What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to your teeth’s surface to restore your smile. Made of durable porcelain, they have the unique quality of truly mimicking the appearance of natural teeth.
Whether you need a single veneer or a set, our dentist will work with you to plan your perfect smile. We believe in fostering open communication, so our patients can take a proactive, confident role in their dental journey.
Benefits of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are known for their convenience and effectiveness in improving our patients’ smiles. Other advantages you can enjoy with these fixtures include:
- Fast, painless procedure
- Stain resistant
- Natural-looking appearance
- Help restore self-confidence
- Mask discolored or damaged teeth
Reasons for Veneers
Our dentists use dental veneers to conceal various minor cosmetic flaws in your smile, such as:
- Worn or damaged teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Uneven or misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Teeth that lack enamel
The Dental Veneers Process
During your initial consultation, Dr. Bayette will take impressions of your teeth to customize your dental veneers to match your natural teeth. He’ll then gently buff your teeth and remove a small amount of enamel to ensure they fit perfectly.
Your custom porcelain veneers will take about two weeks to complete. You’ll return to our Mission Valley office, where Dr. Bayette will directly bond the veneers to your teeth’s surface by using a dental resin that hardens when a special light is applied.
Afterward, Dr. Bayette will double-check that your dental veneers look and fit perfectly before the bond is solidified. You’ll leave our office and show off your stunning smile with confidence.
