What are veneers?

Veneers give you a brilliant, Hollywood smile. These thin sheets of porcelain fit right over your existing teeth to mask major smile flaws. If your teeth are uneven, discolored, damaged, or stained, veneers are for you. Veneers are made to match your natural tooth color and have a natural-looking sheen.

What flaws can veneers correct?

Veneers make minor cosmetic imperfections disappear, giving you a gleaming smile that boosts your look and confidence. You might choose veneers to address concerns like: 

  • Wide gaps between teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discoloration that doesn’t respond to traditional whitening techniques
  • Broken teeth
  • Pointy or short teeth
  • Heavy enamel staining

Veneers are an alternative to invasive, lengthy orthodontic treatments when you have only minor problems with spacing or crowding. Veneers can alter the length and size of teeth so that your smile looks straighter and more aligned.

How do I care for veneers?

Veneers are sturdy and are cared for like your natural teeth. Brush twice daily, floss regularly, and schedule routine professional cleanings and exams. 

You should avoid chewing on hard objects, like popcorn kernels and non-food items, to prevent damage to your veneers.

What is it like to get veneers?

The amount of preparation required to get veneers depends on your particular case. Some teeth require little preparation, while others will need far more attention. Dr. Zarrin personalizes your veneer plan to your smile needs and goals.

The first step to getting veneers involves making models, getting photographs, and taking digital X-rays to create a blueprint for your treatment. Dr. Zarrin consults with you and considers your smile goals when putting together your plan.

Your veneers take at least two appointments to complete. At the first visit, Dr. Zarrin prepares your teeth to receive your permanent veneers. She takes impressions of your teeth and places temporary veneers to protect your teeth until your permanent ones come in.

At your second appointment, Dr. Zarrin places your veneers. She takes her time to make sure each one is bonded securely and that the fit is just right. You’ll get a final polish and are ready to show off your brilliant smile.
