If a picture is supposedly worth a thousand words, how much is a smile worth? If you feel confident about the appearance of your teeth and enjoy sharing your smile with others, then it’s likely worth quite a bit. If your teeth are cosmetically flawed, however, you may prefer to keep your smile to yourself. At the cosmetic dentistry office of Dr. Les Latner in Los Angeles, CA, men and women seeking radiant, picture-perfect smiles are invited to explore the possibilities afforded by porcelain veneers.
Advantages of Custom Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, beautifully crafted shells of dental porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are capable of correcting a wide variety of cosmetic flaws simultaneously, transforming your smile in as few as two visits to our office. Due to their material composition, porcelain veneers look and feel completely natural, even reflecting light in the same way that tooth enamel does.
Porcelain veneers are used to create an even, symmetrical, and flawless look, masking one or more of the following imperfections:
- Cracks or chips in enamel
- Deep stains and discoloration
- Uneven spacing or gaps
- Mild to moderate crowding or misalignment
- Teeth that are misshapen or too small in relation to surrounding teeth
Because porcelain naturally resists stains caused by dark foods and beverages, you’ll never have to worry about losing your revitalized new look.

What Are West Los Angeles Porcelain Veneers?
West Los Angeles porcelain veneers are custom designed, ultra-thin shells of tooth-colored materials placed over the front surface of your teeth to improve or correct cosmetic imperfections.
- First, you’ll come in for an initial consultation. Dr. Latner will discuss the cosmetic results you wish to achieve. You’ll get a full dental examination to ensure that West Los Angeles porcelain veneers are the most appropriate procedure for your situation. You may also get x-rays and impressions taken of your teeth.
- At the second visit, Dr. Latner will prepare your tooth for the veneer by removing about half a millimeter of enamel from the surface. This amount is equal to the thickness of the porcelain veneer to be placed. Next, Dr. Latner will make an impression of your tooth to be sent out to a dental lab for fabrication. The fabrication process can take a couple of weeks.
- At your final visit, Dr. Latner will place the porcelain veneer over your tooth to examine its fit and color; trimming the veneer if needed. Before the veneer is permanently bonded, your tooth will be cleaned, polished, and roughened to achieve a strong bond. Then, Dr. Latner will apply a special curing light to the veneer to activate the bonding cement. Finally, the excess bonding cement will be removed, your bite will be evaluated, and any final adjustments will be made. You may need to schedule a follow-up visit to ensure that your West Los Angeles porcelain veneer placement has been completely successful.

Are you so embarrassed of your smile that you hide it when you talk or laugh? Do the beautiful smiles you see on TV, at the movies, or in your favorite magazines just seem to make your feelings even worse? At Westside Dental Associates, a unique cosmetic solution can help you overcome these feelings to enjoy a better sense of self-confidence. It’s called porcelain veneers.
