Dentist in Kingston Is Educating Patients on the Benefits and Applications of Dental Veneers
Has your smile lost some of its luster? Have you lost confidence in showing it off due to teeth which are chipped, discolored or misshapen? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, you should consider porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a dental treatment being offered by Dr. Stephen Lawrence and his team at Lawrence Dental in Kingston, PA which restore your smile and will have you showing off those pearly whites again to anybody who will see.
A porcelain veneer is a wafer-thin coating which is applied to a tooth and can correct the appearance of several dental problems including:
- Tooth Discoloration
- Cracked Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
These are just a few of the problems a porcelain veneer can help correct. Before considering the possibility of porcelain veneers as a solution to you dental problems, here are some facts about porcelain veneers which may help guide you to this wonderfully effective solution.
You Don’t Need Veneers for All Your Teeth
When you consider porcelain veneers as a solution to whatever dental issue ails you, it’s important to understand that veneers need only be applied to affected teeth and you don’t need them covering your entire smile. That’s not to say that you can’t apply veneers to all your teeth if you so desire, but if you only have a single tooth that, let’s say, has become discolored over time, then you only need apply a veneer to that tooth. A porcelain veneer can be crafted to match the color of your natural teeth, so nobody will know that you’ve applied a veneer to that single tooth.
Application of a Porcelain Veneer is Incredibly Simple
The process of receiving a veneer is wonderful in its simplicity. Once the veneer has been crafted, a very thin layer of your tooth’s enamel will be sanded down to create a rough surface to which the porcelain veneer can then be bonded to using a bonding agent. Once the veneer is placed and the bonding agent dried, you are free to leave and continue your day. This makes veneers simple to place while also being time-efficient and there is no need to anesthetics.
