Orthodontic procedures, like Invisalign and braces, address misalignment and crooked teeth. Teeth whitening procedures address stained or discolored teeth. Dental fillings and inlays/onlays address superficial cracks and fractures on the teeth. As such, most dental procedures address specific aspects of your oral health and anatomy, whether it’s stains, cracks, or alignment. Dental veneers in Bakersfield are ideal for patients who want to conceal all their dental problems, including stains, cracks, and misalignment, without undergoing multiple long-term procedures.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, wafer-like, chips of porcelain bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They’re individually customized according to your unique dental anatomy to elevate your smile. Porcelain veneers are superior to all other materials because porcelain’s texture, translucence, and light reflection capabilities resemble enamel, making them resemble actual teeth. Furthermore, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, so you can enjoy a brighter smile for a longer period.

Porcelain Veneers Procedure Details
During your initial consultation at Valley Grace Dental, our team of dental experts will examine your teeth, evaluate your dental health, review your dental history, and discuss your cosmetic concerns. If you have underlying dental diseases, we recommend seeking the necessary medical treatments before getting the veneers. If you’re cleared for dental veneers, we take accurate measurements and impressions of your teeth. If you need veneers for only specific teeth, we make the color and shade resemble your surrounding teeth. However, if you want veneers for all your teeth, we choose the ideal shade to produce a stunning smile.
After taking accurate teeth impressions, we design the ideal porcelain veneers to address your specific concerns. Once the dental veneers are prepared, our dentists prepare your teeth by etching off or contouring some of the front surfaces of your teeth. Finally, the porcelain veneers are bonded over your teeth and adjusted to give you a stunning smile. Porcelain veneers are just as strong as natural teeth and capable of withstanding stains, discoloration, cracks, bite force, etc. As such, in some ways, porcelain veneers are even better than natural teeth. However, you’ll need to maintain optimal oral hygiene to increase your porcelain veneers’ longevity. With proper care, porcelain veneers can last 10 to 20 years.
