Which Philadelphia area patients are proper candidates for Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are commonly requested by Philadelphia area patients who are considering methods of improving imperfections of their natural teeth. These restorations are made of extremely thin pieces of porcelain that are custom-made to match the existing teeth for seamless integration. Porcelain is commonly used for dental restorations because of its strength and beauty. It closely resembles the appearance of natural tooth enamel, which makes it a wonderful method of correcting areas of concern within the smile.
At David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we use dental veneers for a number of reasons. They are versatile and can be used to cover:
- Areas of permanent staining and discoloration
- Teeth that are misaligned or crooked
- Spaces between teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth near the front of the mouth
- Teeth that are unusually shaped
Dr. David Spilkia in Philadelphia believes in providing high quality restorations to improve the appearance of smiles. Using the best that dental technology has to offer, he can offer a variety of ways to address a single wayward tooth or an entire arch of teeth. Patients are encouraged to speak with Dr. David Spilkia during an initial consultation appointment and find out if they are best suited for veneers.
The best candidates for dental veneers in Philadelphia are those who meet the following requirements:
- Good oral health
- Strong, healthy teeth
- Sufficient enamel on the teeth to be addressed
- Do not suffer from bruxism (clenching and grinding of teeth)
- Are not nail biters and do not put unnecessary pressure on the anterior teeth
- Patients who have considered other alternatives such as dental bonding, teeth whitening, and orthodontics
During the initial consultation appointment, patients are welcome to ask questions about veneers and learn more about alternative solutions that may be better for their specific budget and concerns such as dental bonding, orthodontics, crowns, or other methods of repairing natural teeth. At David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, we look forward to meeting new patients in and around the Philadelphia area.
