CCustom porcelain veneers offer the optimal level of aesthetics when it comes to your smile makeover. Today’s dental veneers can transform any smile into your favorite accessory, providing a one-of-a-kind smile enhancement with our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sutton. If you’re looking for a smile makeover with porcelain veneers in Rohnert Park, call our office today and schedule your complimentary consult.
What are Veneers?
Dental veneers are high-quality, thin shells of porcelain that bond over the visible surface of the teeth in your “smile zone.” Depending on the width of your smile, most people benefit from 6-8 veneers across their upper front teeth.
Each veneer is carefully handcrafted for optimal aesthetics. When placed side by side, your new set of dental veneers provides an almost instantaneous smile makeover that looks perfectly white, straight, and properly shaped.
Real Patient Smiles:
What Dental Veneers Address
Traditional porcelain veneers are designed to correct the appearance of teeth with:
- Discoloration and deep staining
- Atypical shape
- Minor crowding or gaps
- Uneven, worn, or chipped enamel
While dental veneers don’t repair large areas of decay or fractured teeth, they can safely mask minor discrepancies to enhance the way your smile looks from the outside.
Your Initial Smile Design
Each of our dental veneer makeovers consists of a planning process consisting of a “wax up.” This integral step allows you to preview and adjust your smile enhancement before treatment being initiated. It’s just one step we take to ensure you’re thrilled with the results.
Your Veneer Treatment
Conventional porcelain veneers require a two-step process consisting of a preparation appointment and final placement. These two visits are typically scheduled about two weeks apart from one another, allowing our lab ample time to handcraft your custom dental veneers.
First, we book you for a prep visit where the teeth are slightly reduced to prevent any bulkiness once the veneers are applied. Typically, we will use a small amount of local anesthetic to prevent any sensitivity. Once each of the teeth is prepped, we use a digital scanner to record a virtual “impression” of your teeth to send to our lab. No messy impressions are needed!
While the permanent veneers are being designed, we’ll fit you with a set of temporaries to wear in the meantime. This step minimizes any sensitivity until the permanent versions are ready to deliver.
Once your porcelain veneers come back from the lab, you’ll return to our office to have the temporaries removed and the permanent veneers carefully bonded into place.

No-Prep Veneers - Lumineers
Our cosmetic dentist provides an alternative no-prep veneers option called Lumineers. Lumineers require zero tooth alteration in advance, so they’re completely non-invasive and reversible, should you ever decide to have them removed at a later time.
