Versatile Veneers — The Ultimate Cover-Up

There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all treatment when it comes to dentistry. But there are some treatments that are so versatile, they come close to fitting the bill! 

Take dental veneers for example. This go-to treatment is an effective way to fix cosmetic and structural dental issues.

Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. They’re designed to help cover up imperfections in your teeth, creating a smooth, and flawless smile.

Dr. Ali Saeghi and our team at Modern Age Dentistry specialize in applying veneers and other dental treatments to perfect your smile. That’s why we’ve compiled this blog to share more about the versatility of veneers and help you determine if you’re a good candidate.

The ultimate cover-up

You may have heard of celebrities using veneers to create that flawless, perfectly white smile you see on TV. But veneers aren’t just for Hollywood stars!

Veneers are a virtually painless way to fix many minor dental issues, including:

Are you a candidate for veneers?

While veneers are very versatile in their applications, they aren’t for everyone. You may be a good candidate for veneers if you have:

What is the process of getting veneers?

When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Saeghi evaluates the condition of your teeth and your smile goals. If you decide to move forward with veneers, Dr. Saeghi takes X-rays of your teeth and makes an impression of your mouth.


Next, he numbs your tooth area with local anesthetic and shaves off just enough tooth enamel to make room for your new veneers. He then takes another impression of your tooth and sends it to the lab where your veneers are made.

While you wait for your veneers (typically two to four weeks), you can opt for a temporary veneer to protect your tooth. Once your custom veneers are ready, Dr. Saeghi cleans and preps your teeth, then bonds the veneers to your natural teeth using strong bonding cement. He cures the cement with a special light to speed up the process.

Finally, Dr. Saeghi takes off the remaining excess cement and checks the veneers for comfort, fit, and bite. Be sure to let him know if you have any discomfort or difficulty chewing with your new veneers. Otherwise, you are all ready to rock your new smile!
