Imperfections of the smile can have a negative effect on overall appearance. Dr. Sameet Koppikar assists patients in the Phoenix, AZ area with achieving a beautiful smile using esthetic treatments such as porcelain veneers.
The best way to explain a veneer is as a cosmetic facing that is bonded over the front of the tooth. Porcelain veneers are made to cover a variety of imperfections which include teeth that are:
- Permanently stained
- Spaced apart
- Unusually shaped
The veneers are made of ceramic and are custom-designed for the patient. This means that they are fabricated to match the shape and color of the existing teeth so they integrate nicely into the smile. It is difficult for others to know that patients have veneers in place when done correctly by an esthetic dentist.
Why choose porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers are a wonderful alternative to composite resin bonding. While both are effective ways of addressing problem areas of the smile, composite resin bonding can stain easier and needs to be replaced after a few years. Porcelain veneers last longer, are more durable, and are often the better investment. However, patients who are seeking a short-term economical option may be well-suited for composite resin. A consultation appointment with Dr. Sameet Koppikar can help patients decide which is best for their smiles.
