Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
- Posted on: Nov 27 2010
Porcelain veneers are a relatively new approach to cosmetic dentistry. They can be used to correct a number of cosmetic issues with the teeth. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area cosmetic dentist Lindsey Marshall, DMD uses porcelain veneers to give her patients the bright, perfect smiles they’ve always wanted. Who Is a Good Candidate for Porcelain Veneers? Almost anyone who wishes their smile to look better is a candidate for treatment with porcelain veneers. Issues that can be effectively treated with veneers include :
- Discoloration, especially staining that is part of the tooth material itself
- Small gaps between the teeth
- Minor misalignments
Porcelain veneers do require some special treatment in order to maintain them over a long period of time. This special treatment is not difficult, and following Dr. Marshall’s instructions regarding care of your porcelain veneers will help them last longer. Advantages of Porcelain Veneers The versatility of porcelain veneers makes them an effective and affordable choice for many cosmetic dentistry issues that previously could only be treated with orthodontic procedures or expensive dental crowns. Carefully constructed porcelain veneers can make slightly misaligned teeth look straighter and fill in minor gaps without actually changing the position of the teeth. They can also give discolored teeth a bright, natural look without drastically restructuring the existing tooth as is necessary for dental crowns. If you live in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area and would like to know more about porcelain veneers and how they can help you, please contact the offices of Lindsey Marshall, DMD. Dr. Marshall can provide an initial consultation to help you decide if porcelain veneers are right for you.
