A tooth or dental veneer is a thin covering made to look exactly like a natural tooth and can be used to fix a variety of dental problems. Often referred to as “instant orthodontics,” veneers can give you a brand new, space-free, straight smile in just a couple of visits.
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that also provide restorative properties. You can get veneers if you have a serious cosmetic dental issue or if you just want to improve the look of your teeth. They’re a versatile treatment and we have options for everyone!
With porcelain veneers, you can have teeth that look great and feel amazing! The preparation process files down a portion of tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. This allows the veneer to rest comfortably in your mouth without being bulky or irritating.
Because a tooth veneer is made to look like a natural tooth, porcelain veneers can be an excellent way to improve the way your smile looks. They are a fantastic solution for diastema (gapped teeth), malocclusion (crooked teeth), or microdontia (shortened/small teeth).
While many associate porcelain veneers with cosmetic dentistry, their benefits go much further than just providing patients with a brand new, stunning smile. Made from top-tier materials like stain-resistant porcelain, tooth veneers are incredibly durable and can restore the integrity of damaged teeth or protect your natural teeth.
Here’s what veneers can do:
The high-quality porcelain that veneers are made from doesn’t just offer a brighter smile, but improves dental health as well. The porcelain is much more resilient to staining and tooth decay. They also provide excellent cover for your gums, reducing the chances of periodontal disease.
Not only do you get these oral health benefits and a beautiful new smile, your veneers won’t irritate your gums. The soft tissue of our mouths can be very sensitive, but thanks to veneers being so thin and comfortable, you have no need to worry!
Despite being incredibly thin for maximum comfort, tooth veneers are surprisingly durable thanks to their porcelain design. This makes them an ideal treatment to protect your natural teeth from further damage or enamel erosion.
So many benefits in such a little package! It’s almost unbelievable that porcelain veneers have the thickness of a contact lens but provide so much. This is thanks to the top quality material we use to create them, making veneers perfect to address your smile’s cosmetics and protect your natural teeth.
Most tooth stains can be blamed on high tannin foods like coffee, chocolate, and wine. A true shame that our favorite treats can cause dark spots and tooth stains that blemish our smiles. Luckily, veneer’s porcelain makeup is more resistant to the acidity of tannins than our natural tooth enamel.
But veneers can even be the solution to chronic tooth discoloration, caused by medical conditions such as liver disease or medication like antibiotics. No matter the reason, veneers will brighten your smile so you’ll be proud to share it!
Our practice also offers Lumineers, which are super-thin dental veneers that require very little to no tooth preparation. These prepless veneers can be placed in as little as two visits and can be removed if you want to pursue other treatments.
This makes Lumineers one of the quickest ways to get a brand new and beautifully crafted smile that will last for years to come. Get rid of stains, chips, cracks, and gaps in your teeth with prepless veneers without any need to worry about it limiting your options in the future.
Thanks to the amazing quality of our tooth veneers, they can give you a new smile that lasts. With proper care, your veneers will grant you a gorgeous grin for up to 15 years! The veneer service is a permanent one, so when your veneers wear down, you can easily get another set.
Even more impressive is the fact that your veneers won’t need any additional maintenance or expensive add-ons to keep them in optimal shape. Simply treat them like your natural teeth and brush them twice a day, floss once a day, and remember to schedule routine checkups.
Veneers are just as versatile as they are popular, being able to help improve the cosmetics of your smile while also offering restorative perks to your dental health. This means nearly anyone wanting to improve their smile or dental health is a candidate! Consider scheduling a consultation if any of the following apply to you:
If you are searching for a beautiful solution for damaged teeth or a brand new, cosmetically pleasing smile, porcelain veneers may be the answer.

With a dream team combination of talented dentists and advanced dental technology, we can get you a new, durable smile in as little as two office visits.
We take immense pride in ensuring each patient gets the comprehensive treatment they deserve to meet their dental health goals. A consultation will help determine your treatment options, including veneers.
After the consultation, treatment planning can begin—involving an examination of your teeth, digital imaging, dental impressions, and x-rays. These will help in the creation of the veneers themselves.
To ensure that your veneers are comfortable when placed, your teeth will need to be prepped for veneers by some of your enamel will need to be smoothed down—just about equal to the thickness of the veneer. This allows the veneer to be added on top without making your teeth feel bulky. It is a simple process, only requiring local anesthesia and numbing agents. We’ll make sure you feel comfortable the whole time.
Once your veneers have been crafted and your teeth prepared, we will bond your veneers to your teeth. Using a translucent finish, we will carefully apply your dental veneers to fit in perfectly with your surrounding teeth. Our dentist will be able to make any adjustments during this step, ensuring your new smile looks and feels fantastic.
We always take the time to ensure you are completely happy with your new smile.
Our porcelain veneers are crafted with comfort in mind, so there isn’t much aftercare required. Some patients may feel a slight discomfort as they adjust to their new veneers, but this will resolve itself once you get used to them.
If your natural teeth suffered from enamel erosion or damage due to bruxism, your dentist might recommend wearing a mouthguard at night to keep your veneers in tip top shape.
Helping our patients understand their oral health is important for us here at La Costa Dental Excellence. Below we’ve answered some frequently asked questions about porcelain veneers.

While veneers are an incredible treatment, there are a few issues patients need to be aware of before determining if teeth veneers are right for them:
Crafted from top-quality materials like durable, stain-resistant porcelain, tooth veneers are a fantastic long-term solution to a wide range of dental issues. When properly cared for, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years. Longevity is also a popular trait of the thinner, prepless Lumineers which can last over a decade.
With so many incredible benefits provided by porcelain veneers, many assume they require special care or complex maintenance. But that’s not the case! Once placed, you can treat your porcelain veneers like your natural teeth; keep them in peak condition through brushing, flossing, and routine dental checkups.
Incredible! A brand new smile that is just as easy to care for as your natural teeth!
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we pride ourselves on providing personalized treatment plans that are designed to meet each patient’s own goals and expectations. Our veneer treatment is no exception!

Our porcelain veneers are made from top-quality, stain-resistant materials. That natural resistance to tannins and other stains means that they cannot be whitened either. However, they are shaded to match your natural teeth, which is why you should consider any whitening options before the veneers are placed.
Once that is done and the shades are matched, you can enjoy a new, bright and white smile for years to come!
A consultation can help you decide, but here are the highlights of each.
The popularity of veneers comes from their incredible ability to provide both cosmetic and restorative benefits. Simply put, they can make your smile look beautiful while improving your dental health.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other services that have these benefits. Like dental bonding that can fix a damaged tooth in less than an hour, or a porcelain crown that can both protect and beautify a single tooth.
