WHAT ARE PORCELAIN VENEERS?
A tooth veneer is a thin artificial covering placed on a chipped, broken, stained, misshapen or otherwise afflicted tooth to improve the aesthetics of a smile. Porcelain veneers combine the benefits of dental veneers with the beauty of porcelain, creating a fantastic and natural-looking tooth.

BENEFITS OF DENTAL VENEERS IN SAN DIEGO
VERSATILITY | Maybe one of the most remarkable aspects of dental veneers is
how versatile they are. Dr. Ortega, is able to utilize porcelain veneers to correct many different smile aesthetic concerns. Porcelain veneers can turn a less than ideal smile into a bright, straight and beautifully natural looking smile.
NATURAL LOOKING | Porcelain offers a wonderfully natural looking solution because of its “translucent” properties—allowing light to enter the material and imitate the shine and translucency of natural teeth.
STAIN RESISTANT | Just like mom’s fine porcelain china, porcelain dental veneers resist stains and always clean up nicely when cared for with a proper dental hygiene routine. Even after years of normal eating and drinking, a porcelain tooth veneer resists discoloration or yellowing.
BLEND IN | Dr. Ortega makes sure that your porcelain veneers match your smile in regards to shape, size, fit and coloration. In other words, people won’t perceive an obvious difference in your smile between your natural teeth and your new porcelain dental veneers.
GENTLE PROCEDURE | Because placing a tooth veneer is so non-invasive, the treatment is relatively simple, doesn’t require significant prep work in most cases and is very comfortable.
