Veneers are thin, handcrafted porcelain shells that we permanently bond to the front of your teeth. Each individual veneer is designed exclusively for you. Dr. Beizaee and Dr. Saati will consider your facial symmetry, skin tone, and the size of your features when designing your veneers to make them as natural as possible.

They can be completed in just 2-3 visits, making them a quick, easy and painless way to greatly enhance your smile.

Veneers may be a good option if you have:

  • Stained, chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Worn or misshaped teeth
  • Crooked front teeth
  • (no need for braces)

With porcelain veneers, you can have the smile you’ve always wanted. The veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that will cover the front surface of your teeth to give your teeth a new look. The best part is that only minimal reduction of your tooth is necessary. The veneer will be designed to have the shade, shape, and size that will look best for your smile.

Veneers are especially recommended for teeth that are fractured, would require a large filling, or have a mottled appearance due to fluorosis, staining that cannot be whitened by whitening techniques, or gaps small enough to be closed by the veneer.

Veneers can give your teeth a more natural, aesthetically pleasing appearance and are stain resistant and soft on gums.

Veneers are also used to correct uneven teeth, worn enamel, discoloration, chipped teeth and irregular spacing, and can last over 20 years. In some cases, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can protect a damaged tooth from further harm.

After a thorough examination of your teeth, which may include X-rays and taking impressions of your teeth, your dentist will remove a thin layer of enamel from your teeth. Then he or she will create an impression and send it off to a laboratory to create the veneer. While the mold is being created, your dentist may provide you with temporary veneers. Finally, the veneer’s size and color are given one last adjustment before they are cemented to your tooth on your second visit.

Types of Veneers
  • Porcelain
  • Resin Composite
  • Lumineers

Since porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains and chipping, they are generally more expensive. Lumineers are a particularly popular type of porcelain veneers that do not require your teeth to be shaved and can even be placed over crown or bridgework. A custom-made set of Lumineers can be installed in 2-3 visits and is proven to last over 20 years.

Will My Insurance Cover Veneers?

As this procedure is elective and primarily cosmetic, most dental insurers will not cover veneers. Talk to your dentist about the financing options available.
