Frequently Asked Questions:

Am I a candidate for cosmetic dentistry?

You may be a candidate for cosmetic dentistry if you have healthy teeth with imperfections affecting their size, shape, color, alignment, or spacing. In some cases, cosmetic dentistry can also be used to restore damaged or decayed teeth to improve their appearance. However, it is important to note that cosmetic dentistry will not change your entire appearance and is instead used to make your teeth complement the rest of your face. To determine if cosmetic dentistry is right for you, schedule a consultation with one of our dentists at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry today.

What can I expect during a cosmetic dental appointment at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry?

During your cosmetic dental appointment at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry, you can expect to discuss your concerns with one of our dentists. They will then perform an oral examination, as well as possible dental x-rays, to determine an appropriate treatment. They will then discuss their recommendations with you and answer any questions you may have. Your exact expectations can vary depending on the type of treatment being recommended.

What can I expect after receiving cosmetic dental treatment?

After receiving cosmetic dental treatment, you may receive special guidelines to follow for a certain amount of time. As mentioned before, these guidelines will depend on the type of treatment being performed and some types of treatment may require more post treatment care than others. Your dentist will discuss aftercare with you to help you decide on the right treatment.

How Long Do Cosmetic Dental Treatments Last?

Frequently Asked Questions:

Am I a candidate for veneers?

You may be a candidate for veneers if you have generally healthy teeth and are looking for a way to improve their appearance by correcting imperfections such as:

  • Chipped, cracked, or worn teeth
  • Stained teeth that don’t respond to whitening treatments
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Crooked teeth

To determine if you are an ideal candidate for veneers, schedule a consultation with one of our cosmetic dentists at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry today.

What can I expect when having veneers placed at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry?

When having dental veneers placed at Jowett & Lewis Family Dentistry, you can expect a series of steps over at least two visits. First, your cosmetic dentist will give you a thorough examination to determine if you are a candidate for veneers and make sure there aren’t any complicating factors. At this point, they may perform some additional dental work to prepare your teeth for veneers, such as filling in cavities.

Once your dentist has determined that you are an ideal candidate for veneers, they will need to prepare your teeth. This is accomplished by removing a thin layer of enamel so that they veneer can be applied without looking bulky or affecting your bite. This process will be repeated on every tooth that is being restored with veneers. After the teeth have been prepared, then your dentist will take a dental impression of your mouth that a dental lab will use to fabricate your veneers.

You’ll then need to return for a second appointment once your veneers have been completed. During this second appointment, you’ll have them fitted and bonded to your teeth. While veneers can generally be placed over the course of two appointments, it can take more appointments if multiple dental procedures are required to prepare the teeth for veneers.

What can I expect after having dental veneers placed?

After having veneers placed, you can immediately return to your usual routine and oral hygiene practices. However, you may experience some minor tooth sensitivity in between the first and second appointments as a result of the enamel being removed. This will usually fade once the permanent veneers have been applied and the teeth have adapted.

What are Dental Veneers Made Of?

Veneers are typically made of porcelain or composite resin, offering a natural look that mimics the appearance of your natural teeth.

How Long Do Veneers Last?

With proper care, veneers can last for many years, often up to a decade or more, depending on the material and your oral hygiene practices.

Are Veneers Right for Everyone?

Veneers are a great option for many, but not suitable for everyone. Factors like the condition of your natural teeth and overall oral health will determine if veneers are the best option for you.
