At Dr. Jose-Luis Ruiz, DDS & Associates, Inc., we can completely transform the color, shape, and overall appearance of your smile when you come to our office for dental veneers in Burbank, California. Also known as instant orthodontics, these tooth-colored shells can eliminate gaps, whiten teeth, and even correct minor bite problems. Our dentists also provide Smile Shaper veneers, which are not only very durable, but thin enough that Dr. Ruiz & Associates do not need to remove tooth structure for their application. Call our office to learn more about our dental veneer options.
Veneers are very thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Our dentist may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for enhancing your smile because the color and translucence of porcelain is a great match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Porcelain is stain resistant as well, so your smile will stay bright for years to come. Resin veneers can also be matched to your natural tooth color. With dental veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you will love to show off.
Our dentist may recommend dental veneers if you would like to improve the appearance of your smile. Custom-made veneers can be used for just one tooth or for your entire smile. We may suggest veneers to:
- Close large spaces and gaps between teeth
- Whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored
- Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
- Correct slightly crooked teeth
- Restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn, or fractured
We invite you to call or visit our office today to learn more about custom dental veneers and how we can enhance your smile. We look forward to hearing from you!
Dr. Ruiz's excellent work has stood to the end of time.
A few of Dr. Ruiz's Before and After's
Porcelain Veneers require great skill and artistry
1 month ago a 23-year-old patient started Porcelain Veneers procedure with great excitement, unfortunately, what happened from there created a very traumatizing experience. Although she expected her teeth not to be drilled too much for veneers, what she saw after drilling was very painful to her (Fig 2). This was made much worse because her temporary veneers and final veneers did not look anything like she was hoping for (Fig 1)
After multiple unhappy visits, the patient ended up switching dentists. She did her homework, researching for a recognized expert in cosmetic dentistry and veneers. Dr. Ruiz has performed thousands of successful porcelain veneers cases for people in the entertainment industry.
15 years ago a patient in her mid-40s started Porcelain Veneers with amazing enthusiasm and will, regrettably, what happened created a very unpleasing experience. She expected her natural teeth to not be drilled too much for veneers, what she saw after the drilling made her internally ill (Fig 2). What made the situation much worse was that her temporary veneers did not look anything close to what she was wanting (Fig 1).
After doing the right research the patient ended up switching dentists. What she found was a recognized expert in cosmetic dentistry and veneers which has performed thousands of successful Porcelain Veneer cases.
