What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers provide a total smile makeover. If you’re self-conscious about your smile or concerned about years of wear and tear on your teeth, porcelain veneers are a transformative solution. Dental veneers are a common treatment for imperfections in the teeth. A veneer is a thin shell that is carefully placed over the existing tooth. There is no need to extract your natural teeth. Rather, a veneer is bonded on top of each tooth, creating a flawless surface appearance. Dr. Laurence Rifkin has spent years studying facial anatomy and cosmetic dental medicine, helping him craft some of the best dental veneers.
Understanding Dental Veneers
Dental veneers consist of a very thin, nearly translucent layer of material - typically porcelain - that fits precisely over the existing tooth. Porcelain best matches the natural color of teeth, making it the most sought-after choice for dental veneers. The best veneers precisely match the shape and color of your natural teeth, correcting for any flaws. Once created, veneers are carefully placed onto teeth.
Veneers are the perfect intervention to correct for:
- Tooth discoloration
- Irregular tooth length
- Broken, chipped, or otherwise damaged teeth
- Chronic wear and tear on teeth
- Irregular gaps between teeth
- Teeth that are misshapen or uneven
- Any dental problem that impacts the tooth’s surface
During your initial visit, Dr. Rifkin will meet with you to discuss your concerns and unique needs. He will perform a thorough assessment of your dental health, including options to improve the appearance of your smile. As a top veneers dentist, Dr. Rifkin uses only the most state-of-the-art materials and methods to place veneers. He has spent decades perfecting his Rifkin Method approach, ensuring that he meets patients’ needs and provides them with a transformative experience.
Dental Veneers Before & After
"Every time I've been to a dentist in the past 10 years, the first thing they'd say to me is "Oh your teeth are extremely stained, you're going to need dental veneers". Needless to say, I was very self conscious about my teeth. A friend told me Dr. Rifkin was the best dental veneers dentist in Beverly Hills. Dr. Rifkin was amazing! He didn't make me feel bad or self conscious about my teeth, instead made me feel great about the results to come. My dental veneers have truly changed my life. I smile & laugh way more now & I no longer agonize over my teeth. He really does make the best dental veneers Beverly Hills can provide." - Sean M.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Me?
The best way to determine whether dental veneers are right for you is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Rifkin. Dr. Rifkin has seen over 70,000 patients, making him a leader at diagnostic assessment and treatment planning. He will carefully study not only your teeth but your facial anatomy to create the best solution for you. Veneers are an excellent choice for individuals with discoloration, staining, chips, cracks, irregular tooth size, effects of tooth grinding, worn teeth, or irregular gaps in tooth spacing.
What is the Difference Between Porcelain Veneers and Resin Composite?
Patients often wonder about the benefits and drawbacks of porcelain veneers compared to resin composite. Although resin composite veneers are less expensive than porcelain, they can result in a less natural appearance and may become stained over time. In contrast, porcelain veneers are very thin, extraordinarily strong, and highly resistant to staining. With proper care, porcelain veneers are an investment that will last 10 to 15 years or longer. They are also a conservative intervention, involving minimal removal of existing tooth structure. Thus, veneers protect the natural integrity of your tooth roots and overall tooth structure.
Most importantly, porcelain veneers look very natural. As a near translucent material, porcelain veneers mimic the characteristics of the underlying enamel. The result is a flawless smile that looks more natural than resin composite.
How Do I Choose the Best Dental Veneers?
When it comes to choosing a cosmetic dentist to provide the best dental veneers, it is important to find someone who has dedicated his or her entire life to the craft. Dr. Rifkin's unique "Rifkin Method" is more than a dental treatment: it is an entire dental experience. From initial consultation to watching you flash your brand new smile after treatment, Dr. Rifkin is dedicated to helping his patients achieve the smile of their dreams.
A Customized Approach Sets Dr. Rifkin Apart
Most cosmetic dentists create molds of teeth and send them off to a dental lab to create veneers. Not only can this be inefficient, but it also leaves the process vulnerable to errors. Outsourcing the veneer creation process often results in veneers that are not quite correct when it comes to color or shape.
In contrast, Dr. Rifkin applies an artisanal approach to every patient’s veneers. Dr. Rifkin has invested in an in-house laboratory, and he keeps a professional dental ceramist on staff to craft the dental pieces. With an artist’s sensibility, Dr. Rifkin applies his sculpture skills to create the most natural, best fitting dental veneers. Patients are consistently amazed by the quality and color matching of Dr. Rifkin’s custom veneers.
Following custom creation of dental veneers by Dr. Rifkin and his dental ceramist, he will place the veneers over your existing teeth. Dental veneers must be bonded in place, requiring extraordinary skill and precision. Dr. Rifkin’s eye for detail and use of microscope technology to place dental veneers helps him achieve superior results.
