers. When they are ready for placement, our dentists use superior cementing and adhesion techniques to bond the porcelain shells to your teeth. The result is a smile makeover that can last over 30 years.
