Porcelain Veneers in Glendale, CA
Beautiful, minimal-prep veneers to enhance your smile
Veneers are very thin porcelain covers that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to repair cosmetic flaws. They look natural and are an easy, painless way to refresh your smile. The average lifespan of porcelain veneers is about 10 years, and with proper care, they can last even longer.
With recent advancements in dentistry, veneers can be adhered with minimal or no preparation to the natural tooth.

How we create your beautiful new smile
The first step is a consultation with Dr. Meserkhani. You and he will discuss your goals for your smile and review options. He will then conduct a thorough oral examination and digital X-rays and impressions will be taken.
Three-dimensional study models
The impressions are used to create a study model, a three-dimensional model of your mouth that is used to preview the proposed changes to your smile. Dr. Meserkhani has placed thousands of veneers and draws upon this experience to carefully design the shape and size of your veneers, so that they rejuvenate your smile while complementing your natural teeth.
Creating a precisely matched custom shade
Dr. Meserkhani works closely with our in-house lab to create a custom shade that works beautifully for your smile. Our lab uses materials such as Feldspathic porcelain, which has a translucency that closely matches that of real teeth.
Before and Afters
Dr. Meserkhani recommends veneers as the solution for correcting minor aesthetic flaws because they are both durable and resistant to stains. However, in some cases, a quick, inexpensive alternative is dental bonding.
Dental bonding is the application of composite tooth-colored resin to the surface of the flawed tooth. The resin is hardened with a UV light and then carefully sculpted to complement your natural teeth. Although dental bonding is an affordable option, it is not stain-resistant or as strong as a veneer.
Dental bonding needs to be reapplied over time, and the additional shaving of the tooth surface can weaken a tooth, making this a short-term solution for correcting flaws.
