If you’re interested in veneers in the Pleasanton area, Gateway Dental Care has the knowledge and experience you’re seeking to improve the look of your smile. Veneers are used by our dentists for a variety of cosmetic applications, including:
- Repair of small chips or cracks
- Filling of unsightly spaces
- Making teeth even and uniform
- Covering severe dullness or discoloration
Porcelain or Composite Veneers
Veneers are made from either porcelain or a resin composite, either at our dental lab or in the office. When a veneer is used for repairing just one tooth or a small number of teeth, the color is matched to your other teeth after a professional cleaning. Veneers can also be applied to visibly improve the look of your entire smile.
If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution to discolored or damaged teeth, Dr. Kitagawa at Gateway Dental Care recommends veneers for optimal results.
What to Expect
The procedure for veneer applications is performed over two visits. The first visit is crucial, as that is when your teeth are examined and the overall health of your mouth is determined as being acceptable for veneers. Then, we work with you in choosing the proper color and advise you what you can expect once the veneers are applied to your teeth.
Also during this first visit, we prepare your teeth for the veneers and make a mold of your teeth to ensure a perfect fit. If possible, we’ll fit you with temporary veneers so you can get a better idea of what to expect.
