Porcelain Veneers An Overview

Creating the smile of your dreams!

Porcelain veneers can address one or more damaged teeth to create a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Montclair, CA dentist Dr. David Srikureja offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry solutions, including porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are designed to match seamlessly with your natural smile, creating a long-lasting, durable solution for a variety of cosmetic dental concerns. Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are designed to fit comfortably over the existing teeth.

Porcelain Veneers Can Address

  • Gapped Teeth
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Discolored Teeth
  • Cracked, Chipped, or Fractured Teeth
  • Misshapen Teeth

Dr. Srikureja will remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the affected teeth to make room for your custom porcelain veneers. Once the porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth, Dr. Srikureja will make any necessary adjustments and polish the teeth to create a beautiful, natural-looking finish.

Porcelain Veneers What to Expect

Porcelain veneers are a highly durable solution for damaged teeth. Porcelain veneers are created using a stain resistant ceramic that blends naturally with the existing smile.

Designing porcelain veneers may require 2-3 visits to our Montclair, CA dental office. Dr. Srikureja will perform a full comprehensive exam to determine the condition of your teeth and address any underlying dental concerns. If porcelain veneers are right for you, we use 3-D imaging to create impressions the teeth.

At the next visit, Dr. Srikureja will prepare the teeth to be treated by removing a minimal amount of tooth surface structure (about one half of a millimeter) for optimal, comfortable placement of the veneers. Enamel removal sometimes requires a small amount of local anesthesia, but many patients need no numbing. Dental impressions will then be taken to be used in fabricating your porcelain veneers. The impressions are sent to a trusted lab where a skilled ceramist will make your veneers by hand. Your completed restorations will be ready in approximately two to three weeks.

Once your custom-made and color matched veneers are ready, we will permanently secure them and make any necessary adjustments for fit at our Montclair, CA dentist office. Dr. Srikureja will clean your tooth to ensure a tight bond with the veneer. He’ll use bonding cement and a special light to permanently affix your veneers and revitalize your smile. In the end, patients will have a beautiful smile that can last a lifetime.

Porcelain Veneers FAQs

Does getting porcelain veneers hurt?

No. The treatment is similar to getting a tooth filled. You will feel no pain, and may not even need to get your mouth numbed. This will depend on the placement of the veneer, and other factors.

Can I whiten porcelain veneers?

No. Porcelain veneers are made of a highly stain-resistant material that is not affected by teeth whitening procedures. Porcelain veneers will almost never need to be whitened. If your veneers are discolored, we can replace them.

Will insurance cover porcelain veneers?

No. Dental insurance rarely covers elective cosmetic procedures. They may cover part of the treatment if the veneers are used to repair chipped and broken teeth. Contact your specific provider for details about your dental insurance plan.

How many porcelain veneers can I get at once?

You can get as many dental veneers as you need. There is no limit to how many you can get, but the procedure may be spread throughout a couple of days. Alternatively, you can combine porcelain veneers treatment with other cosmetic dental procedures for a full smile makeover.
