Issues Correctable with Dental Veneers
Dental veneers can give you a life-like, beautiful smile that can last up to two decades. They can be used to adjust the shape, size, and color of your teeth, as well as correct minor aesthetic issues. Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena can use them to repair the following conditions.
- Spaces and gaps between teeth
- Chipped, broken, or otherwise damaged teeth
- Old fillings that are now unattractive
- Teeth that are oddly shaped or slightly crooked
- Tooth that appears too small
- Stained, yellow, or discolored teeth
- Teeth that do not respond to whitening treatments
Who needs dental veneers?
Anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their teeth, either for aesthetic or medical reasons such as broken teeth, may benefit from dental veneers. If you have worn, chipped, discolored, or uneven teeth, veneers can help restore your smile. If you have gaps between your teeth, veneers can be used to close the gaps and create a more uniform and aesthetically pleasing smile. Furthermore, veneers can help protect your teeth from further damage or decay allowing you to maintain your oral health.
Ultimately, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, dental veneers may be the right solution for you. They can help transform your smile, giving you a new sense of confidence and self-esteem.
The Process of Getting Your Dental Veneers Applied
Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena ensure that the process of acquiring a stunning set of dental veneers is precise and tailored to the individual. To give you an idea of the dental veneer application process, read on for a brief summary.
The cosmetic procedure starts with a thorough examination of the patient’s teeth. This helps the dentist determine the best way to place the dental veneers. Next, the cosmetic dentist will take an impression of the teeth to create a model of the patient’s mouth. This will be used to craft the dental veneers and ensure they fit perfectly.
Once the veneers are ready, the dentist will perform tooth preparation, such as removing any decay or shaving the enamel, to ensure the dental veneer sits flush with the teeth. The dental veneer is then bonded to the tooth with a special adhesive.
The final step is to check that the veneers look good and that the patient is happy with the veneer placement. The dentist will polish the veneers to ensure a natural, beautiful finish.
With Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena’s expertise and attention to detail, you can be sure that you’ll get the perfect set of veneers.
Models Used for Diagnosis
When designing your brand-new smile, both Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena use diagnostic tools such as study models. These are important for making sure your traditional porcelain veneers fit perfectly and look natural. The models also enable doctors to produce precise restoration.
With the help of these models, doctors can plan your smile with precision and accuracy. This helps guarantee that your porcelain dental veneers are the right size, shape, and color to make your smile appear natural.
The use of study models during the planning stage is a critical part of creating your perfect smile. The models provide the essential information that ensures your veneers fit correctly and look just right.
Matching the Shape and Shade of Your Natural Teeth
Using a shade guide, Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena will assist you in finding the most suitable veneer look. We have a range of styles and shapes for you to pick from that will complement your facial features and reflect your personality.
Once you’ve chosen the style and shape of your veneers, our dentists will use a shade guide to match the hue of your new veneers to your natural teeth. A shade guide is a set of tooth-colored plastic chips that show a variety of color shades, allowing us to find the perfect color for your new smile. We will take into account the size, shape, and color of your existing teeth to guarantee that your veneers are blended in seamlessly. Our goal is to give you a stunning, natural-looking smile that you can be proud of!
Minimal Tooth Alteration for Dental Veneer Procedure
Traditional veneers necessitate preparation, which involves reducing the natural tooth structure to make room for the veneers to be affixed. But Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena have an alternative – Minimal-Prep Veneers – that doesn’t require drastic alteration of the healthy tooth structure. We can fit the veneers rapidly and with no need to remove a large section of the natural tooth.
The Minimal-Prep Veneers are a great option for those who want to benefit from the cosmetic advantages of veneers without compromising the tooth’s health. This process is a much more efficient and time-saving way to have veneers placed.
With this approach, you don’t have to worry about losing a large portion of your tooth structure. We can fit the veneers quickly and without sacrificing any of your natural tooth structure. This minimally-invasive process is a great option for those who want to enhance the aesthetics of their smile without worrying about the health of their teeth.
Temporary Veneers Cover
Dr. Mohan and Dr. Veena offer a way for you to “try on” your new smile – with temporary veneers. Not only does this give you the chance to make sure you like the look of your veneers, but it also allows our dentists to make small adjustments for a more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing fit. It’s a win-win!
Hand Crafted Veneers
Once your veneers have been crafted to your specifications, Dr. Mohan or Dr. Veena will send the information to a reliable dental laboratory. There, expert technicians will create beautiful porcelain veneers that will complement and enhance the appearance of your smile. They will be the perfect match in terms of color, size, and shape.
With this precise attention to detail, you can be sure that the results will be dazzling. The veneers will look and feel so natural, you’ll forget you ever had them. You can trust that you are getting the very best in care, quality, and results.
How long do porcelain veneers last?
Porcelain veneers typically last for between 7 and 15 years, depending on how well they are taken care of. Proper dental hygiene and regular dental visits are essential for maintaining the longevity of porcelain veneers.
Recovery and Post-Procedure Care
Recovery and post-procedure care for porcelain veneers are relatively minimal. Immediately following the procedure, your dentist may recommend a soft diet for the first few days. This will help ensure that your veneers stay secure and help reduce discomfort. It is important to avoid biting down hard on anything, as well as grinding and clenching your teeth.
In the weeks following the procedure, you may experience some sensitivity, especially when drinking or eating hot or cold foods. Your dentist may recommend that you use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth. Additionally, teeth brushing and flossing twice a day are important to maintain good oral health.
Regular dental check-ups are also important to monitor the health of your veneers and ensure that they are in the best condition. During these visits, your dentist will inspect your veneers to make sure they are secure and in good condition. If any of your veneers become damaged, your dentist will be able to replace them.
Do veneers damage your teeth?
In general, veneers do not damage the teeth, but they can cause worn enamel. During the process of attaching the veneers to the front of the teeth, a small amount of the tooth’s natural enamel must be removed in order for the veneers to fit properly. Removing enamel can cause the teeth to become more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.
Also, it is possible for the veneers to chip or breaks if a person bites down hard on something. In some cases, veneers may come loose and need to be re-cemented.
Overall, veneers are a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of teeth. However, it is important to make sure to practice good oral hygiene habits and visit your dentist regularly to ensure the teeth remain healthy.
