Veneers Q & A

What are dental veneers?

Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that Dr. Kim bonds to the front of your teeth. Sometimes called porcelain laminates, dental veneers improve your smile by correcting the shape and color of your teeth, closing gaps, and addressing alignment issues. Veneers also give your teeth a more uniform appearance. The main purpose of veneers is to improve the appearance of your smile, making you look healthier and younger.

How do you apply veneers to my teeth?

First, make an appointment with Dr. Kim to talk about your concerns and expectations for your smile. He provides a comprehensive consultation to determine if your teeth are healthy enough for veneers and to ensure they are the best way to fix your smile.

The installation of veneers typically takes two visits. During your first visit, Dr. Kim prepares your teeth for the veneers by cleaning them and removing a very thin layer of tooth enamel so the veneers fit flush against your teeth. He then takes impressions of your teeth and gums and sends them to a lab, where the veneers are custom-made for your teeth. Dr. Kim fits you with temporary veneers until your permanent veneers are ready.

During your second visit, Dr. Kim bonds the permanent veneers to your teeth, ensuring the correct fit. He polishes the veneers to create a natural shine so that they look natural in your mouth.

What are the benefits of dental veneers?

Veneers are popular dental treatments because of the beautiful and natural appearance they create. They are also very strong and, with proper cleaning and care, can last for a long time. Veneers are stain-resistant, and Dr. Kim can order them tinted to match your other teeth.

How do I take care of my veneers?

You take care of your veneers the same way you take care of your natural teeth. Brush your teeth after meals and floss at least once a day. You should also have regular checkups and professional cleanings every six months.

At Hoover Dental Center, Dr. Soo Kim and Dr. Alexander Yuen provide Veneers Services in the Greater Los Angeles Area, including Pico-Union, Koreatown, Downtown Los Angeles, and other surrounding areas.
