Philadelphia Dentist shares alternative treatments to Porcelain Veneers

One of the most versatile restorations offered in cosmetic dentistry is that of porcelain veneers. These can be created and applied by a cosmetic Philadelphia dentist. Veneers play an important part in changing the appearance of teeth within the smile in a variety of situations. Dr. Spilkia of David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry can utilize veneers to provide improvements and enhancements to a patient’s natural smile.

Philadelphia Dentist Veneers

Porcelain veneers are used for a number of reasons. One reason patients may undergo porcelain veneers is due to teeth that are permanently stained or discolored. An alternative to veneer treatment would include teeth whitening. However, this is typically offered before a restorative treatment such as veneers are suggested.

Veneers can also cover crooked or misaligned teeth. Many patients who have one tooth, or just a few random teeth, within their smile that do not line up may not want to consider full orthodontic treatment. In instances such as these, patients can use veneers to address a tooth that is stubbornly out of place in the smile. If a patient has a number of misaligned teeth, or needs to address the alignment of their bite, they may consider the alternative methods instead.

Patients also have the opportunity to use porcelain veneers on teeth that are chipped, cracked, or broken. Veneers are bonded to the front of these teeth, so they can benefit from the veneer’s beauty and shape. However, patients can use alternative methods such as dental bonding or dental crowns to accomplish the same effect.

Dr. Spilkia, of David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, offers veneers and other restorations for patients who want to improve and enhance their smile. Together with his patients, he can help determine the best treatment options available and assist them in making an educated decision regarding their oral health and the beauty of their natural smile. Call his practice today to schedule a consultation appointment to determine the best procedures and restorations to make a positive impact on the way your smile looks and functions!
