Veneers are wafer-thin custom shells usually made from porcelain or resin composite materials that are used to cover a tooth’s front surface to restore the tooth’s appearance. Veneers are bonded to teeth to change their shape, length, and even color. You should consider getting veneers Pleasant Hill if any of the following statements apply to you:
At our Pleasant Hill, CA dental office, a veneer appointment always begins with a thorough and collaborative consultation whose objective is to come up with a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. You must be honest with our dentists about what you’re trying to achieve so that we can formulate an appropriate treatment plan.
Remember that you’ll only be started on a veneer treatment plan if you are a suitable candidate. If you’re suffering from gingivitis or tooth decay, we don’t recommend getting veneers. Instead, we’ll get you started on first addressing the priority problem before moving on to the aesthetics.
After examining your teeth, our dentist will take x-rays and create an impression of your teeth. The next step involves trimming off enamel from your teeth to make room for the veneers. After the trimming, our dentist will make an additional mold of your mouth. These molds are crucial as the dentist Pleasant Hill CA will use them as guidelines to ensure your final look is as natural as possible.

At your final appointment, the Pleasant Hill dentist will bond the veneers onto the surface of your teeth after cleaning and etching your teeth.
