Veneers in Mission Viejo, CA

Why Should I Choose Veneers?

Veneers offer a level of cosmetic appeal that other cosmetic dental procedures can’t simply match. These thin, custom-made shells sit in front of your tooth, hiding cracks, fractures, and stains. Mission Viejo dentists create them to match your tooth’s natural color resulting in a seamless, natural-looking smile certain to fetch compliments. The procedure for getting veneers is also minimally invasive and only involves removing a little of your enamel to make room for the veneers.

The Benefits of Veneers

Veneers Look and Feel Natural

Veneers look and feel just like your natural teeth. That’s because dentists compare your tooth’s color to a color chart to create veneers that closely match your tooth’s color. This results in natural-looking teeth, and it’s hard for people to notice you have veneers on unless you tell them.

Highly Durable

Veneers are permanent dental fixtures that last up to 20 years for porcelain veneers and 10 years for ceramic veneers. Ceramic and porcelain are hardy materials resistant to bacterial acid and thus don’t decay. They’re also strong and can withstand pressure when biting into hard foods and objects like raw carrots and nuts.

Improves Visual Appeal

Veneers can significantly boost your visual appeal, given that your smile is one of your most noticeable features. Dentists use them to cover large fractures and cracks on the teeth that would ruin your smile. Veneers can also hide large stains and discoloration in the teeth, resulting in a beautiful smile.

The Veneers Treatment Process

Consultation and Treatment Plan

The first step in getting veneers is a consultation with one of our licensed and experienced dentists. During the consultation, the dentist will evaluate your oral health and discuss your goals and expectations. After deciding on the veneer treatment, the dentist will create a treatment plan that outlines crucial details about the procedure.

Tooth Preparation and Taking Impressions

The dentist will then prepare the tooth by shaving a small portion of the enamel. You might receive a small dose of local anesthesia to ensure this step is painless. Shaving the enamel provides extra room to accommodate the veneers. The dentist will then take impressions of your teeth with dental putty and send them to a lab to fabricate your dentures.

Veneer Placement and Bonding

Once the veneers are ready, the dentist will call you in to place them on your teeth. They’ll check how the veneers fit by placing them on the teeth. If they fit perfectly, the teeth are cleaned, polished, and etched before applying a special adhesive and placing the veneers immediately after.

Final Adjustments and Post-Treatment Care

With the veneers in place, the dentist will make any adjustments to ensure seamless teeth. They might also register your bite and trim or shape the veneers. You’ll then receive instructions for caring for the veneers to get the most out of them.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

plus icon

The lifespan of veneers depends on the type of veneers and how well you take care of your teeth. Porcelain veneers last the longest and should give you 20 years with proper care. Ceramic veneers, on the other hand, last seven to ten years if you take good care of them. We can arrange for veneer repair or replacement should you damage or lose them.

Am I a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Anyone in good health is a great candidate for veneers. However, Dr. Jenny will conduct tests and evaluate your dental health before giving you the green light. Patients with gum disease might need treatment first before they can get veneers. The treatment is ideal for people with cracked and chipped teeth or heavy tooth discoloration.
