Restore your smile with dental veneers
- Posted on: Nov 30 2020
Unfortunately, for some individuals, a beautiful, perfect smile doesn’t come as a natural occurrence. Imperfect smiles might cause patients to feel self-conscious about their appearance and hide their teeth when socializing with friends, family, and coworkers. Instead of living with these aesthetic concerns, it might be a great time for patients to consider treatment using cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Lindsey Marshall of Ardmore, PA encourages patients to learn about the options available to them, including the fabrication and placement of dental veneers.
What are dental veneers?
Dr. Lindsey Marshall describes the dental veneer as a porcelain facing that is fabricated to bond onto the front of a tooth. This is done to disguise common concerns such as:
- Misalignment of teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Unusual size and shape of natural teeth
- Permanent stains
The veneers are custom-made for each patient so they are natural-looking and blend in with the smile. This ensures beautiful results for every individual.
Who is a candidate for dental veneers?
The best candidate for veneers is a patient who has a healthy smile free from periodontal disease and tooth decay, and who has imperfections on the front (anterior) teeth. This is the best location in the mouth for porcelain veneers. Patients should also have a history of good oral health habits, as the natural tooth underneath the veneer is still susceptible to decay and disease.
What can I expect for placement?
When patients decide to move forward with dental veneers, the dentist will remove a thin portion of enamel from the front surface of the tooth prior to taking impressions. The impressions are sent to a dental laboratory with specific instructions on the color, shape, and size of the final veneer. Once the veneer is completed, typically within a few weeks, the patient returns to the dental office to have the final restoration glued in place.
