What Are Veneers?
Veneers are thin coverings that attach to the surface of your natural teeth. They are usually made of porcelain and have the appearance of a healthy tooth. They can improve the look of teeth that are misformed, broken, or stained.Veneers are strong, comfortable, and natural-looking. We typically use this with a combination of other cosmetic treatments in Smile Makeovers. With proper care, they can last for many years before they need to be replaced. Skilled professionals in dental laboratories make veneers. These professionals use X-Rays and molds from your dentist to craft personalized, natural-looking veneers.
The process of getting veneers begins with a consultation appointment. Dr. Varun Joseph will examine your teeth and ensure that veneers are a good option for you. He will also take X-Rays or impressions, which will help him understand the shape and size of your teeth.
Your consultation appointment is a good time to talk about your desired outcome. You can discuss the shape, size, and shade of veneers that you would like.Before putting in your veneers, Dr. Joseph will reshape your natural teeth by filing down their surface. This way, the veneers will fit in your mouth without looking too big. Once your teeth are filed, cleaned, and polished, Dr. Joseph will use dental cement to attach each veneer. You will need to take about three trips to your dentist from the consultation to the final appointment.
Am I a Good Candidate for Veneers?
Veneers are great for patients who are looking to transform their smiles. Also, if you have teeth that are chipped, broken, or stained, veneers could be a good option for you. Veneers are also good for people who have experienced significant tooth decay or other kinds of dental damage. However, your teeth must be healthy before you get veneers. This means Dr. Joseph will need to treat any decay before fitting you for veneers. With the help of a veneer, you can improve the look and function of a damaged tooth. This will help you eat and speak comfortably and will make your smile look natural and beautiful.
