Wilmington, DE Dentist Dr. Conlin Restoring Smiles with Veneers
Dr. Karen C. Conlin is proud to announce that she offers porcelain dental veneers to patients in her Wilmington, DE dental practice. As a cosmetic and restorative dentist, Dr. Conlin has the training and experience to provide porcelain veneers to patients who wish to restore a whiter, healthier, more even look to their smile.
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic and restorative dental solution that are designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Veneers create an immediate improvement in the appearance of a smile and are a minimally invasive treatment option.
Patients with healthy teeth that are chipped, cracked, crooked, or mildly stained can benefit from veneers. Patients whose teeth are uneven or have gaps may also find veneers are a cost-effective solution for improving the look of their smile.
Dr. Conlin offers custom-crafted porcelain veneers that are fitted precisely to cover the front surface of the tooth. Because porcelain is a semi-translucent material, the tooth continues to have a natural healthy appearance with the veneer in place. Veneers are chosen with care to match the natural teeth around them, to ensure optimal aesthetic results.
Once placed, porcelain veneers are a strong, stain-resistant, and long-lasting cosmetic dental solution. However, porcelain dental veneers need ongoing dental care, just like natural teeth. They should be brushed and flossed regularly and normal dental exam and cleaning schedules should be maintained. When cared for properly, veneers can last a lifetime.
There are some additional factors to consider before choosing veneers. First, it is common to experience some sensitivity to hot and cold foods and beverages for a few days following the placement of veneers. This is generally mild and unlikely to last more than about a week.
Second, while porcelain is a strong and durable material, it is recommended to avoid activity that will put great stress on the veneers, such as chewing excessively hard foods or using the teeth to attempt to open a nut or bottle. Finally, any patient who has issues with bruxism (grinding) should discuss this with Dr. Conlin before deciding whether to have dental veneers placed.
