Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are dental treatments your dentist will recommend for cosmetic purposes. Veneers bond to your teeth to improve their appearance. They are thin shells made out mostly of porcelain.

Veneers and cosmetic bonding have the same purposes. Either treatment may be used to fix the appearance of crooked or chipped teeth, adjust tooth length and width, or replace stained teeth with a whitened look. Compared to cosmetic bonding, veneers may require a more invasive procedure, but they can also last longer.

Depending on the condition of your teeth, your dentist may also offer the use of Lumineers, a thinner kind of veneer.

Napa Valley Dental Group in Napa, CA offers porcelain veneers and Lumineers to patients as one of the treatment options for getting the best smile they can have, for a longer time.

About Porcelain Veneers

A patient needs up to three consultations to have a veneer. The initial consultation is used by your dentist to determine the condition of your teeth and the number of teeth which would require treatment.

An X-ray may then be done as necessary, to provide additional information relevant to the making of your veneer.

For the second consultation, local anesthesia will be applied before your dentist shaves off a minuscule amount from the enamel of the tooth that wi ll receive the porcelain veneer. Ordinarily only about ½ millimeter of shaving will be done.

Next, an impression of your teeth will be done and sent to a laboratory. The impression will be the basis for the making of the veneer. Laboratory work in this regard will usually take one or two weeks to finish.

Your third consultation is when your veneer is fitted and checked for color against your other teeth. Should adjustments as to fit and color be necessary, your dentist can do minor changes.

If your finished veneer fits well and the color matches that of your natural teeth, then the procedure is close to being completed. Ordinarily, there is no need for reshaping or adjusting the color.

The final steps are simple and quick. Your teeth are cleaned and polished. A bit of etching follows, then the adhesive is placed, and your porcelain veneer is bonded to your tooth.

Ultraviolet light will be used for bond hardening. Once hardened, any dental debris left in your mouth is cleared. The procedure is then complete.

Lumineers only require two dental consultations. The first consultation is spent on examining your teeth, determining fit and color, and making an impression.

The second consultation is spent on applying the Lumineer without the need for anesthesia and enamel etching.

You can discuss with your dentist which option would be best for you. To schedule your appointment, please call (707) 257-2400. Our office address is 2119 Jefferson St. Napa, CA 94559.

I’ve never experienced a friendlier, more organized, more effecient group of professionals in ANY medically focused office of any sort. If your appointment is at 10:00, expect to be called in no later than 10:01..

The price was right the staff was above and beyond. I also had a beautiful doctor Kumar taking care of me do it was s very pleasant experience. She did the tooth extraction flawlessly and I’m a big man with big teeth. I had read reviews before I chose this dentist and the 5 stars in my opinion aren’t enough. They have a repeat customer and after a couple of disappointments it’s nice to be able to say that. Thank you Yuvika and staff.

I have the good fortune of having Dr. Bhullar as my dentist in Napa, Ca. He has taken care of my entire family, even putting my daughter through braces. He has done Root canals and Crowns, fixed broken teeth, you name it. We trust his work and his advice completely, and all his work has been outstanding. Dr. Bhullar takes time to explain all the procedures. He explains all the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent judgment.His staff is also extremely helpful! From the moment, you walk in the door, you sense this is no ordinary dental office (Thank You Laura) for your patience and help in explaining everything. You guys are the BEST!

Honestly I’ve always been extremely skeptical of dental appointments and have had a few bad experiences, but I could not be more relieved when leaving my appointment today. I definitely felt “”taken care of”” by the quality of care I received as well as their extension of help in multiple aspects of what I needed.Very pleased and again, relieved
