Having a stained, discolored, chipped, or misshapen tooth can be a damper on your confidence and social life. You may find that dental veneers are the best cosmetic dental treatment to improve and brighten your smile. Our dentist can help you determine if dental veneers are the right solution to achieving your dream smile.

A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell attached to a front tooth to cover its unwanted flaws, provide greater tooth strength, and reduce the risk of tooth decay and stains. Dr. Naman B. Patel can use a color swatch to help you choose the right shade for your dental veneers, which will be shaped to flatter your natural teeth.

Your consultation with the dentist will settle your cosmetic goals and finalize the design of your dental veneers. In order to bond the dental veneer, we need to take away a small amount of natural tooth enamel, and then ensure the tooth is clean and dry. You may receive a temporary veneer while the final product is created in a dental lab.

The final dental veneer is bonded to your tooth with a dental adhesive and then cured with a special ultraviolet light. Any excess material is trimmed away and the new tooth is polished to shine. A follow-up appointment will perform an adjustments to the fit and comfort.
