A smile reveals much without saying a word. If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, however, you may not smile as readily. As a result, others may form a different impression of you than desired. Porcelain dental veneers from our experienced dentist, Dr. Arash Azarbal, may be able to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are placed over the natural teeth to enhance their color, shape, size, and symmetry. Therefore, if you have chips, cracks, stains, gaps, crowding or other cosmetic concerns, this technique can be an excellent way to address these issues.
Not everyone is an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers; in some cases, another technique, such as Invisalign®, chairside composite veneers, teeth whitening, or dental implants, may be more appropriate for your needs and goals. Dr. Azarbal emphasizes minimally invasive methods foremost to preserve healthy tooth structure, and he can help you determine if porcelain veneers can achieve your desired result during the initial consultation.
