Veneers Dentist Walnut Creek Real Looking Veneers By Skilled Dentist In Walnut Creek

Trust the appearance and feel of your veneers to a skilled dentist

Veneers are one of the most versatile treatments at the dentist’s office to correct cosmetic imperfections. Dr. Troy A. Schmedding knows cosmetic smile flaws and how to treat them intimately. Through his years in practice, he has developed substantial expertise in cosmetic dentistry. An accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Schmedding is as adept at restoring the beauty of a single tooth as he is with inspiring smile confidence among those patients undergoing full-mouth makeovers. 

There is peace of mind that your dentist at Family Dentistry of Walnut Creek has the exceptional skill and knowledge to design and place veneers that look and feel like natural, lovely teeth—not like fake-looking, overly “perfect” or “bucky” tooth structure. We want your smile to get noticed for all of the right reasons. 

The process 

If we determine that you are a great candidate for these thin layers of dental ceramic, a small amount of natural enamel is removed. This step is necessary to assure that each veneer fits properly over the natural tooth and doesn’t jut out too far, for instance. Modern veneers only require the removal of minimal enamel, about the thickness of a fingernail or contact lens. This feature makes veneers an attractive procedure for patients with a history of tooth sensitivity or who are concerned about discomfort caused by alteration of the natural tooth structure. In fact, veneers are so well-tolerated that anesthetic is typically not necessary for comfort. 

Now, if there are concerns over sensitivity while your permanent veneers are being made, Dr. Schmedding will place temporary composite veneers to protect the prepared natural teeth and for utmost comfort. We will also work closely with you to determine the best shade to match the color of the surrounding teeth. Veneers also present an opportunity for you to brighten your smile. You may opt for a lighter shade than your existing dentition for visible teeth. Veneers may also be combined with other cosmetic procedures or as part of a full smile makeover; for example, teeth may be whitened, and the lighter-colored veneers may be used to disguise chips, gaps, grooves, bumps, pits, and other irregularities. In turn, the veneers will blend in seamlessly with your newly-whitened teeth! Keep in mind that professional bleaching does not lighten restorations or all types of discoloration. So, veneers may even be used to cover up stubborn stains, like those caused by tetracycline.

With the usual good oral hygiene at home and check-ups and cleanings at our office, you can enjoy your treated teeth for years to come. Veneers are made using materials that are as strong and durable as they are pleasing to the eye. Contact us today to schedule your smile consultation.
