Porcelain Veneers

  • Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin, stain-resistant wafers that are bonded over the fronts of teeth to improve their appearance after they have been chipped or discolored.

Consultation and Treatment Planning

Custom-made porcelain veneers can hide many imperfections, including crooked, misaligned, chipped, and stained teeth. Dental veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics” because of their ability to eliminate gaps and give the appearance of an aligned smile in a matter of days. Dr. Streelman can determine if your smile would benefit from cosmetic adjustment with porcelain veneers during a consultation at our Oceanside office. Such a meeting also gives us the opportunity to explain the procedure to you and answer any questions you may have.

Preparing the Teeth to Receive Veneers

Dr. Streelman prepares teeth to receive veneers by filing down a small amount of tooth enamel to roughen the surfaces of the teeth and ensure that the veneers will not make them look oversized. We also offer Lumineers, which do not require the removal of any tooth enamel. An impression of the teeth is then taken so that custom porcelain veneers may be manufactured to fit the size, shape, and color of the patient’s ideal smile. Next, a dental laboratory crafts the stain-resistant porcelain veneers and sends them to our office.

Bonding the Porcelain Veneers

Dental VeneersAfter the veneers have been customized, they will be gently fitted over the original teeth. The dentist will continue to make adjustments until the veneers are in a natural and comfortable position for the patient. At this point, they will be bonded in place with a durable dental cement. Porcelain veneers are custom-fitted to your teeth using a translucent finish so that they blend in with the surrounding teeth. People won’t notice your porcelain veneers as being artificial or out of place; they’ll simply see your luminous, natural smile.

We are pleased to offer easy, NO INTEREST financing for all of your cosmetic dentistry needs.
