Looking for Veneers in Southampton, PA? Look no further than Dr. Dancu!
Veneers are a great option for patients who have chipped, broken, or discolored teeth and want a fast, inexpensive solution. While there are a few different types of veneers that many dentists use. The most popular are porcelain veneers, because they provide the right color and texture to ensure the veneer looks as natural as possible. These thin strips of porcelain not only improve the appearance of your teeth, they can also help to strengthen your teeth, making them more resilient to chipping or breaking.
What are veneers?
The most popular type of veneer used in cosmetic dentistry today is made out of porcelain. Many layers of very thin ceramic are used to replicate natural-looking enamel. The veneer is attached to the tooth using an adhesive. In order to apply the veneer, we will usually have to remove a very small amount of the tooth. The adhesive is then applied, followed by the veneer. Most adhesives then require a light to cure them, which will strengthen the bond and ensure that the veneers function properly.
When the original tooth has been severely discolored, fractured, chipped, broken, or simply does not have a desirable shape, veneers are often the best option for making the tooth look natural, complete and healthy.
How do I know if veneers are the right option for me?
Veneers are far from the only option you have if you want to repair the appearance of your teeth and make your mouth healthier overall. How do you know if this is going to be the right option for you? The best way is to make an appointment with Dr. John Dancu, your local Southampton, PA dentist, to discuss your questions and concerns.
Teeth that have been broken, are crooked, or just do not look how you want them to look, can all be easily fixed with veneers, but there might be an alternate solution that better works for your situation. On the other hand, veneers might be the ideal option for you and your teeth. Talking to an experienced dentist like Dr. Dancu is one of the best ways to find out what you should do.
Why choose veneers?
One of the biggest benefits of choosing veneers is that they do actually improve the structural integrity of your teeth. For example, if your two front teeth have been slowly chipped away, applying a veneer can be a good way to provide those teeth with some strength, while also restoring them to their whole and natural shape.
Veneers also do not stain like natural teeth do, so if you get veneers, you will not see them darken like your natural teeth do over time. They look just like your natural teeth, but they are much less susceptible to the damage that your everyday eating and drinking habits put on those natural teeth.
In comparison to crowns, which require you to remove a large portion of the original tooth, with veneers, most of the original tooth is maintained, so only minimal work has to be done in order to get the tooth to look brand new again.
