High-quality Porcelain Veneers for Our Bay Area Patients

When you look in the mirror, you want to love the face that looks back at you, including your smile. However, if you have discolored, cracked, or slightly misaligned teeth, you may not be happy with the smile in your reflection.

To combat this issue, Dr. Scott Pope offers porcelain veneers to patients in Walnut Creek and the East Bay Area. View our stunning results in the Smile Gallery.

Porcelain Veneers Explained

Dental veneers can be made from resin composite materials or dental porcelain.  Although slightly more expensive than composite dental veneers, porcelain veneers are often preferred for their translucent quality and ability to reflect light in a similar way to your natural teeth.

Porcelain veneers are small, thin pieces of dental porcelain that are custom-fitted and shaded for your tooth.  Utilizing a concept similar to fake fingernails, the porcelain sheaths are shaped and smoothed to create a natural-looking tooth cover for your tooth.

Placement Process

Porcelain veneers fit snugly on the front of teeth, requiring only minimal preparation and little if any tooth reduction.  They can be placed in as little as two visits!

During your first visit to our Walnut Creek dental office, Dr. Pope will take a mold of your teeth to determine the exact shape of the veneers.  After seven to ten days, you will return to Pope Dental to have your custom-created porcelain applied to your teeth.

After being bonded to your teeth using dental cement, your dental veneers will look, feel, and function just like your own teeth, creating a beautiful, natural-looking smile.

Problems Fixed by Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can produce beautiful, long-lasting results that correct for various dental problems, including:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Slight misalignment of front teeth
  • Stains and discolorations

Although some of the above dental problems can be corrected by other cosmetic dentistry treatments, including teeth whitening, dental bonding, and orthodontic treatment, the natural-looking results and the speed of treatment make porcelain veneers a preferred treatment for many patients at our San Francisco Bay Area dental practice. Schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Pope to find out if porcelain veneers are the right option for you.

A Good Dental Veneer Candidate

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth and you enjoy good dental health, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

However, if you grind or clench your teeth – especially to the point that it causes a TMJ disorder – you may not be a good candidate, since the additional stress from the clenching could cause the porcelain veneers to crack or break.

Also, if your teeth are excessively misaligned or decayed, porcelain veneers may not be the best option for you. After a comprehensive dental exam, Dr. Pope will be able to explain the pros and cons of dental veneers based on your specific needs.

Schedule a Porcelain Veneers Consultation in Walnut Creek

The best way to determine whether you’re a good candidate for porcelain veneers is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pope at our San Francisco Bay Area office. During this consultation, Dr. Pope will evaluate your dental health and assess your goals for the procedure at our Walnut Creek office.
