Why Consider Porcelain Veneers?
Brushing and flossing are designed to keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. But it is difficult to prevent all the signs of aging in teeth. From teeth losing their natural color and shine, to the variations in ridges and shapes that can make people feel self-conscious, you may find that your smile is not bringing you the confidence that you want.
There are several general and cosmetic dentistry services we can use to makeover your smile and give it the appearance you desire. One of the most popular solutions is to use porcelain veneers.
Veneers are long lasting ceramic shells that are sealed to your teeth. They are designed in a bright but natural white and shaped to appear smooth and healthy. Because porcelain is resistant to stains, these veneers make it possible to maintain beautiful teeth for years, and often help patients feel proud of their smile once again.
Candidates for Veneers – Who Are Porcelain Veneers For?
Dental Veneers are a type of cosmetic dentistry that are very popular with those that are no longer as confident in their smile.
The best way to determine if veneers are the right choice for a smile makeover is to contact Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry and let Dr. Chen or Dr. Skelton review your teeth and determine if porcelain veneers make the most sense as a solution, or if there are other procedures that may be worthy of consideration.
Porcelain veneers are especially popular with those struggling with:
- Tooth Discoloration
- Worn Down Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
- Irregularly Shaped Teeth
- Gapped Teeth
Porcelain veneers look exactly like regular teeth, but are able to withstand stains and will not fade over time. They are also nearly as strong as teeth and the transition line is almost impossible to detect from the naked eye. People that you meet may have no idea that you have veneers. They will simply see you with your great smile.

FAQ About Porcelain Veneers
Q: Do Porcelain Veneers Look Fake?
A: Not at all. In fact, they are given just the right amount of color, translucency, and just the right amount of texture to look identical to natural teeth, but with a whiter and brighter appearance.
Q: There Are Dentists Near Me That Provide Veneers. Why Should I Travel to Folsom?
A: We have patients as far south as Ione and as far north as Colfax, with additional patients in areas like Sacramento, Elk Grove, Rocklin, Roseville, El Dorado Hills, Cameron Park, Rancho Murieta, and other cities and towns in the region. The reason is because not all dental care is the same, and our team has made it a mission to continue their education and offer the highest quality care that we can provide.
You see the dentist only twice per year on average, and only more often when you have more immediate dental needs (including cosmetic dentistry). It makes sense to see a dentist that will provide the best possible results with the latest in dental technology, no matter where they are located. We are confident that once you visit our office you will understand why so many patients have made Esthetic Reflections In Dentistry their dental home.
Q: Are There Other Types of Dental Veneers Besides Porcelain?
A: In terms of material, there are composite veneers, but porcelain veneers are so popular and realistic looking that there are few situations where one might want a different material. That said, there are different types of porcelain veneers, including stacked and pressed ceramic, lithium disilicate, and zirconia, as well as different brands which offer different shapes and appearances.
You and your Folsom dentist at Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry will determine which choice makes the most sense for your teeth and dental health.
Q: Are There Any Disadvantages to Dental Veneers?
A: Porcelain veneers have a 90% satisfaction rate on RealSelf and an even higher satisfaction rate when choosing the right dentist. That said, it is a decision that you should think about, as there are a few disadvantages.
- First, the procedure is permanent. A thin layer of Enamel is removed from the teeth before placing the veneers, and so you will always need to have veneers to protect your teeth. Some people do report sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks after veneers for a similar reason.
- Second, although porcelain can last for decades and often for the rest of your life, it is not unbreakable. Should your veneer break, you will need another to replace it.
- Finally, it is not usually a good idea to only place veneers on two or three teeth. Usually, at least 4 and often 8 are recommended, and almost always an even number. That is because porcelain may not match your worn and darker looking normal teeth, so more veneers gives your mouth a natural balance.
Because dental veneers are also cosmetic procedures, they are not typically covered by insurance and do cost more than many other dental options. That means it is a good idea to consider your specific case before you choose veneers. But once you’ve made that choice, dental veneers from Dr. Chen and Dr. Skelton of Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry is a great choice.
Q: Does the Porcelain Veneers Procedure Hurt?
A: The porcelain veneer procedure is not considered painful. The teeth are numb before the procedure begins, and the amount of enamel removed is minimal for most patients. However, if you struggle with dental anxiety, make sure you ask about our sedation dentistry services, which make it possible to be consciously sedated through the procedure so you “wake up” looking and feeling more confident with your teeth with the temporary veneers that will soon be replaced with the real ones.
Q: How Much Do Dental Veneers Cost?
A: As is often the case with cosmetic dentistry, it is difficult to know the exact cost without first performing an exam, as there are different techniques and needs associated with veneers. We encourage you to call our office at Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry Phone Number 916-983-6051. We will schedule your exam as soon as possible and then give you a complete price sheet so that you can determine if veneers are suitable for your budget.
