Sacramento dentist explains how to dramatically improve your smile with convenient porcelain veneers processBy Kosta J. Adams, DDS, MAGD, FICOI / Kristen J. Adams - Dentist Sacramento
What to Expect: The Porcelain Veneers Process in SacramentoVeneers are thin pieces of porcelain. This type of ceramic is used to replace worn or flawed tooth structure. After veneers have been deemed the appropriate way to cover stains, chips, gaps, or to reshape teeth, the doctors will prepare both the dental material, which will be your new tooth structure, as well as the surface of your tooth.
Preparing the ToothThe veneers will be applied to the front of the treated teeth. To make room for this these thin sheets of porcelain, your enamel must be reduced. “Reduction” refers to removing a small amount of natural tooth enamel. Modern veneers require very little reduction of natural tooth structure for the most natural feel and look.
Preparing the VeneerThe process starts by taking impressions. These models of your mouth guide the design of the veneers, so they blend in well with the rest of your teeth. Impressions and any other information about your teeth will then be sent to Drs. Kosta and Kristen Adams’ trusted lab partners. These lab technicians will make veneers to your unique specifications.
PlacementYou will be fitted with temporary veneers as the lab makes your permanent set. Within one to three weeks, your new porcelain veneers will be sent to the office. You will then return for a second appointment, during which time the dentist will remove the temporary restorations and place the permanent ones. After checking for proper fit and appearance, the doctor will use premium bonding materials to cement the veneers for long-lasting durability and strength.

Woke up with a horribly infected tooth on Friday morning. I had not established a relationship with a dentist since moving to Sacramento. Googled emergency dentists and was incredibly fortunate to find Dr. Adams listing. Called them on a Friday afternoon as a new patient and was seen within an hour!!! Two teeth had to be pulled. Dr Adams and Dr Kristen were awesome. I didn't feel a thing....teeth were out quickly and painlessly. Everyone there is incredibly sweet and caring. Everything is spotless and clean - could not have asked for a better experience. I have found my forever Dentist.

They have cared for my teeth for 20+ years. Always warm and very trustworthy. I'd like to share my most recent visit, since it reflects the quality of care they have always provided. So my front tooth had a chipped bottom and my back tooth had a broken filling. First off, he fixed the broken filling without a problem. Next, Dr. Adams walked me through the options we had for the chipped tooth. I asked various questions to address my concerns. His explanations were comforting. For both my teeth issues, he gave me a full idea of what to expect. In the end, both teeth were cared for and function just fine now. No more worrying! I feel comfortable trusting him with caring for my teeth.

Like always had a great experience with Dr Adams and Dr Adams. Had two fillings done and was in and out in just over an hour, I liked how they took the time to explain the whole procedure to me and answered all my questions about my teeth. I also enjoyed their good background music. The staff was very friendly and helpful in answering all my billing questions and setting up my next appointment. See you guys next time!!
