Novato Cosmetic Dentist Talks About Natural-Looking Porcelain Veneers

Written by Dr. McConnell on Jun 23, 2015

Everyone wants a beautiful smile. Healthy teeth are inherently beautiful, and at the Novato Cosmetic Dentist office we offer several treatment options that are designed to improve the health of your teeth and enhance your appearance. 

Strong and Beautiful Veneers

Dental veneers are fingernail-thin slices of dental porcelain used to mimic the look of natural teeth. Veneers are bonded securely to the front surface of your teeth and are perfect for making minor alterations to the position, shape, size, and color of your natural teeth.

Veneers are not only an effective option for perfecting cosmetic flaws, but they can also help protect your oral health in cases where teeth that are improperly positioned compromise your overall dental health. 

Healthy Teeth and a Perfect Smile

Porcelain veneers offer a translucent quality that closely resembles the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Their smooth finish resists discoloration from food and drink like dark berries and coffee that can stain teeth. 

Veneers offer strength and stability similar to that of your natural tooth enamel. They are also very versatile, and our cosmetic dentist can use them to correct a number of esthetic dental flaws:

  • Close gaps between teeth
  • Repair chipped, decayed, and worn teeth
  • Change the shape of teeth
  • Disguise misaligned teeth
  • Mask the appearance of severely stained teeth
  • Correct minor bite-related problems

Placing porcelain veneers requires removal of a tiny bit of your tooth enamel to ensure a perfect fit. That is why we need to examine your teeth to determine if veneers are right for you or if other options would be more appropriate.

We will take time to discuss your goals and answer any questions because it is important that you are completely comfortable with the process and thrilled with the final results. Our team wants to help you achieve your goal of perfectly healthy, beautiful teeth.

Please contact our Novato Cosmetic Dentist office so we can arrange a complimentary consultation to see if veneers are right for you.
