- Posted on: Nov 15 2018
Ardmore, PA area patients seeking restorative procedures for covering imperfections of the smile are welcome to book a consultation visit with Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall to discuss their options. In most cases, when patients have problems with the anterior (front) teeth, they may want to ask about solutions such as porcelain veneers.
Understanding porcelain veneers
Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall is a dentist who highly recommends porcelain veneers for patients seeking a cosmetic treatment for improving the front of the smile. The “social six” are the six most visible teeth in the smile when patients grin, laugh, or speak with others. These are the most present teeth and may benefit most from the placement of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin facings fabricated from ceramic that are bonded onto the front of a tooth to change the appearance. Veneers can be used on teeth that are:
- Permanently stained
These restorations are custom-made for a patient to match the existing teeth, ensuring seamless integration into the smile. Veneers are highly desirable because they have several benefits. Porcelain veneers are:
- Simple to care for
How are veneers placed?
First, patients visit with Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall for a consultation appointment to find out if they are an appropriate candidate for veneers. Second, the smile is prepared, which may include filing down a thin portion of the enamel on the front of the tooth. Third, impressions are made and mailed to a laboratory so a ceramist can fabricate the veneer and mail it back. Fourth, patients return to the office to have their final restoration bonded into place within their smile.
