Porcelain Veneers for La Mesa and El Cajon, CA
What are Porcelain Veneers?
A dental veneer is a very thin piece of material that can be used to change and enhance the appearance of your teeth. Our porcelain veneers are made in a professional dental laboratory and are hand tailored for each patient. Veneers bond to the front of the tooth and can be used to fix the appearance of teeth that are crooked, misshapen, severely discolored, stained, oddly sized, worn, chipped, cracked, or unevenly spaced.
Our dental veneers are extremely versatile and can be used for multiple purposes at once to improve the appearance of your teeth. With veneers you can fix tooth damage and make your teeth look brighter and straighter at the same time. Our veneers are made with the highest quality porcelain to perfectly mimic the natural shade and translucence of your teeth. Porcelain veneers look completely natural. If you’ve always wanted a perfect, celebrity smile, A Shop for Smiles – Richard Hagstrom, DDS can use porcelain veneers to meet your smile goals.
The Dental Porcelain Veneer Procedure
We can place your dental veneers in two visits. We will take a mold and impression of your teeth before the procedure. Together you and Dr. Hagstrom will choose the shade of your veneers and discuss how many veneers will be needed to meet all of your smile goals. At your first appointment, we will prepare your teeth for the veneers by lightly buffing and reshaping the surface of each tooth.
When your teeth are ready, we will clean them with a special liquid that will help them bond with the veneer. The veneer will be sealed to your tooth using bonding cement and a special light that will help the bond harden and set. We will give you easy-to-follow care instructions for your veneers after the procedure, and you will walk out of our office with the stunning, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
