Porcelain Veneers

What Are Porcelain Veneers

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that can be used to cover inperfections in your smile. If you’re unhappy with the way that your teeth look, or if you’ve wanted to make a dramatic change to your appearance, veneers may be right for you. These porcelain veneers are easy to place, and are customized to each patient. They can last for about a decade before you may need to have them replaced.

Why are Porcelain Veneers needed?

Porcelain veneers are ideal for most healthy adult patients. They can be useful when you are looking for a quick and efficient way to transform your smile. Some of the problems that veneers can cover include:

  • Stains and deep discoloration
  • Chipped and cracked teeth
  • Spaces and gaps
  • Uneven, unsightly teeth

Who is a good candidate for Porcelain Veneers?

To determine if you would benefit from veneers, we will perform an examination. This will give us an idea of whether or not veneers are right for your smile. If your front teeth are decayed, or need additional work, we’ll recommend treatment before any type of veneer is placed. Most healthy adult patients who want veneers can easily have the procedure done in our office.

What happens during the procedure for Porcelain Veneers?

We start by filing down the front teeth to make room for the new veneers. Impressions are then used to make your actual veneers. The veneers themselves are placed at your next appointment. We will adjust the way that the veneers fit and feel so that they’re comfortable for you. You will be shocked at how dramatic the change is when you have veneers in place! Veneers typically do not require any special care or treatment. We can check on them at every one of your checkup appointments to ensure they are still intact, and are free of any damage or cracks. Most porcelain veneers can last for about a decade before replacement is recommended.

If you think you might need or want veneers, call us today and we will be happy to get you in for an appointment.

Amin Salvi Dental
Is Now Open!

The last few months have been challenging for all of us. We have missed seeing you, chatting with you, sharing stories with you and laughing with you. We are SO excited to finally be able to invite you back to our office!

As you already know, Amin Salvi Dental does not cut corners on safety and technology. We have always prided ourselves in exceeding the recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for infection control measures. During this closure, we decided to go above and beyond that by adding further safety measures, which have been outlined below. The comfort and safety of our patients, of our team members, and of our own families remain our top priority.

  • All essential paperwork (including a COVID-19 screening form) along with financial agreements are to be done prior to your appointment. We will be texting and emailing the links for the forms to be filled out at home or on your mobile device. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or feel ill, please reschedule your appointment and call your physician.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in the car and text or call the office. We will inform you when to enter the office so we can maintain social distancing protocols
  • When entering the office, it is mandatory to wear a mask or face covering. Although county guidelines are not as strict, we maintain this requirement for the safety of everyone. Due to a worldwide shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we cannot provide masks. Should you require one, we will charge you $1 for the mask.
  • Patients must arrive to their appointment alone without family/friends. A single guardian will be allowed for minors, elderly and those with special needs or requirements.
  • We will be taking your temperature when arriving to our office and recording this in your records.

Here are a few additional things we are doing to keep everyone safe and healthy:

  • We have installed air purification systems in the main operatories
  • We have installed sneeze guards at the check-in and check-out areas. We request that when you are required to talk to the front desk administration, you stand behind those.
  • Before appointments, we will use a medical peroxide pre-rinse which has been proven to help kill virus particles

We will have new scheduling guidelines

You will be hearing from us shortly as we are rescheduling routine hygiene and treatment for everyone. As you can imagine, we have a large backlog of cancelled appointments so we appreciate your patience through this process.

If you have any immediate concerns, we request not to call the office but text us at the office number or email us at office.corona@aminsalvidental.com.

Due to the new protocols for physical distancing in the office, we may have limited availability of appointments. Due to this we require a minimum 48 hour notice to cancel or reschedule your appointment to avoid a cancellation fee. This allows other patients, who have been waiting, to be seen. Please be courteous to others.

For many procedures we will also be requiring a reservation fee in advance. This fee will be applied to your deductible or co-pay for the treatment and is not an additional fee of any kind.

We look forward to seeing all of you and catching up on the activities you have been doing to keep busy during this downtime!
