veneers-smile(< Actual patient) Porcelain veneers are a versatile and durable solution for treating a number of minor cosmetic dental problems.

A consultation with Santa Monica cosmetic dentist Dr. Ana Brightleaf will determine if porcelain dental veneers are the ideal cosmetic dental treatment for you. Dr. Brightleaf custom creates porcelain veneers that are designed to match your surrounding teeth in size, shape and color to provide you with a vibrant, natural-looking smile.

In addition to their durability and natural appearance, porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and easy to maintain with a good dental hygiene routine.

What’s the process?

dental-faq-brightleafdentalPorcelain veneers are thin slivers of porcelain that are placed on the front surfaces of your teeth. During your initial appointment, Dr. Brightleaf will make impressions of your teeth, which will serve as the basis for your custom-made dental veneers. After your veneers have been crafted, you will return to Brightleaf Dental for their placement.

Dr. Brightleaf will ensure your dental veneers fit seamlessly and are properly tinted to match your adjacent teeth. Once you are happy with the appearance, Dr. Brightleaf will bond the veneers to your teeth.

Porcelain veneers can be used to treat many common cosmetic dental problems including:

  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth
  • Misshaped teeth

Natural looking

One of the main reasons porcelain veneers are so popular is because they look very natural when placed by a skilled cosmetic dentist like Dr. Brightleaf. Because each veneer is handcrafted and custom-fit, you can expect perfection.


The procedure for preparing your teeth for and placing porcelain veneers requires only two office visits. During your first visit, impressions will be taken of your teeth and your teeth will be prepared for the eventual placement of your custom-made porcelain veneers. After your veneers are crafted, you will return to have the veneers placed on bonded to the surfaces of your affected teeth.


Porcelain veneers are often an ideal solution for restoring bright smiles to those who have deeply stained teeth that do not respond to other whitening treatments. Even better, porcelain is resistant to staining, allowing you to maintain a vibrant smile for years to come.

Easy to maintain

Porcelain veneers are easy to maintain with a good oral hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing at least twice every day, and regular check-ups and teeth cleanings with Santa Monica cosmetic dentist Dr. Ana Brightleaf.
