A beautiful smile can significantly boost one's self-confidence and overall appearance. For those seeking a smile transformation, dental veneers offer a remarkable solution. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells covering the front surface of the teeth, enhancing their aesthetics and creating a radiant smile.
At La Jolla Dental Group: Mehrack Kajian-Faraji, DDS, we offer patients dental veneers made from durable materials like porcelain or composite resin that look and feel like natural teeth. Using veneers to cover the front surface of teeth, we can improve their appearance, including shape, size, color, and alignment. Veneers are a versatile and effective solution for various cosmetic dental concerns, such as chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth.
The Benefits of Dental Veneers
One of the primary benefits of dental veneers is their ability to enhance your smile's aesthetics dramatically. They can correct a wide range of imperfections, including discoloration, chips, cracks, and gaps, resulting in a more symmetrical and harmonious smile.
Veneers are crafted to mimic the translucency and texture of natural teeth. They are customized to match the color, shape, and size of your existing teeth, ensuring seamless integration with your smile. The result is a natural-looking smile that enhances your overall facial aesthetics.
Compared to other cosmetic dental procedures, veneers require minimal alteration of the natural tooth structure. The dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front surface of the teeth to accommodate the veneers. This conservative approach helps preserve the integrity of the underlying tooth structure.
Porcelain veneers are highly resistant to stains, allowing you to enjoy a bright and radiant smile for years. They are less prone to discoloration compared to natural teeth or composite resin veneers, providing long-lasting results.
The Veneer Placement Procedure
To accommodate the veneers, a small amount of enamel is gently removed from the front surface of the teeth. This ensures a proper fit and seamless integration of the veneers. Local anesthesia may be used to ensure your comfort during this process.
After the teeth are prepared, impressions will be taken to create molds for fabricating your custom veneers. These molds are sent to a dental laboratory where skilled technicians craft your veneers. In the meantime, temporary veneers may be placed to protect your prepared teeth.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to our dental office for their placement. The dentist will ensure a precise fit, making any necessary adjustments for optimal aesthetics and alignment. The veneers will be bonded to the teeth using a special dental adhesive, creating a secure and long-lasting bond.
