Los Altos Cosmetic Dentist

    Veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of your teeth. They are used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, chipped, or misshaped. At Saumya Ram, DDS, veneers are custom-made for each patient and designed to match your natural teeth' color. They can also close gaps between teeth and correct minor misalignments.

    Types of Veneers

    Composite Veneers

    Composite veneers are thin shells made of resin material that can be bonded to the front of your teeth. These veneers can match the color of your natural teeth and are typically less expensive than their porcelain counterparts. However, they are more prone to staining over time.

    Porcelain Veneers

    Porcelain veneers are thin shells made of ceramic material covering the teeth' front surface. They are stain-resistant and durable, making them a popular choice for many patients. In addition, they are made to match the natural color of your other teeth so they look as natural as possible.

    The Procedure for Veneers

    Before getting veneers, our dentist in Los Altos, CA, will examine your teeth to ensure they are healthy enough to support the procedure. Our dentist will also take x-rays and examine your teeth and gums to ensure no signs of decay or other problems.

    To prepare your teeth for the veneer process, our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the front of each tooth that will receive the veneer. This is necessary because veneers are thicker than natural teeth and require space to fit correctly. Next, our dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send it to the lab where your veneers will be created. While your permanent veneers are being made, you will be fitted with temporary ones to wear in the meantime. Once your permanent veneers are ready, you will return to the dentist to have them placed.

    After placement, our dentist will ensure the fit is correct, and the color matches your other teeth. They will bond them in place with a special cement if everything looks good. Once they are secure, they will polish them so they look and feel natural.
