Veneers in Livermore, CA

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that bond to your teeth' facial side to cover cosmetic imperfections and create a more aesthetically pleasing smile. While getting veneers is a minimally invasive procedure, they require a small amount of enamel to be removed from the teeth they cover so that the veneers fit properly. Once bonded to your teeth, they are virtually indistinguishable from regular teeth and can last for many years with proper maintenance and care. At Smiles by Design, veneers are an excellent option for patients with minor cosmetic flaws in their smiles.

The procedure for veneers

Veneers are thin, custom-made shells covering teeth' fronts to improve their cosmetic appearance. They are made from tooth-colored materials and are cemented in place after a small amount of enamel is removed. When done correctly, veneers can last for many years.

Veneers can be used for one or more purposes, such as correcting the appearance of misaligned or crooked teeth and discolored whitening teeth. They can also be used to make minor adjustments to the size and shape of a tooth, as well as the length of a tooth.

The dentist will first examine the patient’s smile to determine if they are a good candidate for veneers. Then the dentist will take an impression of the patient’s mouth and send the impression to a lab to create the veneers. When the veneers are ready, the patient will return to the dental office to have them placed. The procedure is simple and painless; patients can return home the same day and immediately enjoy their beautiful new smiles!

The advantages of veneers

Veneers are typically made of porcelain or resin composites to match your tooth color closely. They cover the front of your teeth to hide chips, cracks, discolorations, and other imperfections. This makes them a good choice for correcting cosmetic issues related to uneven teeth, worn enamel, and mild misalignment.

Veneers offer several advantages over other cosmetic dentistry procedures.

  • Improved confidence in smiling
  • A more attractive smile
  • Protection from future damage
  • Less tooth sensitivity
  • Quick treatment process
  • Little to no preparation is required before placement
  • Long-lasting results
