Purpose of Dental VeneersDental veneers are one of the most efficient ways to mask a number of cosmetic dental problems. These veneers come in a variety of materials, allowing Dr. Zadeh, a leading dentist in Beverly Hills, to help you choose the type that best suits your needs.

 

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front of the teeth. They are an efficient way to cover a number of cosmetic dental problems, such as badly stained teeth, worn teeth, unusually small teeth, poorly spaced teeth, or irregularly shaped teeth. They can usually be applied in just two office visits and can last up to 15 years.

 

Dr. Zadeh offers two general types of veneers: traditional porcelain veneers and Lumineers. Traditional veneers are slightly thicker and more opaque, whereas Lumineers are designed to be ultra-thin, allowing a little natural light to shine through. Lumineers often look more natural, but traditional veneers mask heavy stains and discolorations more efficiently. Another consideration is the method of applying the veneers. To apply traditional veneers, Dr. Zadeh must remove a small amount of dental enamel from the front of the teeth. Because Lumineers are thinner, they usually do not require any enamel removal.
