Veneers have been the latest secret to a Hollywood smile. This area is a particular area of expertise for Dr. Kohani. He has worked with world renowned master ceramists in achieving flawless results and is proficient in this art form.

One of Dr. Kohani’s areas of specialty is the use of porcelain veneers to provide patients with natural-looking, healthy and gorgeous smiles.
Lumineers, DURAthin veneers, and Vivaneers are some of the newest types of no prep veneers. Veneers have become very popular over the last few years due to their ability to quickly repair, brighten and rejuvenate almost anyone’s smile. With their lifelike appearance, durability and resistance to wear and staining, veneers may be the answer for you.
“No-prep” veneers are thin casings cemented to outer surfaces of teeth and can be used to mask chips in teeth and stains as well as breaks. This latest type of veneer requires little or no reduction in the tooth structure.
Lumineers, made by Cerinate, provide outstanding aesthetic results and do not require modifications of the natural tooth. DURAthin veneers also require no alteration of the structure of teeth or removal of enamel. The DURAthin veneer works well for the patient who needs to cover chips in the teeth or gaps between teeth. The Vivaneers veneers are very thin and usually quickly and easily applied in one office visit.
While any of these types of “no-prep” veneers work well to protect damaged teeth or quickly rejuvenate a smile, they cannot repair the underlying dental problems. Still, if you have relatively healthy teeth, these thin shells of porcelain provide a lifelike look that naturally blends with your surrounding teeth.
Dr. Kohani will analyze your teeth and recommend whether broken or chipped teeth be repaired with bonding, “no-prep” veneers or by another means. Usually, for patients with relatively healthy teeth, the veneers are perfect for providing a boost of confidence and self-esteem.
