What are veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that fit over your teeth to improve their overall appearance and your self-confidence. Las Positas Family Dental offers custom-fit, noninvasive veneers that look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth. Getting them is a simple procedure that can produce dramatic results.

What are veneers used for?

Veneers can improve the look of teeth that are:


Too small





Worn down



Veneers also enhance the structure and function of your teeth, add strength, and give you back your confidence.

Are veneers right for me?

If you have tooth imperfections and would like a more aesthetically pleasing smile, veneers might be the cosmetic solution for you.
You must maintain good oral health by limiting extensive tooth decay or gum disease. However, the team at Las Positas Family Dental can treat these conditions prior to veneer placement.
They examine your mouth, review your dental history, and take digital X-rays to ensure veneers are the right cosmetic dental treatment for you.

What happens during veneer placement?

When you arrive at Las Positas Family Dental for veneer placement, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. Your provider removes a small amount of enamel from the front and side of your teeth to prepare them. They digitally scan your mouth, allowing a dental lab to fabricate custom-fit veneers.
When your custom-fit veneers are ready, your provider permanently bonds them to your teeth, where they can last up to 20 years or longer if you care for them properly.* There’s no downtime after getting veneers, so you can resume your regular routine right away.

How should I care for my veneers?

Take care of your veneers to avoid damage and discoloration. Limit red wine, coffee, tea, and soda that can stain. You should also abstain from smoking. Don’t chew hard objects, avoid biting your fingernails, and wear a nightguard if you grind your teeth while you sleep. 

 To avoid dental problems and gum disease, brush your teeth twice daily and floss every day. 

See the Las Positas Family Dental team every six months for routine cleanings and exams, and call the office if your veneers get damaged.

Don’t live with imperfect teeth when there are affordable cosmetic options. Call Las Positas Family Dental or request an appointment online today.
