Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers cover the front surface of your teeth like a shell. Dr. Zarabi permanently cements these porcelain sheets to your teeth during a cosmetic procedure in-office.

Veneers work well to restore:

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

Veneers last for a long time if you take care of them properly. During your initial consultation, Dr. Zarabi helps you to decide if dental veneers are right for you.

You must have enough tooth enamel for the veneers to bond to. If you’re a good candidate and do go ahead and opt for veneers, you’re first sent for X-rays to make sure you’re ready. Next, a small amount of tooth enamel might need to be removed to prepare your tooth.

The following step involves making an impression of your mouth and teeth to send to the dental lab. You’re given temporary veneers to wear in the interim.

When you receive your veneers back from the lab and you’re happy with how they look, feel, and fit, Dr. Zarabi permanently cements them to the front surface of your teeth.

Why would I need veneers?

With time, your teeth get exposed to elements and substances in food that erode and wear them down.

You might also need veneers if you’ve experienced an injury or trauma that’s damaged your teeth.

Veneers can greatly improve the appearance of cracked, chipped, stained, or discolored teeth. Many people are drawn to the natural-looking results of veneers.

What are the advantages of veneers?

Veneers are more than just a cosmetic solution and offer additional benefits, such as:

  • Improving your speech
  • Helping you to eat and chew food
  • Providing a long-lasting, natural-looking solution

While veneers can chip, they’re reliable and sturdy and if you take care of them properly, they last for many years.

Multiple veneers can be fitted at the same time and they’re an affordable option that can be completed in a few quick office visits.

Porcelain veneers are an effective cosmetic treatment for chipped or broken teeth. Call Dr. Zarabi or book online if you’re interested in veneers.
