The difference is often porcelain veneers. Irvine area patients can get the same star treatment, with healthy, safe materials and techniques, at David Son DDS.

Fast smile fixes

Veneers are thin shells of strong, lustrous material. They fit over the front surfaces of teeth to correct these appearance problems:
  • Enamel flaws – Pits, bumps, chips, and cracks.
  • Discoloration – Deep, internal stains that don’t respond to professional whitening.
  • Minor misalignment – Gaps, crooked teeth, and crowding.
  • Unusual shape – Teeth that are too small.
  • Worn down teeth.

The procedure

Dr. Son examines your mouth and listens carefully to your appearance concerns. If veneers are your best option, generally just two appointments (usually with no anesthetic!) in the span of about two weeks are needed to create your show-stopping smile.

Dr. Son prepares teeth by removing a minute amount of enamel. This allows veneers to fit snugly at the gum line and look natural. He provides impressions, detailed measurements, and shading information to a professional dental laboratory. The lab fabricates veneers from biocompatible non-metal material, with the luster of organic tooth enamel.

At the second appointment, teeth are treated with an etching solution to improve adhesion. Veneers are cemented into place with a special light to activate and harden the bonding agent. Then veneers are polished to gleaming perfection. You receive care instructions to keep teeth and gums healthy, and help your new veneers last many years.
