What are the advantages of porcelain veneers for Philadelphia area residents?

Addressing imperfections of the smile is high on the list for many patients in the Philadelphia area who are unhappy with the aesthetics of their teeth and gums. Imperfections may be permanent staining, small gaps between teeth, broken enamel, misalignment, or other flaws. When patients are faced with these issues, they may think that cosmetic work will be expensive and time-consuming when really, there are fast, affordable, and effective ways of addressing these issues with the team at David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Many patients are proper candidates for treatments such as porcelain veneers.

Porcelain Veneer Options Philadelphia

Porcelain veneers are cosmetic restorations that appear as thin shells of ceramic. They look like tooth surfaces and are utilized in just that manner. They are created to match the appearance of the surrounding teeth to blend in with the smile, and they are bonded over the front to cover up the problem areas. Dr. David Spilkia is a dentist in the Philadelphia area who may suggest these to patients who want to disguise problem areas within their smile quickly.

Porcelain veneers have many advantages. They are long lasting, beautiful, and effective at covering up cosmetic issues. They are easily bonded over the front of the natural teeth and they can provide a more attractive smile within just a short time. Patients who are considering porcelain veneers are advised that preparation is necessary and often involves the removal of a thin portion of enamel from the front of the teeth. This enamel is removed before impressions are made of the teeth and used for the dental laboratory to fabricate the final veneers. Dr. David Spilkia will consult with the ceramist regarding the shape and color of the restorations to ensure they will appear seamless within the smile. Within a few weeks, patients will be able to enjoy a more attractive appearance with the placement of quality veneers.

Dr. David Spilkia is a cosmetic dentist ready and willing to assist patients with achieving a more attractive smile they can be proud of showing off to the world.
