During the consultation process, Dr. Khan will review your personal cosmetic goals and recommend a treatment plan that can address your needs. Decisions such as the type of veneers, number of veneers, and veneer placement can all significantly impact the final results. Dr. Khan can use his expertise to guide you through these decisions and ultimately create a beautiful, youthful, healthy-looking smile.
What are Veneers?
Porcelain dental veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are placed over a damaged, misaligned, or stained tooth to conceal cosmetic issues and create a new appearance. Treatment with porcelain dental veneers begins with an impression made from your teeth. This impression will allow porcelain veneers to be custom-made for the affected teeth, ensuring a comfortable fit. After the veneer is designed, it is color-tinted to match the surrounding teeth, or to your aesthetic preference, and attached to the tooth with a durable cement. Depending upon the type of veneer you choose, you may be given temporary veneers while you wait approximately 7-10 days for the permanent veneers to be returned from the ceramist. The damaged tooth can then be concealed with a healthy-looking porcelain veneer and a rejuvenated appearance.
Dr. Hidayathulla Khan uses his experience, as well as his aesthetic sensibilities, to design veneers that look both beautiful and natural. The color of porcelain veneers will not change over time, so your teeth can remain bright and vibrant. When properly cared for, porcelain veneers often last for decades and keep your smile looking youthful. Practicing good daily oral hygiene and scheduling routine oral exams is the best way to maintain your results. Patients who frequently clench their jaw or grind their teeth at night may consider a small oral appliance to protect the veneers during sleep.
Porcelain dental veneers can be an excellent way of addressing common problems with your teeth and creating a beautiful new smile with results that look and feel natural. If you have more questions feel free to contact us.
Cost of Veneers
Since each porcelain veneers procedure is customized to meet the unique needs of the patient, the price will vary from case to case. The final cost is calculated using a number of variables, including the number of veneers, type of veneers, and veneer placement. During the consultation process, Dr. Hidayathulla Khan will perform an oral exam, discuss your cosmetic goals, design a custom treatment plan, and provide you with a precise quote for the procedure. Good candidates for porcelain veneers have healthy teeth and gums, and Dr. Khan may recommend a procedure to improve dental health beforehand if necessary.
