San Diego Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin laminates of porcelain which are bonded to the tooth surface. Probably the most esthetic means for enhancing a smile, veneers are a popular treatment for a variety of smile problems.
Porcelain veneers are the ultimate restoration for spaces, chips, fractures, rotated or misaligned teeth, unshapely or discolored teeth; allowing alteration of tooth position, shape, size and color. The end result, a dramatic cosmetic makeover.
Although the procedure is somewhat similar to crowns. This treatment requires a minimal amount of tooth reduction and is, therefore, a relatively conservative technique.

- Treatment Procedure
The procedure requires two appointments. At the first appointment the face/s of the tooth, or teeth, is prepared by minimal reduction of 0.5 to 0.75 mm in order to make room for the porcelain laminate. An impression (or, mould) is then taken of the prepared tooth for fabrication at a laboratory, and a plastic temporary veneer fitted, where possible, for the interim period. Laboratory fabrication takes approximately 2 week. At the subsequent visit, the temporary veneer/s is removed and the final veneer/s is permanently bonded into place.
