If you feel self-conscious or even embarrassed by your smile, you are not alone. Many people wish their smile were different. There are many cosmetic dentistry options available to perfect the appearance of your teeth. One effective procedure is the application of dental veneers.

Veneers are thin shells bonded to the front of teeth in order to improve appearance. They can cover discolored or stained teeth, lessen large gaps between teeth, correct crooked or uneven teeth, and even repair chipped or worn teeth. Veneers can be applied to many teeth or one, and feel natural. They are durable and strong, and don’t usually interfere with bite strength.

Veneers are irreversible, meaning once one has veneers, he or she cannot remove them. This is because some of the tooth enamel must be removed and the tooth recontoured in order for the veneer to fit and bond properly. But they provide a lasting improvement in the appearance of teeth.

In many places, getting veneers takes at least two visits since the veneers must be created in a lab elsewhere. Here at Smiles of East Lake, though, we can accomplish your veneer procedure in one day thanks to our use of CEREC® one-day dentistry technology. We can fabricate your veneers right here in-house, and you can walk out with a brand new smile.

Dental veneers are one good solution for imperfect teeth. If you would like to learn more about veneers or set a consultation with Dr. Eric Eusebio, please call our Chula Vista, CA, office today.
