If you want a new smile – porcelain veneers can give you the most dramatic results possible. The cosmetic dental treatment is different than any other type of dental service, in that it specifically addresses the appearance of your teeth, rather than underlying dental conditions.

Each veneer is a customized thin shell of porcelain that we bond directly to the front of your tooth. Dr. Quershi usually places 6 to 8 veneers side by side for the most significant results. You can specify just how white you want your new smile to be – and each tooth is hand designed to look just like a real tooth.

We use veneers to correct aesthetic concerns like:

  • Crowding
  • Discolored or stained enamel
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Uneven or irregular tooth shapes

First we will meet with you to discuss what aspects of your smile you want to change. Then Dr. Quershi will make recommendations as to the new size, shape and color of teeth that look appropriate for your individual characteristics. We can even create a diagnostic wax model for you to see what the proposed veneers will look like before they are ever placed – that way you can suggest minor changes in features you would like to tweak.

After we prep your teeth and bond the permanent veneers in place, you can have a brand new smile that gives you the confidence you’ve always wanted. Make that great first impression, feel comfortable smiling again, and look amazing for that special event coming up.
