Porcelain veneers are used to change the look and appearance of a smile. They can change the shade of the tooth, the shape of the tooth, or the contour of the tooth. They can also be used to fix chips, cracks, malalignment concerns, and address stains on the tooth that have not responded well to teeth whitening or bleaching alternatives. They are virtually undetectable, and oftentimes do not require much in terms of tooth preparation.
Normally, when we complete a set of veneers for our patients, we will then create a custom night guard to help protect the veneers from chipping or breaking. Although veneers that are done correctly do not tend to ever debond, teeth grinding can cause damage to the porcelain veneers, causing them to crack or break. These concerns require additional care and replacement in order to keep porcelain veneers looking their best, so by wearing the custom night guard, you can enjoy your porcelain veneers for an extended amount of time.

Veneers are a non-reversible process, so we typically like to rule out other cosmetic options first. Orthodontics can be used to move and realign teeth, teeth whitening and bleaching can help address stains and discolorations, and bonding may also be used to help with gaps or other minor concerns that the patient may have. If none of these alternatives address the dental problems, then the patient may consider having porcelain veneers completed on their teeth.
One benefit a patient can enjoy by going to 32 Dental for their veneers is the chance to enjoy the mock-up process that is part of our treatment plan for veneers. This involves the creation of a mold made from an initial impression that is sent to our labs to create a mock-up of the individual's final results. This is placed in the patient's mouth so that they can see what the finished result will look like. We do this for all of our patients that are undergoing treatment for porcelain veneers.

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.
Excellent Service - Dr. Vo fixed my front teeth - you can not even see that there was a problem before - AWESOME! The whole team is very friendly and supportive. ~ ~ Martina E.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.
My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.
Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!
Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
