Senior NPBCAAs we age, some of the brighter aspects of our appearance begin to fade. Our lips thin, our hair turns gray. And with this often too is a smile that has faded a bit.

Porcelain veneers can help to bring back that youthful smile, all while maintaining your current healthy teeth. Dentists would always prefer to keep natural teeth, whenever possible.

This procedure is easy, and before you know it, you’ll have a new set of teeth, looking as natural as ever.

Today, your Newport Beach, CA dentist discusses how veneers can bring a shine back to your smile!


Teeth endure a constant barrage of assaults on a daily basis. From the standard wear and tear of chewing food to accidents involving glasses.

Or maybe they’ve shrunk due to grinding or acid wear. Bruxism, or the grinding of the teeth, can flatten teeth over time. Not only that, but the action can adjust the way the teeth are situated.

For whatever reason, porcelain veneers allow a dentist to craft a beautiful new smile right on top of your old one!

With porcelain veneers, a skilled ceramicist crafts new teeth that act as caps over your natural teeth. This allows for shaping to create a new, perfectly aligned smile instantly, rather than the wait of other methods.

How Do I Know If It’s A Fit?

Your first step would be to schedule an appointment with a dentist. Once you two have discussed the range of options, and have decided that porcelain veneers are the right solution for your mouth, it’s time to plan.

You have many options as to how you would like your new smile to look, but our chief concern is always to craft a smile that is healthy and strong. After that, it should look naturally beautiful.

Veneers are designed to last for many years if handled appropriately. The porcelain is as strong as your natural enamel, and the adhesive is just as strong if not stronger.

How Can I Learn More?

Porcelain veneers are a solution that works for many people, and you’re probably wondering if it would be right for you. The best thing to do would be to schedule an appointment with a skilled oral health professional, and let them review the range of options that are available to you.
