What are Veneers?

Dental veneers are a thin, translucent layer of porcelain that fits over an existing tooth to give it an improved shape, color, or size. Essentially, veneers are covers that are put on top of your natural teeth that can be made to look exactly like natural tooth enamel with the latest technology in dentistry. They are often used to create custom smiles.

Porcelain veneers in Beverly Hills by Dr. Maddahi DDS are designed to do this and much more. Dr. Maddahi has taken the art of porcelain veneers and crowns to a much higher level, utilizing them to provide support where it may be missing.

Porcelain veneers can strip away years of unwanted age from a patient’s face by making the entire lower third appear full and youthful.

These new, revolutionary techniques of enhancing the smile are making waves in the entire cosmetic industry, leaving patients looking as though they’ve had much more than just their teeth done. By opening up the bite and building out the arch with porcelain veneers and crowns, Dr. Maddahi is able to decrease wrinkles and lines around the mouth that had previously been difficult to target with fillers and other injectables.

Who is a Candidate for Porcelain Veneers? 

Individuals with various cosmetic dental concerns seeking a transformative solution for their smile are great candidates for porcelain veneers. Here are a few more characteristics: 

  • Cosmetic issues: Veneers are suitable for correcting issues such as discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, uneven spacing, and minor misalignments.
  • Good oral health: Candidates should have overall good oral health, with healthy gums and teeth free from untreated cavities or infections.
  • Stable bite: A stable and well-aligned bite is essential for the success of porcelain veneers, as they are not typically recommended for individuals with significant bite issues.
  • Commitment to oral hygiene: Candidates should be committed to maintaining excellent oral hygiene practices to ensure the longevity of the veneers.
  • Realistic expectations: It's important for individuals to have realistic expectations and understand that veneers are a permanent alteration to the teeth.
  • Consultation with a dentist: A consultation with a dentist is crucial to assess candidacy, discuss treatment goals, and determine the most appropriate course of action for achieving the desired smile enhancements.

The Porcelain Veneer Procedure

The first step in getting our porcelain veneers in Beverly Hills is to shave down the front upper and lower teeth so that the veneers can be fitted over them and the teeth can support them. Next, a mold of the teeth is taken to get accurate impressions.

These are used to create temporary veneers, which will last for about one week while the porcelain veneers are being created in the lab.

These temporaries will need to be shaved down as well.

No glue is used to adhere these, but when the porcelain veneers are placed, they will be cemented onto the teeth with a durable glue. When the porcelain veneers are placed, one tooth is done at a time for a perfect fit. The shape will be the same shape as the natural teeth; they will just look better.

You will be able to eat two hours after your porcelain veneers are placed. Do not bite into anything hard with your veneers. The average amount of time it takes for patients to get used to their porcelain veneers is two weeks. A common side effect is tooth sensitivity, but this is temporary and can be managed with toothpaste that is designed for sensitive teeth.

No. We ensure that your new teeth will look natural and in balance with your other features. With advancements in technology combined with the skilled expertise of our specialists, your smile will look beautifully natural.

Do I have to get veneers for all my teeth?

If you have a problem with just one tooth, you can get a custom veneer for only that one. Whether you need a few or your entire mouth, we can help.

Does it hurt to get veneers?

Although getting veneers is fairly painless (a local anesthetic is used), some patients do experience some sensitivity as your teeth are prepared. If you have any concerns about discomfort, we encourage you to bring up your questions during the consultation.

How long do veneers last?

Porcelain veneers can last for decades if you maintain good oral hygiene and go to the dentist regularly. Although porcelain can shatter with excessive pressure, they are durable, stain resistant, and won’t crack or chip.

What Dr. Maddahi Looks for in a Smile

Have you ever looked in the mirror and felt that something just wasn’t quite right about your teeth or your smile? Many people are aware that something could be improved about their smile, but they can’t quite put their finger on it.

Learn more about what Beverly Hills dentist Dr. Maddahi looks for in a smile in this exclusive online interview. As a trained expert, Dr. Maddahi knows exactly what to look for — and some of the things he finds may surprise you.

For example, many of Dr. Maddahi’s patients have found that the application of dental veneers has given them more than just beautiful white teeth: the veneers tighten the skin, lips, and muscles that make up their smile as well. It’s like a “dental facelift”. Dr. Maddahi explains that this is because as we age, our teeth begin to wear away. They are ground down and can start to crowd together. Our teeth are the structure that sits beneath the lips, muscles, and skin. This means that these areas wrinkle or go slack as the support is removed. But by restoring the support with veneers, you can see a significant improvement in your entire smile.

Complimentary Cosmetic Consultation

If you’re considering porcelain veneers, please come in for a consultation with cosmetic dentist Dr. Maddahi at his office in Beverly Hills. Your initial consultation and evaluation will be free, consisting of a 41-point comprehensive exam that includes everything from looking at your teeth and gums to your bite and the way your whole mouth looks and functions as a whole. Before we plan your dental veneers, we want to know everything about the health and aesthetics of your smile — and most importantly, what you want to achieve so that we can help you get there.

(NOTE: There may be a charge if x-rays are necessary. We encourage our patients to bring x-rays to their first visit if they have had them taken recently.)
