Benefit from the best, stunning, high-performance porcelain veneers at the holistic dentist’s office!

Brighton Dental distinguishes itself from other practices in and around San Diego, California, with a holistic or biological approach to dentistry. Led by Dr. Paige Woods, our team carefully vets all materials, products, technologies, and services to ensure their effectiveness and safety. There is considerable peace of mind that all of our treatments support the long-term health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. And in supporting sustained oral health, we furthermore promote systemic health, overall well-being, and good quality of life. We also appreciate the value and power of cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular ways to bring out the natural beauty of your one-of-a-kind smile – for a good reason. 

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin handcrafted porcelain shields worn on the front of the tooth which improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained or worn. Veneers are thin as contact lenses, and are an aesthetically pleasing option of closing gaps, lengthening teeth, and providing symmetry to make your smile more natural. Veneers are intended to last for many years without changing color. They are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry. Ask your dentist if veneers may be right for you.

Veneers – beautiful and strong 

Carefully prepared and placed by Dr. Woods, veneers are designed to cover up visible cosmetic imperfections. In some cases, they may also be applied to help to protect exposed roots. When gums pull away from the teeth, they expose more of the tooth. These teeth are then vulnerable to further damage. By securing veneers to the vulnerable teeth, the weakened tooth structure is strengthened, and future damage may be avoided. Generally, though, veneers are used to make the following aesthetic concerns disappear (by disguising them!):

  • Gaps between teeth and other spacing issues 
  • Unevenly-sized teeth 
  • Poorly-shaped teeth 
  • Teeth with very severe stains or intrinsic discoloration that does not respond well to whitening
  • Chips, small fractures, and other signs of wear and tear

Using high-performance, non-toxic, and otherwise quality materials plays a significant role in our status as an authentic holistic dentistry provider. We only use safe and metal-free materials such as ceramics (like porcelain) and composite resin. We are also exacting in preparing and designing treatment. So, the results from your veneers fit your unique smile and facial features. By using lesser materials and in less skilled hands, there is a risk that veneers will protrude or look too “plastic” or fake. Dr. Woods works closely with patients to support their satisfaction with veneers. All of the characteristics of the veneer should blend in perfectly with the rest of your tooth, neighboring natural teeth, and with features such as your skin tone.  

Dental porcelain may be a preferred material because it resists stains well and does a great job of mimicking the appearance and strength of natural tooth enamel. Today’s veneers are also super-thin, which helps to support the most natural appearance and feel in the mouth. Furthermore, by minimizing the amount of enamel removed to accommodate the thickness of the veneer, we ensure a more comfortable and sensitivity-free experience! Even after your permanent veneers have been bonded securely to the teeth, Brighton Dental will continue to work with you to keep your improved teeth looking great and healthy.
