Has your smile been looking lackluster lately? Here at Abington Dental Arts in Clarks Summit, PA, your dentists, Drs. Jeffrey Bell, Dale Collins, and Amy Cravath offer patients porcelain veneers, a cosmetic dentistry procedure that conceals stains, enhances color, and completely rejuvenates your smile.
What are Veneers?
A beautiful smile has good tooth color, shape and alignment, just to name a few characteristics. Porcelain veneers can improve your overall smile and boost your self-esteem, especially when it comes to the characteristics mentioned above.
Veneers are a thin covering cemented to the surface of natural teeth. The porcelain material that veneers are made of is super strong and made to last for years on end. Veneers substitute natural tooth enamel when bonded to your teeth to create a natural-looking and beautiful smile.
The Benefits and Versatility of Veneers
Your Clarks Summit dentist provides this cosmetic dentistry procedure to improve several characteristics. Veneers enhance the color of teeth by hiding stains, which usually come as the result of eating and drinking certain foods and drinks, smoking, or simply undergoing the aging process.
Veneers also improve the size and shape of teeth. Teeth naturally become worn down from poor habits like teeth grinding and teeth clenching. These habits impact the shape and/or size of teeth. Veneers can make teeth look rounder-edged or squarer-edged, whichever is more flattering for your smile and face.
Veneers improve alignment and spacing by closing small gaps between teeth and by making slight corrections in alignment. Extreme crookedness may need other dental procedures, so make sure that you consult your dentist.
How Do You Care for Veneers?
- Gentle brushing and flossing on a daily basis
- Regular dental checkups at the dental office
- Professional dental cleanings
- Using a custom-made nightguard to protect your veneers
