If stained, misshaped, or crooked teeth have left you less than happy with your smile, veneers can help. Veneers let you personalize your smile by improving the appearance of teeth with cosmetic issues. Veneers are available at Davis Smile Center in Davis, where Dr. Jafar Afkham can transform your smile into one you’ll love.
A veneer is a thin cover placed on the surface of a tooth for the purpose of dramatically improving its appearance. Veneers give problem teeth a flawless new look. They can conceal a variety of imperfections, including:
- Cracks and chips
- Stains and discolorations
- Rough or uneven surfaces
- Slight gaps between teeth
- Misaligned or oddly shaped teeth
Various materials can be used to create veneers. However, porcelain tends to be a popular option because it so closely resembles the look of tooth enamel. Once in place, veneers look completely natural. All anyone will notice is your beautiful smile.
It generally takes three appointments to complete the process of getting veneers. The initial appointment involves treatment planning to determine which teeth require veneers. The next visit involves preparing. During this visit, a mold will be taken of the teeth and used to fabricate the veneers. The teeth will also be prepped by removing a small layer of enamel so the veneers will sit flush with the surrounding teeth. Finally, the veneers can be bonded to the affected teeth at the third appointment.
Benefits of Veneers
Porcelain veneers offer several benefits. They can enhance the appearance of teeth with a wide range of cosmetic concerns. Additionally, veneers look just like your natural teeth, only better. Veneers also function like regular teeth and can be used to bite into your favorite foods without worrying about the coming off. Finally, another benefit of veneers is that they can be cared for the same way you care for your natural teeth. The skilled dentist at our office in Davis can determine if veneers are an option for you.
