Don’t let flaws in your smile damage your self-esteem. Porcelain veneers can erase imperfections and give you a bold, amazing smile. Made from thin shells of fine porcelain, veneers will mask chips, cracks, and stains on your front teeth, as well as gaps and misalignments. Because porcelain veneers have a translucency that mimics that of your natural teeth, friends and family will notice your beautiful smile and not your dental work.
A Cosmetic Dentist for a Reconstructed Smile
Let Dr. Salami upgrade your smile to one you prefer. The process begins by taking impressions of your teeth so the ceramists can mold a replica model.
Dr. Salami will fit your teeth with temporary veneers so that you can begin to get accustomed to your new upgraded appearance. The data we gather is sent to a premium dentistry lab where a master ceramist will handcraft your new veneers. When the veneers return from the dental lab, your final placement will commence, giving you the smile transformation you desire.

Benefits of porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers can correct a number of cosmetic dental issues and restore your bright, beautiful smile without the need for serious dental surgery or expensive cosmetic treatments. A transformed smile is just one of several benefits of porcelain dental veneers. Other benefits include:
- Porcelain veneers can correct a range of cosmetic dental issues, including:
– Chipped teeth
– Gapped teeth
– Misshapen teeth
– Stained/discolored teeth
– Moderately misaligned teeth
- Porcelain veneers look and feel like natural teeth
- Porcelain veneers involve a less invasive procedure than crowns and implants
- Porcelain veneers do not irritate gums
- Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant
- Porcelain veneers can be color-matched to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth
Additionally, caring for porcelain veneers is as easy as caring for your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing and regular visits to the dentist will help keep your smile radiant and healthy-looking. But just like with natural teeth, it’s also important to avoid chewing on pens, ice, hard candy, and other things that can chip, crack, or otherwise damage your teeth or veneers.
Procedure for getting porcelain dental veneers
The procedure for getting porcelain veneers is fairly simple, though it will require two or three visits to our dental office in Rancho Bernardo. During the first visit, Dr. Salami performs a thorough examination of the teeth to determine whether veneers are the best option. If so, she will prepare teeth by removing a small amount of tooth enamel, slightly reshaping the surface in order to accommodate the veneers. She then makes impressions of the mouth and teeth, which are sent to a premium dentistry lab. At the lab, the master ceramicist builds a replica model and customizes a perfect-fitting veneer or set of veneers.
Once the veneers are ready, we will call you back into our North County dental office for a second visit. During this visit, the teeth are cleaned and polished, and then a strong adhesive is used to bond the veneers to your teeth. We use high-intensity lights to harden the adhesive, making final adjustments as necessary. The high-grade porcelain veneers will be color matched to the surrounding teeth, so they look and feel indistinguishable from your natural teeth. The second visit is always the most fun because you get to leave with a beautifully transformed smile.
In some cases, we’ll ask you back for a third visit so we can evaluate the placement of the veneers and ensure that your gums are responding appropriately.
How much do veneers cost in San Diego?
Like most dental procedures, the cost of dental veneers varies widely depending on the number of veneers needed, the materials used, the complexity of the treatment, the location of the dental practice, and other factors that can vary from person to person. In general, you can expect to pay between $800 and $2500 per tooth in San Diego. If you’re calling around to a number of different dental offices, be sure to ask what’s included in the cost.
Lower costs may not include the cost of X-rays, fabrication, or other steps in the procedure. Also, it’s important to note that dental veneers are considered cosmetic improvements rather than necessary dental procedures, so they are typically not covered by dental insurance.
However, if the veneers are needed to restore or strengthen a tooth’s structure, or if they are used to replace a damaged veneer, some insurance policies will cover at least a portion of the cost.
