A very natural radiant smile can dramatically improve one’s confidence. Having beautiful teeth that are straight is like having a new smile that can make a person look younger and healthier. A big boost in your self -confidence.
We offer a complimentary first-time visit to our Austin Cosmetic office in downtown Austin. Dr. Tejas Patel will work closely with you to determine if Veneer treatment is the right choice for you. Not all patients are good candidates for veneers. There are many options to achieve the same goal – to have a radiant smile. The process in Veneers is the tooth enamel must be removed in order to apply the sculpted veneer to your tooth. This treatment cannot be reversed. Veneers can be a great option for some patients, but not all. If you clench or grind your teeth, we will recommend other options because it can cause them to chip and break.
On your complimentary first time visit, Dr. Tejas Patel, DDS, could possibly recommend other options if your teeth are unhealthy. If you have tooth decay or gum disease, we would probably recommend either treat these issues or recommend a different solution entirely. How Veneers are applied is our team will remove all plaque from the teeth first. This would include tartar prior to the application of your new veneers.
Veneers are perfect when you have:
- Gaps betwen your teeth
- Short teeth or a Gummy smile
