For many years, Dr. Thomas K. Hedge has been providing the good people of Cincinnati with excellent cosmetic dental treatment. One of his most popular procedures continues to be porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers is widely considered to be the most effective form of dental tooth bonding treatments available.
In this safe and simple procedure, Dr. Hedge removes a half-millimeter of enamel from the front surface of a patient's tooth. From there, Dr. Hedge proceeds to expose the front surface of the tooth to phosphoric acid. Eventually, a porcelain veneer is added to the tooth, which gives your tooth the appearance of a natural tooth.
An excellent solution to common dental problems, porcelain veneers can help replace lost tooth structure, straighten teeth, change the color and shape of a tooth, and close teeth spaces. Additionally, as porcelain veneers are made of a ceramic material, a patient does not have to worry about picking up permanent stains on their porcelain veneers. Although a porcelain veneer is not a substitute for a tooth, it is able to capture and reflect light, thus ensuring that it has the look and feel of a natural tooth.
