Quality Treatment. Fast Results.
San Diego True Design Dentistry patients can have the smile of a lifetime in just a two to three appointments. Your first visit will include a consultation with us to discuss what you would like to change about your smile. Depending on your needs, we may create a mock-up model with your prospective veneer design before your actual treatment.
After your consultation we will set up a preparation appointment where your teeth are gently shaped and slightly roughened so that a veneer can bond securely to your enamel. We will then take an impression so that we can create models of your mouth and then design the perfect set of permanent veneers. Until then, we will place temporary restorations over your teeth to prevent sensitivity.
In 2 weeks, your custom-designed veneers are ready! Dr. Refahi will remove the temporary restorations, clean the teeth, and then bond your beautiful porcelain veneers permanently into place. No anesthesia is necessary. You’ll walk out the front door with a brand new smile that you can’t wait to show off!
