Encino, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2014
The Encino cosmetic dentist at Encino Esthetic Dental Group is now offering Lumineers and porcelain veneers. These restorations are an excellent alternative to more extensive procedures that require more preparation and greater loss of healthy tooth tissue. They work similarly and use porcelain tooth-shaped shells to conceal visible flaws on the tooth. Encino dentist Dr. Mastour and his colleague Dr. Sabbagh-Fard work closely with patients to ensure they offer the most appropriate treatment recommendations for each smile they treat.

Lumineers are designed to be bonded directly to the tooth. They require minimal or no preparation and can be used to lengthen small teeth, conceal minor stains and hide chips, cracks, worn enamel and similar flaws. Because they require so little preparation, most people can have them applied without the need for uncomfortable shots, and the treatment is completely reversible.
Porcelain veneers are similar but are often recommended for more extensive corrections. They can adjust the appearance of misaligned or closely spaced teeth, cover deep stains or discolorations and be used as part of a smile makeover. Veneers and Lumineers are both made of porcelain, which resists stains and can last for more than 15 years when carefully maintained. Most patients need only good dental hygiene and regular checkups to keep their smiles healthy.
