We all want a beautiful smile. After all, a great smile not only feels great, but it can boost your self-confidence and aid your overall well-being. It’s no wonder why those cosmetic dentistry treatments are so popular. One of the most popular and versatile treatments for creating a beautiful smile is the application of dental veneers. You can find this treatment at the office of Dr. Neeshat S. Khan in San Jose, CA.
Dental veneers are thin, custom-fit shells that are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth. They are tooth-colored to create a more natural-looking restoration and can be used for either aesthetic or functional purposes. Veneers can be made of dental porcelain or from resin composite materials, but porcelain is generally more stain-resistant and looks and feels more natural.
1.Veneers are unnaturally white and conspicuous.
This may once have been true, but with developments in dental technology, they now blend in perfectly with the natural teeth.
2.Veneers are applicable only for aesthetic purposes.
Though they are commonly used to improve the appearance of a smile, veneers can also be used to rebuild molars or replace worn or misshapen teeth. They can also be used to close gaps between teeth.
3.Veneers replace the entire tooth.
Some of the tooth structure will need to be removed to create sufficient room to place the veneer, but this is only a small amount, and you will be able to retain the majority of your tooth structure.
If you are looking for a cosmetic dentistry treatment to improve the shape, color, or position of your teeth without multiple or extensive procedures, veneers can be the right solution for you. Because they are so versatile, veneers can be placed to treat several dental issues at once instead of requiring you to undergo multiple treatments. This helps to save time and money.
To determine whether this is the right treatment for you, make an appointment at the office of Dr. Neeshat S. Khan. You will be able to discuss your goals with our dentist in San Jose, CA, and find the perfect solution to achieve the smile you want.
