Invest in a Brand New Smile with Porcelain Veneers in Vallejo, CA

Porcelain veneers are bonded onto the surface of the tooth and molded to change the size and shape. Veneers are a good option for a number of common cosmetic imperfections:

  • Stains and discolorations
  • Mild to moderate chips and cracks
  • Fractures
  • Gaps and spacing

Maybe your teeth are perfectly healthy, but they're uneven or a different shape than you would like. Veneers can also be used for cosmetic upgrades to your existing smile.


How They Work

The first step is to schedule an appointment for a dental exam. If the dentist finds any problems like cavities or other oral health issues, they will have to be addressed first. The process itself is fairly straight forward. The dentist will take an impression of your teeth and send it to a lab where the veneers are designed. Veneers are made from a razor thin layer of porcelain, so they look and feel just like tooth enamel once in place. The dentist may need to remove a small layer of enamel to fit the veneer.

The process usually takes two dental appointments. With adequate care, veneers can last anywhere from five to ten years, but often much longer.
