Porcelain Veneers That Are Affordable in Santa Clarita

Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. At New Age Dental Group in Santa Clarita, we understand the veneer procedure can be direct or indirect. The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

How Does it Work?

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory.

At the first appointment, the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks, the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed, and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory-fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic and provide a pleasing aesthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Crowns are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
