Everyone’s personal goals to improve the appearance of their smile are different. That is why there is no “one size fits all” approach to cosmetic and general dentistry. Dr. Sharon E. Schindler of Columbus, OH is a dedicated professional at Schindler Dentistry who is pleased to provide a wide array of services to patients ready to improve the appearance of their smile. When patients are interested in covering imperfections near the front of the smile, porcelain veneers may be the restoration recommended by our team.

What is a porcelain veneer?

Dr. Sharon E. Schindler describes the porcelain veneer as a restoration that is custom-made to bond over the front of a tooth to cover an imperfection. These restorations are highly popular as they look natural and provide a fast solution to aesthetic issues with the smile. Porcelain veneers have many benefits, and provide solutions for a variety of concerns.

  • Improved appearance. Porcelain veneers are commonly selected by patients for cosmetic enhancement because they can provide natural-looking coverage. These restorations are made of porcelain because this material closely mimics the appearance of natural tooth enamel. The ceramist that fabricates the porcelain veneer will make sure that it matches the smile by matching color, shape, and size of the existing teeth.
  • Support healthy tooth structure. The thinner a tooth’s enamel, the more likely it is to be damaged. With porcelain veneers, an extra layer of strength is added to the natural tooth. These restorations also preserve as much healthy tooth enamel as possible.
  • Minimizing the need for alternative treatments. Misaligned or gapped teeth may be improved with the use of orthodontic treatment. However, porcelain veneers can quickly solve this problem without invasive procedures. Imperfections regarding the alignment and shape of a tooth can be addressed using porcelain veneers instead. The results occur much faster, and the existing teeth are not impacted.
