At Muncie Dental Care, patients in and around the Parker City, Indiana area seeking a quality dentist should look no further! Dr. Kevin J. Welch and his team can assist with a wide range of preventive, general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures. This includes the fabrication and placement of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a wonderful solution for patients who are interested in covering imperfections of the natural smile. Imperfections may include gaps between the teeth, misaligned teeth, or teeth that are chipped or broken. When these are present in the smile, they can make patients feel self-conscious about their appearance. Porcelain veneers are a great option. These ceramic facings are custom-made for patients. They are made to match the existing teeth in color and shape, and are bonded over the front of the tooth to disguise problems. Porcelain veneers are a fast, effective, and affordable option for patients when compared with more extensive procedures such as orthodontics or complete smile rehabilitation.
There are several advantages to using porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are natural-looking and when placed in the smile are indistinguishable from the existing teeth. They can cover aesthetic issues and do so quickly, within a week or two. Patients enjoy their porcelain veneers for many years, often a decade or longer, with proper care. Patients with veneers must still see their dental team regularly for examinations to ensure periodontal disease or cavities do not form underneath the restorations. Treatment for these issues should be performed as soon as possible to avoid the loss of the natural tooth through decay or disease. Veneers are also stain-resistant and are very strong, though patients should wear mouth guards if they struggle with temporomandibular joint disorder or bruxism.
