What are dental veneers?

Veneers are designed to look just like the front portion of your tooth and they help cover imperfections found in the aesthetic zone.

Are dental veneers a good choice for my smile?

Porcelain veneers can offer wonderful results for a healthier looking smile, but before you can get dental veneers your San Bernardino cosmetic dentist Dr. Patel will need to evaluate your smile to make sure this is the right procedure for you. Here are some questions you need to ask yourself to make sure veneers are the best option.

  • Do you have severe stains that teeth whitening can’t fix?
  • Are your teeth healthy and free of decay?
  • Are you dealing with chipped or broken teeth?
  • Are you looking to correct some minor crookedness, gaps between teeth or overlapping?
  • Do you have oddly shaped teeth?
  • Do you want to have veneers for life?

If you have said, “yes” to all of these questions then dental veneers could be an ideal solution for your smile. It’s important to note that because some healthy enamel must be removed to accommodate your veneers, this procedure is irreversible. Be sure you are ready for veneers for the rest of your life before you agree to this procedure. Dental veneers are an investment, but a long-lasting, beautiful smile is well worth it.
