Dr. Derek M. Lichter offers dental veneers in Chula Vista, California, to give you the option of changing the size, length, shape, and color of your teeth for a more inviting, attractive smile.

Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells that are customized to fit perfectly on your teeth. Each veneer is custom made to cover the front surface of your tooth, disguise its imperfections, and improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers can also fix:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Teeth that are misaligned
  • Teeth that are irregularly shaped
  • Uneven teeth
  • Teeth with gaps between them

If you decide to utilize a dental veneer, we ask that you expect two visits to our office. During your first visit, your dentist will examine your teeth, diagnose the problems you have, and create a treatment plan that will end in your new-and-improved smile. Then, he will numb your tooth with a local anesthetic and will shave its surfaces to allow room for the veneer. You dentist will then make impressions of your tooth and will send them to a dental lab, where your veneer will be created. During your next visit, your dentist will check and adjust the veneer to make it fit perfectly with your bite and smile. When he finds the proper placement, the veneer will be permanently cemented to the tooth. For more information and to set up your consultation, we invite you to contact our office today.
