Restore the Beauty of Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
January 15, 2020

Patients who have imperfections present in their smile may be unaware of the many ways in which they can improve their smile. Cosmetic dentistry is becoming more popular over time as patients find how affordable and effective these treatments can be. One common restoration used at Ralph Avenue Dental Care is that of porcelain veneers, which continue to be a highly recommended treatment for patients with imperfections on the anterior (front) teeth.

How does a porcelain veneer work?

A veneer is a porcelain coverage solution for teeth that have imperfections near the front of the mouth. The veneer is a shell of ceramic that a cosmetic dentist can bond over the front of a tooth to completely cover it. In doing so, it can create the appearance of a beautiful smile. The veneer will last many years with proper care with most of our patients maintaining theirs for ten years or more.

What can porcelain veneers disguise?

There are several common aesthetic issues that porcelain veneers can be used to disguise, including:

  • Gapped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Unusually shaped teeth
  • Misaligned/crooked teeth
  • Permanently stained teeth

Are veneers a good option for me?

During a consultation and initial evaluation with the dentists of Ralph Avenue Dental Care, patients can find out if porcelain veneers are a good fit for their unique needs. There are a wide range of products and services available in our practice for patients to consider as well, including dental crowns and composite resin bonding. We welcome patients to take the time to learn about our options to make an educated decision in regards to the treatment route to pursue.
