How Veneers Can Brighten Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence

Even if your teeth are healthy and fully functional, you might not be happy with their appearance. Few people have perfectly straight, white teeth naturally, and it can take lots of dental work to achieve your desired look.

At Esthetic Smiles in Oxnard, California, Dr. Jon Abajian provides cosmetic dentistry options, including quick, affordable veneers for straighter, brighter smiles.

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, veneers can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Not only will this boost your confidence, but it will help you make a good impression during dates, interviews, and social gatherings. 

How veneers work 

Veneers are small, thin shells of porcelain that go over the fronts of your natural teeth. They don’t cover the entire tooth, just the front. This is done by gently filing down the front faces of your teeth to make room for the veneers, before adhering them to the enamel. 

The adhesive is extremely strong, so there’s very little chance the veneer will be knocked off, and the amount of enamel removed is extremely small, so the veneers will lie flat against your teeth. 

Unlike other dental procedures, veneers are purely cosmetic. If your tooth has been notably damaged, you might be better off asking for a crown restoration, or replacing the tooth with an implant. However, if you simply have crooked, stained, or chipped teeth that are otherwise healthy, veneers can cover up these imperfections and give you a straight, pearly white smile. 

Benefits of veneers

Veneers can correct a number of cosmetic issues, including: 

It might take some time to get used to how your veneers feel, but every time you look in a mirror, take a photo, or meet someone new, you’ll be presenting a brand new smile. 

What to expect from veneers 

Before we do any work, you and your dentist sit down for a consultation to discuss a few things, like which teeth need veneers and how you want your new smile to look. Esthetic Smiles can provide Smileography to give you an idea of what your teeth will look like after we place the veneers.

Once you’re happy with the projected goal, we take impressions of your teeth to make sure that your veneers will fit snugly once they’re bonded. Then, we’ll carefully prep your teeth and apply the fabricated veneers to finish your smile.
