Enhance Your Smile With Dr. Villalobos
Veneers are thin shells that can be placed over the surface of your teeth to hide cosmetic flaws. They’re made from durable, natural-looking porcelain to ensure a stunning appearance and long-lasting results. Dr. Villalobos will customize your veneers so they blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Typically, we recommend veneers for treating the following issues:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
Our Veneers Process
Getting veneers is a quick and easy process that can be completed in just two short trips to our office. During your first appointment, Dr. Villalobos will take detailed impressions of your teeth so your veneers can be custom-crafted to match them perfectly. He’ll also gently buff and re-shape the surface of your teeth to ensure a comfortable fit.
In a couple of weeks, your veneers will be ready and you can return to our office for your second appointment. After double-checking their fit and appearance, Dr. Villalobos will bond the veneers directly to your teeth with a strong dental resin. To complete the procedure, he’ll shine a specialized light on your teeth to harden the resin and solidify the bond with your veneers.
Lumineers are an ultra-thin alternative to traditional veneers. The thinner material creates an ultra-translucent appearance, providing you with a beautiful smile that will impress people wherever you go. They also require less preparation for your tooth, making them a more convenient option for some patients.
Since they’re so thin, Lumineers may not be effective for deep stains or discoloration. During your initial consultation with Dr. Villalobos, he’ll examine your teeth and help you determine which cosmetic treatment is the best solution for you.

To help get the most out of your veneers, try to avoid habits that can damage your teeth such as biting your fingernails.
Veneers are an elective cosmetic procedure, so most insurance plans won’t cover them.

If a veneer falls out or gets damaged, just stay calm and don’t make any rash decisions. Don’t attempt to fix the veneer yourself, as this can lead to further issues. Instead, do your best to store the veneer in a safe place until Dr. Villalobos is able to see you.
Veneers can be maintained just like natural teeth, with daily brushing and flossing. It’s also crucial to visit Dr. Villalobos every six months for a cleaning and exam. As long as you keep up with your oral care routine, your veneers will last for several years.
