Beautiful Results, No Plastic Surgery
You can have the smile you’ve always wanted with porcelain veneers in San Francisco. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are custom crafted and bonded to your teeth to correct the color and the shape of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are much different than old-fashioned “caps” that were thick and had dark metal underneath. Veneers are a minimally invasive dental procedure that produce beautiful improvements in your look without plastic surgery. Porcelain veneers are strong, beautiful, natural looking, and they bond to your teeth with a very strong adhesive. They become a part of you and feel like your own teeth.
You can eat with them, smile with them, and kiss with them! As you may have seen on T.V. makeover shows, porcelain veneers have been known to change not only the appearance of a smile, but also the lives of many lucky patients. If you want to look your best in as little as 2 visits, Dr. Bernstein can help you design a beautiful smile using porcelain veneers.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are very thin porcelain laminates that are placed on the front surface of the tooth. Generally, Dr. Bernstein removes a small portion of the enamel on the tooth before the porcelain laminates are fitted and bonded to the surface of the tooth. The bonding of the porcelain laminates strengthens the tooth and gives it an aesthetic look at the same time.
What types of conditions can Porcelain Veneers fix?
- Porcelain veneers can be used for various purposes:
- Broken/chipped teeth
- Crooked/misaligned teeth
- Discolored/stained teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Worn teeth
Dr. Bernstein often uses veneers on multiple teeth – both top and bottom for full smile makeovers.
