Dental Veneers!! How do I know if I am a candidate?

What Are Dental Veneers?


Smile makeovers are an amazing way to improve your smile.  This procedure has various components to it.  Orthodontics or dental braces, Invisalign, dental crowns, dental veneers, dental bridges, and teeth whitening are all essential components of a smile makeover. 

Dental veneers are made of porcelain and are placed on teeth for an aesthetic result.  The dental veneers can change the shape, color, and position of the teeth.  The preparation of dental veneers is very precise procedure require multiple appointments. 

Your general dentist makes the initial model at the dental consultation appointment and analyzes it and creates a working model of the ideal smile you desire to achieve.  The next appointment you will have a chance to go over the dental model with your family dentist and make changes as desired.  At that appointment your teeth are minimally prepared to receive the veneers.  Your will receive temporary dental veneers which enables the patient to look at them and make changes as needed.  At further appointments dental veneers are bonded in place and you have your perfect smile.

It is recommended to have a dental night guard after an aesthetic smile make over with dental veneers to protect them from de-bonding and breakage.  Dental veneers do need to be replaced if they break because they are very thin shells of porcelain.  There have been a lot of advances made in fabrication of dental porcelain veneers.  However, there are limitations as to who is eligible for a smile makeover with only dental veneers. 

Extensive dental procedures like smile makeovers can often cause dental anxiety.  At Carrollton Smiles, Dr. Sirisha Bhandaru, is sympathetic to anxious dental patients and offers oral conscious sedation and Nitrous Oxide also called laughing gas.  Dr. Bhandaru knows that smile makeovers can be a costly procedure.
