If the bite alignment is incorrect then the patient can end up gradually wearing down the teeth and start having issues with pain in the TMJ or the Temporomandibular Joint.

No Prep Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are attached to the front surface of the teeth to help improve their shape or color, or to cover chipped or pitted teeth. They can also be used to straighten mildly crooked teeth or close gaps between teeth. They are a fast and long lasting solution and with proper care they can last a lifetime and do not require replacement.
Dr. Vikas Goud has used No Prep Veneers to bring back the smiles on many patients. He uses the highest grade porcelain for his veneers because of its superior aesthetics strength. Majority of veneer placements are completed in just two visits.
No Preparation Veneers
Strong porcelains have enabled dentists to use ultrathin veneers that require little to no tooth preparation, eliminating the need for shaving down the tooth enamel. Dr. Vikas Goud prefers to provide No-Prep Veneers as they are healthier for patients’ teeth and there is no risk for loss of tooth structure. The veneers can even be removed if the patient ever decides to do so.
State-of-The Art Technology
The success of modern dentistry among ot her factors also revolves around the images that are obtained. Dr. Vikas Goud uses digital x-rays, panoramic x-rays and, if required, 3D x- rays with dental CT scanner. Panoramic x- rays provide a broad view of the teeth and the mouth and 3D x- rays give a three dimensional 360 degree view of the teeth and mouth. He uses 3D x-rays for implant placement procedures.
The use of laser beams has also been of added advantage in modern dentistry. The narrow, precise beam cuts soft or hard tissues without any adverse effect to the surrounding tissues. It also cauterizes as it cuts, eliminating bleeding and calming down any swelling.
Dr. Vikas Goud utilizes a water-based laser for his procedures, during crown preparation for the final shaping of the tooth and for implant placements. He also uses it in gum disease treatment to remove bacteria and cauterize the gum tissue. The laser emits a stream of water at the same time as the beam of light such that the area being treated is automatically cooled.
