Smile Like You Mean It: The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Just Like Natural Teeth
Because dental veneers are made of porcelain, they closely resemble the appearance of natural teeth, and your unique porcelain veneer can be color-matched to your surrounding teeth for excellent cosmetic results.
Great Longevity and Durability
Dental veneers are thin yet strong, and they can last for more than a decade with proper care.
Can Treat One Tooth Or Many Teeth
Veneers only cover the visible surface of one tooth at a time without affecting the surrounding teeth. This solution can be applied to multiple teeth in order to meet your goals.
About Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are an excellent choice to improve the appearance of teeth that are cracked, chipped, misaligned, gapped, discolored, or irregularly shaped. High-grade dental porcelain is used to achieve natural-looking results.
Veneers are custom-made for each individual patient, and most patients qualify for this cosmetic treatment. Aside from being free of any decay or gum disease, the most important qualification is a sufficient amount of enamel on the natural tooth. To place veneers, the cosmetic dentist needs to remove a small amount of enamel, so if your teeth do not have enough, they might not be the right choice for you. In these cases, Dr. Stragier might recommend dental bonding to achieve similar results.
Once placed, veneers can be treated like natural teeth. Because porcelain is strong, patients can expect this solution to last for many years. However, for the longest-lasting results, it is recommended that you avoid using your veneers to bite into especially hard foods such as raw carrots, ice, or hard candy. Porcelain veneers can be maintained with basic oral hygiene (regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist).
Dr. Stragier, Pam, Terry and the dental hygienists are the BEST I've ever been to. Dr. Stragier's techniques are very gentle and he doesn't try to sell procedures you may not need. Even my (reluctant patient) husband has done very well there for many years.View On Google

Dr. Stragier has made himself available after hours to take care of emergency dental issues. A comfortable and stress free environment.View On Google
Porcelain Veneers by Dr. Stragier
At Balboa Dental Care in San Diego, CA, Dr. Stragier offers his patients personalized general and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Stragier has been a dentist in San Diego for more than 30 years and uses this experience to consistently provide beautiful results.
If you are interested in porcelain veneers, the first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stragier. When you arrive at our state-of-the-art facility, Dr. Stragier will examine your teeth and determine whether veneers are the right choice for you. If you and the dentist both agree to move forward with veneers, another appointment will be scheduled to prepare your smile.
At your next appointment, Dr. Stragier will remove a small amount of enamel from the front surface of the tooth (or teeth) to prepare for veneer placement. An impression will be made of your tooth, which will be used to craft your custom porcelain veneer at an off-site laboratory. After about two weeks, your dental veneer will be complete, and you can come back into the office to have it bonded to your tooth.
How Much Does It Cost?
The total treatment cost will vary based on each patient's unique goals and needs, but our costs start at $1,250 per veneer. Because the procedure is a form of cosmetic dentistry, it is not covered by dental insurance. However, Balboa Dental Care offers financing options to make dental veneers an affordable option on virtually any budget.
