Dramatically—or subtly—enhance the smile with porcelain veneers
Created on March 30, 2020
A beautiful smile does not always happen naturally for patients. Additionally, problems can arise over the years that can impact the appearance of the smile, including trauma, injury, decay, or disease. However, whether a patient needs to make a subtle improvement or a dramatic transformation, porcelain veneers may be a great option for patients who visit Taylor Street Dental!
What is a porcelain veneer?
Facings created from ceramic to cement onto the front of a tooth disguise an imperfection are known as porcelain veneers. These restorations are commonplace in general and cosmetic dentistry as they can be a versatile solution for many problems, including:
- Misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Stained teeth
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Short teeth
Porcelain veneers are made specifically for a patient, and are fabricated to match the elements of the existing natural teeth for seamless integration. Our team focuses on the shape, size, and color of the veneer when designing the new restoration for a patient. Then, when the veneer is bonded in place, it will appear as natural tooth enamel and improve the overall look of the smile. These restorations are best used on the anterior, or front, teeth that are visible when patients laugh, smile, and speak to others.
Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?
If a single tooth is impacted by staining, damage, or alignment, it may be covered with a porcelain veneer to give the illusion of a perfect smile. Alternatively, patients with a number of problems on the anterior teeth may want to have several veneers placed side by side to transform the appearance of the smile and cover various issues at once. Our dental team will evaluate a patient to determine if they are a suitable candidate for veneers or other restorative treatments available at our Springfield, MA practice.
