Veneers

The Complete Smile Makeover

VeneersTeeth Veneers involve placing a covering the outside (visible area) of the tooth where there can be cavities or damage to teeth. A dentist usually applies veneers to fix the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. This cosmetic  procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique of San Jose smile dentist Dr. Ahmad usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using tooth bonding.

The indirect technique to fix teeth involves two appointments because the teeth veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared by your smile dentist, impressions taken to the dental lab, and the teeth are given a temporary covering.

In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the dental lab, the temporaries are removed and the tooth veneers are bonded to the teeth. The dental lab fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are very esthetic and natural-looking.

Advantage of Teeth Veneers in All Star Dental

San Jose dentist Dr. Ahmad believes that the advantage of teeth veneers versus porcelain crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
