Do you find yourself hesitating to smile because of chips, cracks, and other aesthetic concerns?
Veneers are a versatile cosmetic treatment that can conceal these issues and more in just two appointments.
The dentists at Bay View Dental, serving Clairemont, Pacific Beach, CA, and Greater San Diego, can determine if veneers are right for you.
What Are Veneers?
A dental veneer is an enamel-colored shell placed over the surface of a tooth to improve its appearance. Our dentists use them to effectively address a wide range of aesthetic flaws.
We Can Help You Become Eligible for Dental Veneers
Plaque or Cavities
We will make sure your smile is entirely healthy first before we place your veneers. Our dentists offer treatments like cleanings and dental fillings to ensure that your teeth are in good shape before cosmetic treatment.
Regularly clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth can cause damage to both natural teeth and veneers. To ensure that your smile is healthy and beautiful, we can give you a custom nightguard to help manage nightime bruxism.
If you have severe or complex misalignment, Dr. Shelton may speak with you about alternative treatments. Sometimes orthodontics, such as Invisalign®, are necessary to achieve the desired results.

Bonding vs. Veneers Which Is Right for Me?
Composite Resin For Bonding
Composite resin is a tooth-colored material used to repair tiny defects, including chips and cracks. It is not as durable or as lifelike as porcelain, but the treatment is reversible. It's also only used for smaller-scale refinements.
Porcelain For Veneers
In most cases, porcelain veneers are the optimal choice because the material is better able to reflect light like natural enamel. Veneers are also stain-resistant, stronger, and longer-lasting. They can refine one tooth, several teeth, or all of your front teeth.
Are Veneers Covered by Insurance?
Most dental insurance plans do not cover veneers, since they are considered cosmetic dentistry. However, some dental insurance companies may assist with the cost if you need a veneer to help protect a chipped or cracked tooth.
Understanding Payment Info For Your Veneers
Cost of Veneers
The average cost of veneers at our Clairemont-area practice is $700 to $1,400 per tooth, depending on your specific needs and insurance benefits. We can explore cost with you in detail during your initial consultation.
We never want cost to be a barrier between you and the high-quality treatment you deserve. To help make beautiful teeth affordable for all of our patients, we offer flexible payment options. Our team also accepts financing from CareCredit®.
