Dr. Venitress Carrington of Covington’s Smile Creations is dedicated to helping patients who are ready to enhance the beauty of their smiles. The smile affects the first impression others have of us. With cosmetic dentistry, patients can now achieve a more attractive smile by covering problematic teeth with porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers?
The best way to describe a porcelain veneer is a ceramic facing. These facings are custom-made by ceramists using impressions of the teeth after preparation. Preparation requires the removal of a thin portion of natural enamel to avoid bulk when the restoration is bonded in place onto the front of the tooth.
What are the advantages of using porcelain veneers?
While there are alternative options for patients, including composite resin bonding, this is not always the best treatment. There is no “one size fits all” solution for everyone, so Dr. Venitress Carrington consults with patients to determine which is most appropriate. Porcelain veneers are sometimes chosen because of their longevity, lasting a decade or longer, or due to their ease of placement. Porcelain veneers look completely natural. Unlike composite resin bonding, porcelain veneers will not stain. This makes them a desirable option. Patients understand that veneers cost more upfront, but many are willing to pay a little more to know that they do not have to replace them anytime soon. This is often the best investment for an attractive smile!
