Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

One of the easiest ways to mask flaws in your smile without extensive surgery is with veneers. Veneers are very thin shell-like covers that bond to the front of your teeth. They are shaped and colored to look just like your real teeth and act as a mask for any imperfections.

Dr. Asma Muzaffar has helped countless patients achieve a beautiful, picture-perfect smile with custom veneers.

What flaws can veneers fix?

Veneers are ideal for fixing minor imperfections and flaws in your smile, such as:

  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped or broken teeth
  • Severe tooth discoloration
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Misshapen or uneven teeth

What are the benefits of veneers?

Veneers offer numerous benefits to patients who want a cosmetic makeover of their smile. These benefits include:

  • Instant results
  • Thin, tooth-like structure
  • Blend in with the rest of the teeth
  • Highly durable
  • Will not stain easily
  • Easy to place
  • In-office procedure
  • No incisions or surgery
  • Relatively painless procedure

How are veneers placed?

One of the biggest benefits of veneers is there is no surgery or downtime involved. After taking impressions and ordering your custom veneers from the lab, Dr. Muzaffar bonds the shell-like structures directly to the front of your teeth. She may need to remove some tooth enamel to place the veneers perfectly and reshape the veneers to ensure a proper fit.

The veneers are cut and colored to look just like your real teeth so nobody will be able to tell you had cosmetic work done. Dr. Muzaffar does everything she can to ensure the final results looks as natural as possible.

Once the veneers are bonded, Dr. Muzaffar checks the bite and may further reshape the profile of your teeth. Once everything is perfectly placed, you will be able to see your new smile.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers are designed to last as long as 15 years. Your veneers will last if you can maintain good oral hygiene and keep your gums in good health.

Since your natural tooth is still supporting the veneer, you need to continue brushing diligently. It is also important that you take good care of your gums by flossing and schedule regular cleanings and checkups every six months.
