Dental veneers are thin shells that are placed and bonded to a tooth, improving the color and functionality of the tooth. Below are picture of dental veneers before and after for a patient that chipped his front teeth that we were able to help fix with the installation of a porcelain veneer. For great looking veneers installed by an experienced dentist that has been helping patients since 1972, schedule an appointment with the Oxnard dentist with over 45 years of experience – Carson & Carson, DDS (805) 983-0717. If you are interested in the thinner alternative to veneers, we also offer lumineers at a slightly higher cost at Carson & Carson , DDS.
If you have a chipped or misaligned tooth or have discoloration due to a recent oral surgery or a have poor oral hygiene from common lifestyle activities such: as smoking, drinking dark sodas or coffee, or advanced age, then dental veneers can be an easy and cost effective cosmetic dental solution. Veneers are not recommended for patients who grind their teeth at night because they are thin and can crack or break as a result of tooth grinding over time.
The cosmetic dentistry specialists at Carson & Carson DDS. have years of experience using porcelain dental veneers to treat patients and bring back a bright white smile. (805) 983-0717.
When done properly, Dental Veneers look natural and are indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Veneers can last for anywhere between 10 to 25 years and need little maintenance outside of everyday dental hygiene (brushing, flossing, etc.)
Dental Veneers are molded to your teeth so that they are sized to fit your teeth comfortably and work with your specific dental needs.
Porcelain Veneers are tolerable with your gums, and more tolerable than older composite veneers.
If you have a tooth that is resistant to whitening or would like to have a more permanent solution for whitening your teeth, veneers can offer an affordable, long lasting solution.
Procedure for Getting Dental Veneers
The first step that we take when assessing a patient for dental veneers is diagnosing the patient. This includes examining your teeth and then discussing the cost of veneers with you & whether or not they are a good cosmetic solution for your issue. We may also make impressions of your teeth or take a CT scan or x-rays. We will talk with you about the process, the cost, and which teeth would be good candidates for this procedure.

The next step is to prepare the tooth (or teeth) for the dental veneer. The enamel of the tooth will be trimmed down to make room for the veneer. An impression of the tooth is taken which will be used to custom create the veneer.
After the dental veneer is created, we will place it on the tooth and assess the color and fit. Some additional trimming of the veneer may be necessary for optimal comfort. We apply a special cement to the veneer that, with the help of special light beam that activates special chemicals in the cement, will bond the veneer to the tooth’s surface.
The final step is removing any excess cement, evaluating your bite, and making small final adjustments.
After a small period of a couple of weeks, we ask our patients to schedule another appointment so that we can make sure the veneer fits comfortably.

I have had a lot of procedures including 8 implants. There is no better dentist office than Carson and Carson. Dr. Derek Carson (the son of Dr. Leroy Carson) is FANTASTIC! He has learned well from his father (who still works there). Papa is the MAN!, and has been for years. Insane amount of knowledge. The Doctors are THE BEST! The support staff is fun and professional always. I will never go anywhere else.
A dentist that truly understands how much the whole dental trip petrifies me - and helps me overcome it. For the first time, and certainly not the last, he used nitros oxide and I can honestly say I can look at future visits without abject terror. No more waiting until the tooth needs pulled! I may even get my teeth cleaned.
The BEST dental office in Ventura County!! Super friendly staff, easy to schedule appts, no issues with insurance processing, and Dr. Carson makes sure you are always comfortable and pain-free when getting any work done. I've been a patient for over 7 years now and I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend!
This dental office is beyond professional. A landmark of our city, to say the least. Dr. Carson has been serving our community for quite some time, with true care and concern for his patients. If you want a true dental experience, then I would highly advise you to make an appointment with them 🙂
Dr. Derek, you have a hand and a heart of gold. That spirit of help that you have is praiseworthy. I'm amazed at all the treatment you've done and I feel no pain after, not even the pain of the anesthesia sting, I say with propriety because I am very sensitive to pain. Congratulations on your work that loves what you do so you have been successful, not counting on your last generation machine that I do not know how to explain. Much gratitude, you're the best.
Today I had a procedure wisdoms teeth extracted with Dr Derek Carson. All staff it was the kindest people ever they stayed room and for the all time asking how I was feeling. The Dr was absolutely amazing! I had several shots and no leave one I feel it and about the extraction when I was thinking he will start it he ready did the extraction out me feeling any pain absolutely any discomfort. I had rest of my day as a normal day and not swallowing.I really want to thank you Dr Derek Carson to be an amazing Dentist so gentle and very professional with absolutely confidentiality.I highly recommended this office if you need to visit just for your regular cleaning or any procedure. Thank you very much!
Both doctors, father and son (Dr. Leroy and Dr. Derek), are the best of the best. I have been to different dentists due to change on my insurance coverage, but i keep coming back to Carson and Carson (even if it means paying out of pocket) because they take care of the issues others can not or are not willing to. Furthermore, the staff is truly amazing, friendly, knowledgeable, professional. I am in good hands, my family's hands.

To be honest, their fees are actually low and their work far superior compared to other dentists. Furthermore, the staff is truly amazing, friendly, knowledgeable, professional.
