If the teeth in your smile suffer from cosmetic imperfections like chips, stains, or discolored fillings, they can leave you feeling self-conscious about your appearance. One of the most effective ways to improve a smile like this is to have your dentist, Dr. [doctor _name], install dental veneers.

These are custom-shaped, thin, porcelain shells that are cemented onto the face of each tooth in your smile. The porcelain material can be shaded to look just like natural tooth enamel, and it will not be prone to deep stains in the future.

Dr. Shahdad Arami will first want to examine each tooth in your smile and take a few X-rays to make sure all of your teeth have enough enamel to mount a veneer. If one or more teeth have insufficient enamel or are compromised by past tooth decay issues, he might recommend having those particular teeth restored by a porcelain dental crown.

Dr. Shahdad Arami will make a detailed impression of your teeth. This will be sent to the dental lab where your porcelain dental veneers will be created.

When the dental veneers are ready, he will call you back in for a second appointment. A small amount of enamel will be removed from each tooth before the corresponding veneer will be cemented into place.
