Why Dental Veneers Are Worth the Investment

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain dental veneers are narrow sheets of ceramic glass that are personalized to fit over tooth stains, cracks, and gaps. The device is tooth-colored, fitting in with the rest of your mouth.

The process of installing veneers simply requires cleaning off the thin outer covering of the tooth. This helps the veneers settle in with the rest of your mouth, allowing further space for comfort.

Once this procedure is done, the veneers are simply placed in the mouth. If proper dental hygiene is kept, dental veneers should be able to last 7–15 years.

What Concerns Are Corrected With Veneers?

Physical or cosmetic issues often require porcelain dental veneers. Physical issues may include:

  • Gaps in teeth
  • Worn out or pliable teeth
  • Chips and/or cracks
  • Misalignments
  • Abnormally shaped teeth

Cosmetic issues may include:

  • Decayed enamel
  • Irregular or disproportionate gums
  • Teeth discoloration

Save years of orthodontic work for little gaps and minior misalignments with veneers! Veneers can treat many small problems all at once. Fix stains left from food, decay, and improper hygiene. Smile more with teeth that work as you do!

Veneers Look Natural

Porcelain veneers are built with the rest of your mouth in mind. These specific veneers are built to reflect light through a translucence, similar to the build of your entire mouth.

This process is done through digital imaging/radiography devices. Digital imaging machines are built to take pictures of your tooth shape and color.

Within the same day, Dr. Spencer can use the results to personalize your veneers to match the exact style and shape that your mouth needs. The end product is indistinguishable from the rest of your mouth.

Veneers Are Safe for Your Gums

We take your dental health seriously. Our La Jolla–Pacific Beach office uses quality porcelain with digital imagery that helps the porcelain assimilate with your mouth.

On top of this, Dr. Spencer makes sure that your gums will react well to the rest of your mouth. This happens through the office’s individualized procedures and proper preparation.

This allows the dental veneers to withstand decay such as gum discoloration and bothersome dark lines. However, these safeguards are conditional on maintaining good dental hygiene.

Porcelain Veneers Are Stain-Resistant

Porcelain veneers are covered with resin and stain-resistant qualities. This allows veneer patients to not eliminate various foods, but rather use them in moderation. Dental veneers only last as long as the patient is willing to take good care of them.

For example, eating acidic foods or drinking soda in excess can cause damage to your veneers. The acidic agents in these foods (such as soda or salsa) eat away at your teeth causing teeth discoloration and decay. With proper moderation and care, your dental veneers can keep looking as good as new.

Veneers Can Brighten Dark Teeth

Dental veneers help you smile more by covering any level of tooth discoloration. Many patients find that dental veneers allow dark-colored stains to appear white. Our office has the skills necessary to integrate your dental veneers effortlessly, changing your smile for the better.

Please be aware that after the procedure takes place, you will not be able to whiten your veneers.

We recommend finishing your whitening right before the veneers are placed. Frequent professional dental cleanings are also encouraged to keep teeth as fresh as possible.

Do Not Require as Much Shaping as Crowns

Dental veneers are less invasive than dental crowns because:

  • They cause minimal tooth damage: Dental crowns often require the removal of large parts of the tooth. Dental veneers differ by only smoothing down the front of your tooth enamel so the veneer doesn’t add extra bulk.
  • They fit better than dental crowns: Dr. Weston Spencer fits your veneers by taking images/measurements of your mouth. Based on these findings, he will personalize your veneers to fit your mouth’s measurements and specifications.

Porcelain Veneers Care

Here are the basics of taking care of your veneers:

  • Avoid biting on tough food and ice: This can cause significant damage to your veneers and the rest of your mouth.
  • Be sure to wear dental protection while playing sports: Be prepared with mouth guards, especially with high-contact sports.
  • Stick to the basics by brushing/flossing regularly: Continuing the same dental habits will be very helpful to keep your veneers just like new!
  • Do not grind your teeth: If grinding your teeth is habitual, consider regularly using a mouth guard to avoid corrosion.

What Makes a Porcelain Veneers Candidate?

Ideal candidates for porcelain veneers understand that the process is permanent. Dental veneers require removing a small amount of tooth enamel so the veneers blend in with the rest of your teeth. This process cannot be undone, so those wanting temporary coverage should look into other dental options.

Dental veneers are ideal for those dealing with cracks, gaps, or discoloration in their teeth. Veneers restore, rather than entirely replace, the tooth. This keeps the structure of your teeth intact while fixing the issues holding you back.

How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist for Porcelain Veneers

If you want to smile more, look for a trusted cosmetic dentist for your veneers. Patients should primarily look for high-quality veneer labs for optimal results.

