Are Veneers the Right Treatment for You?

You may be wondering if veneers are the right option for you. To qualify for veneers in Philadelphia, PA, you need to have healthy gums and no tooth decay, commit to proper oral hygiene and care and have a sufficient amount of healthy tooth enamel. Diagnostic X-rays help determine if you have cavities, gum disease, compromised tooth strength, or major cracks and chips. These issues must be resolved before getting veneers. It’s also important to discuss desired goals at your first consultation, so Dr. Kessler can set realistic expectations and if needed, provide better alternatives to address your needs. Because a thin layer of dental enamel is removed, veneers are considered an irreversible process. In general, dental veneers are a quick and effective way to correct a variety of cosmetic or structural tooth issues including:

  • Permanent stains or discoloration
  • Minor gaps and misalignment
  • Small chips and cracks
  • Uneven teeth
  • Teeth with rough or worn-down enamel
  • Slightly crooked or misshapen teeth

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry treatment that can dramatically improve the appearance of teeth in your smile zone. The thin shells of medical-grade ceramic resembles natural tooth enamel and measure about 0.5mm in thickness. While dental crowns are like a snug hat that surrounds and restores function to a damaged tooth, veneers are like an artificial fingernail—they cover just the surface of front teeth to improve cosmetic appearance. Preparing a tooth for a veneer only requires removing the smallest amount of tooth enamel from the front surface.

The Porcelain Veneers Procedure

Dr. Kessler prepares the tooth by using an anesthetic to numb the area before removing a thin layer of tooth enamel. This is necessary for a seamless fit and proper restoration of natural tooth function and smile beauty. Special care is taken to ensure your new veneers blend in beautifully with other teeth and complement your skin tone, gum line, lip line, and facial features. Digital impressions are taken and sent to a high-quality dental lab that has experience fabricating veneers. Before you leave, a temporary veneer is created from a composite resin that you’ll wear until the permanent one comes back from the dental lab.

During your second appointment, Dr. Kessler verifies the fit and makes certain you’re happy with the veneer appearance before permanently attaching it to the front of your tooth. Although the dental lab we use creates exquisitely precise custom veneers, tiny adjustments can be made while you’re in the chair until they look and feel perfect. After your tooth is cleaned, the veneer is bonded with a special dental cement and then hardened with a blue curing light.
