Porcelain Veneers

Have you seen advertising for straight, white teeth in only two visits?

The application of porcelain dental veneers is the dental office procedure being used to obtain these remarkable results. 

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory.  They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.

Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They are designed to correct the appearance of a range on dental issues including: stains, discoloration, gaps, chips and misalignment. Porcelain dental veneers look and feel like natural teeth. The team at Phillips and Jue Dental has extensive experience in sculpting veneers ranging from repairing a chipped tooth to creating an entirely new smile.

As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement.  They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile.

What does getting porcelain veneers involve?

Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure.  The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer.  A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.

On the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond.  Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.

Our Bakersfield office will provide you with care instructions for veneers.  Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
