Choosing Porcelain Veneers San Diego Patients Find Truly Transformative
Porcelain veneers provide a beautiful, smile-enhancing and natural-looking option for improving the appearance of teeth that are compromised by discoloration, cracks and other kinds of flaws. At Brighton Dental in San Diego, Dr. Daniel Vinograd uses porcelain veneers to help San Diego residents get the sparkling, confident smile they’ve been lacking.
No other cosmetic dentistry treatment is as versatile and potentially transformative for a patient as porcelain veneers. At Brighton Dental, a San Diego dental practice that does whatever it takes to make a real difference, we use these veneers as the key to dramatic smile makeovers. For beauty, reliability and durably, there’s no better choice. And they look perfectly natural too.

Understanding Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are finely crafted from thin sheets of ceramic glass and are shaped to fit in front of your own natural teeth and provide a beautiful, natural option when you have discoloration, chips, cracks, old dental work or other flaws that need to be concealed for a better smile. At Brighton Dental, we use porcelain veneers as an instant orthodontics fix and as an alternative to more costly and time-consuming treatments. If you prefer a more comprehensive makeover of your smile, we can provide teeth whitening and more extensive procedures along with veneers.
When you choose porcelain veneers, you can get a stunningly beautiful smile in only two office visits. And the appearance is more realistic than you might imagine. That’s because of the way the light reflects on the porcelain. The porcelain is translucent like real tooth enamel, so some light passes through the surface while some is reflected. Add to this the right sizing, shaping, texture and color and you’ll have great looking veneers that look like real teeth.
Placing Your Porcelain Veneers
It all begins with a consultation in our San Diego dental office. During this meeting and assessment, our team will help you decide if you’re a good candidate for veneers and use digital imagining to create a mockup of how your smile will look once the veneers are places. You fully participate in the design of your smile, and it’s up to you to decide whether they can provide the look you want.
Once you’ve been determined to be a good candidate and you decide to go ahead with the veneers, we take a digital impression of your teeth and send it to a master ceramist who custom-crafts the right pieces for you. Temporary veneers are installed in most cases. Once the permanent pieces are ready, you simply return to our San Diego office and the porcelain veneers are bonded to the visible surface of your teeth. You leave this second appointment with finished veneers and a beautiful smile that will last for years when properly maintained.
