Overview

One fast way to improve your smile and conceal crooked, chipped, stained, or decayed teeth is with porcelain veneers at Dental Express. Dental veneers are created out of porcelain and secured to the front of your teeth to improve the overall look of your smile. Offering personalized and minimal-prep veneers, we can aid in improving the size, color, length, or shape of the teeth. Make an appointment at one of our San Diego, CA offices to learn more about veneers and decide if they are right for your cosmetic goals.

Best Candidates

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

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.

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.

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.
