Porcelain Veneers Overview
Porcelain veneers offered by Finest City Dental are a reliable, effective method to enhance your smile and conceal crooked, chipped, stained, or decayed teeth. The veneers are thin shells crafted with porcelain, which are secured to the front of the teeth to enhance the look of your smile. Offering personalized porcelain veneers that require no prep, general dentist Dr. Nick Dovey will help to improve the size, color, length, or shape of your teeth. Schedule a consultation at our San Diego, CA office to find out more information about veneers and decide if they're appropriate for your goals.
Best Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
Cosmetic veneers are often used to hide stains and chips in your teeth, improve the look of worn down or misaligned teeth, and address teeth that are unevenly spaced or shaped. At Finest City Dental, your cosmetic veneers will be custom created to fit snugly over your teeth for an appealing and natural look. During your consultation, Dr. Dovey will listen to your objectives and concerns so he can personalize your procedure. He may also determine whether you're a good candidate for cosmetic veneers by analyzing the total health of your mouth. To be a candidate, you shouldn't exhibit symptoms of gum problems, or routinely grind your teeth and clench your jaw.
What To Expect with Porcelain Veneers
When you've decided on your personalized treatment program with Dr. Dovey, he will take dental impressions of your teeth. Your cosmetic veneers will then be sent to a dental lab where your veneers will be made from high-quality porcelain. As soon as your custom veneers are prepared, Dr. Dovey will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth. This allows room for the porcelain veneers and enhances the bond for a more natural outcome that lasts longer. When your porcelain veneers are secured, Dr. Dovey will make small adjustments so that your veneers fit well.
Porcelain Veneers Recovery
Since getting veneers usually doesn't require anesthesia, you should be able to return to your usual routine following your appointment. You might experience sensitivity to cold and hot meals for a couple of days, but this will go away. Veneers should be cared for just like your own natural teeth with daily flossing and brushing. While cosmetic veneers are stain resistant compared to your natural teeth, you still need to stay away from staining drinks and foods to keep your veneers white. To prevent chipping your veneers, you shouldn't chew on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice. You should also continue to attend your annual dental examinations and bi-annual cleanings at Finest City Dental so our team can monitor the condition of your cosmetic veneers, teeth, and general oral health. Dr. Dovey will let you know if your porcelain veneers need to be replaced or repaired during these appointments.
Porcelain Veneers Insurance Coverage
Porcelain veneers are an elective treatment so they're generally not included in dental insurance. Finest City Dental does accept many payment options, such as low-interest medical financing, to help make your veneers more affordable. During your appointment, Dr. Dovey will personalize your plan to meet your needs and budget. He will discuss a quote for your veneers and explore your payment choices.
