When Does Dr. Slepchik Suggest Porcelain Veneers As Treatment?
- Posted on: Nov 15 2019
Are you interested in having a dental restoration that can improve the overall appearance of your smile? Do you have imperfections on your front teeth that keep you from sharing your smile with others? If you have considered cosmetic dentistry solutions but have avoided asking your dentist about them, we encourage you to make an appointment with Dr. Lenny Slepchik in downtown Montreal to learn more about porcelain veneers and how they can improve your confidence in only two dental appointments.
How veneers work
Porcelain veneers are ceramic restorations that are bonded over the front teeth to change their appearance. They are an excellent, long-term alternative to composite resin bonding, which stains easily and will only last a few years at most. Porcelain veneers provide the coverage patients need to mask imperfections that impact on the beauty of your smile.
When Do We Suggest porcelain veneers ?
Many situations and imperfections can benefit from the placement of porcelain veneers. Below are just a few situations where Dr. Slepchik will recommend porcelain veneers to improve a patient’s smile:
- Misalignment. When one or more teeth near the front of the smile is turned in an odd direction, it can stand out—in a bad way. With a porcelain veneer, the tooth can be covered and made to look as though it is perfectly aligned with the rest of the smile—without ever having to do orthodontic treatment.
- Gaps. Some patients experience a space between their two front teeth. Without braces, patients can cover each tooth with a porcelain veneer that is slightly larger than the original tooth and provides coverage for the space between.
- Permanently stained teeth. Sometimes a tooth is stained or discoloured, possibly from medication or by an injury sustained by the tooth. A porcelain veneer covers the tooth and allows it to match the rest of your smile.
- Unusually shaped teeth. Teeth that are too short or not wide enough can cause unwanted imperfections. Covering these teeth with veneers allows them to seamlessly integrate with the rest of your teeth.
- Breakage. A porcelain veneer may also be used to cover a tooth that is broken or chipped, ensuring there are no sharp edges and that the tooth structure is protected from further damage.
