Porcelain Veneers in Salinas, CA

NEXT Dentistry
Dr. Veronika Vazquez

Porcelain veneers are new coverings over the entire face of the teeth. It’s probably easiest to think about porcelain veneers the same way you think about false fingernails. A porcelain veneer is a thin piece of custom-made porcelain designed specifically for your mouth and bonded into place. These are very conservative treatments, as they require very little tooth modification, and most of your original tooth structure stays intact.

Our dental laboratory makes porcelain veneers to the exact specifications that you require. We can match almost any shade, shape or contour, and porcelain veneers do not fade or yellow over time. As with any dental restoration, porcelain veneers may chip or wear out over time, but most of our patients with veneers on their front teeth can safely bite into apples, corn on the cob, steak or ribs without any problem! It’s truly a great, beautiful way to perfect your smile. Porcelain veneers can also improve the shade and shape of your teeth.

Porcelain veneers are great if your teeth are discolored or damaged or if there are spaces between your teeth that you’d like to close. Porcelain veneers aren’t right for everyone, and there are some limitations as to what they can accomplish. Before we decide for sure that this is the right treatment for you, we’d love to talk to you more about what’s available.

Porcelain veneers usually require two appointments in our office. After getting you numb, we prepare your teeth for veneers and make an impression of your teeth to send to a dental laboratory.

Veneers are a slim covering that fit on the front of your teeth. Veneers are made of porcelain, and they are custom-made to match the color of your natural teeth. They are created using a mold of the natural teeth. Your dentist will remove a very thin layer of enamel to make room for the veneers, and they are then glued and light cured in place. Veneers can be used to correct shape, close small gaps, and covering stained teeth. They can last from 10 to 20 years depending on a number of factors.
