Different Types for Different Needs Which Dental Veneers Are Right for You?

Depending on your cosmetic goals, Dr. Mortensen will recommend the type of dental veneer he thinks will provide the best results. Contact our Huntington Beach, CA, office so we can determine the type of veneer best suited to 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 small amount of enamel from the tooth. For this reason, patients who choose this option must be ready for a lifetime commitment.

Veneer compared to teeth

Minimal Prep

Minimal prep veneers 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.

Worried About Your Procedure? We'll Keep You Relaxed

Certain types of veneers require the removal of a small amount of enamel, and this can make patients feel nervous about the procedure. Our Huntington Beach office can keep you comfortable with sedation dentistry.

Our dentist can prescribe oral conscious sedation, a pill you take before your procedure to help you relax throughout your appointment. We prefer this sedation method because it’s more potent than nitrous oxide and doesn't require needles like IV sedation. Your dose can also be tailored to your needs, making it a safe option for virtually any adult patient.

Because it takes a few hours for the medication to wear off, you’ll have to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment.

First-Rate Technology Precise Planning With Our Cone Beam Scanner

Our Huntington Beach practice is equipped with the latest dental technologies including a 3D cone beam scanner. Unlike a traditional 2D 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.

Patients Love Our Technology

I love how much care and passion is given by Andrew Mortensen and his staff. If you're looking for a dentist, look no further." Meliza Barriga

Am I a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

Most people who are unhappy with their teeth and smile are good candidates for porcelain veneers. Dr. Mortensen will evaluate your candidacy at your initial consultation to discuss your best treatment option and whether veneers are right for you. Good candidates for dental veneers:

Have Good Oral Health

You should be in good oral health before we place 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.

Don't Grind Their Teeth

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.

Are Committed to the Procedure

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.

Typical Treatment Timeline 

Placing porcelain veneers typically takes two appointments at our Huntington Beach, CA, practice. Here is what you can expect during these visits:
Dr. Mortensen has been practicing in the field of dentistry since 1979. He is passionate about creating beautiful, healthy smiles his patients are proud to show off.
Dr. Mortensen has been practicing in the field of dentistry since 1979. He is passionate about creating beautiful, healthy smiles his patients are proud to show off.


During your first visit, Dr. Mortensen will examine your teeth to make sure they are healthy enough to support veneers. We will discuss your options and select the type of veneer that best suits your needs and goals.


If you opt for traditional porcelain veneers, we begin by preparing the teeth for treatment. Dr. Mortensen will remove about half a millimeter of tooth enamel so that the veneer will lie flush with the rest of your teeth and not appear bulky.


Once your teeth are prepared, Dr. Mortensen will take impressions of your smile. These are sent to a trusted dental lab, where a skilled ceramic technician will craft your veneers.


Before you leave, Dr. Mortensen will place temporary veneers to protect your teeth until the permanent restorations are ready.


During a second appointment at our Huntington Beach office, your dentist will check the fit, feel, and look of the final porcelain veneers before permanently bonding them to the surface of each treated tooth.

Porcelain Veneers Are Indistinguishable  From Your Natural Teeth

We work with a trusted dental lab to create porcelain veneers that blend in seamlessly with your other teeth.

We Take the Time to Customize Your Results

Dr. Mortensen's patients are thrilled with their new veneers, and he has received hundreds of 5-star reviews and heartfelt testimonials from his patients.

Veneers are not a one-size-fits-all treatment. When designing your treatment, we will take into account your bone structure, tooth color, and dental arches to craft natural-looking restorations that complement your appearance.

With over 40 years of cosmetic dentistry experience, Dr. Mortensen can handle even the most severe cases of dental imperfections. Our team is passionate about creating a beautiful smile you will be proud to show off.

Another Real Patient Case Using Porcelain Veneers

Before veneers
Before This patient felt self-conscious about the appearance of her worn, chipped, and cracked teeth, which had also become discolored.
After veneers
After Dr. Mortensen applied porcelain veneers to conceal her dental flaws and give her a natural-looking smile she feels confident showing off.

Including Veneers in a Smile Makeover

Veneers can transform the look of your teeth, but they can't resolve all cosmetic concerns. Dr. Mortensen in Huntington Beach can combine multiple cosmetic procedures into one streamlined care plan to target all of your concerns at once, saving you time and money.

Veneers can be used in conjunction with Invisalign, gum contouring, cosmetic crowns, teeth whitening, bonding, and more to effectively transform the appearance of your teeth and gums. The result is a beautiful smile free of dental flaws that you'll be excited to share.

Other Options for Restoration & Enhancement if You Are Not a Good Candidate for Veneers

Dental Crowns

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 gumline 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.

Teeth Whitening

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 whitening options that brighten your teeth by several shades in fast, comfortable treatments. Whitening is more affordable than veneers but does not offer the same permanent outcomes and must be touched up regularly.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a procedure in which tooth-colored composite resin is bonded to the tooth enamel to correct concerns like chips, cracks, discoloration, and misshapen teeth. Bonding can make your teeth whiter, brighter, and more symmetrical in a single appointment. Dental bonding doesn’t last as long as porcelain veneers, but it doesn't require any serious alterations to the tooth structure and it’s a more affordable option that can give you comparable results.

Do veneers hurt?

The process of receiving veneers is virtually painless thanks to a local anesthetic and our gentle techniques, but it can be made even more comfortable with sedation dentistry. After your initial appointment in Huntington Beach, you may feel some discomfort for a few days, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Will people know I have veneers?

Only if you tell them. Dental porcelain is indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel, and Dr. Mortensen will craft your veneers to blend in with the best parts of your smile.
