How Do Veneers Work?

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells that our dentists attach to the front surfaces of teeth in order to conceal discoloration, cracks, or other cosmetic concerns. They may be made out of materials like resin or porcelain. With veneers, the team at our Chula Vista, CA, cosmetic dentistry practice can give you an attractive smile you can be happy to show off to the world.

Before we place your veneers, our dentists will meet with you for a consultation. We will discuss your smile goals and explain the possibilities that veneers have to offer.


In order to ensure that your veneers fit properly, our dentists will carefully remove a very thin layer of enamel from your tooth. It will be completely painless.


We will take impressions of your tooth or teeth so that your veneers fit securely. This will also allow them to blend in with the rest of your beautiful smile.


Once your IPS e.max®  veneers are ready, our dentists will place them over your tooth. They will secure the veneers, allowing your stunning new smile to last for up to 10 years.

Using advanced dentistry and precision technology, we can place veneers in just a couple of appointments.

How Do I Know If Veneers Are Right for Me?

During a consultation at our Chula Vista, CA, dental practice, our dentists can review your candidacy for porcelain veneers. Keep in mind that dental veneers require permanent alterations to the enamel of a treated tooth, so you need to be confident that you want veneers for the rest of your life. If you are ready to make a permanent change to achieve a beautiful smile, candidacy requirements for veneers include:

Sufficient Enamel

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.

No Grinding

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.

Minor Alignment Issues

We can use porcelain veneers to quickly address cosmetic issues like small gaps or minor misalignment. However, teeth that are severely misaligned are better treated with orthodontic treatments such as Quick Aligners or ClearCorrect®.

In the past when seeking dental treatment the dental plan was lengthly expensive and stressful. My first interaction with Perfect smile was great. From Receptionist, Dental Assistant and Doctor i felt important and that they would take care of my dental needs. I came to perfect smile with an upper denture that was way to big and uncomfortable. I could not eat, talk or sing. My great smile was not so great. Combined with the other dental issues i needed a dental office with patience and i feel comfortable going to. this is a must. My first visit was very comforting. Dr was able to do a major correction on the upper denture. I was able to eat better and smile. I left with the upper denture fitting better than it ever did. I was able to smile with confidence and assurance. I still have more work to go. Knowing I'm going to a Dental Office with a treatment plan and a better smile in the future is very exhilarating.

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, like resin or porcelain
  • 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 instead of dental implants 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 dental implants.

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.

How long do veneers last?

Your new porcelain veneers can last 10 years or more. You can also do your part to maintain them by brushing, flossing, and attending regular dental appointments at Perfect Smiles California.
