Porcelain Veneers in El Cajon
In the past, a veneer required the shaving down of the natural teeth and anesthesia. And veneers placed this way were irreversible. New developments in dentistry have made the porcelain used for veneers strong enough to be made wafer-thin and there is no need for shaving down your natural teeth.
Minimal-prep dental veneers can give you a brighter and more youthful smile without removing any healthy enamel through tooth shaving. Minimal-prep veneers are ultra-thin porcelain veneers created to adhere directly to the front of your teeth. This means some people can have the smile of their dreams without even shaving down much of their natural teeth structure. And if you ever want the veneers removed, your natural smile will still be intact.

Dental Laser Bonding
Dr. Nathan Christensen normally recommends porcelain veneers due to their greater durability and stain resistance. However, if porcelain veneers are out of your price range, an affordable alternative is dental laser bonding.
This involves using a very thin coat of tooth-colored composite resin that’s bonded onto the front of your teeth by laser in order to smooth out imperfections. However, while less expensive, cosmetic bonding isn’t as stain resistant or as strong as a veneer.
