At Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry, patients in the community of Palm Beach Gardens, FL can seek assistance in improving the appearance of their smile with cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is a special field of dental work that focuses on the aesthetics of the teeth and gums and may include enhancement options such as the fabrication and placement of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are best described by Drs. Jay M. Lerner and Gerard J. Lemongello as ceramic facings that are custom-made to bond over the front of a natural tooth to cover an imperfection that is impacting the appearance of the smile. These veneers are made to look just like the natural tooth and are often bonded on the teeth near the front of the mouth. These are the teeth that are most noticeable when patients speak, laugh, and smile with others. Porcelain veneers are incredibly popular for covering common issues such as:
• Misaligned teeth
• Permanently stained teeth
• Broken or chipped teeth
• Unusually shaped teeth
• Gaps between teeth
Before moving forward with the use of porcelain veneers, patients will first book a consultation visit with their dentist to determine if they are appropriate candidates. The best candidates for porcelain veneers are patients who have an otherwise healthy smile and want to address an imperfection on the anterior teeth. Once patients have chosen porcelain veneers as their restoration, they will undergo preparations. These preparations include filing down the front of the tooth before taking impressions. These impressions are sent to a dental laboratory so the ceramist can fabricate the new veneer and return it to the dental office for bonding in place.
