Porcelain veneers are an effective and versatile treatment for achieving the smile of your dreams. When you meet with Dr. Christine Koval for a porcelain veneers consultation at her Sarasota office, you will be able to have all of your concerns addressed in full detail. Find out how porcelain veneers can “enhance your smile and enhance your life!”
Also referred to as dental veneers, porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that are custom crafted to fit over the frontal part of a tooth. When in place, porcelain veneers are able to mask dental flaws from view and give you a smile that looks absolutely perfect.
Dental Problems That Porcelain Veneers Can Address
Porcelain veneers are ideal for addressing a number of aesthetic flaws, including:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Stained/discolored teeth
- Tooth gaps
- Minor tooth misalignment
- The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile. Sometimes a smile can be drastically improved with just a veneer or two. During your consultation, we will determine if porcelain veneers on their own will be sufficient for your needs. One of the biggest benefits of porcelain veneers is their natural appearance. Porcelain veneers are semi-translucent, allowing light to pass through them the same way it would through natural tooth structure. No matter what kind of lighting you’re in, no one will be able to tell that you have porcelain veneers in place.
Ideal Candidates for Porcelain Veneers
The best candidates for porcelain veneers are people who suffer from the above listed aesthetic problems. It’s important that patients have realistic expectations about the treatment process and what it involves as well. Porcelain veneers candidates should be in otherwise good dental health as the treatment is cosmetic. Serious flaws with cracks, chips, and malocclusion would be better addressed through restorative dentistry and orthodontics.
The Porcelain Veneers Procedure
During the porcelain veneers procedure, a small amount of tooth structure (a fraction of a millimeter) is removed from the front of a tooth. This is simply done to accommodate the porcelain veneer. An impression is then taken of the tooth, and from this impression the porcelain veneer is crafted. When the porcelain veneer is ready, it is checked one last time for color match and fit before it is securely adhered in place.
