Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?

A beautiful Afro-American woman showing her perfect teeth in a smile.

Dental veneers are a cosmetic treatment used for almost 100 years to improve teeth appearance. The technology behind veneers has improved significantly over the last few decades – the premium option is porcelain veneers that provide a stunning new look for flawed teeth. If you have aesthetic concerns with your smile, you may wonder if porcelain veneers are a good option for improving the appearance of your teeth. Here is what you need to know about porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Veneers 101

Porcelain veneers are paper-thin shells of porcelain that are shaped to fit over the front of your teeth. Each tooth gets its own veneer that is carefully formed at a dental lab. A thin layer of enamel is removed from each tooth to allow room to bond the porcelain to the tooth. Porcelain veneers can hide:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Tooth gaps
  • Slightly crooked teeth
  • Stains or discolorations
  • Uneven teeth

Patients can have one or more teeth covered by veneers. Some patients may have all their front teeth covered, while others only have one or two teeth that need veneers. The porcelain veneers can be color-matched to blend perfectly with the natural teeth in your smile.

Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

While porcelain veneers can give you a beautiful smile, they are not right for everyone. To receive veneers, it is essential that you have good oral health and you are willing to continue caring for your smile. Veneers are not recommended if you have periodontal disease or severe tooth misalignment – these should be treated before you consider investing in porcelain veneers.

Since some enamel must be removed from the tooth to place veneers, those with minimal enamel may not be good candidates. Dr. Gutierrez can examine your teeth and determine whether veneers are right for you. There are other cosmetic procedures that can help you get the smile you want, even if you cannot use veneers.

The best dentist I've ever been to, this place is awesome ! As everyone knows, going to a dental office typically isn't a celebratory and pleasant event! However, my experience here changed my outlook on dentistry for the better. Nicole the office manager was very kind and set the appointment for me even though I had to be back to my office by 9 AM and I needed to have an appointment closer to 7 AM, she moved things around and accommodate me and promised I won’t be late to work. Veronica(who administered the X-rays and assisted Dr. Gutierrez) was thorough, kind, and very knowledgeable, which was a great start. Then Dr. Gutierrez came in to conduct the examination and assess what work needed to be performed. The sincerity she exhibited for my well being was admirable and her exceptional skill became immediately evident. I've been to several of the top dentists in Southern California, and this was by far the most impressive experience. Their price point was reasonable, the building was quite nice, and the level of care is top notch. In addition, the hygienist Stephanie was fantastic. She approached your cleaning with the perfect balance of gentleness and rigorousness. The photo studio for before and after pictures was very useful for me to see the huge difference. If you need a new dentist, this is the place. They've gained a lifelong patient in me! I hate going to the dentist. Not because I'm scared, but because I despise mouth and dental related pains. I don’t have high tolerance for pain, dental pain for whatever reason is 10 times more, but I did full sets of veneers and didn’t feel any pain! I highly recommend Majestic Smile Studio and Dr. Gutierrez and her team.
