Who is a proper candidate in the Ware Shoals, SC area for cosmetic veneers?
In the Ware Shoals, SC area, many patients visit the practice of Dr. Christopher T. Griffin with aesthetic concerns. Many of these patients are dealing with problems such as stained or broken teeth. In cases such as this, many patients are good candidates for an aesthetic treatment such as cosmetic veneers.
Cosmetic veneers, also called porcelain veneers or “instant orthodontics,” can be used in a variety of instances. These thin shells of porcelain are custom-made by Dr. Christopher T. Griffin to bond over the front of the natural teeth to disguise problems including:
- Spaces between teeth
- Short teeth
Dr. Christopher T. Griffin of the Greenwood and Ware Shoals, SC area works with many adult patients who want to cover these imperfections and enjoy a more beautiful smile. This cosmetic dentistry procedure allows patients to make a dramatic change in just a few weeks.
The best candidates for cosmetic veneers are patients who have imperfections within their smiles that can be covered by veneers, and have good overall oral health. Patients with periodontal disease or tooth decay must first treat these issues before starting the process of porcelain veneers. Patients must adhere to regularly scheduled visits with their dentist for examinations and cleanings to monitor for the development of disease or decay underneath their veneers.
Veneers can take up to two weeks to complete. The teeth are prepared by removing a thin portion of enamel from the surface, which helps in allowing the veneer to bond tightly to the teeth without adding extra bulk or thickness. This ensures a natural, beautiful result. Patients must wait for the veneers to be custom-made by our quality ceramists at an outside laboratory that uses the impressions to create these beautiful restorations.
Dr. Christopher T. Griffin is excited to help new patients in his modern dental facility, and welcomes you to contact his practice today to schedule your consultation appointment and initial examination to find out if cosmetic veneers are appropriate for transforming the appearance of your natural smile!
