Transform Your Smile with Dr. Kelley Mingus: Exploring Porcelain Veneers

“Your smile is your best accessory,” says Dr. Kelley Mingus, an experienced cosmetic dentist in San Francisco, CA. “If you’re not happy with the look of your teeth, it can affect your self-confidence and even your overall well-being.” But there are many ways to improve the appearance of your smile, including porcelain veneers – a popular and effective option for enhancing discolored, chipped, or crooked teeth.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain, which are custom-designed to fit over the front surface of each tooth. These veneers are an excellent option for transforming a dull, damaged, or crooked smile into a more beautiful one. They can be used to correct a wide range of dental defects, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and misaligned teeth.

The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer several benefits over other cosmetic dentistry treatments. They are highly durable, resistant to stains, and natural-looking. Veneers can cover up imperfections of the teeth while providing a more attractive appearance. Additionally, porcelain veneers require less enamel removal than other dental procedures,

What To Expect From the Procedure

The process of getting porcelain veneers begins with a consultation with Dr. Mingus. She will examine your teeth and discuss your goals for the treatment to determine if veneers are the right option for you. If you and Dr. Mingus decide that porcelain veneers are the best choice, your teeth will be prepared by lightly etching the surface, and then an impression will be taken of your mouth. This impression will be sent to a dental lab, where your custom-designed veneers will be created. In the meantime, you will be provided with a temporary set of veneers to wear while your permanent ones are being made.

Once your permanent veneers are ready, Dr. Mingus will bond them to your teeth using a special dental cement, ensuring a secure, tight fit. Finally, your new smile will be revealed.


Once your new veneers are in place, proper oral hygiene is essential for maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile. Dr. Mingus recommends that you brush and floss twice a day, and visit her office for regular check-ups and cleanings. Your porcelain veneers should look and feel natural, and with proper care, they can last for many years.
