Smile flaws like discoloration, chips, and misalignment are common cosmetic concerns for many people. But with innovative den

If only you were born with a perfect smile. The truth is, most people have tooth imperfections that affect the appearance of their smiles. Whether due to genetics, an accident, or too much coffee, having crooked, chipped, or stained teeth is a common cosmetic concern that many people hide behind closed-lip smiles. 

Maybe you weren’t born with perfect teeth, but veneers can be the simple solution you’re looking for to make it look as though you were. At The Glen Dental in San Jose, California, our cosmetic dental specialists, Dr. Aman Bhullar and Dr. Donald Pepper, use veneers to create a naturally flawless look to brighten smiles and boost confidence. 

We’ve helped many patients improve the appearance of their teeth with veneers, and they may be the solution you’ve been searching for. 

Veneers: The perfect solution for many smile flaws

Veneers look just like your natural teeth, only better. The thin porcelain, tooth-colored shells are bonded to the front of your teeth to improve their shape, color, or size. They literally cover your smile flaw to make your teeth look perfect.

But you may be wondering what smile flaws veneers can fix. At The Glen Dental, we find veneers make the perfect solution for:

Though veneers solve many cosmetic concerns, we may also use them as a tool to protect and support a cracked or damaged tooth.  

A new smile in two office visits

Getting your flawless smile is easier than you may think. At The Glen Dental, we only require two office visits for placement of your veneers. During your first visit, we gently buff the surface of your tooth or teeth to make room for the porcelain shell. This buffing is painless and done without anesthesia.

Next, we take a mold of your teeth, which is used to create your custom veneers. We also help you select the best color for your veneers so you get the most natural look.

Once your veneers are ready, you return to the office so we can bond them to your teeth. During this visit, we first thoroughly clean your teeth, which ensures a more perfect bond of the veneer to the surface of your tooth. We then apply the adhesive, carefully place the veneer, and bond the shell to your teeth using a special light.

Because we want you to look and feel your best, we may do some shaping of your veneers after they’re placed so they look perfect. 

Perfection for years

With good oral care, your veneers can keep your smile flawless for many years. We recommend you brush twice a day, floss once a day, and come to the office for your regular cleanings every six months.

Veneers are strong, but to prevent damage we recommend you do not chew on:

We find that veneers make the perfect solution for many cosmetic concerns. However, if veneers aren’t the right fit for you, we can talk to you about our other cosmetic dental options.
