Dental Issues That Can Be Solved With Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, ceramic shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. Depending on your case, Dr. Mulkey or Dr. Hildreth may need to remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth to prepare it for your porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are specially crafted by a skilled ceramist so the completion of the porcelain veneer process can take anywhere from 2-3 weeks. Once completed, Dr. Mulkey or Dr. Hildreth will check the fit and color of your porcelain veneers to ensure a natural looking, beautiful result.
Porcelain veneers can address:
- Chipped or cracked teeth: Chipped or cracked teeth can sometimes be embarrassing. More importantly, it is necessary to treat cracked or chipped teeth to prevent further damage. Porcelain veneers can be a lasting solution for patients with chipped or cracked teeth.
- Discolored teeth: Porcelain is a stain resistant material which can make it an ideal solution for patients with stained teeth.
- Gapped teeth: Porcelain veneers can help close gaps between teeth and correct uneven teeth.
- Crooked teeth: In some cases, porcelain veneers can be used to give crooked teeth a straighter appearance. Treating crooked teeth can be beneficial for your oral health as well.
