5 Smile Flaws Remedied by Veneers
If yellowed or cracked teeth force you to hide your smile, it’s time to consider the magic of veneers. Learn how custom veneers can instantly transform your smile with results that last for years.

If you’re looking for a minimally invasive way to achieve a brilliant smile, veneers may be the solution.

At DDS Concierge, our skilled dentist, Edward Delshad, DDS, offers custom porcelain veneers that can address a range of dental issues that can lower the wattage of your smile. Dr. Delshad and our team provide comprehensive exams to assess your oral health and determine if veneers are right for you.

What to know about veneers

Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that fit over the front surface of your teeth. Each veneer is custom-made to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth. They bond snugly to your teeth with minimal preparation and no need for downtime.

To get your custom veneers, we take molds of your teeth during your initial visit. We send the molds to a medical lab that creates your veneers with a quick turnaround time.

At your next appointment, Dr. Delshad preps your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel. He ensures your veneer fits properly over the front of each tooth before bonding it into place with durable dental cement.

Once in place, veneers give you instant results that last for years. Many people enjoy their veneers for 15 years or longer with good oral hygiene and routine dental checkups.

5 reasons to consider veneers

Several common dental flaws can affect your smile and even your self-confidence. The custom veneers we offer at DDS Concierge can address issues like:

1.Chips and cracks

Chips and cracks can occur if you grind your teeth or suffer an injury to your mouth. These issues not only influence the appearance of your smile, but they can also weaken your teeth and make them susceptible to more damage.

2. Discoloration

As you get older, your enamel thins and can make more of the underlying dentin visible. This can give your teeth a yellowed tint and affect how you feel about your smile.

You can also experience gray tooth discoloration due to injuries.

3. Stains

Wine, coffee, and tea are common examples of food items that can stain and dull your teeth, especially if you consume them frequently. Deep-set stains can be difficult to remove with brushing alone.

If you’re not interested in veneers but want to eliminate stains, we also offer professional teeth whitening services in the office.

4. Irregularly shaped teeth

If you’re unhappy with your smile because of misshapen or irregularly shaped teeth, veneers can make your smile more symmetrical.

5. Small teeth

If you feel your teeth are too small, we can apply custom veneers that make the visible front teeth look slightly larger.

In just two visits, our dental experts can cover up these smile flaws so you’ll be ready to show off your pearly whites. Because we match the veneers to the shade of your existing teeth, your results look (and feel) completely natural.
