Veneers Pleasanton - Porcelain Veneer Dentist
Mona Gokani, DDS recommends the use of porcelain veneers and offers several types of elite veneer services to residents of the greater Pleasanton area who need treatment for their damaged teeth surface. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth colored materials that are bonded on the tooth’s surface. Once in place, porcelain veneers cover any imperfections on the tooth surface and instantly improves the appearance of the tooth of our patients.
What benefits can patients in Pleasanton get from veneers?
Porcelain veneers are becoming more and more popular among our patients in Pleasanton. Porcelain veneers have a number of advantages over other dental procedures in restoring the function and aesthetic value of the patient’s tooth.
Porcelain veneers are designed to match the natural appearance of the tooth surface. Patients in Pleasanton who received porcelain veneers make it seem like the damage didn’t exist in the first place. Dr. Gokani also recommends the use of porcelain veneers for the restorative needs of her patients because it is well tolerated by the gum tissues unlike other dental materials. This ensures the optimum dental health not only of the tooth, but also of the patient’s gums.
What is a porcelain veneer procedure like for patients in Pleasanton?
Dr. Gokani encourages patients in Pleasanton to take advantage of the time they have during consultation especially when getting porcelain veneers. This is the best time for the patient to voice out any concerns and apprehensions they may have regarding the procedure and provide information on the results that they want to achieve. This also helps Dr. Gokani set realistic expectations for the dental procedure and, if needed, provide alternatives that would best fit what the patient wishes to achieve.
A patient is prepared for the porcelain veneer procedure by taking dental impressions and getting dental x-rays to evaluate the tooth condition. Dr. Gokani will prepare the tooth by using an anesthetic to numb the area before removing a portion of the tooth enamel. An impression of the tooth will be taken and the model will be brought to our dental laboratory in Pleasanton to fabricate your porcelain veneer. While the veneer is being fabricated, our patients will be provided temporary veneers to wear until they are called back in for the installation.
Once the porcelain veneer is ready, our patient will be called back in for another appointment with Dr. Gokani in our office in Pleasanton. After matching the color and the shape of the porcelain veneer, it will then be bonded into place using dental cement and will be hardened with the application of a special light. Once fitted securely into place, final adjustments will be made to make sure that we are able to achieve the results desired by our patient.
How durable are porcelain veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.
Dr. Gokani will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.
