Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers enable patients to customize their smile in whatever way they like. Thin sheaths of ceramic are affixed to the front of the teeth, improving their shape, size, and color to create a spectacular look. Veneers are extremely strong and placed using dental cement, meaning a patient will enjoy a smile that is both stunning and practical. Every veneer is custom-made for every patient, and you can get one or a complete set in just two easy appointments.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin sheaths of durable dental ceramic. They are permanently bonded to the front surfaces of your problem teeth to make them appear effortlessly perfect while still blending in with your smile. Each veneer is custom-made to your unique smile specifications, so you can avoid “chiclet teeth” that look unnatural. After your consultation to determine that veneers are the right treatment for your smile, getting them placed takes only two appointments.

What Is the Procedure Like?

During your first visit, Dr. Alhamdi, your dentist in Carmel Valley, will first prepare your teeth to have the veneers placed. To do this, he will remove a thin sliver of enamel, about as thick as a contact lens. This step is necessary to ensure that your veneers will appear completely natural and not bulge out in your smile.

Once this step is finished, our team will take detailed impressions of your affected teeth in order for our partnered dental lab to design your custom restorations. While your new smile is being crafted, we’ll affix you with temporary veneers to both protect your teeth and let you get used to the way they will feel in your mouth. After a few weeks, you’ll return to our office. Your temporaries will be replaced with your permanent veneers, and voila! You’ll have a smile like the movie stars!

What Are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers offer many advantages, including:

  • They are able to correct multiple flaws in your smile in just one treatment.
  • Gum tissue tolerates dental porcelain incredibly well, so there should be no irritation.
  • Veneers are much more highly resistant to staining than your tooth enamel.
  • The color of your veneers can be customized so that your surrounding natural teeth appear lighter.
  • Veneers offer a more conservative treatment than dental crowns, as less enamel must be removed to prepare the teeth.
