Dental Quiz: Veneers in San Diego

In the last two decades, veneers have become a go-to cosmetic treatment. These individually crafted porcelain shells will adhere to the front of your teeth, and they can conceal many types of cosmetic flaws. Veneers at our San Diego practice are crafted with advanced porcelain. Dr. Georgaklis and our partner lab will carefully match the material to the natural color of your teeth. Plus, the porcelain has a slight translucence and a natural interplay with light, giving it a sparkle that is almost identical to dental enamel. If you are considering veneers from your La Jolla cosmetic dentist, it is important to know as much about the treatment as possible. Take our quiz to learn more about veneers and make a more informed decision about your cosmetic care. […]

Common Questions about La Jolla Veneers

Over the last two decades, porcelain veneers have changed the way that we think about cosmetic dentistry. These very thin, custom-crafted restorations will attach to the front of your teeth to conceal numerous aesthetic flaws.

If you are considering San Diego veneers, you naturally want to know as much about the treatment as possible. Dr. Georgaklis and his team are always ready to answer your questions and to keep up-to-date about every step of your procedure. […]

Porcelain Veneers vs. Dental Bonding

If you want to enjoy a brighter, more stunning smile, you have a number of cosmetic dentistry options to choose from. Two of the most popular and versatile treatments are porcelain veneers and dental bonding. Both treatments can achieve similar results, and they each have their own unique advantages. For example, if you are looking for a cheap dentist in San Diego, you may want to consider bonding. Although Dr. Georgaklis will provide outstanding results, this treatment typically costs less than other cosmetic procedures. On the other hand, if you want the most lifelike results possible, porcelain veneers may be a better solution. […]
