What are dental veneers?

Consider a veneer as a thin piece of porcelain, which is placed on the front side of a tooth and serves the purpose of recreating the natural look of a tooth. At the same time, the veneer is also charged with the responsibility to add strength and resilience to the enamel of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are like a thin translucent shell type structure, which is applied directly to the surface of a tooth. The main purpose of a veneer is to mimic the natural tooth enamel, a result which is hard to achieve through any other dental treatment.

There are a number of purposes for which a dental veneer can be used but you can always get a consultation for the same from Dr Isaac Kashani at our clinic. If you are ready for that perfect smile, one that makes your personality strong and makes you feel ever ready to face any challenge in life, then we would ask you to take out some time from your busy schedule and visit our clinic, Northridge Advanced Dentistry, where Dr Isaac Kashani would prescribe the best course of dental treatments for that impeccable smile.

What is the purpose of dental veneers?

Dental veneers are used to treat a number of dental issues, some of which are fairly common, while others might be perceived as hard to treat. Here are some of the common cause for which, our patients avail a treatment for dental veneers:

  1. Treating mis - shapen teeth.
  2. Treating crooked teeth.
  3. Fixing broken and chipped teeth.
  4. Concealing dark, yellowed, and stained teeth.
  5. Fixing washed out fillings, stained fillings and unsightly fillings.
  6. Fixing up the spaces between teeth.
  7. Changing the shape of the tooth
  8. Altering the length of a tooth
  9. Covering and concealing teeth in any other manner.

Surely, it must appear quite surprising to wonder how these alterations can be made to a tooth but with dental veneers, all of it is possible, and that too, without much effort. At Northridge Advanced Dentistry, you can avail the treatment at a very reasonable cost, right from the experts in the field, Dr Isaac Kashani.

What is the procedure involved in placing a dental veneer?

At Northridge Advanced Dentistry, it will take up to 2 – 3 sittings for Dr Isaac Kashani to complete the dental treatment for your veneers. However, before beginning the treatment, Dr Isaac Kashani will carry out a detailed examination of your teeth and mouth, to evaluate perfectly well, if the treatment will be suitable for you.

  1. During this process, our team of dentists might also remove a very minute amount of enamel from your teeth, for preparing each tooth for adaption to your veneers. For a temporary period, they may fix your teeth with veneers, until your custom made and tailor made veneers arrive.
  2. Even with the advanced aesthetics and technology available at our clinic, it might take anywhere between two to three weeks, for your custom veneers to arrive. The treatment cannot progress any further unless they do, so you have to bear that gestation period with the temporary veneers.
  3. Once your veneers arrive, Dr Isaac Kashani will be able to fix them on your teeth permanently. After doing so, all that will be left will be to assess the fit of the veneers and their colour, in contrast to your natural teeth. This is necessary to ensure that there are no troubles with the fit of the veneers at a later stage.
  4. Once our dentists are satisfied with the fit and colour of your custom made veneers, they will be able to bond the veneers to your teeth for a secure fit, using a special bonding cement, which is typically used for dental purposes.

Doing so, completes the process of fixing your dental veneers for a lasting and reliable result. Let us get to know more about dental veneers.

Are there any alternatives to dental veneers?

Before going for any random dental treatment, it is important to understand that the requirement of each patient, as concerns his dental condition, are different. It is important to discuss your goals with Dr Isaac Kashani beforehand, so that they can guide you about all aspects of your cosmetic treatment. At the same time, it will also be important to assess your dental health, so that it is not compromised during the treatment. This discussion will bring out the finer details of your dental treatment and ensure that dental veneers are the right choice of treatment for you.

Porcelain veneers can give you a new and bright smile to go with, and address a wide range of dental concerns but at the same time, they might also require several visits to complete.

Let us take a look at some of the common alternatives to dental veneers, which might be recommended to you by Dr Isaac Kashani.

  1. Cosmetic bonding is one likeable alternative to dental veneers. However, the treatment does not come without limitations. For one, it is not a durable option to be considered. Prone to chipping and cracking, cosmetic bonding is hardly the alternative to dental veneers that you are looking for.
  2. Crowns are considered to be a healthy way to restoration of the same issues, which dental veneers cater to. The slight but pertinent difference between the two lies in the fact that dental crowns will conventionally cover your entire tooth, while a dental veneer only covers the front side of a tooth.

