Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

Haider Family Dentistry

What's involved in a smile makeover?

Your smile makeover begins with a one-on-one consultation. Dr. Haider learns about your aesthetic goals and explains your cosmetic dentistry options. To achieve the best results, he will evaluate:

  • Teeth color, alignment, and size
  • Gum tissue size and shape
  • Skin tone
  • Face shape
  • Hair color

Then, it will be time to review your options for a smile transformation. Dr. Haider makes client education a priority and works closely with you to determine a satisfying makeover treatment plan.

What can a cosmetic dentist do for my smile?

Dr. Haider is committed to creating beautiful smiles. Cosmetic dentistry procedures at Haider Family Dentistry include teeth whitening and crowns. Veneers, however, may be the most effective step in your smile transformation as they can whiten discolored teeth and offer corrections for imperfections, such as small teeth, cracks, or irregular spaces.

Dr. Haider works with you to determine the best course of action for your needs, diligently explaining the pros and cons of each approach.

What are veneers?

Veneers help re-create the appearance of your natural teeth with a thin layer of porcelain. Dr. Haider custom-fits each veneer to the individual teeth in your mouth, then bonds the veneers to your existing teeth. Veneers cover up imperfections such as misshapen teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps. They can also restore delicate teeth.

Although veneers can be made out of resin composite materials, porcelain is the most stain-resistant material. Porcelain also tends to match your natural enamel better. Dr. Haider reviews your options and recommends the best type of veneers for your specific needs.

What are the advantages of dental veneers?

Veneers are a natural-looking means to correct misshapen, cracked, or crooked teeth. Also, they provide the following benefits:

  • Stain resistance
  • Well-tolerated by your gums
  • Ability to lighten darker teeth, so they appear whiter
  • Look great with no invasive dental work
  • Strengthen teeth
  • More cost-effective than other dental solutions like crowns

Veneers can offer a whitening solution to teeth that are resistant to traditional whitening procedures. These include teeth that were damaged by trauma or certain medications.
