Porcelain Dental Veneers
To enhance, restore, and transform your smile, Dr. Cathy Santone, our cosmetic dentist, can perform treatment with porcelain dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin, durable, enamel-like coverings that reinforce your teeth while remaining virtually undetectable to the naked eye. They are long-lasting and resistant to staining, which makes them one of the best cosmetic dentistry procedures available. Porcelain veneers are commonly used in the smile makeovers process, they give Dr. Santone the ability to create the flawless, natural-looking smiles that can boost confidence and change lives. Dr. Santone is extensively trained and she is one of the few San Diego cosmetic dentists accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. She prides herself on retaining as much of the natural tooth structure as possible during the porcelain veneer procedure to ensure optimal oral health.

Benefits of Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain dental veneers are custom-designed, durable shells that Dr. Santone bonds to the front surfaces of a patient’s teeth. They are an excellent alternative to cosmetic bonding when more extensive repairs are needed. The following is a list of common applications and patient concerns Dr. Santone typically uses veneers to correct.
- Replace worn tooth enamel
- Correct misaligned, chipped, or fractured teeth
- Whiten teeth by concealing stains
Porcelain Dental Veneer Procedure
As porcelain dental veneers are designed to correct a number of cosmetic dentistry issues, Dr. Santone recognizes that each veneer is as unique as the patient she is performing the procedure for. Molded from thin, yet extremely durable ceramic shells, the veneers are custom-fit and color-matched to the surrounding teeth to provide a completely seamless smile. Once the veneers have been designed and fitted, Dr. Santone will attach it to the tooth with a strong adhesive cement, which creates a natural smile that will last for years.
