A dazzling smile can light up a room and boost self-confidence, but not everyone is naturally blessed with perfect teeth. Dental veneers have become a popular and effective cosmetic solution for those looking to enhance their smile and achieve a flawless appearance. Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells bonded to the teeth' front surface to improve their appearance. At San Jose Smile Center Dr Howard Defaii, they are typically made from porcelain or composite resin, both of which are tooth-colored materials that blend seamlessly with natural teeth. Veneers can address various cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and minor misalignments.
Before placing the veneers, a small amount of enamel may be gently removed from the front surface of the teeth. This process ensures the veneers will adhere seamlessly and fit comfortably over the teeth. The amount of enamel removal is minimal and varies depending on the individual case. Once the teeth are prepared, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are a blueprint for crafting custom veneers in a dental laboratory. The fabrication typically takes a few weeks, during which temporary veneers may be placed to protect the prepared teeth.
Once your custom veneers are ready, you'll return for the final step of the procedure – veneer bonding. The dentist will place the veneers over your teeth to check their fit, shape, and color. Any necessary adjustments will be made at this stage. Once you and the dentist are satisfied with the appearance, the veneers will be permanently bonded to your teeth using a dental adhesive.
The veneer procedure is a transformative dental treatment that can significantly enhance your smile's appearance and boost your self-confidence. By choosing custom-made veneers, you can achieve a flawless smile that looks and feels natural.
