Gum Contouring

Uneven gum recession caused by periodontal diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis can affect your smile’s aesthetics, making some teeth appear too long or short. Gum contouring, performed by Dr. Kathy Zahedi DDS & Associates, addresses this issue, creating a harmonious look for your gums and teeth.


Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted from dental-grade porcelain, designed to cover the front surface of teeth. They improve the appearance of teeth affected by discoloration, minor misalignment, gaps, or damage.

The process involves removing a small amount of enamel, taking impressions, and creating custom veneers in a lab. The veneers are then bonded to the teeth with strong adhesive. Known for their durability, stain resistance, and natural look, porcelain veneers enhance the overall appearance of a smile.

Porcelain veneers address various smile concerns:

  • Discoloration: Veneers keep your smile bright and white.
  • Chips and cracks: These imperfections are hidden, creating a smooth look.
  • Uneven shape or size: Veneers reshape and resize teeth for uniformity.
  • Gaps: Small gaps vanish, creating a more symmetrical smile.
  • Mild misalignment: Veneers can subtly improve minor misalignment.

Note that enamel removal is necessary, making the procedure irreversible. Consult Dr. Kathy Zahedi DDS & Associates to determine if veneers are right for you.

Getting porcelain veneers involves two appointments, both crucial for your perfect smile.

At the first visit, we numb your teeth for comfort, prepare them, and take impressions for the dental lab. While your final veneers are made (about two weeks), you’ll wear temporary acrylic veneers.

The second appointment ensures the veneers fit perfectly and look good. Once approved, we bond them to your teeth. No numbing is needed, and you can eat and drink right away. We ensure you’re happy with your natural-looking new smile.

Experience the transformation with Dr. Kathy Zahedi DDS & Associates. Your journey to a beautiful smile starts now!
