Do chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth make you self-conscious about your smile? Dental veneers are one of the simplest, most effective ways to help transform your smile.
At Allure Dental Center, we want our patients to love their smiles. If you’re ready to stop feeling self-conscious when you smile, dental veneers could be the option you’re looking for. Veneers are simple and are designed to look like natural teeth, so your smile can shine without a lot of intensive dental treatment or tooth pain.
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are cosmetic dental restorations that cover the front surface of a single tooth or of multiple teeth.
These thin covers, usually made of porcelain, are adhered to your teeth in order to improve their shape and/or protect them from damage.
At Allure Dental Center we offer two different types of dental veneers:
Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers can be an excellent solution if your teeth are crooked, chipped, stained, or have gaps in between them. Veneers are applied to the front of your teeth to provide a whiter, flawless smile.
Dental veneers do require some tooth preparation, but our dentists are gentle and will discuss the best options for preserving your healthy teeth with you.
Prepless Dental Veneers
This type of dental veneer is made from ceramic instead of porcelain. Like traditional porcelain veneers, the prepless veneers are bonded to the front surface of you teeth.
However, this type of veneers typically doesn't require our dentists to remove any of your tooth's enamel before application. Most of our dental patients don't even need a local anesthetic!
Will Veneers Damage My Teeth?
Definitely not! This is a common question many patients have about dental veneers. Veneers will not damage your teeth as long as your treatment is completed by a properly-trained cosmetic dentist.
At Allure Dental Center, Drs. Trinh Lee and Suzanna Lee are regarded as some of the top cosmetic dentists in the Bay Area and are accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
To prepare your teeth for a traditional dental veneer, we will need to remove about 1/2 millimeter of enamel from surface of your tooth. This is nearly equal to the thickness of your veneers.
Our dental team will discuss with you a choice of using a local anesthetic to numb the area before removing this small amount of enamel to make sure you're as comfortable as possible.
Are Dental Veneers Right For Your Smile?
Dental veneers are often the right choice for patients who have:
- Misshapen teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Gap(s) between teeth
- Grey or discolored teeth
Dental veneers are an ideal cosmetic approach to restoring youth to your smile. Over the years, teeth can become stained, chipped, and damaged - even if you brush, floss, and have regular checkups. Everyday activities like eating and drinking can eventually degrade the enamel of the teeth.
Dental veneers cover imperfections in your teeth, creating a perfect smile.
