What is a Dental Veneer?
Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells. These shells are custom-made to cover and correct imperfections in your smile by enhancing the shape, spacing, and color of your teeth.
How is a Dental Veneer Used?
We may provide veneers for patients with large gaps between their teeth, chipped or worn teeth, stained teeth, or crooked or misshapen teeth. Veneers have great longevity, allowing you to enjoy a picture-perfect smile for years to come. In some cases, veneers have been known to last for decades! Dr. Layth frequently recommends porcelain fused to zirconia veneers, as the color, translucent, and durability of porcelain closely mimics that of your natural tooth enamel and the zirconia adds strengths, so they last forever.
The Consultation Visit:
During the first consultation visit we show our patients exactly what dental veneers are, and our previous work and smile gallery that we have in office. We document all out cases in a catalog to share our work with our future patients and show them how we can transfer their smiles as well.
During the first visit we will take intraoral scans and pictures and design your smile prior to starting procedure, we are able to show you exactly what your new smile would look like. During this visit, we also will take all the needed impressions to be able to create your temporaries and also use it to make the necessary calculations to deliver the most enhanced and perfect smile. During this visit, our office will also discuss the finances necessary to undergo the necessary cosmetic changed and create a plan that is interest-free that will help you acquire the smile you have dreamed of without costing you an arm and a leg.
Why Choose us to do your veneers?
Sure Dr. Layth has 39 years of experience in enhancing smiles and delivering absolute perfect smiles, but what stand us out the most is our technology using intraoral scans, in-office smile design prior to procedure, and by end of 2017 we will be the first dental office in the DMV area that will be using 3-D printers to print out the templates and place it on your current teeth so you are capable of seeing exactly what the end result will look like prior to you starting procedure.
The most recent addition to our practice is our smile design software without supercomputer that utilizes extremely high graphic cards. Ali Who is the son of Dr. Layth has built this computer and integrated it with our in-office mil and 3-D printer is game-changing in the cosmetic dentistry field. Please ask to see it, he is very proud of it!
This is gameday where we get the opportunity and privilege to give you a smile you never dreamed of. Based on how many veneers you will be getting done; the procedure can take from 1 hour to 6 hours for full-mouth restorations. You get to enjoy listening to whatever music you desire or watch TV, and you get breaks every few minutes. As long as you are comfortable, we are happy, which enables us to achieve amazing results. The templates will be made till the final work is ready for delivery usually after 2-weeks.
How Do We Make the Veneer?
These are custom-made veneers that we get to wax-up our selves and add layer by layer and stain them in a way that they look phenomenal. Then your veneers get shipped to a lab in California that is famous for their cosmetic work for celebrities. They do the final polishing and place them in a furnace so the veneers harden and then ship back to us for delivery.
This is the day you get to walk out of the office with the proud smile you have always wanted. What prides us the most is that we have NEVER had an unsatisfied patient, and a majority of patients refer all their loved ones back to our practice for work as well.
