Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that can transform your smile by covering imperfections such as stains, gaps, and misaligned teeth. One of the key decisions in the veneer process is selecting the right color and shape. Choosing the perfect shade and shape for your veneers can significantly impact the final result. In this blog, we’ll explore the considerations involved in making these decisions.

Dental Veneer Color Selection

Choosing the right shade for your veneers is essential to achieve a natural and beautiful result. During the consultation, we’ll be sure to go over this with you. However, it’s best to keep the following in mind:


    Veneers can be customized to match your existing teeth or to achieve a whiter, brighter smile. Your dentist will provide shade options that best align with your goals, as well as your skin tone and eye color.

    Natural Appearance

    For the most natural look, it’s often best to choose a shade that isn’t overly white but blends seamlessly with your natural teeth. Subtle variations in color can mimic the appearance of real teeth.

    Dental Veneer Shape Selection

    The shape of your veneers is equally important, as it can enhance your smile and facial aesthetics. When helping patients select the right shape for dental veneers, we often go over the following:

    • Facial Features
    • Natural Appearance
    • Personal Preference

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
