Cosmetic dentistry offers a wide variety of options for patients desiring either a subtle or dramatic change to the appearance of their smile, but one of the most popular and long lasting is porcelain veneers.
There are several types of dental veneers, but porcelain veneers offer permanent, comfortable and long lasting results- they can last for years with the proper oral hygiene and preventive care with Dr. Petkevis at Dental Distinction in Chester Springs.
Dental veneers can be used for cosmetic correction and as a solution for dental problems such as gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, discolored teeth, and chipped or broken teeth.
At Dental Distinction, Dr. Jason Petkevis offers his Chester Springs area dental patients several options for using dental veneers to correct a cosmetic or health problem:
Lumineers: Dr. Petkevis offers dental veneers that are similar to this brand of veneer. A removable veneer requiring little to no tooth preparation, Lumineers can be an alternative to mild orthodontic treatment by making teeth appear straighter- as well as whiter!
Composite resin veneers: Dr. Petkevis skillfully places composite veneers, sculpting the biocompatible material to fit aesthetically with the patient’s natural teeth- this type of veneer is also removable and will have to be replaced over time;
Porcelain veneers: using high quality material, porcelain veneers offer a permanent restoration and are matched to a patient’s natural tooth color for beautiful results.
Porcelain veneers are highly stain resistant and are made of a thin, translucent material that also reflects light in the same way a natural tooth does, allowing them to blend seamlessly with a patient’s natural smile.
Custom fit and made in a dental lab, porcelain veneers allow a patient to function normally after treatment, eating and speaking without noticing that they are there! After the placement of the veneers, Dr. Petkevis will educate his patients on the proper care of their new dental veneers in order to maximize their longevity!
Lumineers and composite veneers, also known as tooth bonding, require no tooth prep, but are not permanent. Dr. Petkevis will recommend the appropriate veneer depending on a patient’s oral health, cosmetic and budgetary goals.
