Over the last few years, veneers have become one of the most popular dental treatments due to their ability to cover damaged or misshapen teeth, while also protecting them against further damage. The updated veneer options from the Anacapa Dental Art Institute allow clients to choose from 3 popular materials, with each material offering different benefits.

While each material has unique benefits and drawbacks, Anacapa Dental specialists most often recommend new porcelain veneers, as this option provides the most protection for the client’s existing teeth. Porcelain veneers are known to last 20 years or longer with proper care, and due to their high durability, can often prevent damage such as chips, cracks, and breaks.
To create a new set of porcelain veneers, the Anacapa Dental team will first build a digital recreation of the client’s mouth using touchless scanners, and then use this 3D guide to craft covers for each affected tooth. The veneers will be designed to match the original color, texture, and size of the client’s existing teeth, or to provide brighter, larger smiles, on request.
Although porcelain is the most commonly used material due to its longevity, it does offer one drawback, in that it requires the removal of a certain amount of the original teeth underneath. While this is a standard procedure, the Anacapa Dental team also offers a composite resin option, for clients who may want to remove their veneers in the future.
While these composite resin veneers are less durable, they can still last for several years, and offer the added benefit of easier installation, without having to remove as much of the original teeth. Clients may also request prepless veneers, which can be installed with minimal preparation, and are often used for minor repairs that require very little modification.
All veneer procedures can be combined with the Anacapa Dental Art Institute’s range of sedation options, which include nitrous oxide, oral-conscious, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. Clients are encouraged to discuss their sedation needs with an Anacapa representative when scheduling their appointment to ensure that everything is ready for their visit.
