Dr. Robert Penterson and his associates, dentists in Midlothian, VA, improve patients' smiles with dental veneers.
MIDLOTHIAN, VA, January 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Dr. Robert Penterson, Dr. Stephen Booth and Dr. Lynn Penterson Booth, Midlothian, VA dentists, are happy to announce the availability of veneers to their valued patients. Veneers are thin layers of material that are joined with the existing tooth surface and matched to blend with the rest of your teeth. The results are stunning, yet natural looking and can be used to correct many common imperfections of the teeth, including severe staining, chips, fractured or broken teeth and gaps.
For patients in Midlothian, veneers are constructed from either porcelain or a resin composite material. Both methods will require a small amount of tooth enamel to be scraped away, which is what makes veneers a permanent procedure. While either material will produce dramatically beautiful results, porcelain veneers last almost twice as long as resin.
Veneers made from porcelain take several visits to complete because they require molds to be created from impressions of the teeth. Resin veneers, on the other hand, can sometimes be completed in one visit. The resin material is first painted onto the tooth surface, dried with a bright light until it hardens, and then polished and shined to resemble natural teeth.
Your specific needs and concerns will be discussed during the initial consultation with a dentist in Midlothian, VA at Penterson & Booth. A plan will then be made outlining what size, color and materials will best suit your needs. The actual application of the veneers is a fairly simple process that is completed in several steps, which will vary depending on the method that is right for you.
Midlothian veneers are a good alternative to crowns, which are like "shells" that sit over the entire tooth and require considerably more removal of the tooth surface. People with medication or age- related staining area also good candidates for veneers as these types of discoloration cannot be corrected with standard tooth whitening procedures. Veneers are not recommended for the sole purpose of ordinary whitening, however, because removal of enamel is permanent and can occasionally result in increased tooth sensitivity.
Those with severe tooth decay or gum disease may not be candidates for veneers or bonding as the gums and bone need to be healthy for the procedure. Chronic tooth grinders or jaw clenchers may also want to consider an alternative to veneers, as those actions can cause the veneers to crack and chip.
Dr. Penterson, who is excited to offer residents of Midlothian veneers, stated "If you are considering veneers please feel free to call for an appointment where we can discuss all of your options". Penterson & Booth is open Monday through Thursday from 7:30am to 5pm and Friday 7:30am to 2pm, and can be reached at (804) 739-1600 For further information please visit his website at: http://www.pentersonandbooth.com/
