Porcelain Veneers Can Help to Fix Minor Defects, Making it Possible for Your Smile to Look its Best.
Porcelain veneers are cosmetic solutions that may be recommended for those interested in restoring their teeth’ color and appearance. They recreate the natural look of teeth while providing strength and flexibility comparable to natural tooth enamel.
Porcelain veneers can be used to:
• Re-shape teeth
• Improve the look of your teeth due to stains
• Fix teeth that are chipped, fractured, crooked, or broken
• Close gaps between teeth
Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit over your natural teeth. The foundation of your natural teeth must be strong and healthy to be a candidate. Veneer results can be very drastic and instantly improve the appearance of your smile. Since veneers are individually created for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, veneers can resist coffee, tea, and cigarette smoke stains.
Veneer preparation may involve the removal of a small amount of tooth structure. An impression is taken and sent to the lab to fabricate the custom veneers. During this time, temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth. Temporary surfaces are fragile and must be treated gently during eating and cleaning.
Once your permanent veneers arrive, they are bonded to your teeth. Avoid chewing hard foods with your veneers.
Porcelain veneers are very durable and can last for years when cared for properly. Continue brushing, flossing, and keeping up with regular professional cleanings to add to the longevity of your dental veneers.
