How Veneers Can Give You a Celebrity Smile

How Veneers Can Give You a Celebrity Smile

Do you envy the smiles you see in magazines or movies? If you’ve ever wished you were born with the perfect teeth of celebrities, we’ve got a secret to share — they probably weren’t born with perfect teeth either.

One of the most common cosmetic dental treatments in the country involves veneers. And there’s a reason why they’re so popular. They don’t just fix damage; they conceal imperfections.

Dr. Daniel Park uses dental veneers to transform smiles at Beaumont Cherry Valley Dental in Beaumont, California. Here’s how this cosmetic treatment can give you a celebrity smile, too.

The transformative power of veneers

Unlike more extensive dental treatments, veneers provide dramatic results immediately. That’s because they cover the visible portion of the tooth with a porcelain or composite resin shell.

This approach enables Dr. Park to fix a single tooth or several to improve the overall appearance of your smile.

Veneers can correct many problems, including:

Veneers can also solve staining and discoloration issues that don’t respond to professional whitening.

Best of all, Dr. Park can assess your teeth and apply veneers in two appointments, and there’s no downtime.

What to expect when getting veneers

Getting veneers usually takes two appointments — an initial consultation and the application.

Initial consultation

During your first appointment, Dr. Park discusses your tooth concerns and performs a dental exam to ensure you’re a good candidate for veneers. He also guides you through the process and helps you choose the shape and color of your new veneers.

If you decide to proceed with veneers, Dr. Park prepares your teeth by removing a tiny amount of enamel from the surface and shaping them. Then, he takes impressions. This step guarantees a perfect fit for your custom-made veneers without added bulk.

Finally, Dr. Park sends your specifications to an off-site lab that manufactures veneers.

The application

It usually takes 1-2 weeks to craft veneers. When complete, you return to Beaumont Cherry Valley Dental for fitting and placement.

During this appointment, Dr. Park thoroughly cleans your teeth and applies your veneers, bonding them securely in place with a special dental cement. Then, he polishes them up and fine-tunes their shape, leaving you with a celebrity smile. 

Once you’re done, you can resume regular activities immediately — even eating and drinking. And it’s easy to care for your new smile. All you have to do is brush regularly, avoid whitening products, and floss.

To protect your veneers long-term, Dr. Park also recommends being careful with crunchy or hard foods. Instead of biting directly into them, he suggests cutting them up and chewing them with your back teeth.

Last but not least, don’t forget to keep up with regular dental visits for professional cleanings. When cared for properly, your new celebrity smile should last 10-15 years.
