What are dental veneers?

Dr. Paul E. Dougherty and Dr. Scott O. Szotko can create a beautiful smile with the use of dental veneers. The veneer is a thin, custom-made shell that is bonded to the front of the teeth, improving the appearance of the teeth.

For our patients who have felt discouraged by the appearance of their teeth, dental veneers are a life-changing treatment. This treatment can eliminate cosmetic imperfections in your teeth, creating a brilliant smile.

Don’t fall behind in your life while hiding your teeth. Dental veneers in La Jolla, California, are a great treatment because they allow you to quickly improve the aesthetics of your teeth. If you want to create the smile you have always wanted, schedule an appointment at 858-454-2656.


What should you expect?

Dental veneers can be applied quickly and effectively to the teeth. During your consultation, Dr. Paul E. Dougherty and Dr. Scott O. Szotko can discuss your personal goals and what you would like to accomplish. Additionally, we can discuss other methods that could improve your smile.

Our Dentists will take impressions of your teeth, which will allow us to create a 3D model of the teeth and how they will look with dental veneers. Because we are so meticulous in our work, you will be able to see exactly how your smile will look.

During the follow-up appointment, our Dentists will place temporary veneers on the teeth, which will allow you to spend a week with the veneers, allowing you to see if you are happy with the look of your smile. If the temporary veneer doesn’t live up to your expectations, we will make changes to the veneer until you are completely satisfied. Once you feel confident in the treatment, we will bond the permanent veneers to your teeth, completing the process.
