Teeth with cracks, chips, or discoloration can undermine your confidence and make you want to hide your smile.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made shells that are lifelike and can completely cover most cosmetic flaws.

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. Furthermore, 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 can last for more than a decade with proper care. Because they are stain-resistant, they also look great for many years before needing replacement.
Can Treat One Tooth Or Many Teeth
While each individual veneer covers the visible surface of a single tooth, it is easy enough for your dentist to create multiple veneers and enhance multiple teeth.
In some cases, porcelain veneers can improve the function of your bite by correcting minor tooth misalignment. While braces can take several months to address misalignment, dental veneers can be placed in two to three visits to our dentist.
Porcelain veneers can dramatically change your smile, brighten your facial features, and improve your self-confidence. When you address issues that make you self-conscious, you can enjoy greater self-esteem in all areas of your life.

A Customized Solution
Do I Qualify for Porcelain Veneers? Candidacy Checklist
A healthy smile is essential to the long-term success of your cosmetic treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Stragier will assess the health of your teeth and gums. If he notices any oral health issues, he can treat these before moving forward with your porcelain veneers. Dr. Stragier can perform most procedures right here at our San Diego office.
Aside from being free of any tooth 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. If you do not have enough enamel, Dr. Stragier might recommend an alternative procedure like dental bonding to achieve similar results.
Before placing porcelain veneers, Dr. Stragier will also meet with you to discuss your expectations. Although veneers can deliver life-changing results, they require regular care and will eventually need to be replaced with new veneers. During your consultation, you and Dr. Stragier will discuss the treatment in detail to help you make an informed decision.
Trusted In The San Diego Community
Over the past 30 years, Dr. Stragier has used dental veneers to address a wide range of issues. As a cosmetic dentist, he has observed what works and what doesn't, and he can make an honest recommendation about your treatment.
How Much Do Veneers Cost?
The total treatment cost will vary based on each patient's unique goals and needs, but a single porcelain veneer costs approximately $1,200 to $1,300.
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. We will provide you with a transparent cost estimate for your porcelain veneers during your visit to our San Diego practice.
Porcelain veneers cost approximately $1,200 to $1,300 per veneer.
Are They Worth the Investment?
If small imperfections are giving you big insecurities, the answer is yes! Veneers can be an invaluable investment in your appearance and self-confidence. Veneers are one of the most natural-looking and transformative procedures available in cosmetic dentistry, and the results can last 10 years or more. Whether you are correcting a single chipped tooth or several teeth, veneers can help you feel great about letting your personality shine - and that's priceless.

The Veneers Procedure
The entire process takes place during two or three dental visits to our San Diego office.
Is the Process of Getting Veneers Painful?
Although most patients can complete the treatment with local anesthesia alone, patients with sensitive teeth or dental phobia can choose to receive sedation during their procedure. This can help you relax during what might otherwise be a stressful appointment. Dr. Stragier offers two types of sedation: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation. Sedation dentistry is safe and effective, allowing you to undergo your veneer treatment with ease.

Do I Have Other Options? We Offer A Wide Range of Cosmetic Dentistry
It is important to note that veneers require some permanent alterations to your tooth structure. If you want a simpler treatment, we may be able to reach your goals with other treatments. Teeth whitening, while only effective for surface stains, is an effective and affordable solution for discoloration. Dental bonding is a veneers alternative that involves applying tooth-colored resin directly onto your enamel to conceal imperfections. Although bonding is an affordable and effective solution, the results tend not to look as natural as veneers. You and Dr. Stragier can discuss which treatment will work best for your goals during your next visit to our San Diego practice.
