Veneers Chula Vista


The Center for Beautiful Smiles offers many cosmetic dentistry procedures to make your teeth look their best. There are many ways to make your teeth sparkle: teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, even a general teeth cleaning. Among the most popular options are dental veneers, which precisely mimic the look of natural enamel.

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin composite materials that are bonded to the front surfaces of the desired teeth. These shells are a great way to whiten your teeth instantly, and their durability guarantees that they will last for years. Composite veneers are the cheaper option, perfect for filling in chips and cracks, and even straightening crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers are more expensive, though they justify the cost with a sparkling sheen that perfectly simulates the appearance of healthy enamel. They are also stain-resistant and extremely durable.

Veneers have many uses besides teeth whitening. They can repair teeth that are chipped, broken, or worn-down, fill in the gaps between teeth, and generally help to sculpt the perfect smile.

They can be applied in just two visits to the office. The first visit consists of the dentist taking impressions of your teeth (or tooth) for the dental lab and preparing the teeth for the veneers.

How can I customize my veneers?

There are many options for customizing your veneers, besides choosing the type of material:

  • Instant veneers are pre-made, and can be attached without the hassle of taking impressions of your teeth or waiting for custom veneers to be manufactured. They are available in many colors and styles, and your dentist will help you choose the best fit for your teeth. Instant veneers are by far the cheapest and least invasive option and can be applied in a single visit. The downside is that they are less durable and do not fit as snugly as custom veneers.
  • Removable veneers are not permanently bonded to your teeth. They are ideal for patients who want a quick aesthetic adjustment. These veneers are custom-fitted to your teeth, inexpensive and flexible. The advantage is that you can wear a perfect smile whenever needed. However, this type of veneer is not a long-term solution for serious dental issues such as cracked or decayed teeth, so we recommend it only for healthy teeth.

Be aware that the veneer process involves removing about half a millimeter of enamel from the targeted teeth, corresponding to the thickness of the veneer. This step is not reversible, so make sure that you are committed to the procedure beforehand.

A temporary veneer may be used until the lab has finishing preparing the final veneers. During a second appointment Dr. Pham replaces the temporary veneers with the permanents ones, and your teeth are transformed.
