Porcelain Veneers in Lakeside District

If you are hiding your smile due to dental imperfections, you may benefit from the attractive, minimally-invasive option of porcelain veneers. At Papillon Dental Arts, we recommend these discreet yet durable restorations for their ability to emulate natural dentition while providing long-lasting results.

What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers offer the advantage of cosmetically improving your dental condition, while also conserving a great deal of the healthy, existing structure of your teeth. As a result, we may recommend veneers as an alternative to crowns when moderate treatment is more appropriate to achieve desired results.

In particular, porcelain has unique properties that make it ideal for use as veneers. Porcelain can endure normal dental function, even when thin pieces are used.  Additionally, a variety of genuine shades and shapes can be reproduced with porcelain veneers. At our San Francisco dental office, we have noticed that a number of common defects to our patients’ smiles can be corrected with porcelain veneers, ultimately improving the entire smile.

Some of these conditions include:

·         Crooked or misshapen teeth

·         Worn or chipped teeth

·         Extensively stained or discolored teeth

·         Inappropriately sized teeth (too large or small)

·         Undesired spaces between teeth

As an added benefit to correcting defects with porcelain veneers, the custom fit to your front facing dentition gives your restoration a pleasant and uniform appearance.

Receiving Porcelain Veneers

Our goal at Papillon Dental Arts is to achieve the best results possible and preserve the oral health of our patients with minimal impact to underlying dental structures and composition. To achieve this goal, the process of getting porcelain veneers can include multiple visits with us and a dental technician. To ensure the best aesthetic results, we will work with you and a specialized aesthetic dental laboratory to create a blue print for your new smile. In extensive cases our patients will also have the opportunity to "test drive" their new smile before we proceed to the final restorations. Once our patient is happy with the blue prints of their new smile, we will proceed to the next step. At this stage, the teeth are prepared for your new veneers, an impression, or mold of your teeth is taken so that your veneers can be fabricated to the specific dimensions of your smile. Throughout this procedure, there will be a very close collaboration with the lab technician to create the custom shapes and shades for your new veneers. 

After the procedure, you will receive care instructions, including recommendations for your daily brushing and flossing routine. Regular follow-up visits with we are also recommended to enhance the longevity of your porcelain veneers. A night guard may be recommended to protect your new investment in your smile. At these visits to our San Francisco dental practice, your restorations can be assessed for replacement due to normal wear.
