When should Philadelphia residents consider veneers from their cosmetic dentist?
A perfect smile doesn’t come naturally for most patients. Many of us are born with imperfections of our teeth, such as the color, shape, or alignment. However, thanks to David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, many local area patients can make drastic changes to their smile with porcelain veneers and other restorations. Many cosmetic treatments and restorations are available with most Philadelphia dentists, and porcelain veneers are just one of the many fast and easy ways to rejuvenate and transform a smile!
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to cover flawed teeth. Very minimal amounts of enamel are removed from the natural tooth, and the veneer is bonded to the front. Veneers are made to look extremely natural and beautiful, in order to blend with the patient’s natural teeth, and look aesthetically pleasing.
A patient may want to consider veneers in several situations:
Realignment of teeth
When there are crooked or misaligned teeth within the smile, months or even years of orthodontics seem like a costly alternative. Instead, veneers can give the appearance of straighter natural teeth.
Unusually shaped teeth
If teeth have an unusual shape or size, veneers can cover these teeth and provide them with a more cosmetically pleasing appearance.
There are situations in which traditional teeth whitening alternatives cannot remove deep or internal staining and discoloration of a tooth. When this happens, patients may want to consider the placement of a veneer to cover and hide this imperfection.
Chipped or broken teeth
Trauma happens, but it shouldn’t have a negative effect on your smile. Thanks to veneers, patients with chips or cracks in their teeth can use these restorations to cover and protect the tooth from further damage.
Veneers can make a substantial difference in the way a patient’s smile appears. Dr. Spilkia enjoys their fast, effective results, and offers high-quality veneers that look beautiful and natural.