How long does a conventional veneer last?

By nature of their design porcelain veneers are crafted to last for a lifetime, which is largely dependent upon the maintenance and upkeep of the teeth by the patient. In order to ensure that the procedure continues to function at optimum levels, it is of utmost importance that the patient must include a proper hygiene and cleaning habits in his routine. At the same time, it is recommended that the patient also continues to visit our clinic to consult Dr Isaac Kashani for their advice.

One of the most common concerns that we have encountered with few of our patients is the question if the procedure of adapting dental veneers is a painful one. The speculation is quite common for Dr Isaac Kashani, and also fairly expected, since most patients associate all dental treatments to a painful journey.

Patients should also know that decay in teeth and injuries might lead to the veneers breaking. It is important to be gentle with your teeth after the treatment. Brushing and flossing on a regular basis should not be missed. Always make use of a non - abrasive toothpaste and avoid chewing or biting on hard food stuffs. Ripping open a simple bag of chips with your teeth may lead to a chip and fracture of the veneer. When you visit our clinic in the future, make sure to let your dentist know that you have dental veneers on your teeth, which will help them in treating your teeth accordingly.

At Northridge Advanced Dentistry, every effort is made to ensure that a patient’s treatment is administered in a painless and comfortable manner. However, a certain degree of sensitivity is common after the treatment. However, any form of discomfort generally recedes within 3 days of the treatment. Anything longer than that could be a cause of worry, for which, we would strongly recommend you to come and meet Dr Isaac Kashani.

Recovering after the treatment

After a treatment for porcelain veneers has been carried out on your teeth, your mouth will feel numb from the anaesthesia for a few hours. Hot and cold temperatures might cause sensitivity for a few days to follow post the treatment.

Although our dentists can perform the treatment at any time, it is advisable to get it done at a time when you do not have to return to an important appointment, after taking a scheduled meeting with Dr Isaac Kashani. It is important to watch what you eat for the first few days after the treatment has been done. Softer foods, which are easy to chew, give you enough time to adjust to the fresh treatment, without putting much strain on your teeth. For the first few days, you might get a feeling that the veneers are not quite right, or else, you may face problems with their alignment. However, that is quite natural and bound to happen, mostly because of the foreign nature of the veneers, which take place in your mouth and teeth. You will need to give them a few days’ time to adjust to the change.

Is it possible to further whiten a veneer?

As a matter of fact, veneers should not require bleaching, and in fact, they should not be. At the same time, they should ideally not change their colour over time. Regular staining, such as from coffee or wine, should easily come off with your regular cleaning routine. However, a patient must remain wary of any other changes in the colour of a veneer, since it could point towards other impending issues in the teeth.

With the modern day advancement in the field of dentistry, Dr Isaac Kashani make use of exceptionally high quality dental bonds and isolation techniques. Owing to these, events such as darkening of the tooth underneath, or a leakage under the veneers must not happen. However, in the rare case that it is found necessary, the existing veneers might have to be removed to assess the damage under them.

What is the average cost involved in the procedure?

Northridge Advanced Dentistry is one of the leading dental clinics in the area, and offers absolutely reasonable and cost effective treatment options to its customers. Therefore, taken on an average, a dental veneers treatment might cost a patient anywhere between $6,000 - $6,500 at our clinic.

The cost for the same also varies depending upon the number of teeth for which the treatment is to be done, and the complexity of the situation. We may also be able to accept some insurance options in payment for the treatment, for which, you will have to consult our reception desk.

Do veneers look unnatural and fake?

Dental veneers are designed to look perfect, flawless and optimum. For this reason, they will never be designed with even a single defect in them. As a result, your teeth might end up appearing unnatural after the treatment. At the same time, it is important to manifest the real goal of the treatment, which is to enhance the appearance of the teeth. For this purpose, Dr Isaac Kashani sometimes accommodate special requests from patients, who demand slight imperfections in their veneers, such as changing the colour of the veneers from a perfect white to a pale white, adding some chips and even cracks in the veneers. This results in a more natural look of the teeth.
