Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin, tooth-shaped shells that are permanently affixed to the front-facing portion of your teeth, where they cover up minor cosmetic defects and improve the aesthetics of your smile. Once they’re sealed in place, veneers look and feel just like improved versions of your natural teeth.

Orangecrest Family Dental Practice also offers state-of-the-art Lumineers®, which have a few advantages over traditional veneers.

They’re more translucent, which gives them an even more natural appearance, and they’re ultra-thin, which means that Dr. Mohammadizadeh can install them without having to shave down as much enamel. In some instances, she can even install them without shaving down any enamel at all!

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers are a quick, cost-effective, and minimally invasive solution for correcting teeth that are:

  • Crooked
  • Chipped
  • Broken
  • Stained
  • Worn or dull

Veneers can also be used to close up gaps between your teeth if you have spacing concerns.

What are the benefits of veneers?

In addition to improving your smile, restoring confidence in your appearance, and boosting your self-esteem, veneers have a number of benefits, such as:

  • Stain-resistance
  • Not irritating to your gums
  • Comfortable in your mouth
  • Less expensive than bridgework, orthodontics, and dental surgery

Veneers are also incredibly easy to maintain and can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth.

How do I get veneers?

Dr. Mohammadizadeh can upgrade your smile with veneers in just a few office visits.

During your first visit, you discuss your aesthetic goals with Dr. Mohammadizadeh and pick a size and color for your veneers that best compliments your face and blends in with your natural smile.

Next, Dr. Mohammadizadeh shaves a thin layer of enamel off of the front-facing portion of your teeth, where the veneers will be applied. She takes an impression of your smile that she sends off to a lab — where your veneers will be fabricated — and sends you home with a temporary solution.

When your permanent veneers are ready, you come back to the office for another visit. Dr. Mohammadizadeh removes your temporary veneers and checks the fit and appearance of your permanent solution. If you’re happy with how they look and feel, she permanently bonds each veneer to your smile with dental cement.

You’ll leave the office with the smile you’ve always dreamed of and the confidence to share it with the world. Start on the path to your dream smile today by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Mohammadizadeh at Orangecrest Family Dental Practice. You can book your visit by phone or online.
