Dental Veneers In Philadelphia

why-contact-lens-compareHave you ever gone to an event or met someone new, and felt hesitant to smile due to imperfections in your teeth? If your smile has ever affected you confidence, we can help correct your teeth with dental veneers. After you see a cosmetic dentist in Philadelphia from CCED and receive dental veneers, you will be able to show off a brighter smile and a more self-assured composure at the next important occasion that comes up (whether planned or a surprise),

 

What are Dental Veneers?

 

Dental veneers are cosmetic tooth coverings that are designed to improve the appearance of your teeth. They are custom-made to fit perfectly and bond directly to the front surfaces of your teeth for a natural-looking solution. Referred to occasionally as porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates, they are often made from resin composite materials or porcelain, and are colored to match the rest of your teeth. We recommend porcelain veneers, because they reflect light in the same way as your natural teeth, and they have a tendency of resisting stains more effectively than resin counterparts.

 

Veneers can change the color, shape, size and length of your teeth, so that you can have a whiter smile that is better aligned and will stand the test of time. They are an ideal choice for cosmetic dentistry resolutions, because they are both simple and versatile.

 

What Dental Corrections do Veneers Make?

 

The dental veneers offered in our Center City, Philadelphia office present many advantages compared to alternate options; they can:

 

  • Correct teeth that are discolored: Regardless of the original source of your tooth discoloration, veneers conceal the stains and yellowing that are present to achieve the brightness you desire.
  • Fix teeth that are worn down, chipped or broken: Veneers create an ideal shape for your tooth, and cover up damaged or shortened teeth.
  • Adjust teeth alignment: From bulges to gaps, this treatment option is a solution for uneven, misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth.

Getting veneers is becoming an increasingly demanded dental procedure, as it is virtually painless and offers tremendous durability. These thin shells provide an excellent alternative to Center City, Philadelphia broken tooth extraction in many cases.

Our Process at Center City Emergency Dentist

philadelphia dental veneersAt CCED we customize every patient’s experience, because we understand that each of our clients has individual needs. When you come to our Center City, Philadelphia location, a CCED dentist will consult with you to make your vision a reality with our dental veneers.

 

In order to renovate your smile with veneers, an average of three trips is usually necessary. You will need to have a proper evaluation by one of our Philadelphia oral health experts, and subsequent visits are needed for us to make molds and customize your veneers, as well as for us to apply and secure them.
The general process you can expect with our dentist when getting veneers is as follows:

 

  1. Diagnosis: We begin by examining your teeth (their features and length), as well as your facial structure. Our dentist will also take x-rays at this time.
  2. Preparation: Next, a small portion of enamel is removed, which will later allow for the thickness of your new veneers. We will make an impression of your teeth and make a model from the impression, which is sent out to a lab for your veneers’ creation. We will receive the veneers anywhere from two to four weeks later. In some cases, temporary veneers can be used during the wait period.
  3. Bonding: During the following visit, our Philadelphia dentist will take time fitting each veneer to your teeth, checking to match the color to surrounding teeth and trimming as warranted. Your teeth will be cleaned, polished and prepared for the veneers through a gentle etching that allows for a stronger (longer-lasting) bond. A dental cement is carefully applied to each veneer before being expertly positioned, and then a light will chemically activate the cement so that it will cure faster.

 

The very last steps are to remove any excess cement and make final adjustments. We may suggest a follow-up appointment after a few weeks to assess your healing process and to make sure that your gums are properly responding to the veneers.
