When might Abbeville area patients benefit from veneers for teeth?
Cosmetic dentistry allows patients in and around the Abbeville area to improve the appearance of their smiles. Dr. Christopher T. Griffin offers numerous options for addressing aesthetics and functionality of the teeth. Veneers are one of the most commonly requested cosmetic solutions in his practice.
Veneers are used to cover teeth that may have one or more imperfections. Permanent staining, misalignment, and breakage are the most common reasons patients may consider this solution. These restorations are made of porcelain, which is a material that closely represents the appearance of natural tooth enamel. This material is also strong enough to withstand biting and chewing forces without breaking. This makes them a perfect match for restoring the smile. Patients can have their veneers fabricated to match the existing natural teeth for a cosmetic, yet natural, element.
Veneers have several benefits. They are beautiful, natural looking, and long lasting. They can provide patients with restored confidence and the ability to smile, laugh, and talk with others without feeling self-conscious or hiding their mouth behind their hands. Patients who have veneers done must allow two to three weeks for the process. The initial consultation appointment is completed to ensure porcelain veneers are the best solution, and the next appointment is when the teeth are prepared and molds are made. These impressions are sent to a ceramist who creates the porcelain veneers and sends them to the dentist for placement. Patients return to the practice for the final placement of the restorations and leave with a renewed smile!
Dr. Christopher T. Griffin believes veneers can make a subtle or dramatic appearance in the smile, and has seen them boost self-confidence for those who have had them placed. He knows how they can greatly improve the aesthetics of the teeth.
