Porcelain veneers explained
Dr. Lindsey F. Marshall is a dental professional available in the area of Ardmore, PA who uses porcelain veneers to enhance the smile’s appearance and build personal self-confidence in her patients. Imperfections such as broken, gapped, or permanently stained teeth can negatively affect the smile, and with the placement of porcelain veneers, these issues are quickly hidden. Porcelain veneers are ceramic restorations that are custom made for patients to bond over the front of the teeth to cover them. These restorations are an excellent option for patient consideration. They are made to match the existing teeth within the smile to ensure that they blend in, completing the smile’s overall appearance.
What is the process of obtaining porcelain veneers?
Patients start by booking a consultation appointment with their dentist. This is the perfect time for the dentist to assess the smile and provide recommendations for patient consideration. If patients determine that they would like to move forward with porcelain veneers, preparations are made. These preparations include filing down a thin portion of the enamel from the front of the tooth to eliminate the possibility of adding bulk. Impressions are prepared and sent to a laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers, which are bonded onto the teeth at a later appointment when the restorations are completed. Patients learn from their dentist how to care for and maintain their veneers.
