How Do Veneers Work?
How Do I Know If Veneers Are Right for Me?
Treatment with porcelain veneers requires a certain amount of tooth enamel. Before placing a traditional dental veneer, our dentists need to remove a thin layer of enamel from the tooth surface in order to achieve a natural appearance. Patients with very worn or thin enamel may not be eligible.
If you grind your teeth or clench your jaw, you may need to resolve the issue before having veneers placed. This is because teeth grinding can fracture porcelain veneers. Some patients can protect their new smile with the use of an oral appliance while they sleep.

What Do Veneers Cost?
The overall cost of porcelain veneer treatment varies from case to case depending on a number of factors, including:
- The number of teeth being treated
- The type of material used
- The construction method of the chosen material
- The amount of customization requested
During your consultation, our dentists will review all of these factors so that you can achieve your desired outcome within your budget. That being said, you can expect to pay anywhere from $1,100 to $1,800 per tooth. Perfect Smiles California offers payment plans and third-party financing to help you reach your cosmetic goals.
Top-of-the-Line Materials Only the Best for Our Patients
At Perfect Smiles California, we craft veneers out of a state-of-the-art material known as IPS e.max. This porcelain ceramic is designed by Ivoclar Vivadent, one of the world's most innovative dental technology companies. There are multiple types of IPS e.max ceramics that can be chosen based on your specific needs and budget. We choose to use this material because it is:
- Remarkably strong: A veneer made of IPS e.max can strengthen a tooth that is structurally compromised. IPS e.max veneers are the best veneer option for patients who suffer from teeth grinding and jaw clenching.
- Incredibly lifelike: IPS e.max veneers are made by layering porcelain to create a restoration that closely resembles the color, translucency, and shape of your natural teeth.
- Easily adaptable: No two smiles are the same, and no two patients have the same cosmetic goals. Fortunately, IPS e.max can be altered and shaped to meet your exact needs.
Porcelain Veneers FAQ
Why wouldn't I choose teeth whitening to address discoloration?
It is true that whitening treatment is less invasive than placing porcelain veneers, making it a more preferable choice for many patients. However, some stains are too deep in the enamel and simply won't respond to whitening. In those cases, porcelain veneers can obscure the discoloration and produce a bright, attractive smile.
Can porcelain veneers be used to replace a missing tooth?
No. Veneers attach to the surface of teeth, so they aren't a viable solution for patients with missing teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth, consider dental implants as a solution for restoring your smile. We offer complimentary consultations to patients interested in implant dentistry.
Will insurance cover porcelain veneers?
No. As a purely cosmetic service, dental veneers are not covered by insurance. However, we make veneers affordable for all of our patients in Chula Vista, National City, and greater San Diego through payment plans and third-party financing.
