Wow the World with Porcelain Veneers

Would you love to wake up with a smile that makes you giddy to show it off to the world? Having healthy teeth and gums is a great way to maintain a smile you can be proud of, but if there are imperfections in your teeth, all the dental hygiene in the world cannot fix them. Thankfully, that is where cosmetic dentistry comes in. Porcelain veneers are one treatment option that is relatively quick to complete, and that can correct a number of issues with your teeth, from staining that is untreatable through professional whitening, to shape problems (like vampire teeth), or spaces between your teeth.

Fix Concerns and Smile More Confidently

Your dentist will first discuss your smile concerns with you, and then help determine the best form of treatment. If that is veneers, the dentist will help design a set of porcelain veneers which will correct your esthetic imperfections. In many cases, this only requires that veneers be applied to a few teeth. Most dentists send measurements to ceramicists to have the veneers made, then schedule an appointment to attach them when the veneers have arrived. Because modern veneers are very thin, little preparation is needed, meaning the dentist will not need to severely reduce the enamel of your teeth.

Porcelain’s Strength Makes for Long-Lived Results

Because modern dental porcelain is quite strong and stain-resistant, veneers are a long-lasting form of cosmetic enhancement, and they can be cared for the same way as your natural teeth. You will need to avoid highly abrasive toothpastes and use a gentle toothbrush, but you can brush the veneers as you do your other teeth, making hygiene convenient and simple.

You’ll also want to avoid bad dental habits that might bend or break the veneers, such as chewing on ice or hard candies, which should be avoided even without veneers. Finally, attending regular professional cleanings can also help keep your newly enhanced smile looking its best.
