- Posted on: Apr 15 2019
At Sullivan Dental Center, patients in and around the community of St. Francisville, LA are often interested in learning about cosmetic treatments that can be used to achieve a more attractive smile. With the help of our staff, patients can discuss specific options for treating imperfections of the smile such as porcelain veneers.
Understanding porcelain veneers
When patients are faced with imperfections of the smile, they are often unhappy with the way they look. They may cover their mouth when they laugh or speak, or avoid smiling even in happy social situations. Many patients experience self-esteem and confidence issues when they have an imperfect smile. However, with the help of our staff, patients can enhance their appearance with the use of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of porcelain that are fabricated to match the smile of the patient in size, shape, and color of the existing teeth. They are bonded over the front of an anterior tooth to cover imperfections that can impact one’s appearance. This is a fast and effective way of addressing teeth that are misaligned, permanently discolored, broken, or chipped.
Who is a candidate for porcelain veneers?
Patients with a smile free from periodontal disease and tooth decay can be evaluated for porcelain veneers. During an initial consultation appointment with our dentists, patients can speak to a professional about the imperfections of the smile they want to address to decide if porcelain veneers are best. There may be other treatment options that patients can consider as well, so speaking to a professional who can educate a patient on the variety of solutions used for smile enhancement is one way to reach a knowledgeable decision.
