"This is an awesome dental office. It’s hard to find any decent dentist that will take PPO Denti-Cal. This place is fully equipped and staffed. My old dentist always did a fine job on me until he had to change his insurance plans. But his place wasn’t even as good as this place. Bottom line, I’m glad I found this place through the help of other Yelp users!"- T.T. / Yelp / Jul 03, 2020
"First and foremost I want to thank Malik Wofford for being kind and understanding of my fear of the dentist. Malik made sure I was at ease the whole appointment. Dr. Danielle did my extractions and I didn't feel a thing. I am happy that I came here. Also a thank you to RaKenya for looking after my son for his appointment and helping Malik make adjustments to my denture. Great staff and great experience. Thank you so very much."- A.L. / Google / Jul 01, 2020
"Love this dental office. It’s beautiful, comfortable, and clean. The dentists and team work well with young people. It’s a pretty diverse team, which is important to me. They communicate very well with my teens. They speak in a way the teens feel comfortable and comprehend their dental work and upcoming expectations. I highly recommend. The teens look forward to my appointments here."- L.B. / Yelp / Jun 30, 2020
"I’ve been looking for a new dentist that takes Denti-Cal sence Western Dental had terrible service. I gave Western too many chances what incompetence! I went to Dental Express Point Loma as a new patient this afternoon. This may sound cheesy, but first impressions do make the difference. I say this because from walking into the office and being greeted by friendly staff members they know how to treat people.Dental Express Point Loma is very nice. Their lobby is gorgeous/very fancy. This place is a good size. I love the train theme. The actual mini train goes the entire building which was very entertaining. In fact the exam rooms are shaped like passenger rooms on the train.Now, the staff at the front are so warm and welcoming. Even with a mask on you could tell they’re smiling. Check-in was fast especially with the ipads. I got there at 2:40 for a 3:00 appointment and was in the exam room by 2:48. My hygienist /x-ray tech was very good she took her time. Dr. Danielle was running a bit behind, but she’s awesome.I found my new dental home."- J.M. / Yelp / Jun 19, 2020

Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers may be used to quickly cover stains and chips in your teeth, improve worn down or misaligned teeth, and fix teeth that are abnormally shaped or spaced. At Dental Express, we customize your porcelain veneers to fit securely over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. At your consultation, our dentists will listen to your objectives and expectations so we can customize your procedure. We may also see if you're a good candidate for veneers by assessing the total health of your mouth. You should not have symptoms of gum disease, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
What To Expect with Porcelain Veneers
As soon as one of our dentists has developed your personalized treatment program, we will take physical or digital dental impressions. Your cosmetic veneers might be produced in our office while you wait, or your impressions could be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain material. When your porcelain veneers are ready, we will remove a little bit of enamel from the front of your teeth. This creates room for the veneers and improves the bond for a more natural result that lasts a long time. When your porcelain veneers are secured, we will make small adjustments so that your veneers fit comfortably.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery
Since getting cosmetic veneers typically does not require anesthesia, you usually can continue your daily activities after your appointment. You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold meals for a couple of days, but this should subside naturally. Veneers should be cleaned just like your own natural teeth with daily brushing and flossing. While cosmetic veneers are stain-resistant compared to the natural teeth, you should still stay away from staining drinks and foods to keep your smile bright. To prevent harming your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, such as ice or your fingernails. Continue to schedule dental examinations and cleanings at Dental Express so that we can track the condition of your veneers, natural teeth, and overall oral health. Our team will tell you if your veneers need to be replaced or repaired.
Porcelain Veneers Insurance Coverage
Veneers are an elective procedure so they're usually not included in dental insurance. Dental Express does take many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to make your treatment more affordable. During the consultation, our group will personalize your treatment plan to meet your goals and budget. We will go over an estimate for your veneers and explore your payment options.
Enjoy the confidence of a beautiful smile with custom porcelain veneers at Dental Express. With an array of treatment options to satisfy your needs, we can help you quickly enhance the look of your smile with cosmetic veneers. To learn more, make an appointment at one of our San Diego, CA locations.
