At Smilehaven Dental Center, we make it our goal to give all our patients in and around La Mesa and El Cajon, CA bright and healthy smiles that they’ll never be afraid to show off. We accomplish this goal by offering a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are sure to give you the beautiful smile that you’ve always dreamed of. As your trusted La Mesa, CA cosmetic dentist, one of these dentistry procedures that we’re proud to provide to you is our application of veneers.

What Are Veneers?

A veneer is a thin layer of a porcelain material that’s placed over a tooth. It’s a lifelike and natural material that will restore strength, appearance, and function to teeth with dental problems. Veneers are a perfect alternative to crowns when a tooth’s structure is fine, although there may be cosmetic or other dental imperfections.

This cosmetic dentistry procedure is simple and can be completed in only two office visits. On your first visit, we’ll take impressions of your teeth and develop a working model of them to determine how we’ll correct the problem. In the next appointment, we’ll bond the veneers to your teeth, giving you a bright, new smile. Maintaining these veneers is actually very simple; they just require the same constant care in brushing and flossing that your other teeth do.

What Types of Problems Can Veneers Fix?

Veneers are capable of treating a variety of dental problems, including the following:

  • Broken teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

The Advantages of Veneers

In addition to treating those many dental problems, veneers also offer a number of other advantages:

  • Veneers will restore proper function to your teeth.
  • They have a natural appearance that’s indistinguishable from your other teeth.
  • Veneers are made of a high-quality material that will actually resist discoloration more than your natural teeth will.
  • As opposed to crowns, your natural teeth will remain largely intact. Only a minimal amount of your tooth will have to be altered to fit the veneer.
  • Because your teeth will remain mostly intact, the veneer process is a quicker process that doesn’t require the same kind of extensive dental work that crowns do.
