Dental Veneers Before and After

Before & After Pictures Dental Veneers

In this case, we tailored dental veneers to seamlessly close spaces and align the teeth, achieving the ideal dental architecture. The patient presented with a prominent front tooth and irregular spacing, expressing a desire for a fuller smile that appeared natural and not overly white or synthetic. A key aspect of her request was a smile that would reveal less of the gums.
The process began with meticulous gum treatment to establish a healthy foundation. In just two appointments, we expertly positioned the smile line dental veneers, customizing them with intricate internal coloring. This technique ensured that the veneers would capture and reflect light in a way that mimics natural tooth enamel. To perfect the aesthetic, we applied a final layer of translucent porcelain, enhancing the natural appeal and delivering a stunning yet understated transformation.
The outcome was a harmonious smile that not only aligned with the patient’s vision but also complemented her overall facial symmetry. The strategic use of porcelain layers provided a lustrous finish, giving her the confidence to share her smile with the world.

The patient expressed unhappiness with her smile, troubled by gaps where food would become trapped, and dental bondings that had broken at the tooth edges. She aspired to a fuller and slightly whiter smile, with a specific request for translucency in her new veneers. Importantly, she wanted to avoid having her teeth significantly shaved down.
To meet her needs, ultra-thin dental veneers were the chosen solution. These require the removal of just 0.3 millimeters of the tooth surface – roughly the thickness of a contact lens – ensuring no sensitivity and eliminating the need for temporary coverings.
The entire process was scheduled over two visits, each lasting around 3 hours. Understanding the patient’s dental phobia and sensitivity to drill noise, we conducted the treatment under IV sedation to ensure her comfort throughout the procedure.
The result was a custom-designed smile with a very light white hue, delivering the fullness and translucency the patient desired. She was extremely pleased with the final appearance, including the shape, color, and functionality of her ultra-thin dental veneers, which brought her the confidence she sought in her smile.

The patient came to us with uneven spaces and chipped edges on their front teeth, which made smiling a self-conscious act. They were quite fond of the natural color of their teeth and emphasized the importance of maintaining this original shade while closing the gaps.
Following the removal of root cavities, we set out to transform the patient’s smile with customized dental veneers. This was accomplished in two visits. Our approach was ultra-conservative, preserving the natural structure of the teeth, which meant no need for temporaries, no discomfort for the patient, and a complete smile makeover within just a week.
We chose feldspathic porcelain for its exceptional quality and ability to match the natural translucency and color of the patient’s teeth. Additionally, we adjusted the patient’s bite to prevent future chipping, a result of clenching and grinding. To further protect against these issues, we also crafted a night guard.
The patient was delighted with the ultra-thin veneers, noting the enhanced aesthetics, form, and function of their new smile. The treatment not only addressed the immediate concerns but also provided a long-term solution to ensure the endurance and beauty of their smile.
Porcelain Veneers Before and After - Acidic Teeth Fixed by Dental Veneers in Los Angeles
The patient’s dental history included challenges with acid reflux, which led to exposed dentin and subsequently, thin and fragile teeth prone to fracturing and chipping.
Aiming for slightly longer front teeth, the patient had previously attempted dental bonding, but found it insufficient due to the material’s lack of durability. Crowns were considered, but the idea of significantly reducing her tooth structure was not appealing, especially at the young age of 24. She was looking for a conservative treatment option, which was further necessitated by the presence of decay between her front teeth.
After a thorough consultation, the patient decided on dental veneers, particularly due to Dr. Anthony Mobasser’s specialized protocol for bonding to both enamel and dentin.
The smile line veneers were created over two visits involving minimal preparation—just 0.3 to 0.5 millimeters—and shaping of the teeth. This precise approach meant that no temporaries were needed. Typically, temporaries are used when substantial tooth structure is removed to prevent sensitivity, but they can lead to gum inflammation and bleeding if worn for an extended period, which is not ideal for placing new veneers.
In this instance, the teeth were left feeling a little rough during the interim, which actually improved the shape and allowed the patient to maintain excellent oral hygiene. Since the gums often react negatively to temporaries, not using them prevented any potential inflammation or bleeding, facilitating the smooth bonding of the ultra-thin veneers.
With no temporaries required and a trouble-free bonding process, the patient received veneers expected to last for over 20 years, providing a durable, long-term solution for a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing smile.

The patient’s chief complaint centered around dissatisfaction with their smile, specifically a gummy appearance, worn teeth, discolored old dental bonding, and multiple cavities with visible fracture lines on the front teeth. Additionally, the teeth felt weak, which was exacerbated by acid reflux. The patient’s goal was to achieve a fuller, whiter, natural-looking smile that would instill confidence.
Our approach began with gum treatment to address the gummy smile and create a strong foundation for further restorative work. We then carefully excavated the cavities and replaced the old, discolored bonding. The preparation for the dental veneers was completed in a single visit, lasting approximately 2 to 3 hours, during which impressions were taken. We opted for ultra-thin veneers, which eliminated the need for temporary coverings. This choice allowed the patient to maintain optimal gum health in preparation for the final bonding stage.
At the subsequent visit, the patient experienced no sensitivity or discomfort. The ultra-thin veneers were fitted for approval, and after patient consent, all teeth were sterilized. The veneers were then bonded to the teeth following a specific protocol designed by Dr. Anthony Mobasser to ensure longevity. The bonding process, including final adjustments and polishing, took about 4 hours.
The result was a transformative smile that exuded a million-dollar quality. The patient was thrilled with the final outcome, which not only met but exceeded expectations, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.

This patient had severe crowding of the lower teeth, also discolored, that were transformed to a natural looking state via porcelain veneers. Techniques to improve this smile also included instant orthodontics done in seven days. Compare this treatment to full orthodontic teeth movement, which would take a minimum of three years. Besides severe teeth crowding, this patient needed to change the color of his teeth, which was performed via bleaching and porcelain veneers.
