Using Customized Dental Shells to Correct and Improve Smile Imperfections

Do you want your smile to be different than what you see in the mirror? If so, your ideal and flawless smile is only a few short visits away! At Sunshine Dental Group, we offer dental veneers in El Monte, California, to correct a variety of dental imperfections and help you achieve your perfect smile.

Dental veneers are a shell-like covering that are placed over your natural tooth to conceal imperfections such as cracks, small gaps, discoloration, chips and more. Each dental veneer is custom-made with porcelain to fit your unique teeth and match your natural tooth color.

To start off, Dr. Jorge de la Osa or one of his associate dentists will sit with you and discuss your goals for your smile. We will also examine your mouth to diagnose any additional issues that can be resolved with dental veneers. This allows us to create your personalized treatment.
During your second visit, our dentists will carefully remove the outermost surface of the teeth that are receiving veneers. This gives the teeth a rougher surface, which ultimately helps the veneers adhere more permanently. Next, we will take an impression of your teeth that will be used to make the customized shape, size and color of your veneers.

The impressions and specifications for your veneers will then be sent to an off-site dental lab, where they will be created. This process takes about two weeks. Once your veneers are done, you will return to our office, and we will place your veneers with a dental adhesive. And just like that, your smile is transformed into something magnificent!
