What are Veneers?

Before getting dental veneers in San Jose, it’s advisable to understand what they are and how they work.

Veneers are a type of cosmetic dental prosthesis. They are similar to a crown, as they are built to fit over your natural teeth after trimming them. Unlike a crown, however, they are only meant to cover up the front chewing surface of your teeth for cosmetic purposes.
Essentially, veneers cover the natural enamel of your front teeth with bright, natural-looking porcelain material. Because of this, veneers can be used to treat a wide variety of different cosmetic dental issues.

However, veneers are not a restorative treatment; you cannot use them to help treat damaged or decayed teeth. If your teeth are damaged, you will need an alternative restorative treatment like a filling or a crown. The best way to determine whether veneers are right for you, contact our San Jose office, and our team will guide you!

What to Expect from the Veneer Placement Process

After Dr. Tuan has approved you for veneer treatment at our San Jose practice, the process typically takes two appointments for 2-3 weeks at AT Dental Care San Jose. During your first appointment, your teeth will be trimmed and prepared for your veneers.

Your mouth will be numbed and cleaned, then Dr. Tuan will buff away a thin layer of your enamel from each tooth that receives a dental veneer. This enamel must be removed so that your veneers will fit seamlessly and won’t add any further bulk to your teeth. Then, Dr. Tuan will take impressions of your teeth using dental putty and images of your smile. We will send these images and impressions to our partner dental lab, and they will begin making your veneers in San Jose, CA. Building your veneers takes a few weeks, so you will be sent home with a set of temporary resin veneers to protect your teeth.

Once your permanent veneers arrive at our San Jose office, you’ll come in for another appointment. At this appointment, Dr. Tuan will check the fit of each veneer and make any minor adjustments if required. Then, your veneers will be bonded using dental cement to complete the procedure.

Care & Maintenance of Veneers

Caring for your veneers is as easy as getting them in San Jose, CA. You can care for your veneers just like you’d care for your natural teeth. Brush twice per day for two minutes, and floss once per day. It’s also essential to continue to see Dr. Tuan every six months for a cleaning and a check-up.

Avoid chewing hard foods (almonds, ice, etc.) and non-food objects (pens, pencils, fingernails) with your veneers. It’s also important to avoid using your teeth as tools to open bags and packages or to tear tape. To protect your veneers, get a night guard if you grind your teeth, and an athletic mouthguard if you play contact sports.
