What if we told you, there is a way to correct and enhance the appearance of your smile without going through a lengthy procedure? If this is what you’re looking for, you may want to consider our porcelain veneers. Veneers are one of the least intimidating dental procedures, and our very own Dr. Dilber Sraon and his team of professionals will ensure your comfort throughout the process. You won’t need a reason to fear trips to the dentist!
What Are Veneers?
Now of course, you would want to know what something is before we put it on your teeth! As the name implies, porcelain veneers are ultra-fine shells of tooth-colored porcelain or composite which fit over the surface of your teeth to correct issues such as worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment or spacing, chips and cracks, and discoloration. At our practice, we opt for porcelain because of its superior components compared to other materials. Even though veneers fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry because they give smile a beautiful makeover, they have a practical component as well. They function the same way as normal teeth, while their durability offers protection.
How Does the Process Work?
Our dentist, Dr. Dilber Sraon will administer an anesthetic to make you comfortable. Then, your teeth will be slightly reshaped with a device called a bur to prepare them for the veneers. After this, Dr. Sraon will make a mold of your teeth, from which your veneers will be uniquely manufactured. Once the veneers are made, each one is bonded to your tooth. After the bonding is completed, your new veneers will function just like your regular teeth, with the added benefit of you not needing to worry about damaging or staining your natural teeth.
The Benefits of Veneers
Veneers were nicknamed the “Hollywood smile” for their aesthetic quality. One of the major benefits of veneers is how drastically they improve your smile without the use of lengthy dental procedures which significantly alter your teeth. They can correct all forms of imperfections such as tooth chips, gaps, discoloration, and misshapen or crooked teeth. Another benefit is the fact that while they may look and function like natural teeth, they are not. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about damaging your natural teeth.
Are You a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?
Dr. Sraon will see you for a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for veneers. In order to be eligible, you must be in sound oral health, and it must be determined that veneers are truly the best option for you. While veneers are simple and less invasive than many other dental procedures, they do require the irreversible shaping of your teeth, so it is important to be sure this option is right for you. If you live in San Jose, California, or surrounding areas, it would be worth your time to stop by our office to explore options and talk to Dr. Sraon about enhancing your smile with veneers.
