veneers, general dentistry in san diegoCosmetic dentistry affords us many opportunities in terms of creating (or recreating) the ultimate smile. Among the available procedures, custom veneers rank incredibly high when it comes to esthetic appeal, ease, and versatility.

When we talk about enhancing your smile with cosmetic dentistry and custom veneers, we’re working to improve your entire smile, but we’re making it happen by crafting each tooth individually. In perfecting your smile tooth by tooth, we can ensure that no detail is overlooked and you can rest assured that you’ll love your smile.

What Are Veneers?

Our veneers are crafted from an elite grade of ceramic porcelain which is shaded and molded to our exact specifications—tooth by tooth. Each veneer covers the front surface of the tooth and as well as the sides of the tooth and the biting edge. This design is considered to be conservative, requiring a minimal amount of reshaping to the natural tooth. The veneer will be permanently bonded to the tooth, concealing the natural tooth completely when you speak and smile.

What Can Be Accomplished with Veneers?

Most cosmetic flaws and imperfections can be concealed with custom veneers. This includes severe discolorations, chipped edges, short teeth, overlapping, and spaces between the teeth. Veneers are appropriate for visual imperfection involving the front teeth (top or bottom), but veneers are not recommended for the back teeth (the back teeth can be crowned as part of your cosmetic treatment plan).

As we plan for your treatment, we’ll discuss the factors that can be customized to make your procedure a success. The exact shade of your veneers can be selected to match your natural teeth, or a whiter shade may be selected if you so desire. The shape of each veneer can be selected to create the smile that compliments your gender, the shape of your face, and even your personality. Some patients prefer identical teeth, while others request teeth that more closely resemble their natural teeth.
