Veneers


Dental veneers are very thin shell-like pieces of porcelain that are designed to cover the front surface of the tooth to improve its appearance. Unlike bonding material, veneers are custom-fitted to the exact shape and contour of your tooth and to as a single piece to your tooth.

At Sabeti Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer you custom-made porcelain veneers so that you can also have a Hollywood smile.

Candidates for Veneers


People who have generally good oral health are good candidates for veneers. Conversely, people who have bad lifestyle habits like smoking, biting fingernails, and excessive consumption of alcohol, coffee, cola, and tea, not good candidates for veneers.

Types of Tooth Defects That Veneers Can Fix


Veneers can be used to fix a large variety of mostly cosmetic tooth defects. These include:
•  Discolored Tooth: Intrinsic stains that develop due to use of tetracycline, excessive fluoride, or a damaged nerve cannot be removed with a whitening treatment. We can cover up these types of stains with porcelain veneers.
•  Worn Down Teeth: Enamel may become thin due to a wide variety of reasons including age, genetics, aggressive brushing, nail biting, and poor oral hygiene. In this case, the underlying yellow or grayish dentin will start to show through, making your teeth look discolored. These teeth can be protected by veneers.
•  Misaligned Teeth: Dental veneers work well if you want to close small gaps between teeth or cover slightly crooked or tilted teeth without resorting to orthodontic treatments.
•  Disproportionately Short Teeth: If you have a gummy smile or short front teeth, veneers can be used to make your teeth appear longer and enhance your smile.
•  Chipped Tooth: If you have a small chip in your tooth, veneers can be used to restore the tooth to its original shape and size and protect the tooth from further harm.

Pros of Dental Veneers


Veneers offer the following benefits:
•  Porcelain veneers are very natural-looking and mimic your natural teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile.
•  Porcelain veneers are hypoallergenic, and hence, gum tissues can tolerate them well.
•  Since veneers are made of ceramic, and they are highly resistant to stains.
•  Veneers offer a more conservative approach to restoring teeth, unlike procedures that use crowns.

Cons of Dental Veneers


Some of the disadvantages and limitations of veneers are:
•  Veneers require scaling down more enamel than is required in a bonding procedure. That means your tooth will always need to be protected, even if you decide to remove your veneers in the future.
•  Veneers can be prone to chipping and breakage, especially if you do not practice good oral habits.
•  Veneers are considerably more expensive than bonding procedures.
•  A veneer’s color cannot be changed once it is cemented into place, so people who are considering whitening procedures should get their bleaching done first.
•  Teeth with veneers can still experience decay, which may necessitate a crown in the future.
•  People who clench their teeth or suffer from bruxism are not good candidates for veneer procedures.
•  People who have thin and weak enamel may also not be able to get veneers.

If you take good care of your veneers, they can last for 7 to 15 years. If you would like us to fit you with veneers, call us at (213) 314-0636 and Dr. Shohreh Sabeti will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
