Using dental veneers to improve the smile in an economical manner
- Posted on: Nov 15 2020
Cosmetic treatments used to be expensive and unattainable for the general public. Hollywood stars and the elite few who had the money to fund a smile makeover were the only ones who had access to these types of treatments. Now, cosmetic dentistry has become incredibly affordable, and dentists are providing a wide range of services for everyday people who desire a more attractive smile. At Baltimore Periodontics, Lasers, and Dental Implants, our team can help Catonsville, MD area patients achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted with aesthetic services such as porcelain veneers.
How do porcelain veneers work?
Porcelain veneers are facings that are custom-fabricated for a patient to match their existing teeth. This facing is a thin shell of ceramic that is bonded onto the front of a tooth. It can cover a wide range of common aesthetic issues including:
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Short teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
By using porcelain veneers, many patients can disguise common issues that may otherwise take extensive time to fix with orthodontics or materials that stain easily such as composite resin bonding. Porcelain veneers are highly advantageous because they are:
- Made to match the patient’s smile
- Long-lasting with proper care
- Custom-fabricated by a ceramist
Who is a good candidate for porcelain veneers?
During a consultation appointment with the dentist, patients can ask their provider if they are a good fit for porcelain veneers. A physical evaluation is performed, as well as evaluation of a patient’s medical and dental history. The best patients for porcelain veneers are individuals who have a smile free from periodontal disease and cavities, and who are dedicated to ensuring they care for their smile with routine visits to the dentist. This is because cavities and other issues can still develop on the tooth underneath the porcelain veneer which makes regular evaluations necessary to ensure the health of the smile over time.
