Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment designed to cover the front surface of your teeth to improve the look of your smile. Veneers are porcelain or ceramic sheets that act as a protective covering or shell. If you make sure you properly take care of your veneers, they’re a long-lasting and beautiful dental solution.

Dr. Khosrovani carefully matches the size and shape or your veneer to your surrounding teeth, so it blends in perfectly.

What do veneers treat?

Dr. Khosrovani might suggest veneers to treat: 

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

You might opt for veneers if you’ve had an injury or trauma that’s damaged your teeth. Certain substances in your food can also wear down your teeth over time. Veneers are an effective and excellent way to restore your smile. 

Dr. Khosrovani always treats gum disease and cavities before he considers you for veneers. To be a suitable candidate for veneers, you must also have sufficient tooth enamel for the veneers to bond to.

What is the procedure for getting veneers?

In some cases, your veneers can be made in-office with the CEREC technology in just one office visit.

For traditional veneers, the first step is usually convenient and advanced in-office X-rays. Dr. Khosrovani might need to prepare your tooth by removing a minor amount of tooth enamel. He creates an impression of your mouth and teeth and sends it to a dental lab which makes your custom veneers. You get temporary veneers to wear in the interim. The A Briter Smile team secures your temporary veneers with removable glue.

When your veneers come back from the dental lab, usually in about a week or two, Dr. Khosrovani first attaches them to your teeth with a water-based solution for you to make sure you’re happy with how they look and feel.

Once you’re happy with your veneers, Dr. Khosrovani permanently bonds your veneers to the front surface of your teeth.
