What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an effective and safe method of creating the ideal smile for you. They are thin porcelain facings that are bonded to the front of your teeth, used to change the shape, color, size and spacing of your teeth. When properly installed, veneers can transform almost any imperfections into your dream smile within a matter of weeks.
Porcelain veneer procedure
In the interest of providing among the best porcelain veneers Ventura has available, Anacapa has a unique approach when it comes to porcelain veneers. After your private consultation—where your goals with the procedure are understood and discussed—you will get fitted for your veneers. Dr. Jivraj and his team will take impressions of your mouth and photos in order to make a wax model. From there, Dr. Jivraj will adjust this model until it is shaped into what you consider the ideal smile for your face.
Once you are pleased with the results of the wax model, the Anacapa dental lab will create temporary veneers that you will wear for about two to three weeks, a step that a lot of dentists will skip. This is a “test drive” of sorts, giving you and Dr. Jivraj time to see what works about your new smile and how your final veneers are going to look before being cemented into place. This small yet vitally important step is one of the many reasons why Dr. Jivraj is known to deliver among the best porcelain veneers Ventura has available.
When you get your porcelain veneers installed, they are permanent fixtures. There is no going back without a full revision procedure. By making temporary veneers, you can see what your future permanent smile is going to look and feel like. Most dentists do not usually perform these additional steps. In veneers procedures performed by other dentists, after impressions are made, a lab will make the veneers where they are then installed, permanently. Dr. Jivraj and his Anacapa Dental Art Institute takes this extra step to ensure you will be happy with your final look.
Best of all, this added perk is at no additional cost to you.
Once you are happy and comfortable with the look of your future smile, Dr. Jivraj and his expert team will install the permanent fixtures.
