Porcelain veneers are layers of tooth-colored porcelain or composite that are placed over the superficial portions of your teeth to restore various types of imperfections. It is a cosmetic dental procedure completed by our experienced Pasadena dentist Dr. Bouzoghlanian.

Porcelain veneers are used for correcting dental problems like worn tooth enamel, tooth misalignment, spaces or gaps between teeth, tooth discoloration, small looking teeth, replacing large old fillings, as well as chips or cracks.

Porcelain veneers are durable and long-lasting, usually ranging anywhere from 10-20 years. The porcelain veneer itself does not have life, but is bonded to a natural tooth which does live and can change over time. An example of this is gum line receding which can expose the root surfaces of the tooth. However, veneers can be replaced and even re-bonded if they come off for any reason.

Not necessarily. Cosmetic dentistry is often referred to as a form of art, and our experienced Pasadena dentist (Dr. Bouzoghlanian) will look at your particular case during consultation for smile design and select the proper veneer colors and shapes to use. Depending on the color of the natural teeth, and individual preferences, the veneers may be lighter in color than the natural teeth, or they may be selected to match the existing color. If the individual wants the upper veneers to look whiter and brighter than the existing lower teeth, then we can discuss options to change the color of the lower teeth also. This is commonly done by tooth whitening.

Your teeth are still at risk for cavities even if you have porcelain veneers because they are bonded to the front of your natural teeth. We recommend maintaining excellent oral care habits and care for your teeth just as you did prior to getting veneers.

Generally no. Porcelain veneers are created to maintain their color over time. However, we do recommend limiting contact with substances that stain as well as smoking.

Some insurances cover a percentage of the cost, but it all depends on which insurance company you have as well as the specific insurance plan you hold. We will be happy to contact your insurance company to determine the coverage details you have. Our dental office in Pasadena believes in affordable dentistry so please take a look at our current specials; you may be able to save on porcelain veneers.

Not at all. Our experienced cosmetic dentist in Pasadena will be able to decide which procedure is correct for you after a full examination. Smile makeovers can involve veneers, tooth whitening, crowns, orthodontics, dental implants and other dental procedures or a combination of them. At our Prestige Dental office in Pasadena, our dentist will customize a plan to provide you with a natural looking, beautiful smile!
