A shining smile can light up a room, but a smile that suffers from tooth damage, stains, and corrosion can hurt one’s confidence and self-esteem.

Over time, most of us experience some sort of damage to our smile, but porcelain veneers can help improve the appearance of your teeth if they are worn, malformed, cracked, displaced or discolored.  If you’re interested in receiving porcelain veneers to improve the look and functionality of your teeth, schedule a free consultation with our Santa Clarita dentist’s office to discuss your dental treatment options. Our committed dental team is here to get you the perfect smile you’ve been dreaming of.


The Aesthetic Appeal of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers look just like natural teeth. Veneers’ translucent nature allows them to mimic the characteristics of tooth enamel, which is not possible with other materials.

Since veneers are individually designed for each patient they blend in perfectly with your natural teeth, making it impossible for anyone to notice them. With porcelain veneers, you can look and feel more confident and show off a wonderful, shining smile.

What is a Porcelain Veneer?

A porcelain veneer is a semi-translucent, wafer-thin shell or coating made of tooth-colored porcelain bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their cosmetic appearance.


What Types of Problems Can Porcelain Veneers Fix?

Porcelain veneers can be used to cover a variety of cosmetic dental problems:

  • Staining or discoloration (this can happen because of a root canal treatment, resin fillings, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, etc.)
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Misshapen, uneven, or crooked teeth
  • Teeth that are too small or out of proportion
  • Worn down teeth
  • Excess gum when smiling
  • Sensitive teeth

Quick and Efficient Procedure

Porcelain veneers can be applied in two or three visits. Chat with our office to determine how long your dental restoration will take.

Natural Look and Feel

Porcelain veneers create a more symmetrical and proportional smile, mimicking the natural look of teeth.

Long-Lasting Durability

Porcelain veneers are extremely durable. Despite being very thin and delicate, veneers become incredibly strong once bonded to a natural tooth. If they are well-cared for, porcelain veneers can last up to 20 years and they allow you to eat, drink, and brush normally. Plus, porcelain veneers are even more resist to stains than natural teeth.

Great Alternative to Other Procedures

Getting veneers is a great alternative to orthodontic brackets and other treatments that take months to provide visible results.

Minimally Invasive Process

Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive way to enhance the appearance of your teeth, as only a small amount of tooth structure is removed during the procedure.

Stain Resistance & Brighter Smiles

Porcelain veneers have the power to resist permanent stains from colored liquids and cigarettes, and they remain brighter and whiter longer than natural teeth. Permanently stained teeth can finally be white again with the help of veneers, and patients can expect to see long-term results.

Easy Aftercare

Porcelain veneers are treated, brushed and flossed like natural teeth. After a while, you even notice that veneers are in your mouth as they integrate seamlessly into your natural tooth structure. If you have a habit of clenching your teeth, a special nighttime bite guard can help prevent you from damaging your new veneers.

The Steps to Applying Porcelain Veneers

Consultation and Examination

During this initial visit, your dental history and aesthetic goals are discussed in detail. This is your opportunity to express your desires for your smile's transformation and any specific concerns you may have. The dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination of your teeth, assessing their health, structure, and suitability for veneers. This examination may include digital imaging or X-rays to evaluate the underlying bone and tooth structure, ensuring a custom-tailored treatment plan.

Customized Veneer Design

Once your suitability for porcelain veneers is confirmed, the next step is the design phase, where each veneer is meticulously crafted to match your unique dental structure and aesthetic preferences. This phase involves choosing the right shape, size, color, and translucency to complement your facial features and smile. Advanced digital technology may be used to take impressions of your teeth and create a virtual mock-up, allowing you to visualize the final result.

Tooth Preparation

Usually, it takes one or two weeks to receive the final dental veneers. As soon as your porcelain veneers arrive, we have you come in to prepare the surface of your teeth, re-shaping and accommodating them for your veneer application. Before trimming off the enamel, we decide if there is a need for a local anesthetic, taking special care to make sure you’re ready for your veneer placement.

Dental Bonding and Finishing

Before the veneer is permanently integrated into your tooth, it’s tested to see how it looks with your smile and to guarantee a proper fit. Next, your tooth is carefully cleaned with a special gel to provide a good structure for the dental cement, and then the veneers are cemented into place with a thin layer of porcelain. Once properly bonded, a special light beam is used to harden the cement and help your tooth heal quickly. Finally, any excess cement is removed, and your bite and smile are evaluated to ensure a proper, high-quality fit.

Maintenance and Follow-Up

Maintaining porcelain veneers is quite easy. You should treat them as your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. One week after the veneers are applied, you will have to return to the dental office for a final evaluation to see how your veneers are performing. You will also want to occasionally polish your veneers with a special, non-abrasive paste. View before and after photos from our gallery to see the difference a new smile can make.

Post Operative Care Instructions

Managing Temporary Veneers

Before getting permanent veneers, you will have to wear temporary veneers for a short amount of time. These are made of an acrylic material to protect exposed dentin and minimize tooth sensitivity. Since temporary veneers are placed with cement that can come loose, you should avoid chewy food (gums, taffy, etc.) You can brush and floss your temporary veneers, but you must do so gently. In some cases the temporary veneers are fused, in which case you may need a floss threader to properly clean between your teeth. If temporary veneers fall out, try to put them back with the help of over-the-counter dental paste and contact our office.

Be ready to experience some level of increased sensitivity during the treatment process. To minimize discomfort and maintain proper care, we recommend avoiding extra cold or hot food and drinks. If your gums become sore, rinse your mouth gently with warm salt water. If discomfort persists, take prescribed or over-the-counter medicine and contact our office.

Adjusting To Permanent Veneers

When permanent veneers are cemented to your teeth, it may take a few days to get used to them. Your bite might feel different, especially if you’ve changed the length or shape of your teeth. It’s also normal to experience some level of sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures. Further, your teeth and gums need some time to fully heal. To ease any discomfort, take mild pain medication.

Maintaining a good oral care routine is essential to prolonging the lifespan and beauty of your new veneer smile. Remember that the underlying teeth are still susceptible to decay and cavities and the most vulnerable parts are those where the tooth and veneer meet. Perform regular brushing and flossing, keep a healthy diet, avoid chewy or hard food (such as apples or corn on the cob), and minimize sugar-containing foods and beverages (such as soda, fruit juice, and sweetened coffee drinks.

In some cases, we recommend wearing a night guard to protect your porcelain veneers from grinding and clenching while you sleep.

Maximizing the Benefits of Your Porcelain Veneers

To ensure that your porcelain veneers give you a beautiful smile for years to come, you must adopt good dental care practices. Here are some key tips for maximizing the benefits of your veneers:

  • Regular Oral Hygiene: Maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine. Brush twice a day with a non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Floss daily to remove plaque from between your teeth and veneers.
  • Routine Dental Checkups: Schedule regular visits to your dentist in Santa Clarita for professional cleanings and checkups. These appointments are crucial for maintaining the health of your veneers and your natural teeth.
  • Avoid Hard Foods: Be cautious with hard foods like candies, ice, and nuts, which can damage veneers. Use the back teeth for chewing harder foods.
  • Limit Staining Substances: While porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, it’s advisable to limit exposure to staining agents like coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco.
  • Protect Your Veneers: If you play sports, consider wearing a mouthguard to protect your veneers from potential damage. Also, if you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about a night guard.
  • Immediate Care for Damage: If your veneer chips or cracks, contact your cosmetic dentist in Santa Clarita immediately for advice and treatment.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your porcelain veneers remain vibrant and durable.
