Philadelphia area patients ask, what are veneers?

Imperfections in the smile can have a negative impact. Patients who have teeth that are spaced too far apart, permanently discolored, crooked, or visibly too short may want to work with a Philadelphia area dentist to address these esthetic concerns. Dr. David Spilkia of Philadelphia is here to help with a wide range of cosmetic treatments, including porcelain veneers

Solution for Imperfections in the Smile

What are veneers? Veneers are facings made of ceramic that are bonded over the front of teeth to cover imperfections. This method of treatment is highly encouraged by patients who want an affordable, fast, and effective way of disguising esthetic problems with the teeth near the front of the smile. Porcelain veneers are incredibly popular for patients who want to avoid alternative treatments such as dental bonding or orthodontics.

Dr. David Spilkia will determine if patients are appropriate candidates for the placement of porcelain veneers. This is done during a consultation appointment. His team will evaluate the smile and patients can take this time to learn about the alternative treatments in case they are interested in the benefits of undergoing these solutions. By discussing the ways in which they can improve their smiles, they will have the knowledge necessary to make an educated decision.

Once patients have decided that porcelain veneers are best for them, they undergo the preparation process. This requires the dentist to remove a very thin portion of the tooth enamel. Using special materials, he makes impressions of the teeth, which are sent to an outside laboratory for fabrication. Patients may even request their veneers to be made in-house using our CEREC technology for same day solutions. The finished veneers are bonded over the corresponding teeth, and patients learn how to care for their new restorations.

If you are ready to learn more about the ways in which porcelain veneers can be used to enhance your smile, contact David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to find out if these restorations are right for you! We work with our patients to help them decide on the best possible way to achieve a more attractive smile quickly, easily, and within their budgets!
