Veneers are custom made thin shell is made out of tooth colored porcelain material placed over a tooth, to improve the aesthetics of stained or dark teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, crooked and crowded teeth as well as unevenly spaced or not the right shape teeth. They can also be used to protect the tooth’s surface from any further damage such as teeth with erosions. Veneers can be used to restore a single tooth that may have fractured or discolored, or to restore a complete group of teeth to improve the entire smile.
Our experienced team of dentists can evaluate your case and advise if you are the right candidate for veneers. After a comprehensive examination of your teeth and the bite situation and in some cases with the help of some additional x-rays, we are able to confirm if veneers are a perfect treatment for you. With the help of study models and diagnostic wax ups, we can demonstrate the case and discuss it with you in advance.
To fabricate a veneer the dentist will prepare the teeth (according to the thickness of the veneer needed, a thin layer of the tooth will be removed) and an impression will be taken. In the Dental Laboratory a dental technician will fabricate the veneers with the highest precession according to the shape and color needed.
After trying the veneers for their fitting and the correct shape and the color, they will be permanently bonded to the teeth with the help of special resin cement. After bonding the veneers, regular check ups and and cleaning of the teeth (at least twice a year) is essential to ensure a long lifetime of the veneers.

I came to Dr. Fadi after having veneers at another clinic. I was suffering for about five years with broken veneers and severe headaches due to my old veneers. My old dentist could not help me and I was getting desperate. When I came to see Dr. Fadi, he spent a lot of time with me to understand my needs and he used modern equipment to study my teeth. He explained to me exactly why I was having headaches from those old veneers and why they kept breaking. He also explained to me why my gums were uncomfortable. The treatment plan made sense to me and I completely understood how everything was going to be handled. When we started the treatment, I could not believe that everything was done within one week. All my headaches and tooth aches are gone. Even after two years, I have not had any problems with any of my veneers, I smile with confidence and I am totally satisfied with everything that was done. Besides all that, my new veneers look amazing. Thank you very much for the personal care and attention to detail.
