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.
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.
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.
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:
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:
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:
Sometimes, porcelain veneers may not be a solid option for effective service.
In this case, the dentist may recommend the following options:

I've been going to Dr. Spencer's office for almost 15 years now and they have always had outstanding customer service. On Monday, Taylor took her time to answer all of my questions and concerns with patience and kindness. She even helped me put on my favorite show to watch while she cleaned my teeth! Thank you to the whole staff for making my teeth cleaning experience so enjoyable.
Another great experience at the dentist today. Ashley, my dental hygienist, is very thorough. She is outstanding. This office is beautiful & I really like the massage chair. La Jolla can be very busy but they have free parking in the parking structure. I regularly refer people to Dr Spencer. 5 stars
The dental practice is top notch. The space has been renovated. It is sleek, bright, and inviting. Everyone i have encountered there is helpful and cordial. The dental hygienist Ashley is gentle, meticulous, and thoroughly professional. Dr. Spencer is excellent and knows how to manage a successful practice. Highly recommended.
This office is seriously the best! I’ve never loved going to the dentist, but this office makes the experience enjoyable! When I go in here I always feel comfortable and the experience has always been 10/10! I always see Ashley for my teeth cleanings. She does an amazing job and is so efficient and gentle. Such a great office!
Great office. Dr. Spencer and all his staff are always a pleasure. Appreciate how they run on time and don't try to push me into treatments I don't want. Taylor is great for cleanings--quick, painless, and fun. I'm amazed at how she remembers everything we talked about 6 months ago. The best!
