Veneers thin layer of material that is placed over a tooth or a set of teeth with the purpose to help improve the look of teeth, protect the surface from any damage and provide an immediate smile transformation.
Why use veneers?
Veneers offer a perfect way to redesign and transform your smile. The process is painless and will permanently perfect your smile. Veneers are made from thin ceramic shells that are placed over your teeth to cover structural or cosmetic issues. Candidates who are considering veneers usually are looking to tackle these issues:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misalignment of teeth
There is a number of different veneers, but the most popular is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain and are often used to help recreate natural looking teeth. They also offer the same strength and durability similar to natural teeth.
What is the process of placing veneers?
The first step would be to determine if veneers are the right option for you. On your first visit our dentist at Oxnard Dental will carefully examine your teeth and oral health. The dentist will then discuss the patient’s goals so that the dentist can determine the best treatment for the patient. Once finalizing the plan the dentist will then begin with the preparation phase and have your tooth ready for the placement of veneers. To begin the process, an impression of the teeth will be taken and sent to our dental lab where the final product will be made. In the meantime while the veneers are being fabricated, we provide our patients with a temporary veneer. The temporary veneer is placed over the existing tooth. Once the veneer is ready, the temporary will be replaced by the finished veneer. After only two to three visits your smile will be changed into your dream smile, lasting you for many years to come.
