Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers mimic the natural appearance of your teeth with a very thin layer of porcelain. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your individual teeth to ensure flawless results. Then, Dr. Ebrahimian at Premier Dental bonds the veneers to your current teeth. Veneers hide defects such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They likewise help fortify weak teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to look more like your natural enamel. Dr. Ebrahimian thoroughly describes your choices and helps you select the best type of veneers for your needs.

What should I expect if I decide to get veneers?

Following the initial consultation to review your desired results and the kind of veneers that are best for you, you return to Premier Dental for another appointment. At this second appointment, Dr. Ebrahimian takes off a minuscule amount of enamel from the surface of your existing teeth to shape them in preparation for the veneers. Once your teeth are prepared, he makes an impression of your teeth so the dental lab can create custom veneers that are an exact fit for your mouth.

When your veneers are ready, you come back again to have the veneers fitted to each tooth. After cleaning and etching the surface of your teeth to prepare them for the bonding process, Dr. Ebrahimian applies a special cement and light source that causes the adhesive to bond securely to the porcelain. Voila! Once the cement dries, you have a new and upgraded smile!

  • Resistance to stains
