Enhance your smile with ceramic veneers

Patients looking for treatment for conditions such as crooked teeth, permanently stained teeth, or even gapped teeth near the front of the smile have a few different options to consider. That includes ceramic veneers. Dental veneers are an outstanding solution for disguising imperfections on the teeth near the front of the smile and may be recommended by Dublin, California dentist Dr. Robert A. Chacon, Jr. of Chacon Dental Studio.

What are veneers? 

Dr. Chacon describes veneers as thin pieces of ceramic cemented over the front of a tooth to change their shape, size, color, or overall appearance. They are often used on teeth with imperfections such as:

  • Chips/cracked
  • Breakage
  • Discoloration
  • Unevenness
  • Misalignment
  • Gaps between

When the veneer is bonded onto the front of a tooth, it covers the problem and provides a quick and easy solution to various common issues.

How are veneers made?

Veneers are made of ceramic and are fabricated in an outside dental laboratory. A dental lab technician will receive impressions of the natural, prepared tooth from the dentist and information such as the color, shape, and size of the existing teeth. This individual will then personally fabricate the final veneer to match the rest of the patient’s smile for seamless integration. Once the veneer is completed and sent back to the dental office, patients return for an appointment to place the veneer.

How long will veneers last?

Ceramic veneers last longer than composite resin veneers because of the material used to create them. Ceramic does not stain or discolor, so it often lasts longer and doesn’t need to be replaced as often as composite veneers.

Veneers

Veneers

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
