Dr. Margarita Panajoti educates patients about the benefits and limitations of porcelain veneers, used to effectively rejuvenate the appearance of stained, damaged, or misaligned teeth.
Marlborough, MA – Porcelain veneers can be an effective – and durable – solution to a wide array of tooth imperfections. Cosmetic dentist Margarita Panajoti, DMD uses this innovative treatment to boost her patients’ confidence in their smiles. With the ability to correct cracks, chips, gaps, and even minor tooth misalignment, porcelain veneers have become a popular choice for smile rejuvenation at New England Dental Group.
“Even seemingly minor tooth imperfections can significantly impact a person’s self-image,” says Dr. Panajoti. By placing the thin layer of porcelain material over the affected teeth, she explains that patients can achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile while also preserving most of the original tooth structure. In addition, Dr. Panajoti says the shape and shade of these veneers can be custom-tailored to match the patient’s existing teeth for a smile that looks seamless.
Dr. Panajoti highlights that while most patients are good candidates for porcelain veneers, there are a few exceptions. According to the cosmetic dentist, “If you have severely misaligned teeth or a tendency to grind your teeth, a dental crown may offer a better solution.” Porcelain veneers may not be ideal for patients who clench or grind their teeth, as the added stress may cause the veneer to fracture. Dr. Panajoti also notes that teens engaged in heavy contact sports may prefer to wait until they are older to receive porcelain veneers when the risk of accidental damage is decreased. In addition, for patients struggling with extreme tooth misalignment, treatments such as Invisalign® may be more effective for achieving a straight and even smile. However, a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Panajoti is the only guaranteed way for patients at New England Dental Group to determine their individual candidacy for porcelain veneers. For most of Dr. Panajoti’s Marlborough and Southborough cosmetic dentistry patients, porcelain veneers can resolve a multitude of dental concerns while providing long lasting results and a revitalized smile.
