What are veneers?

Dental veneers are a versatile, comprehensive cosmetic dental treatment that we may recommend if you are interested in achieving a full smile makeover. A veneer is a very thin, tooth-shaped shell, typically made of porcelain or resin material, that is bonded to the front portion of your existing tooth structure. Because dental veneers are made of tooth-colored materials like porcelain and resin, they are an excellent match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel. With our high-quality, custom-made dental veneers in Carlsbad, California, you can achieve a natural-looking, beautiful new smile free from cosmetic dental flaws. Dr. Steven A. Beuligmann may recommend veneers if your teeth are chipped, gapped, misshapen, cracked, broken, stained, or slightly misaligned. Veneers can give your smile a uniform, attractive appearance.

How are veneers applied?

Once you and our skilled dentist have determined that veneers are right for your smile, we will remove a small portion of tooth enamel (just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers) and take molds and impressions. These impressions are sent to a dental laboratory, where your veneers are created, then sent back to our office. At a second appointment, we will check the veneers for fit, make any needed adjustments, and cement them in place. We invite you to contact us today at our comfortable dental office to learn more about dental veneers and how we can transform your smile!
