The Perfect Smile Has Never Been Closer!

Anxiety about the look of your smile is all too common. Wondering if the person you're talking to is fixated on the chipped tooth... the gap... the yellow shade... It's tiresome.

A smile should be a source of joy... An expression of love or compassion... A greeting for a friend... But never a source of stress. There are plenty of other things to worry about - this year especially. Your smile shouldn't be one of them.

Fortunately, modern Cosmetic Dentistry is capable of some truly amazing things! Whether your concerns are big or small, we're equipped with powerful tools to help you transform your teeth.

One of the most powerful tools, is the dental veneer. A small shell that fits over your natural tooth to give it that perfect look.

Imagine finally having the straight, symmetrical, radiant white smile of your dreams. No more worry about what people see. No more hesitation. Just care-free smiles and more joy in this world!

What Are Dental Veneers?

Illustration of Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are a treatment option for many conditions, including:

  • Cracked or chipped tooth surfaces.
  • Discoloration and stains.
  • Gaps or other asymmetries in your smile.

Dental Veneers are a thin porcelain shell that's custom fit to the tooth. An adhesive bonds the shell to your existing tooth surface to hide any imperfections.

They have a very natural appearance, and require removing less of your tooth structure than alternatives like crowns or dental implants.

Porcelain veneers can last for many years, and can provide everything from a minor touch-up on a single tooth, to a complete smile transformation!

Who Should Consider Veneers?

Veneers are a great cosmetic option for people who want to improve the look of their smile, and have generally healthy teeth and gums.

If you have any current decay or gum disease, it will most likely need to be treated first (which we're happy to help you with).

Porcelain Veneers do require removal of a small amount of your natural tooth enamel to make room for the shell (it's a permanent treatment).

It is possible to crack a Veneer on hard foods, or if you grind your teeth. If you do grind, you might also want to consider a night-guard to help protect them.

What Her Patients Are Saying

Porcelain Veneers F.A.Q.

During your complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultation, we'll go over the procedure in detail and make sure you have all the information you need to make a decision. Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions about dental veneers as a starting point for our face to face conversation.

Composite and Porcelain are the 2 types of cosmetic dental veneers to enhance your smile. Composite are typically made on the premises in a single visit, while porcelain are sent to be custom manufactured in a lab.


  • Look more natural than composite
  • Maintain their color better than composite
  • Are more durable than composite


  • Are easier to repair, but may need to be repaired more often
  • Are cheaper and require a single visit
  • Are more stain resistant than porcelain

Dr. Hain recommends porcelain in the vast majority of cases, and we'll discuss what's right for your unique circumstances during our consultation at our San Francisco, CA office.

Dental veneers can fix a number of cosmetic imperfections with your smile, including:

  • Stains and Discoloration
  • Alignment
  • Shape (including chipped teeth)

They're a more conservative cosmetic dentistry treatment than some alternatives (e.g. crowns) which can require removing far more of your natural tooth structure.

They're also long lasting and easy to maintain (similar to your natural teeth).

Caring for dental veneers is relatively simple. They standard regimine of brushing twice a day and flossing is recommended, and there's no extra maintenance you'll need to perform.

While they're quite durable, you should be aware that hard foods or grinding your teeth can cause damage in some cases.

Every case is different, but porcelain generally holds up well. 10-15 years between replacement is fairly common.

As a Cosmetic Dentist focused on high quality treatments, Dr. Hain is pleased to offer premium quality porcelain veneers from a top of the line dental lab, and also collaboratres with a Master Ceramist. We'll discuss pricing and payment options during your complimentary cosmetic dentistry consultation, but expect approximately $1,900-$2,000 per-tooth.

While veneers are a great option for fixing many cosmetic dental issues, there are some things to keep in mind:

  • The process is not reversible (since some of your tooth structure is removed)
  • Chips or cracks can't be permanently repaired (a new one would need to be placed)
  • If you grind your teeth, they're more prone to cracking (consider a night-guard)
