Offering High-Quality Porcelain Veneers in Arcadia, CA
When teeth have superficial damage or permanent discoloration, porcelain veneers can completely transform them for a stunningly beautiful smile. The office of Dr. Gary B. Jacobsen provides porcelain veneers for patients in Arcadia, East Pasadena, Monrovia, and all surrounding communities.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
These thin pieces of porcelain are custom made from an impression of your teeth to conceal mild flaws that may make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Damaged teeth can be renewed in just two visits to our dental office.
What Types of Imperfections do Porcelain Veneers treat?
Over time, teeth can sustain a variety of damage. Teeth-grinding, injury, illness, and some medications can negatively affect teeth. These conditions commonly lead to the following dental flaws:
- Chipped or Cracked Teeth
- Undersized or Misshapen Teeth
- Mildly Misaligned Teeth
- Permanently Discolored Teeth
Once Dr. Jacobsen receives your custom veneers from our trusted lab, they are securely bonded to the fronts of your teeth to conceal these imperfections and provide a stunning new smile.
Combining Porcelain Veneers and Teeth Whitening
If you have a combination of external stains on some teeth and structural damage on others, porcelain veneers can be used to treat the latter after the rest of your smile has been brightened. Teeth whitening must be completed previous to the shading of your veneers to achieve a uniformly brighter and restored smile as porcelain cannot be whitened.
Planning for Veneers
Since most insurance carriers don’t cover the cost of veneers, speaking to our dentist can help you formulate a plan that makes receiving veneers affordable. Keeping your teeth healthy is the first priority, as any cosmetic dental enhancement can only be performed when oral health is in good condition.
Many of our patients plan for porcelain veneers when planning for another event such as a wedding, graduation from college, or family reunion. Having an appealing smile at any of these or similar events can help, you make a great impression.
At the dental office of Dr. Jacobsen, we understands the power of a confident smile. He finds great reward in helping his patients increase their self-esteem as well as every aspect of their oral health.
