Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of dental porcelain custom made to cover the front surface of teeth, concealing imperfections and transforming smiles. They are a popular cosmetic dental treatment that addresses various concerns, including discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, misalignment, and unevenly shaped teeth.  

Porcelain veneers are a minimally invasive approach to smile enhancement, preserving natural tooth structure while delivering dramatic aesthetic improvements. Their importance lies in their ability to provide patients with a natural-looking, durable solution for achieving a radiant smile and renewed confidence, ultimately enhancing their appearance and self-esteem.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers 

Natural Appearance 

One of the most significant benefits of porcelain veneers is their ability to mimic natural tooth enamel's appearance closely. Dental porcelain has translucency and luster similar to that of natural teeth, ensuring that veneers blend seamlessly with the surrounding dentition. This natural appearance allows individuals to achieve a flawless smile without sacrificing authenticity, enabling them to smile confidently.  


Porcelain veneers are a versatile solution for various cosmetic concerns, including discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, misalignment, and unevenly shaped teeth. Whether used to whiten stained teeth, repair chipped enamel, close gaps between teeth, or improve overall symmetry and aesthetics, veneers can achieve comprehensive smile transformations with precision and consistency.

Minimally Invasive 

The application process for porcelain veneers in Lemoore, CA, is minimally invasive compared to other cosmetic dental treatments. Unlike crowns or dental implants that require extensive tooth preparation and alterations, veneers preserve most of the natural tooth structure. Minimal enamel removal is necessary to accommodate the thin veneers, making it a conservative approach that maintains tooth integrity while achieving significant aesthetic improvements.  


Each porcelain veneer is custom made to match the size, shape, and color of the patient's natural teeth, ensuring a personalized and harmonious result that complements their facial features and smile aesthetics. The customization process involves carefully considering factors such as tooth shade, translucency, and surface texture, allowing for precise control over the outcome. This attention to detail ensures that veneers blend seamlessly with the natural dentition, creating a harmonious and lifelike smile. 

The Process for Porcelain Veneers 

Consultation and Treatment Planning 

The process typically begins with an initial consultation with the cosmetic dentist in Lemoore, CA, during which the patient's goals and expectations for treatment are discussed. The dentist will comprehensively examine the patient's oral health and assess their suitability for porcelain veneers. This may involve taking impressions or digital scans of the teeth and discussing the veneers' desired size, shape, and color. This evaluation creates a personalized treatment plan to address the patient's specific concerns and achieve their aesthetic goals. 

Tooth Preparation 

Before the veneers can be applied, a small amount of enamel may need to be gently removed from the teeth's front surface to accommodate the veneers' thickness. This step is essential to ensure a seamless fit and natural appearance once the veneers are placed. The amount of enamel removed is minimal and varies depending on the individual's dental anatomy and the desired treatment outcome. Sometimes, little to no tooth preparation may be necessary, particularly with minimal-prep or "no-prep" veneer options. 

Veneer Placement and Bonding 

Once the teeth are prepared, impressions or digital scans are taken and sent to a dental laboratory, where skilled technicians fabricate the custom veneers to the dentist's specifications. In the interim, temporary veneers may be placed to protect the prepared teeth and maintain aesthetics. Once the final veneers are ready, they are carefully bonded to the teeth using a strong dental adhesive. The dentist will ensure proper fit, alignment, and aesthetics before permanently securing the veneers. Any final adjustments are made as needed, and the veneers are polished to shine naturally. 

Porcelain Veneers Care 

  • Maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice daily with nonabrasive fluoride toothpaste and flossing between the teeth and around the veneers daily. 
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and avoid abrasive toothpaste or whitening products that can scratch or damage the veneers' surface. 
  • Avoid biting or chewing on hard objects such as ice, pens, or fingernails, as this can chip or fracture the veneers. 
  • Wear a protective mouthguard if participating in contact sports or activities that may put your teeth at risk of injury. 
  • Avoid foods and beverages that can stain or discolor natural teeth, such as coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco products, as these substances can also affect the appearance of veneers. 
  • Visit our dentist at Dr. Riemer Dental Group regularly for professional cleanings and checkups to ensure your veneers' and underlying teeth's health and integrity. 
  • Inform your dentist if you experience any issues with your veneers, such as chips, cracks, or loosening, so they can be addressed promptly to prevent further damage.
