Have you ever wished you could glue new pearly white covers on your teeth as quick and easy as painting a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers fgrom Marcos Ortega DDS in San Diego, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently affixed to your natural teeth.
Unlike a crown procedure, we do not need to remove tooth structure to place the restoration.
Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be produced in any size or shape.
Are veneers strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, talk to Marcos Ortega. Dr. Ortega will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.
How long do veneers last?
Some smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look terrific!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.
