Porcelain Veneer Candidates
If you have a smile that is not quite what you wish it was, that’s actually quite normal. Very few people in this world are born with a perfect smile, but that doesn’t mean getting the smile of your dreams is impossible. There’s where a skilled Philadelphia cosmetic dentist like Dr. Bruce Wilderman comes in. Using his eye for smiles and years of dental know how, Dr. Wilderman will determine the best way to enhance your smile.
One very popular treatment option these days is porcelain veneers. These thin shells of specially crafted dental ceramic have been the toast of celebrities for some time now. They are able to address a number of different dental problems and blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. They’re the cornerstone of many smile makeover strategies, and with good reason: they really are that effective.
So who are the best candidates for Philadelphia porcelain veneers?
Well, if you have teeth that are slightly chipped or cracked, teeth that are severely stained, or teeth that are a little misaligned, porcelain veneers may be right for you. In the case of chips and cracks, porcelain veneers are the answer so long as the overall structure or health of the tooth is not affected by the damage. In the case of tooth stains, if you have stains that are too severe for teeth whitening, veneers are your solution. And for little misalignments of the teeth that don’t require braces, you can rely on porcelain veneers.
It’s important that people that are getting porcelain veneers have strong teeth and good dental health overall. The process to place the porcelain veneers requires the removal of a small amount of tooth material. If the teeth are brittle or not structurally sound, an option other than porcelain veneers may be required.
