What are Porcelain Veneers?

Dental veneers are porcelain or ceramic shells placed over your teeth, forming a thin layer that enhances their cosmetic appearance. These custom-made surfaces are specifically tailored to your teeth and bonded with a powerful adhesive. Veneers are among the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, providing a Hollywood smile that you will love to show off.

When selecting a dentist for dental veneers, it is crucial to choose one with the appropriate experience and training in cosmetic dentistry techniques. Equally important is selecting a dentist who will take the time to understand your aesthetic dental goals and who possesses the skill and artistry to realize your vision. Settling for anything less can result in veneers that appear unnatural and smiles that are disproportionate to the face.

Who is the Right Candidate for a Porcelain Veneer?

Porcelain dental veneers are an excellent solution for achieving a flawless smile. They can effectively address a variety of cosmetic dental issues, including crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, teeth that are too small, worn down teeth, stained or discolored teeth, and misshapen teeth. The benefits of porcelain veneers can be truly transformative. When considering the boost in self-esteem and the enhanced quality of life that comes with a well-crafted set of veneers, their advantages are undeniable.

Do Porcelain Veneers Look Like Natural Teeth?

Absolutely! One standout feature of our porcelain veneer work is its remarkably natural appearance. Each veneer is custom-designed and meticulously handcrafted to enhance the beauty of each tooth. We carefully plan the shape, size, color, and luster of every veneer to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, ensuring a stunning, star-quality smile. Moreover, I ensure that every veneer fits and bonds to the prepared teeth with absolute precision, making the restoration borders completely imperceptible.

Can I Get Just One Veneer or Will I Need a Whole Set of Veneers?

Patients can choose to receive one veneer, several veneers, or an entire smile makeover based on their specific needs, goals, and budget. During a consultation, our dedicated team will evaluate your smile and develop a personalized plan for your veneers treatment. Those who opt for a single veneer usually wish to conceal an individual tooth, and I ensure the new veneer is color-matched to the surrounding teeth for natural-looking results. In some cases, achieving the best possible outcome may require placing veneers on the surrounding teeth as well, to create a consistent and visually appealing smile. Since every patient is unique, each veneers treatment is tailored accordingly. To discover the best approach for enhancing your smile, we encourage you to schedule an appointment.

Can Porcelain Veneers Be Whitened?

Over-the-counter and professional teeth whitening treatments do not alter the shade of porcelain veneers. Depending on your needs and aesthetic goals, your veneers will either be color-matched to your natural teeth or customized to your desired level of whiteness. We often recommend that patients who want their veneers to be whiter than their natural teeth undergo teeth whitening treatments before the veneers process. This approach ensures that the porcelain veneers blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. If you wish for whiter veneers in the future, you will likely need to replace them with a new set.

What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover combines cosmetic and restorative dental procedures to correct dental imperfections and enhance the overall appearance of the teeth and smile. During an evaluation, Dr. Shahbazi and his team of dental ceramists assess the alignment, symmetry, condition, size, shape, and shade of each tooth. Coupled with a discussion of your goals, this information allows our team to develop a custom smile makeover treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and desires.
