A porcelain veneer can be an excellent way to make a cosmetic change to a tooth. As compared to dental bonding, porcelain veneers usually look more natural and they resist staining well.

Veneers are thin shells of material that are bonded onto the surface of your teeth. Porcelain is frequently used due to its strength, durability, resistance to staining, ease of color matching and natural appearance.
Veneers are perfect for you if stained, chipped, or crooked teeth detract from your smile. Dental veneers are thin shells of highly stain-resistant porcelain that are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth, creating a natural looking smile.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed by Top San Diego Dentist to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

Just A Few Simple Steps
Getting a dental veneer usually requires three trips to the San Diego Dentist – one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers. One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process.
How Dr. Aryan, San Diego Dentist applies porcelain veneers
Veneers are applied to the teeth in 2 visits at the San Diego Dentist:
Visit # 1 Veneer Preparation: The teeth are prepared by San Diego Dentist by removing 0.3 to 0.5 mm of enamel (the thickness of a fingernail) to allow room for the veneer layer. An impression of the teeth is taken and sent to the specialized dental laboratory that will create the veneers. In about one to two weeks, your veneers will be completed and ready to be attached.
Visit #2 Veneer Bonding: Bonding involves all the steps that permanently attach the veneer to the tooth. After a cleaning of the tooth, the veneer is bonded to the tooth with a special dental cement. This dental cement is then hardened with a blue curing light.
At the dental office in Pacific Beach, San Diego, Dr. Aryan will carefully bond the veneers to your teeth, and you will leave our office with a gleaming new smile.

When do you need veneers?
Veneers are used in a variety of situations. Veneers are used for cosmetic restoration of teeth that are worn, discolored, chipped or crooked. Veneers can also be used to fill spaces, typically between the front teeth. Veneers can be used on a single tooth, matching the existing color of the other teeth, or they can be used to do a complete makeover giving you the “Hollywood smile” that you have always wanted.
In all cases the underlying tooth structure is required to be intact, or a crown will be recommended.
What’s involved in the veneer procedure?
Three appointments are typically needed for the veneer process.
At the first appointment the Dentist Pacific Beach dental staff will discuss with you what your goal is and make recommendations on the best way to achieve your goal. If veneers are determined to be a good choice for you a second appointment will be scheduled.
At the second appointment the teeth are prepared for veneer placement. Preparation of the tooth surface will vary depending on the condition of the existing tooth but will always involve removing a thin layer of the natural enamel. Once the tooth surface is prepared, molds are made and then sent to an offsite facility where the veneers are prepared. In typically three weeks time the third appointment will be made to bond the new veneers onto your existing teeth.
