How Porcelain Veneers Can Enhance Your Smile
Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option that can quickly transform your smile. You may be a candidate for this cosmetic treatment if your teeth have gaps, chips, stains, cracks, or minor misalignments. The thin, custom-made porcelain shells can be designed to closely resemble the look and feel of natural teeth.
In addition to their natural-looking appearance, porcelain veneers can often restore your smile in many other ways. Veneers can immediately alter the length and/or shape of your teeth, as well as cover gaps and misalignments. Furthermore, the durable, stain-resistant porcelain material can protect your natural teeth and last for decades if you are committed to preserving them with regular brushing, flossing and good oral hygiene.
Dr. Michael Kosdon will analyze your teeth during a consultation and determine if porcelain veneers would be the most effective treatment option for your needs and goals. To be considered a good candidate for the procedure, one must exhibit good oral and periodontal health. Depending on the specifics of your tooth structure, Dr. Kosdon may need to remove a small section of your enamel before placing the veneer.
