Porcelain Veneers Overview of Procedure

Overview of Porcelain Veneers

When you have healthy teeth and gums, but you still see yourself as having a “flawed” smile, it could be that you need or want a bit of cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Wali Hamidy DMD at La Jolla Dental Image in La Jolla, CA offers patients the opportunity to enjoy the very healthiest teeth and gums, and also improve them with many cosmetic treatments, including one of the most popular of all – porcelain veneers.

As your preferred dentist in La Jolla, Dr. Hamidy is also a skilled cosmetic dentist offering a wide array of treatments that include simple whitening to full-blown smile makeovers. However, it is dental veneers or porcelain veneers that provide a good solution for many patients.

Porcelain veneers are a lot like their name describes – they are crafted of durable and long lasting porcelain, and they are crafted in a way that is similar to a classic veneer. They are meant to provide a thin, but fully functional, coat for the outer surface of a tooth. This is why they can be so easily relied upon to provide an instant smile makeover! Dr. Hamidy can precisely measure and place an entire set of veneers, helping patients overcome issues such as:

  • Stains that cannot be eliminated through whitening
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Teeth of uneven length or shape
  • Teeth that are gapped and/or uneven
  • Crooked teeth

Whether you need just one veneer or an entire set, they can be easily made to your needs, and to match the color and look of your natural teeth. Dr. Hamidy will first meet with you and be sure that your teeth and gums are in optimal condition. If there is the need for any preventative or general dentistry, this must be done to ensure the best results.

Then, you are precisely measured for your porcelain veneers, and your teeth are prepared to accept them. Temporary veneers are placed while yours are made, and in just a few days, Dr. Hamidy will bond the permanent set and you will have an instantly flawless smile!
