Enhance the appearance of your smile and cover imperfections with porcelain veneers!
- Posted on: May 15 2019
At the practice of Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall in Ardmore, PA, patients have access to advanced dentistry and smile artistry. With the use of porcelain veneers, our team will be able to provide patients with a smile they can be proud to share with others.
Porcelain veneers explained
When patients have an imperfection that is visible on their front teeth, they may feel self-conscious about how they look when they socialize with others. They may find that they had their smile behind their hand, or that they avoid showing their teeth when involved in photo opportunities. With our professionals, patients can achieve a smile they are pleased to show off! Porcelain veneers are commonly used on the anterior teeth, and can cover up a problem that may exist on the front of the smile. These restorations are extremely thin facings that are custom made to bond over a tooth or several teeth in the smile to disguise common problem areas. Many patients may use porcelain veneers when they have broken, chipped, misaligned, unusually shaped, or permanently stained teeth. Some patients consider porcelain veneers for gaps between the front teeth as well. Porcelain veneers allow patients a fast and affordable way to address these concerns for many years, as proper care and management will allow most people the chance to enjoy their restorations for a decade or longer.
What alternatives are available?
Since porcelain veneers are typically used to cover cosmetic imperfections, they are only offered alongside composite resin bonding which is also available at our practice. Also known as dental bonding, this material can be molded onto teeth, cured with a special light, and polished to look just like natural tooth enamel for seamless fixes to the smile. However, these restorations do not last as long as porcelain veneers, though they may be suitable for patients seeking an economic alternative.
