Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory.  They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile.  They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.

As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement.  They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

Reasons for porcelain veneers:

  • Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile.
  • Crooked teeth.
  • Misshapen teeth.
  • Severely discolored or stained teeth.
  • Teeth that are too small or large.
  • Unwanted or uneven spaces.
  • Worn or chipped teeth.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure.  The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer.  A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.

On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond.  Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.

You will receive care instructions for veneers.  Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.

Testimonials

I never thought I would say I enjoy going to the dentist , but these two really elevate the practice of dentistry! I travel from the East Bay to attend my appointments and despite the morning traffic, I would never consider going anywhere else. Here are the things that, in my opinion, really make Dr. Ramirez and Dr. Karimi shine:
(1) They are very personable and easy to talk to - When I was looking for housing in the Bay Area, Dr. Karimi went out of her way to write down some areas for me to look. Who does that? Awesome dentists who care, that's who!

(2) They don't try to sell me services I don't need - I hate it when dentists try to sell you all sorts of fancy procedures/items you don't really need. These two would never do that!

(3) A focus on preventative care - Even though the money maker in dentistry is probably fixing bad teeth, both dentists emphasize preventative care. it's the first practice I've been to where their immediate response isn't to drill and fill!

(4) Email reminders before an appointment - I am really bad with the phone, so the email appointment reminders are a godsent!

Everyone in this office is FABULOUS!

My wife first heard about David and Katy through SFSPCA, and after the first appointment she couldn't stop raving about her visit! I was suspicious at first, since it's unusual to have a pleasant dentist visit. But then she went for a second visit, third visit, and the service and people were consistently excellent.

Finally I got very lucky and was able to schedule an appointment to experience this myself, and GOSH DR. RAMIREZ SERIOUSLY IS THE BEST DENTIST I'VE HAD! Super careful and professional, explained every step of the way and really funny to chat with lol

Sun, Joanne, Rita were all amazing and super helpful as well.

Thank you so much, everybody!!

Dr. Ramirez and Dr. Karimi have been my dentists for almost a decade now and they are by far the best dentists I have ever had. Dr. Karimi is amazing and gives so much personal attention she makes you feel very at ease. They truly care about you and your health. Dr. Karimi has helped me over the years to have better dental hygiene and it shows in how much better my teeth have gotten the last decade. I panic about one day moving as I know I will never find a better dental office than here. They really are the best and would recommend them to anyone.
