Many people feel that a white and winning smile is the key to making a good first impression. A smile that has been marred by one or more cosmetic imperfections can have a serious impact on your self-esteem and quality of life. Fortunately, your dentist, Dr. Amandeep Gill, is well versed and experienced in a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments that are needed to improve your smile.

Dental veneers are shells that improve a smile with teeth suffering from multiple cosmetic imperfections. Dental veneers in Modesto, California, are porcelain shells that are custom made and fitted to match the faces of each tooth in your smile.

It often requires two separate appointments for your dentist to fit your smile with porcelain dental veneers.

Your dentist will first want to examine the teeth in your smile to make sure each one has sufficient enamel to securely mount a veneer. Should one or two of your teeth lack sufficient enamel to mount a veneer, your dentist might recommend having it restored by a porcelain dental crown.

Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth to prepare the surface. Then, she will create an impression of each tooth in your smile. This will be sent to our state-of-the-art dental lab where your veneers will be custom made from a ceramic porcelain material.

We will call you back in for a second appointment once the lab technician has completed the veneers. To install the veneers, your dentist will carefully cement them into place.

If your smile suffers from multiple cosmetic imperfections and you’re interested in dental veneers, you should call (209) 566-1986 to set up an appointment at Gill Family Dentistry.
