Porcelain Veneers

One of the ways we help our patients realize their cosmetic goals is with porcelain veneers. The process of making over a smile is approached in a careful manner, taking into consideration all the factors that create a cohesive appearance, including the shape and size of your teeth, your facial features, and your personality. If you are seeking enhancement with porcelain veneers, you can benefit from choosing a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Moeckel.

Why Patients Choose Porcelain Veneers

Veneers can brighten discolored enamel, disguise chips or cracks, close gaps, perfect your smile line, and much more. While the sheaths that cover teeth may be made from composite material, we choose porcelain due to its close similarity to natural enamel. This brings out the best and most authentic appearance in your smile.

Why Patients Choose La Jolla Dentist Dr. Moeckel for Porcelain Veneers

Our veneer process begins with a comprehensive consultation. You are welcome to bring pictures that will help you communicate your desired outcome. Dr. Moeckel takes note of your personal preferences, and also takes pictures of your teeth and smile. She uses these images to create a computer simulation of the proposed enhancement. When you view this simulation, you can request any changes you would like.

Upon your approval, provisional veneers will be made. This gives you the opportunity to wear your new smile for several days before committing to a permanent change. Dr. Moeckel insists on exceptional work. Even provisional veneers are carefully evaluated using a precise checklist before they are put in your mouth. If she is not fully satisfied with the finite details of the provisionals, modifications will be requested from the dental lab.

Only when you are fully satisfied with your veneers are final porcelain restorations made. Once they are bonded to your teeth, they can last for many years with good care.

Dr. Moeckel offers a Beautiful Smile Guarantee. The veneer process can take some time due to the fact that final restorations are not placed until the desired appearance has been achieved.
