Using porcelain veneers to enhance the smile in a fast and affordable manner
Created on April 15, 2019
Dr. David Peck and the team of professionals at Taylor Street Dental have invested their time and energy into learning about the ways in which they can help patients improve their smiles. Patients who want a healthy smile can enjoy general dentistry services, but there are some aesthetic issues that cannot be improved with cleanings and examinations. Instead, patients seeking changes to their smile will want to ask their professional team in Springfield, MA about the advantages of using porcelain veneers.
Improve imperfections by using porcelain veneers
With the use of porcelain veneers, patients can cover imperfections that are noticeable on the front of the smile, or the “anterior teeth.” These teeth are seen every time a patient laughs, talks, or smiles at others. When problems occur with these teeth, patients will want to ask about cosmetic solutions to cover them. Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic facings that a dentist will custom-make to bond onto the front of the teeth to completely transform the look of the smile. Patients can use one or more veneers together to enhance the appearance of the teeth.
What imperfections can porcelain veneers be used for?
Imperfections that can be addressed with porcelain veneers include:
• Misaligned teeth
• Spaced/gapped teeth
• Unusually shaped teeth
• Permanently stained teeth
• Chipped/broken teeth
How are veneers placed?
First, the dentist will prepare the tooth for the placement of porcelain veneers by filing down a layer of the natural tooth enamel. Impressions are completed and mailed off to a dental laboratory with specific instructions regarding the creation of the final piece. Patients may have a temporary veneer bonded in place until this final restoration arrives back at the office. Then patients return to have the veneer bonded by the dentist to complete their final look.
