Get the Smile of Your Dreams
Do you ever wish you could have a perfect smile? Dental veneers can completely change the appearance of your teeth to give you a beautiful smile. In fact, many celebrities entrust their smiles to veneers.
In one easy treatment, veneers can change your life by correcting multiple issues. Say good-bye to uneven teeth, small gaps, or discoloration, and say hello to a smile you love to show off.
The Veneers Process
The veneers process usually takes two appointments to complete.
Step 1: Consultation
At your first appointment, you’ll meet with Dr. Lavi. He’ll determine if veneers are the right smile solution for you, and let you know if there are any other suitable options. If you agree on veneers as your treatment, he can begin the process.
Dr. Lavi will prepare your teeth by taking off a very small portion of the necessary teeth. This is done so your veneers will look natural when they’re attached. To begin the creation of your veneers, Dr. Lavi will then take an impression of your teeth to send to the laboratory.
Step 2: Your Finished Smile
Once your veneers have been created, we’ll call you to come back to the office. Dr. Lavi will make sure your veneers fit correctly and are the correct color, then securely place them on your teeth. Your smile will be immediately complete.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are veneers permanent?
Veneers aren’t completely permanent because they’ll eventually have to be replaced. They will last for a long time, though. You can ensure your veneers last as long as possible by following proper oral care techniques.
To properly care for your veneers, brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and visit Dr. Lavi for regular check-ups and cleanings. You’ll also want to avoid habits that are harmful to your teeth, such as chewing on ice and opening packages with your teeth.
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
No, veneers don’t ruin your teeth. Though we’ll remove a small portion of your enamel so the veneers can be attached and look natural, this won’t put your teeth at risk. As long as you take proper care of your teeth when you have veneers, your teeth can remain healthy.
Veneers can be a great solution for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth in one simple treatment. They can solve a variety of issues and help you feel confident in your smile.
Can veneers fall off?
Yes, veneers can fall off. They don’t fall off very easily, though. Most veneers last for around 10 years before they have to be replaced. As long as you take good care of your teeth, your veneers are likely to last for a long amount of time.
To care for your veneers, simply care for your teeth well by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting Dr. Lavi for regular checkups. Your teeth are more likely to stay healthy and beautiful if you focus on daily care.
Are veneers painful?
No, veneers aren’t painful. Dr. Lavi will make sure you’re comfortable throughout the process. After your veneers are placed, you may experience some discomfort as you get used to them. This is normal, and the feeling usually goes away quickly.
After this stage, your veneers start to feel like a natural part of your mouth. It normally takes about two weeks for most people to get used to their veneers.
