For the best Santa Rosa porcelain veneers experience and outcome, schedule a complimentary consultation with our dental office.
What are Dental Veneers?
Porcelain veneers provide optimal smile enhancement in as little as two visits. Unlike crowns, which cover the entire area of an exposed tooth, dental veneers simply mask the surfaces visible when you smile. The thin shells of handcrafted porcelain are applied by our Santa Rosa cosmetic dentist to make teeth look:
- Properly shaped
Typically, about 6-10 dental veneers are used for a full smile enhancement. The number of porcelain veneers that you need will depend on the width of your smile and whether any other therapies are necessary.

What Can Veneers Correct?
Porcelain veneers are ideal for situations that require full smile makeovers. If you have teeth with minor crowding, gaps, uneven or chipped enamel, the veneer completely masks the flaws behind it.
When you choose porcelain veneers, the entire process is handcrafted and expertly designed, for optimal aesthetic results. Dr. Sutton precisely plans the contour and shape of each tooth, along with the unique shade and hue to complement your facial features.
Dental Veneers Procedure
Santa Rosa Dentistry and Implant Center is equipped with state-of-the-art digital scanning for a comfortable, efficient care experience. Thanks to 3D “impression” equipment, we’re able to eliminate messy impressions and immediately transfer your digital mold to our lab.
Getting veneers starts out with an initial consultation to discuss your concerns and needs. As part of your smile design process, Dr. Sutton may choose to create a “wax up” diagnostic model for you to preview our recommended veneer design. Once you’re ready to move forward with the treatment, we’ll schedule a preparation appointment and then the final placement about two weeks later. Our patient consultation team will guide you through the process as well as review the flexible financing options available.
Porcelain Veneers Testimonial
Lumineers | No-Prep Veneers
In addition to porcelain veneers, our cosmetic dentist also offers no-prep, non-invasive veneer designs. Lumineers are a special type of veneer that can be bonded directly onto your healthy tooth enamel without any reduction. Their thinner design minimizes bulkiness and the Lumineers can be removed at any point in the future should you choose to do so. For no-prep veneers in Santa Rosa, call our office today.
Dental Veneers FAQ
Not at all. As a licensed sedation dentist, we provide a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for our guests. You’ll be able to put your mind at ease and tune out everything going on around you.
Porcelain dental veneers are a permanent cosmetic treatment. If for any reason one of them chips or breaks, it will need to be replaced. However, no-prep veneers like Lumineers can be removed at any time.
Dr. Sutton’s skilled aesthetic techniques include an individual selection of the porcelain color and hue used in your veneers. Each one is handcrafted by a ceramist for optimal — yet natural — appeal.
No, but the tooth behind them can develop decay, creating a leak between the tooth and restoration. Brush and floss around your veneers daily to keep them clean.
Proper care and maintenance protect your veneers for an extended timeframe. We suggest wearing a nightguard/bite splint and scheduling regular checkups. Most veneers last well over a decade.
