Veneers Are Extremely Versatile Covering & Concealing a Wide Range of Conditions

Because they can cover multiple cosmetic concerns at once, veneers are a highly versatile form of cosmetic dentistry. They are also an efficient treatment option. In most cases, our dentist can design, craft, and place porcelain veneers in just two appointments. Because dental veneers offer a short treatment timeline, they are a very popular choice among patients who need to dramatically transform their smile in a short amount of time. If you are attending an important event in the coming months and are already dreading having to smile or take photographs, porcelain veneers may be right for you

Patients often come to our Fountain Valley, CA, practice with dental imperfections such as: 

Chipped Teeth

Permanent Tooth Discoloration

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.

"They Have the Best and Most Advanced Tools" 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

Wondering what to expect during the treatment?

Typical Treatment Timeline 

Placing porcelain veneers typically takes two appointments at our Fountain Valley, CA, practice. Here is what you can expect during these visits:

Consultation 

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.

Preparation

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 align perfectly with the rest of your teeth.

Impressions

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

Temporaries

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

Placement

During a second appointment at our Fountain Valley practice, the dentist will check the fit, feel, and look of the final porcelain veneer before permanently bonding it to the tooth's surface.
We work with a trusted dental lab to create porcelain veneers that blend in seamlessly with your other teeth.

How do I care for my veneers?

Maintaining Your Smile
After Treatment

Practice Good Oral Hygiene

It is important to take good care of your oral health by brushing twice daily and flossing once per day. Use a non-abrasive toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles to keep the surface of your veneer smooth and well-protected. 

Avoid Excessive Pressure

Porcelain veneers are prone to wear just like your natural teeth. To prevent damaging or dislodging the veneer from your tooth, do not open packages with your mouth, grind your teeth, or eat extremely hard and sticky foods. 

Prevent Discoloration

While your porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, your natural teeth are not. Dark-colored foods, drinks, and tobacco products may cause stains and disrupt the color of your smile. To keep your tooth enamel a bright shade of white, refrain from consuming anything that might stain your teeth.

Attend Dental Check-Ups 

Make sure to visit the dentist's office every six months for a check-up and professional dental cleaning. During your visits to our Fountain Valley office, Dr. Mortensen will be able to check the health of your teeth and the condition of your veneer. 

Are there any alternatives to dental veneers?

Other Options for Restoration & Enhancement

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 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. 

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 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.
