Beachwood Dental is honored to be a certified supplier of Lumineers, high-end porcelain veneers, that offer restoration to our Los Alamitos, CA patients. Lumineers are unique and higher quality than traditional veneers thanks to their sleek, thin design, customizability, and more natural-looking surface. Once placed onto the teeth, a patient's cosmetic flaws, such as chips, stains, irregular shape, or gaps can be concealed and restored. They are typically only placed on the front of the teeth and on the chewing surface in order to eliminate bulk. Lumineers are also easier to place onto the tooth and require very little preparation prior to the procedure, offering quick, longer-lasting, and natural results that our patients love. Our remarkable dentists would be happy to consult with each patient beforehand to evaluate their needs and offer custom-made veneers to brighten and improve their smile.
"Anyone who is hesitant about these five stars review, HAVE NO FEAR. I would 10/10 recommend this clinic to ANYONE who asks (or doesn't). I was in town for my wedding and I visited my dentist in the area to get my final Invisalign check/retainers. I also wanted to straighten out my front tooth because it had chipped in the Invisalign process since I used to bite my nails. It made me super self conscious especially since I was going to be taking a ton of photos for my wedding this weekend and it had been bothering me since I got my attachments taken off. I had asked my dental clinic if they could even it out, but the dentist was not in so they weren't able to do anything for me... I was definitely 110% freaking out and so so sad. My dental office referred me to Beachwood Dental and Dr. Todd answered the phone. He so willingly accepted me last minute and really tried to work around my hectic schedule. I was late since I was running last minute errands and didn't expect them to take me so quickly (I called Thursday early afternoon, they told me to come in later that afternoon!). They were still able to fit me in with such warm attitudes and smiles. Dr. Todd, Stacy, and everyone in the office were so lovely, really (& I definitely don't say that lightly). They were able to fix me up (I couldn't even tell the difference!!!) and sent me on my way. I am forever thankful to this awesome team and appreciate you all (even if Dr. Todd is a USC fan...GO BRUINS). Thank you, Beachwood Dental!!!!"- H.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018

"The hygienist only uses the "Scraponater" (the ultrasonic tooth cleaner/scraper) on the heavy deposits not for the whole cleaning job. That thing feels like I'm scraping my teeth on a blackboard. The cleaning job is almost always done completely by hand. Then there is the digital X-Ray machine. Precious little radiation compared to the regular kind and the view is almost 3D. Teeth all bright and shiny, quick and painless. What more can you ask for?"- D.K. / Yelp / Aug 18, 2018
What to Expect
Lumineers usually only take 2 visits to complete: first to prepare the teeth and make impressions, then a second visit to fit and bond the custom Lumineers. At the first visit, our dentist will take physical impressions of the upper and lower arches, as well as digital X-rays and photos, which will be sent to a Lumineers laboratory where the custom veneers will be created. Once the Lumineers are produced and returned to our office, the patient will return to have their veneers fitted. To secure the fit between the teeth and the veneers, our dentist will lightly etch the teeth before bonding the Lumineers to the teeth. Finally, our dentist will adjust the veneers as needed to ensure the teeth are aligned and comfortable.
With proper care, Lumineers can last up to 20 years. Since Lumineers are made with high-quality materials and properly fitted by our certified Lumineers dentists, patients do not need to limit what they eat and drink. Patients should continue a good home oral care routine, including brushing and flossing, and visiting our office for dental exams and cleanings. Patients can choose to have their Lumineers removed at any point without concern, since the Lumineers do not require grinding down the natural teeth before placement.
