Porcelain Veneers 90210 Style

Board-certified specialists and our cosmetic dentists often use porcelain veneers for a number of different cosmetic corrections, whether it is a tooth alignment or a replacement for orthodontic adjustment or teeth color correction and whitening in our San Diego office. One of the biggest benefits of porcelain veneers is a broad range of different color, shape and form corrective or altering functions and a life-like appearance, which is why they are some of the most popular and trusted procedures in the cosmetic industry. As opposed to crowns, your natural teeth remain intact with veneers, with only a minimal amount or none at all of your natural enamel being altered to fit the veneer. Veneers can even make the darkest teeth in your mouth appear bright white. Veneers are often recommended as a quick and effective fix for teeth overlaps, small gaps and minor teeth twists and size discrepancies inside the mouth.

Porcelain Veneers Best Candidate 

Porcelain veneers are often the right solution for situations in which the original tooth has improper shape, color, or contours. It is also a common choice for dentists when it comes to the presence of gaps in between teeth, fractured teeth, or when there are minor bite related issues. Tooth whitening or bleaching may be ineffective for certain superficial stains. A porcelain veneer might be the best option to address these tooth color stubborn issues.

Porcelain Veneers Expert

Porcelain veneers are made up of thin pieces of porcelain that are used to mimic the natural look of teeth, while also giving resilience and strength comparable to the existing natural tooth enamel. If you are looking to change your tooth size, shape or color, these slight position alterations can be accomplished with porcelain veneers. The bond between the porcelain veneer and the original tooth is vital since it allows for proper function and aesthetic perfection. If you’re ready to talk veneers, we’re here to help at our San Diego office.

Our office has extensive experience evaluating candidates for porcelain veneers. Without removing any or very little of your existing tooth enamel, we are able to upgrade your entire smile and facial appearance in as little as just one or two visits. Compared with some of the more invasive and potentially damaging options, such as crowns, veneers are a popular option because you are able to benefit from a non-invasive, conservative, extremely fast and painless way to change your smile forever.

Modern techniques used in our office enable you to go through the porcelain veneer installation with little or no tooth removal. We base the porcelain veneer type selected for your case on your individual needs, using digital impressions and facial imaging software. We then take your input and make a final determination about the type of veneers that are most appropriate for you.

Porcelain veneers are the best of both worlds since they are a conservative treatment with no pain, while also providing fantastic attention to detail and superb clinical and technical skills put into place by our office staff. This leads to a long-lasting way to have a rejuvenated bright smile in a very short period of time and in short dental procedures. If properly fabricated and maintained, your porcelain veneers should last as long as 20 years. If you’re looking for a powerful solution for your teeth concerns that don’t stain like a traditional enamel surface, consider the versatility of veneers which can be used to address any of the following characteristics of your teeth:

  • Alignment and spacing
  • Shape and size
  • Color

Porcelain Veneers Limitations

Dentists at our office will evaluate each candidate to determine whether or not he or she is the right fit for veneers. There are some situations in which veneers are not appropriate. If you have a large gap or significantly misaligned teeth, orthodontics may be recommended in adjunct or instead of veneers. Other options such as restoring your teeth with porcelain crowns that cover the entirety of the tooth may be appropriate for someone who has lost a great deal of tooth structure from trauma or decay. Schedule a consultation with our board-certified specialist today to learn more about whether or not veneers are right for you.
