Porcelain Veneers

Springfield Porcelain Veneers - Cover Damaged & Stained Teeth - Hide Imperfections

If you are hiding your smile due to dental imperfections, you may benefit from the attractive, minimally-invasive option of porcelain veneers.  Dr. Schlosser recommends these discreet, yet durable, estorations for their ability to emulate natural dentition while providing long-lasting results.

What are the Benefits of Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers offer the advantage of cosmetically improving your dental condition, while also conserving a great deal of the healthy, existing structure of your teeth. As a result, Dr. Schlosser may recommend veneers as an alternative to crowns when moderate treatment is more appropriate to achieve desired results. 

In particular, porcelain (the material from which veneers are crafted) has unique properties that make it ideal for this use. Porcelain can endure normal dental function, even when thin pieces are placed.  Additionally, a variety of genuine tooth shades and shapes can be reproduced with porcelain veneers. At our Springfield dental office, Dr. Schlosser and his team have treated a variety of aesthetic issues with porcelain veneers, ultimately leading to some dramatic smile make-overs. 

Some of the conditions patients want to correct using veneers:

  • Crooked or misshapen teeth
  • Worn or chipped teeth
  • Extensively stained or discolored teeth
  • Inappropriately sized teeth (too large or small)
  • Undesired spaces between teeth

Receiving Porcelain Veneers

Placing customized porcelain veneers does not significantly impact underlying dental health and composition. To accommodate for the additional thickness of a veneer, your teeth will be moderately prepared prior to placement. An impression, or mold, of your teeth will also be taken, so your veneers are fabricated to the specific dimensions of your smile. Dr. Schlosser and his experienced team will work with you to choose custom veneers that optimize your natural smile.

Following placement, you will receive care instructions, including recommendations for your daily brushing and flossing routine. Regular follow-up visits with Dr. William T. Schlosser are also recommended to enhance the longevity of your porcelain veneers.
