What are dental veneers? Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made porcelain coatings which cover the front surface of the tooth and enhance your smile's total appearance. The tooth-colored coatings are bonded to the front of your teeth to make them taller, straighter, whiter, and exactly how you've always wanted. In addition to the six hundred thousand patients who get veneers every year, veneers are still a favorite procedure for Hollywood celebrities, including Tom Cruise, George Clooney, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It's time you get your movie-perfect smile, just as you've dreamed of! Let us help you achieve a total smile makeover with our Tustin office's porcelain veneers. Call us today at (714) 795-3865, and we'll work with you to craft you a wonderful, beautiful smile.
The Dental Veneers Process
Get excited for your new smile as our cosmetic dentists walk you through the whole process!
Are you ready to begin your new life with porcelain dental veneers? Great! Our Tustin cosmetic dentists want you to stay confident and excited for your upcoming treatment, so we've prepared a step-by-step look at the whole procedure for you. During your initial smile consultation, we'll discuss your goals for your smile as well as any prerequisites you may need to meet to begin your smile journey. This may be anything from cavity and gum disease treatment to orthodontic work to ensure your natural smile is healthy and ready for veneers. If you're already a perfect candidate for veneers, then we'll work with you to come up with a model for what your new tooth will look like. We take the color, shape, and feel of your veneers into account when making your final veneers. If you have any questions about your veneers or the specifics of the veneer process, we're happy to answer them before moving forward.
In your first procedure visit, we'll be placing temporary veneers over your teeth in our labs. Your teeth will need to be prepped beforehand so that your veneers fit smoothly and seamlessly onto your current smile. Your cosmetic dentist will gently remove a 0.5mm thin layer of your outer tooth enamel, removing any plaque and decay with it. We'll then take impressions of your teeth to be sent to our lab for your porcelain veneers to be made. Temporary veneers will be placed on your teeth while your permanent ones are being made. Once the wait is over, your completed permanent veneers will replace your temporaries, enhancing your smile for years to come. Once we finish bonding your porcelain veneers to your teeth with dental cement, you're ready to go! There is no recovery period for veneers. In fact, you can eat and drink as you normally would, once you return home!

Veneers Or Braces: Which Is Right For You?
Our cosmetic dentists want you to correct your smile's orthodontic problems
on your terms by providing multiple options for straightening your teeth
While dental braces are the most common way to straighten crooked teeth, they're not the only one. Veneers are often used to correct misaligned teeth, but when are they the best way to achieve straight teeth? Here's a quick rundown: Porcelain veneers are much quicker than braces because they focus on cosmetic fixes, not structural ones. With slight or mild crookedness, we can change the outer appearance of your tooth to make it look straight.
We can also fill any gaps between teeth with veneers, rather than physically moving your current teeth into their proper placement. Dental veneers are usually chosen when only one or a few teeth need improving, not an entire smile of crooked and misaligned teeth. Braces take months to complete, but they are much more comprehensive when aligning your smile. They can tackle much more severe orthodontic issues, including jaw and bite problems,
as they shift an entire mouth into its best position. Dental braces can fix wide gaps, crookedness, overcrowding, underbite, overbite, crossbite, and open bite. For patients with more extensive orthodontic problems, our cosmetic dentists may recommend that you receive braces treatment before correcting other aesthetic concerns (chips, cracks, stains, etc.) with dental veneers.
Are veneers high maintenance?
Veneers are super easy to take care of! Just like with natural teeth, you should be sure to brush twice a day and floss once a day as well as come into our Tustin dental office for routine cleanings and exams twice a year. If you grind your teeth, our dentists may also recommend that you wear a bite guard at night to protect your veneers from damage. Generally, as long as you keep your teeth clean and healthy and you don't apply too much pressure or force on your veneers in your day-to-day life, you can see your veneers last you for decades!
Which is better: bonding or veneers?
The answer to the eternal dental bonding vs veneers question depends on your preference. While porcelain veneers are much longer-lasting and can deal with more severe cosmetic issues, they also require you to prepare your teeth for them. The entire process of shaving down the surface of your teeth to placing your permanent veneers takes 2 separate visits, and the effects on your teeth last a lifetime. Unlike veneers, bonding only takes a single appointment and doesn't require permanent changes to your natural tooth. And while the composite resin in bonding can need replacing more than a decade earlier, bonding is often much less than what dental veneers cost. This cost-effectiveness is often a huge draw for patients.
Are veneers worth it?
While veneers are more costly than tooth bonding, they're well worth the price! Veneers can completely remake your smile so that you're always proud and happy to show off your pearly whites, which is a totally life-changing experience for many of our patients. And unlike bonding, veneers are incredibly long-lasting and strong, handling the ordinary pressures of biting and chewing food with ease. They're also resistant to stains, meaning you won't have to worry about whitening your teeth for the 15 to 25 years you have your beautiful veneers.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
On average, porcelain veneers last 10 to 15 years. However, the durability of your veneers depends on how well you take care of them, as you might imagine. With exceptional care and dental hygiene, our patients often see their veneers last more than 25 years.
Who is a good candidate for veneers?
To be a good candidate for veneers, not only should you have several or minor aesthetic dental issues you want to correct, but your mouth should be in relatively good health. Cavities and gum disease can do a lot of damage and make many changes to your smile. Make sure that any decay of gum disease you have is treated before starting the veneers process. Additionally, you must have enough healthy tooth enamel left so that we can bond your veneers to it after prepping your smile.
Can you tell if someone has veneers?
When you have a skilled and attentive cosmetic dentist on your side, like our incredible staff at Gold Coast Dental in Tustin, your porcelain veneers will look completely natural. We custom design your veneers to blend in flawlessly with the rest of your smile. We shape each veneer to appear natural and healthy and take your teeth's color into account. Your Tustin cosmetic dentist will choose the exact shade of white to either match your current smile or enhance it by multiple shades to a natural, healthy shine.
