Different Types for Different Needs WHICH DENTAL VENEERS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU?
Traditional dental veneers are extremely thin shells made from tooth-colored porcelain. In order to place traditional veneers that won't look bulky, we need to remove a very small amount of enamel from the tooth. For this reason, patients who choose this option must be ready for a lifetime commitment.
Minimal prep options require very slight modifications to the teeth before placement but can create equally long-lasting and beautiful results compared to traditional veneers. Since they require less preparation, they are ideal for patients who want a minimally invasive or reversible solution to their cosmetic concerns.
No-prep dental veneers do not require any modification to the teeth before placement. They are a great option for patients with stains or chips who do not need their teeth resized or reshaped. If your teeth are crowded or crooked, re-structuring the tooth with traditional treatment will yield a better final result.
First-Rate Technology Precise Planning with Our Cone Beam Scanner
Our Fountain Valley practice is equipped with the latest dental technologies including a 3-D cone beam scanner. Unlike a traditional 2-D x-ray machine, the cone beam emits less radiation and incorporates a wider field of vision so it can safely generate precise images for patients.
During your exam, one of our team members will ask you to stand in the scanner. The scanner then rotates 360 degrees around you, capturing hundreds of distinct views that are compiled into interactive three-dimensional images in just seconds.
These images allow Dr. Mortensen to assess your oral health and ensure that you are ready to begin cosmetic treatment. If we detect any oral health concerns during your exam, we can treat these in our office.

Am I a Good Candidate For Porcelain Veneers?
Have Good Oral Health
You should be in good oral health before the placement of your veneers. Oral health issues, like gum disease, will need to be corrected before veneer treatment to ensure the longevity of your dental restorations.
Have Sufficient Enamel
Our dentist will remove a small amount of enamel before traditional veneer placement to ensure a proper fit. Patients with thin or worn-down enamel may not be good candidates for this cosmetic treatment.
Are Free of Teeth Grinding
While the porcelain used to make veneers is incredibly durable, it is not indestructible. Patients who suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding) will need to wear an oral appliance to protect their veneers from chipping or breaking.
Have Only Minor Misalignment
Veneers are effective at hiding minor misalignment issues. However, those with severely misaligned teeth or a severely misaligned bite will need to have this corrected with braces or Invisalign® before veneers can be placed.
Have Realistic Expectations
Traditional porcelain veneers require the removal of enamel, which creates a permanent change to the structure of your teeth. Patients who do not want to commit to a permanent change should consider other options.
Other Options for Restoration & Enhancement If You Are Not a Good Candidate for Veneers
While a veneer can cover small cracks and chips, it cannot strengthen or restore a badly damaged tooth. Patients with severely cracked, decayed, or damaged teeth may be better candidates for dental crowns. A dental crown covers the entire tooth from the gum line to the cusp, reinforcing the tooth and concealing cosmetic concerns all at once. Just like dental veneers, crowns are custom-made to complement your smile and look incredibly natural.
Veneers are an exceptional choice for patients who are struggling with permanent tooth stains or intrinsic discoloration. However, teeth whitening may be a sufficient way to remove surface stains and brighten your smile. We offer both at-home and in-office options that whiten your teeth by several shades in fast, comfortable treatments. Teeth whitening is more affordable than veneers, but does not offer the same permanent outcomes and must be touched-up regularly.