The best veneer labs create highly durable veneers. With this in mind, patients will postpone having to spend more money when their material lasts the longest.

Dr. Weston Spencer’s La Jolla and Pacific Beach dentistry specializes in cosmetic dentistry and uses current, cutting-edge technology for our treatments. This provides you with the biggest bang for your buck!

Placing Your Dental Veneers

Diagnosis and Treatment Planning

Before the procedure begins, you will first talk with Dr. Spencer about how to help your teeth. Be vocal with the exact results you wish to achieve. He will observe your teeth and mouth and take x-rays or impressions if necessary.

This step is important to make sure that your teeth are in proper condition to receive dental veneers. Be sure to resolve any issues with your oral health before placing your veneers.

Tooth Preparation

Next, the dentist will shape the surface of each tooth to accommodate the thickness of the veneer being added. This helps the teeth complement the additional veneer.

The dentist will then make an impression of the impacted teeth. Once this shell is complete, it is sent to dental laboratories to make a permanent fit that fits your mouth precisely.

Dr. Spencer is also able to make temporary veneers during this process.

Veneer Bonding

Dr. Weston Spencer will then bond the veneer to your teeth after the model is received. He will look at how the veneer fits and make continuous last-minute adjustments to fit the teeth in your mouth.

After the veneer fits perfectly in your mouth, the end result is permanently cemented. The dentist will finalize the procedure by etching the veneer onto your teeth.

The veneer's color will come from the cement used.

Aftercare and Maintenance

After these procedures, Dr. Spencer will adjust the veneers to fit the overall bite of your mouth.

We want to keep you smiling more, so we will require you to come back for some follow-up appointments to:

  • Maintain the health of the veneers.
  • Check the gumline’s reaction to the veneers.
  • Make adjustments if necessary.
  • Perform cleanings for the teeth’s appearance.

Read This Before Considering Dental Veneers

Often, the circumstances below are resolved through regular cleanings and further dental work. However, please let your dentist know if you experience any abnormal symptoms that require accommodation.

Safety comes first with Dr. Spencer. With this in mind, do your part by making sure that you are in optimal health before implementing veneers.

This includes knowing that your oral health is satisfactory by being up-to-date on your dental cleaning and resolving any cavities or gum diseases.

Additionally, ensure that any existing health issues that affect oral health are in check before inquiring about veneers.

Some disadvantages of porcelain veneers may include the following:

  • Veneers are permanent. To firmly place dental veneers, a thin layer of enamel must be removed to make way for the veneer. This process is irreversible once completed.
  • They can still be damaged. If you have problems with teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism), you can easily damage your veneers unless you use a mouth guard for protection.

Expect your first set of porcelain veneers to last roughly 15–20 years.

Veneers are built to last long-term, but oftentimes the patient’s circumstance will require the veneers to adapt positively or negatively. As a result, there is no set date on how long veneers last.

However, you can do your part to make sure that your veneer lasts by scheduling regular dental exams and by practicing proper dental hygiene

Porcelain veneers do not require specific procedures of care.

Still, be careful with how you use your dental veneers. Be sure to primarily take care of your oral health by brushing your teeth and flossing regularly. This will help your dental veneers last as long as they can.

Likewise, avoid using your veneers as scissors (such as opening lids) or eating hard objects. This will cause permanent damage to the veneer.

The cost of dental veneers depends on the complexity of the treatment, and whether you want one tooth covered or a whole new smile. This can only be determined through a consultation with Dr. Weston Spencer.

Dr. Spencer will update you with the current pricing packages at our office and payment information at the consultation.

Our office services all PPO insurance policies. We also offer monthly payment plans.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to whiten your teeth after placing dental veneers. Teeth whitening corrodes the composite resin, which is what retains the color of your teeth.

Dr. Spencer recommends whitening teeth right before the veneers are placed so the new veneers can be color-matched to your freshly whitened teeth. Regular professional dental cleanings are also encouraged to keep teeth as fresh as possible.

Compared to composite veneers, porcelain veneers are:

  • Stronger: Porcelain veneers last up to 15 years with proper care and maintenance. Composite veneers can only last up to seven.
  • Better-Looking: Porcelain is built to reflect light through a translucence; similar to the build of the mouth.
  • Highly Adaptable: Porcelain veneers have been proven to be more practical and adjustable, allowing your surfaces to fit right in.

Sometimes, porcelain veneers may not be a solid option for effective service.

In this case, the dentist may recommend the following options:

  • Dental Bonding: Dental bonding repairs broken teeth by using composite resin directly.
  • Porcelain Crowns: Porcelain crowns replace the tooth’s base.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign straightens teeth without the use of generic braces.
  • Teeth Whitening: Sometimes a whitening is all you need!
