Smile Design is a phrase used to describe all the services Dr. Dhaliwal can use to bring out the best in your smile. It could include veneers, crowns, Invisalign, teeth whitening or a combination of these services. Once Dr. Dhaliwal evaluates your smile, he can let you know exactly what’s involved.

Dr. Dhaliwal always uses the latest technology in his office. We can now offer Complimentary Virtual Consultation at no cost to you. All you have to do is upload your smile pictures and tell us what you’d like to change. Dr. Dhaliwal will review your case and send you a video customized to your situation with pricing and how long it will take to achieve the best results.

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells customized for each tooth and permanently bonded to the teeth’s front surface to improve their appearance. Veneers are used to change the shape, color, size of teeth without the need for braces and without waiting a year or more to see results.

The final cost will depend on what’s involved with your specific case. We charge $1,800 per tooth and generally recommend 8-10 veneers on your upper teeth to fully customize your smile for the most transformative outcome. Once Dr. Dhaliwal reviews your case, he can provide pricing specific to your case. The best way to understand your costs is to submit a Complimentary Virtual Consultation request.

Dr. Dhaliwal stands behind all of his dentistry. You can expect veneers to last up to 15 years.

Again, depending on what Dr. Dhaliwal recommends for you, the timeline can vary. For veneers, the process takes 2 visits and 3-4 weeks total time.

You may feel some soreness or sensitivity for a day or 2 which can be resolved with Tylenol or Motrin.

There is no real downtime for veneers. You will be numbed for the procedure and be able to return to work the same day or the next day, if you choose to have sedation.

Dr. Dhaliwal uses lasers to contour the gums and bring them in proportion to your smile.
