If you're unhappy with the way your teeth look because of permanent stains, uneven size, or noticeable chips, it can be difficult to smile or laugh with confidence.
At Andrew G. Mortensen, DDS, Inc., we use custom-crafted veneers to cover cosmetic imperfections on the front surface of your teeth, revealing a brighter, more even smile.
Want to find out why veneers are such a popular option among our Fountain Valley, CA, patients?
A dental veneer is an ultra-thin, tooth-colored porcelain shell that is custom-made to fit snugly over the front surface of a tooth. Because veneers are made from medical-grade, translucent porcelain, light shines through to your natural teeth, resulting in an extremely lifelike appearance. Dr. Mortensen can adjust the color of the veneer to match surrounding teeth, and in most cases, it is difficult to tell the difference between a tooth that has a dental veneer and one that doesn't.
Porcelain veneers can be used to address a variety of dental problems that might otherwise require multiple treatments. Veneers can be used to cover cracked, chipped, or stained teeth. A veneer can also be used to change the shape or width of your teeth to fill in small gaps or correct slight misalignments.
Customized to Your Needs
Dr. Mortensen offers many types of veneers, including minimal prep and no-prep veneers. Dr. Mortensen can place one veneer to improve the appearance of a single tooth, or he can place veneers on all of the front teeth for a complete smile makeover. During an evaluation at Dr. Mortensen's Fountain Valley practice, he will discuss porcelain veneers in greater detail and help you decide if they are the right dental solution for your teeth.
If you are hesitant to smile because you are embarrassed about the appearance of your teeth, we recommend that you consider porcelain veneers. Veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment because they can mask a variety of dental imperfections, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Permanent discolorations such as tetracycline stains
- Slight misalignments
- Misshapen teeth
Because porcelain veneers can address a variety of dental concerns at once, they are a popular option for patients who want to fully rejuvenate their smile with our Fountain Valley, CA, dentist.
Traditional dental veneers are extremely thin, but they require a small amount of enamel to be removed from the tooth.
Minimal prep options require very minimal modification to the teeth before placement.
No-prep dental veneers do not require any modification to the teeth before placement. They are a great option for patients who do not need their teeth resized or reshaped.
Although many dentists offer porcelain veneers at their practice, not all dentists have the level of training and expertise that Dr. Mortensen does. He has received cosmetic dentistry training at the world-famous Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies and is an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
His relationships with patients and exceptional results have earned him various distinctions, including:
- Best Dentist by The Orange County Register's "The Best of Orange County"
- Patients' Choice Winner by Opencare
When designing your cosmetic treatment, he will take into account your facial features and surrounding teeth to create great-looking results.
Placing porcelain veneers typically takes two appointments.
