Getting your porcelain veneers placed or replaced entails two simple visits with Dr. Briscoe in
his La Jolla
office. Initially, you will meet with him to discuss your aesthetic vision and the treatment options
available. In this meeting, you’ll identify your goals and Dr. Briscoe will help you choose the most
aesthetically appropriate solution.
Instead of merely showing you photos of how the veneers will look, Dr. Briscoe will take impressions of your
teeth so he can show you a three dimensional model of exactly how the procedure will change your smile. In an
effort to deliver among the best dental veneers San Diego and La Jolla have to offer, Dr. Briscoe ensures
that every detail is discussed and reviewed. His attention to nuance is what makes him the best dental
veneers dentist in San Diego.
Modern dental veneers require very little preparation of the existing teeth. In some cases there is no preparation necessary but most patients require a few millimeters of enamel to be gently removed to make room for the thin veneers. Incorrect preparation is the main cause of unnatural ‘chicklet teeth’ that are too thick to properly fit the gum line. Dr. Briscoe is known as an ultimate perfectionist; he is not satisfied unless the dental veneers are perfect and look entirely natural. This is why he has many out of town patients who opt to travel to La Jolla for their procedure.
During the following appointment, the veneers are placed. You will spend a week deciding if the veneers meet
your expectations. If you wish to make an adjustment, Dr. Briscoe will make the necessary changes until you’re
satisfied. The permanent veneers will then be bonded into place and the process is complete.
In only a matter of days, your teeth will be fully functional and beautiful. The porcelain is as strong and
durable as your natural teeth, and will enhance your elegance without detracting from your enjoyment of food.
Your smile will light up a room!
