Porcelain Veneers

Santa Cruz Dentist Porcelain Veneers 

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that your Santa Cruz Dentist Dr. Heit will bond to the front of your teeth for beautiful results. It is no surprise that this procedure is popular in Santa Cruz, considering that the types of patients seeking porcelain veneers are those looking for a bright, sparkling smile. Whether with friend, family or at work, how comfortable you feel smiling can influence your mood.

Porcelain veneers are made of an extremely durable, translucent material with texture similar to tooth enamel. They are generally not susceptible to decay and should resist heavy staining, so even as time passes, your new smile should remain intact. You can help maintain your beautiful new smile by brushing thoroughly and flossing daily. Porcelain veneers are very thin; therefore, minimal grinding of the original tooth is needed as compared to getting crown or caps. It should be noted, however, that porcelain veneers are usually irreversible once they are placed on the teeth. This is because a small amount of enamel must be removed from your teeth in order to accommodate the veneers’ shell.

If you have severely discolored teeth that don’t respond to tooth whitening methods, veneers can brighten your teeth. They can also correct a jagged or misshapen tooth. If you’ve suffered injury to your mouth you may have tiny cracks on the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers are very effective at covering cracks and chips in the enamel. Porcelain is a material very similar to the color, look and feel of natural tooth enamel. It is a very tough material as well which makes it a good choice to simulate the look of your teeth.


Veneers generally requires at least three visits – an exam appointment, a separate time for preparing the teeth and taking an impression, and the bonding of your new veneers after the lab has made them specifically for you. There may be an additional treatment planning or try-in appointment depending on your specific needs. People will only see your beautiful smile. Schedule an appointment to learn more about how porcelain veneers can improve your look. In as little as three visits to Dr. Heit’s cosmetic dentistry office, you can have a perfect smile worthy of the big screen.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.
