Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a minimally invasive method for improving the look of your smile and one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. They’re thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently bonded to the front of your teeth, where they cover up cosmetic imperfections. 

Veneers are typically made from either composite resin or porcelain, which has a color and translucency that’s similar to your natural tooth enamel. This leaves your veneers-enhanced smile looking natural as it is beautiful.

What conditions do veneers treat?

Veneers can be used to treat a wide range of cosmetic conditions. By covering up the entire front side of your teeth, veneers effectively mask: 

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Stains that don’t respond to professional whitening treatments
  • Worn teeth

Veneers can also give you a more even and uniform smile by correcting teeth that are:

  • Widely spaced 
  • Crooked 
  • Misshapen 

Veneers are also occasionally used for non-cosmetic purposes, like reinforcing a tooth to protect it from further damage.

What is the process for getting veneers?

Your journey toward a more beautiful smile with veneers begins with a consultation at San Ramon Family Dental. You and your dentist discuss your cosmetic goals and the details of your dream smile. Your dentist then works with you to pick a size, shape, and color for your veneers that best compliments your face and enhances your features.

Next, your dentist numbs your mouth with a local anesthetic and prepares your teeth by shaving off a very thin layer of enamel from the front side. Once your teeth are prepared, the dental team takes an impression of your mouth. They send that impression off to a lab that designs and fabricates your veneers to fit perfectly in your smile.

You wear a set of temporary veneers while you wait for your permanent ones to come back from the lab. Once your permanent veneers are ready, you go back to the office to have them permanently bonded to your teeth, giving you a beautiful new smile that you’ll be proud to share.
