Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?

If dull, crooked, or misshapen teeth are compromising the beauty of your smile, you may be weighing your cosmetic dentistry options. Many people hesitate at the thought of applying porcelain veneers, because they are afraid their smile will look noticeably artificial or unnatural. This is far from the case. When porcelain veneers are designed and placed by an experienced Orange County cosmetic dentist like Dr. Huefner, they look indistinguishable from natural teeth, masking your smile flaws so well that they look like a brand new set of teeth.

Porcelain veneers are capable of correcting several cosmetic dental problems at once, including:

  • Permanently stained teeth (that do not respond to teeth whitening) 
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Worn-down teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

Besides effectively hiding these problems, porcelain veneers are also stain-resistant. Their non-porous surface prevents stains from penetrating the veneer, making discoloration easy to polish away if it does occur. Veneers also provide you with a straight, seamless smile line that is balanced to fit your unique facial profile. When crafting your veneers, Dr. Huefner will take many different factors into account, such as tooth shape, tooth shade or color, and translucency, making sure your veneers perfectly match your surrounding teeth.

Best of all, veneers do not require any special care. As long as you brush and floss them with the same diligence as you do your natural teeth, you can enjoy your beautiful new smile for many years to come.

Rachel Miss Teen-California-International and her Porcelain Veneers

After Dr. Huefner did a smile makeover for Rachel with eight porcelain veneers she went on to win the Miss Teen-California-International pageant.

Several years ago Rachel, one of our patients from Rancho Santa Margarita, was competing in beauty pageants.  An absolutely stunning young lady, Rachel didn’t like the appearance of her teeth.  She wanted them whiter and she felt that her cuspids (eye teeth) were too pointed.  In our smile analysis we discovered some other issues that Rachel didn’t realize.  When Rachel smiled her upper lip covered over more of her teeth than normal.  Also, her lateral incisors were too short and round.  In order to give her a stunning smile that would help Rachel in her competition Dr. Huefner recommended placing eight porcelain veneers.  This would enable him to not only give her the beautiful white teeth that she wanted on stage, but also improve the shape and length of her teeth to give Rachel the best smile possible.
