What are veneers?

Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic dental treatment to give you a smile you can feel confident to share. They’re thin porcelain shells that Dr. Badie attaches to the fronts of your teeth to cover a wide range of imperfections ranging from discoloration to unevenly sized teeth.

Dr. Badie can tint the porcelain to match your teeth for a natural appearance, and the veneers are custom-made to fit your teeth precisely, providing the smile you’ve always wanted.

Veneers are also resistant to staining and decay, so your newly enhanced smile can last for 10 years or more with proper care. Taking care of your veneers is simple. You just need to brush and floss regularly and continue to have your routine dental exams and professional cleanings.

How are veneers applied?

In most cases, Dr. Badie applies veneers in just two appointments. During your first appointment, he examines your teeth to ensure that veneers are the best treatment to give you a beautiful smile. Then, he prepares your teeth for the veneers by removing a very thin layer of tooth enamel. This creates just enough space for your veneers to fit in with your teeth for a smooth, natural appearance.

Next, Dr. Badie takes digital pictures and molds of your teeth, which he sends to a state-of-the-art dental lab to create your custom veneers. Before you leave your first appointment, Dr. Badie applies temporary veneers to protect your teeth while your permanent veneers are made.

At your second appointment, Dr. Badie removes your temporary veneers and fits your custom veneers to your teeth. He checks the fit and your bite before permanently bonding the veneers to your teeth and polishing them until they shine like natural teeth.

Am I a good candidate for veneers?

Veneers are an excellent cosmetic dental treatment for almost everyone. Dr. Badie often recommends veneers to correct issues such as:

  • Staining and discoloration
  • Unevenly shaped or sized teeth
  • Gaps or overlapping teeth
  • Minor chips or cracks
  • Thinning enamel
