If you have a perfect smile, you don’t have to read any further. If you’re in the majority, though, then you might consider the benefits of porcelain veneers. They’re just one of the many ways that Dr. Harold Krinsky in Sauganash can help you to improve your smile.
Among the many benefits of veneers is that they can fix virtually any dental imperfection. Granted, sometimes dental problems are severe enough to require crowns, braces or implants, but most of the time minor misalignments, crowding, chipping, discoloration or gapping can be fixed with far less costly porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are not full restorations. What that means is that your dentist does not have to expend a whole lot of effort and use a whole lot of material to correct your problems. Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they can be installed easily and quickly, and you won’t have to spend a whole lot of money.
Porcelain veneers are nothing more nor less than shells made out of dental porcelain that fit over the fronts of your own teeth. To install them, your dentist just scrapes off a bit of your tooth enamel in order to ensure that the veneers can be properly fitted. Then he takes some impressions, sends them to a lab, and once they come back, he does a bit of “fine tuning” and you’re good to go in no time.
Yet another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are very easily cared for. Just brush and floss the same way you always did, and see your dentist for checkups to ensure that the underlying teeth are still in good shape.
Your veneers will not decay or stain, and will last for a long time.
