Laguna Niguel Dental Veneers

Rejuvenate Your Smile at OC Lifetime Dental

Smiling couple on boatWhen it comes to smile makeovers with dental veneers, our practice does things differently than most dentists. Here you’re able to experience a smile design process that lets you see and feel what your results will look like well before your permanent veneers are made.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that we bond over the front of your upper anterior teeth, changing the way your smile looks. We can match them to photographs of you at a younger age or against pictures you’ve found in magazines if you like.

By adhering a veneer to a healthy tooth, we instantly change what’s visible from another person’s vantage point. Veneers give you the fastest and most dramatic smile makeover possible, without having to whiten your teeth or wear braces.

Smile Design: Preview Your Treatment

After we’ve discussed what you’re looking for in your new smile, we’ll incorporate your physical appearance into the design process. Everything from your lips, eyes and other facial features are taken into account. We want your new smile to look natural and beautiful.

Your smile design will consist of a series of photographs and molds of your teeth that we use to create a replica (wax-up) of your proposed veneers case. The template will be ready in about 10 days, so we will have you return for a follow-up consultation to evaluate the shape, length and contour of each tooth. If you’re not 100% pleased with the proposed design, we can adjust it accordingly until you are.

What to Expect

If you’re ready to move forward with treatment, we’ll start the process of prepping your teeth. Crowns can be combined with veneers, if needed, depending on if you have teeth with structural damage. We can even create a wearable mock-up that is bonded as your temporary restorations while the permanent veneers are being crafted.

You’ll have about 2-3 weeks to wear your temporaries or mock-up to identify any final changes you would like to make. We hold our standards high regarding the exact shape and shade of each veneer and work closely with our lab should even the smallest angle need to be adjusted.

Finally, your permanent porcelain veneers will be ready for delivery. They’ll be a better and more aesthetically pleasing replica of the preview you’ve already been wearing.

Reasons to Get Dental Veneers

Some of the most common reasons why people invest in smile makeovers with dental veneers include instances involving

  • Always feeling self-conscious about your teeth
  • Misshaped, chipped or gapped teeth
  • Deep discoloration and stain
  • Teeth that are crooked or slightly crowded

Whether you want to look your best for an important upcoming event or simply want to have a smile you feel confident in, dental veneers can make beautiful teeth a reality.
