Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are attached to the front surfaces of teeth to help improve their shape or color. They can also be used to straighten mildly crooked teeth or close gaps between the teeth. They are a fast and long-lasting solution for enhancing your smile, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime.

Your route to a natural-looking new smile
Designing your smile
Most of Dr. Amini’s work will be performed in the design step of your veneers treatment. In your initial consultation, digital photographs of your smile will be taken. He uses these in imaging software to help him plan your new smile.
Dr. Amini will take impressions of your teeth and will create a wax-up model that shows how your teeth will look with the new veneers. Together, you will choose the shade of the porcelain for the veneers.
Preparing your teeth and fine-tuning the design
Your veneers will be placed over the course of two visits. In the first visit, your teeth are prepared and temporaries are placed. Dr. Amini will use the temporaries to fine-tune the design to make sure your veneers are to your satisfaction and the bite and function are correct. You wear these temporaries for a week or two while the final veneers are being made. This gives you and Dr. Amini a further opportunity to test the veneers’ for aesthetics and function.
Final impressions are sent to the lab, where your new porcelain veneers will be crafted. Dr. Amini uses a lab known for its artistry in layering and staining porcelain restorations.
Placing your final veneers
Dr. Amini will place you final veneers and will make sure you are happy with them. He will make any adjustments as needed, then you’ll be all set with your brand new, beautiful smile!
What can be accomplished with Porcelain Veneers?
Veneers are a fast, long-lasting solution for correcting many unwanted conditions, including gaps between the teeth, misshapen or chipped teeth, discoloration, mildly crooked teeth and teeth that have pitted or rough surfaces.
Some cosmetic dentists call veneers “instant orthodontics” because they can be used to straighten your teeth in just two visits rather than one to three years with traditional orthodontic treatments.

Dental Bonding—An economical alternative to Porcelain Veneers
Dental bonding can be a great economical alternative to veneers.
Although veneers are known to be more durable and stain-resistant, dental bonding is a great way to quickly handle imperfections such as gaps, misshapen teeth, chips and discoloration. In this treatment, Dr. Amini will apply a tooth-colored resin material and use a special light to harden it and “bond” it to the tooth. Then he will shape and polish the material so that it enhances your tooth and looks natural.
