Philadelphia residents ask, “Which is better, braces or Invisalign?”
Covering tooth imperfections is easy and straightforward with the help of porcelain veneers. Years ago, veneers seemed to be only for the wealthy. Today, veneers are affordable and accessible, making them the ideal solution for many patients. In the skilled hands of Dr. Spilkia, patients in the Philadelphia area can truly enjoy all the benefits of this cosmetic procedure.
What are veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin strips of porcelain that are used to make cosmetic modifications to teeth. They are bonded to existing teeth to alter and improve their appearance. They can mask many common flaws such as chipped, worn, discolored, or slightly misaligned teeth.
The veneer process
Prior to placing the veneers, a small amount of enamel is removed from the front of teeth. This is to allow room for the veneer to sit flush and blend in the smile. Veneers require less removal of tooth enamel than dental crowns. The veneers process can be completed in a few short weeks. You and Dr. Spilkia will discuss the ideal smile you’d like to achieve with porcelain veneers. Whether you want a new smile, or simply wish to cover a few r chips, he can come up with a treatment plan to help you achieve the look you want.
What are the most common uses of porcelain veneers?
- To cover permanent discoloration
- To eliminate small gaps
- To mask minor alignment issues
You must have good oral health prior to receiving porcelain veneers. Any issues with tooth decay or gum disease will need to be addressed prior to cosmetic dental work.
