Porcelain Veneers Cosmetic Dentistry in Poway

Porcelain Veneers: The Instant Smile Makeover

Porcelain veneers are often called an "instant smile makeover" — and for good reason. In as few as two or three appointments, we can transform a smile with stained and/or crooked teeth and turn it into the kind of smile you once thought impossible.

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for restoring your smile. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They can be used to correct a number of dental concerns including stained or discolored teeth, chipped or broken teeth, misshapen teeth, and gaps between your teeth.

If you are considering porcelain veneers to restore your smile, the first step is to schedule a consultation with our practice! During your consultation, Dr. Chris McKinney will examine your teeth and discuss your goals for treatment and see if veneers are right for you.

Teeth Whitening -  Cosmetic Dentistry in Poway

Teeth Whitening

It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much you show when you talk and smile. In only a day or two your custom bleach splints will be ready for you to pick up.

Our dentist in Poway provides you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent lightens the color of your teeth in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way.

Dental Bonding - Cosmetic Dentistry in Poway

Dental Bonding: The Fast, Affordable Way to Correct Cosmetic Issues

Dental bonding uses a composite resin material to correct the appearance of chipped, misshapen teeth, and other cosmetic conditions. Dental bonding is faster and less expensive than porcelain veneers, but it does come with some trade-offs.

With dental bonding, the material can be tinted to match the surrounding teeth. While bonding can give a beautiful, esthetic result, it does not usually look as natural as porcelain and is more limiting. Most composite veneers do not last as long as porcelain ones. The material itself is more porous than porcelain and can, therefore, stain over time.
