Patients Can Use Porcelain Veneers to Enhance the Smile and Address Imperfections
- Posted on: Jun 30 2019
It is not unusual for the dentist at Clarendon Dental Arts to visit with patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their smile. A smile can be healthy but still have cosmetic imperfections that can impact the appearance of the smile—as well as one’s personal self-esteem and confidence. When issues arise near the front of the smile, Dr. Danine Fresch Gray may suggest the advantages of creating and placing porcelain veneers.
Understanding porcelain veneers
Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way over the years, and patients have more options than ever before to choose from for smile enhancement. Porcelain veneers are just one of several treatments that can be used for improving the appearance of the smile. Dr. Danine Fresch Gray and her team at Clarendon Dental Arts are committed to helping patients use porcelain veneers on the anterior teeth to address problems such as:
- Misaligned teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Spaced teeth
Porcelain veneers are ceramic facings that are made to be extremely thin for bonding over a natural tooth. These facings can cover the imperfections that make patients feel self-conscious about the way they look when they laugh, smile, and talk with others. These restorations are custom-made to match the patient’s existing teeth, and they are easy to create and place with the help of our dentist. These restorations are bonded using special dental bonding glue, and with proper care, can last a decade or longer!
Who can obtain porcelain veneers?
Any patient who has a healthy smile that is free from decay and disease and wants to improve the appearance of one or more teeth on the front of the smile may benefit from the creation and placement of porcelain veneers. It is best for patients to have a consultation visit with their dentist to also learn about alternatives that are available for consideration as well, such as composite resin bonding.
