As the name implies, Porcelain Veneers are very thin shells of porcelain, shaped very precisely to look completely natural, that are bonded to the surface of natural teeth. They present a great combination of form and function, since they can be made to not only look beautifully natural but also are very strong.
The procedure involves removing a thin layer of the patient's natural tooth structure, so that veneers can be bonded flush to the original surface of the teeth for a beautiful, natural appearance.
We've all seen people with cosmetic dentistry that is plainly visible - teeth that are too large, too thick, not shaped to match the rest of the natural teeth, or simply mismatched in shade. Over the last 15 years, Dr. Hosseini has placed a very large number of veneers for primarily aesthetic purposes, and has an expert hand at creating perfectly matched utterly natural smiles.
Porcelain veneers that look entirely natural are as much art as science. Doctor Hosseini has developed expertise not only in the technical aspects of creating natural smiles, but also in the art.
In addition to the cosmetic appearance of a patient's smile, a professional such as Dr. Hosseini, with expertise in Porcelain Veneers will create a structure that fully aligns and matches the natural bite of the patient thereby avoiding pain, discomfort and premature failure of the restoration.
