Deeps stains, minor imperfections and small chips on your teeth can leave you with a rather unappealing smile. In a situation like this, you should ask Niloufer G. Hamsayeh, DDS about using dental veneer to restore your teeth to give you a bright and appealing smile.
Dental veneers are essentially thin porcelain shells that are custom crafted to fit on the face of the teeth in your smile. The porcelain material can be color matched to look like natural tooth enamel, making them look as if they are your natural teeth.
Having dental veneers installed requires two separate appointments. The first step involves your Niloufer G. Hamsayeh, DDS dentist examining your teeth and take a few X-rays. This helps determine if there is sufficient enamel to anchor dental veneers as well as assess the overall health of each tooth. If one or more teeth lacks sufficient enamel or it has been compromised by past dental work we might recommend having a crown installed on that particular tooth.
After all of your teeth have been assessed for the most applicable treatment option. Niloufer G. Hamsayeh, DDS will form an impression of your smile. This will be sent to the dental lab where your custom dental veneers are crafted. Once the veneers are ready, each individual dental veneer will be cemented into place.
If you are interested in being fitted for dental veneers, please call Niloufer G. Hamsayeh, DDS at 415.682.6377 to schedule an appointment.
