If you are looking to create a natural, gorgeous, uniform smile that looks like you were born with it, dental veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Or if you are looking to create the perfect Hollywood celebrity smile, veneers may also be the perfect solution for you. 

No matter which route you go when it comes to improving the appearance of your teeth, we can help accomplish your goals with dental veneers. Dental veneers are thin covers that we place over the front of your natural teeth in order to create a beautiful smile. We leave most of your natural tooth structure in place, just polishing off a thin layer of enamel to make room for your porcelain and avoid a bulky appearance. 

Before we place your veneers, Dr. Ryan Kay can create a wax-up so that you can see first hand what your new smile will look like. When you have your consultation with Dr. Kay, you can discuss the shade as well as the outcome you hope to achieve and even share some smiles you really like.

We will always make sure that your new smile is as functional as it is beautiful.

Day-to-day use subjects your teeth to constant force and wear, especially if you have a bruxism (teethporcelain veneers encinitas ca grinding) habit. When teeth crack or chip, they look aged and can feel quite sensitive. Covering them with a reliable restoration will solve esthetic and functional issues.

When front teeth sustain damage, we may recommend dental veneers in our Encinitas, CA dental office to restore the look and function of the bite.

Dental veneers, made of brilliant, tooth-colored porcelain, look like natural teeth and fit over the existing tooth structure. A full evaluation and consultation will give you an opportunity to share the ideas you have about your ideal smile with Dr. Ryan Kay.

Dr. Kay will listen carefully to your goals. He will then design veneers for you using models of your teeth to ensure that your teeth bite together correctly.

Some patients prefer a more natural look, while others want an ultra-white appearance to their new smile. Veneers can give you your dream smile with a single treatment option that truly transforms your teeth and makes you look years younger.
