What are veneers?
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain used to recreate an improved natural look of teeth. Aside from the cosmetic benefits, they provide more strength compared to the natural tooth enamel. Veneers are also custom made to bond to the original teeth of the patient. There are different materials used to create veneers, such as the popular porcelain veneers, lumineers, and composite resin veneers.
The only way a patient can fully determine his or her candidacy for veneers is by scheduling an appointment with a skilled cosmetic dentist. After evaluating health history, current dental health, and the condition of a patient's enamel, Dr. Reddy can make an informed decision regarding a patient's suitability for this treatment. He can also recommend alternative treatments for non-qualifying patients.
The right candidates for veneers include people with:
· Stained teeth as a result of medication, root canal treatment, and other consumable substances.
· Teeth that are worn down.
· Chipped or broken teeth.
· Teeth with gaps between them.
