Are you struggling with permanent staining on the teeth that does not improve with professional-grade bleaching? Are you dealing with broken or chipped teeth that negatively affect the appearance of the smile? Are you interested in addressing areas where there are gaps between teeth without having to undergo extensive orthodontic therapy? If any of these sound like you, now is a great time to speak to Dr. Stanley Levenson of Levenson Smile about the benefits of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers, which are sometimes referred to as dental veneers, are ceramic facings that are custom-made to bond over the front of a tooth to disguise problems such as staining, misalignment, gaps, breakage, and other problems that can have an impact on the appearance of the smile. When patients want to achieve that “unforgettable smile,” they often take the time to speak to Dr. Stanley Levenson near the Worcester area about using veneers for enhancement.
Dr. Stanley Levenson offers two types of veneers in his practice including traditional porcelain veneers and DURAthin veneers.
Conventional veneers are not reversible. They require the removal of a thin portion of enamel from the front facing of the tooth. Then, impressions are made and the veneers are fabricated by a ceramist with specific instructions regarding the size, shape, and color. The veneers are received and bonded into place over the teeth for beautiful results.
DURAthin veneers are also known as “no prep veneers” as they can be placed without the removal of natural tooth enamel. This also ensures that the procedure can be reversed with the simple removal of the DURAthin veneers to expose the natural tooth underneath. DURAthin veneers are not as strong as porcelain veneers, but may be a wonderful alternative to a patient who is uneasy about making a permanent decision regarding their smile as they would with a traditional veneer.
Dr. Stanley Levenson is proud to offer both of these solutions for patients interested in rejuvenating their smile quickly and easily. Veneers are a great option for covering up problem areas within the smile and achieving that unforgettable smile in an affordable and effective manner.
