Posted .

Minor cosmetic imperfections on the teeth can leaving you feeling socially awkward. This can be especially troublesome if you’ve been dealing with chronic dental stains. In a situation like this, a consultation with Dr. Jamie Choi at her dental office in San Jose, California, can help you understand your cosmetic dentistry options.

Dr. Jamie Choi can then assess the health of your teeth and the specific nature of the cosmetic imperfections. One convenient method to improve multiple cosmetic imperfection is to have Dr. Jamie Choi fit you for dental veneers. These are special porcelain shells that seamlessly match each tooth.

If one of your teeth has been compromised by a cavity, dental fracture, or a pre-existing dental filling, Dr. Jamie Choi might recommend restoring it with a porcelain dental crown. This will completely replace the exterior of the tooth in the same porcelain material as the veneers.

With the assessment complete, Dr. Jamie Choi will then create an impression of each tooth. This will be sent to a professional dental lab where dental technicians will create the veneers.

You will need to schedule a second appointment when the veneers are ready. During this session, Dr. Jamie Choi will remove a small amount of enamel from the face of each tooth. This will create sufficient texture to bond the dental veneer in place with a strong dental adhesive.

If you live in the San Jose, California, area and you’re interested in improving your smile with dental veneers, you should call 408-973-8500 to schedule an appointment at Jamie P. Choi, DDS.
