Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are a special type of cosmetic restoration that covers the fronts of teeth, much like false fingernails cover natural nails. They are about as thin as a contact lens, but have a beautiful translucency that is nearly indistinguishable from the enamel covering your teeth. Once porcelain veneers have been applied, they can last up to 10 to 15 years or longer with conscientious care.
Porcelain veneers offer a wealth of benefits, including:
• A complete smile transformation with just one procedure
• Improved confidence
• Versatility that can cover just about any cosmetic problem
• Protect natural teeth from further staining
• Stain resistance
• Instant orthodontics
• Stronger restored teeth
• Natural appearance
• Long life span
• Easy maintenance
Veneers can usually be applied in a few visits. First, we will plan your smile with you to create a look that makes you look and feel better. Teeth will usually need to be prepared then, so that the veneers fit comfortably over the teeth. Last, we will apply the veneers right over the teeth using a powerful bonding cement that is cured with a special light.
You will need to brush and floss regularly, just like you brush and floss your own teeth. Also, remember to schedule your checkups every six months to keep your teeth healthy and to stop any other issues that could cause future troubles. Good dental hygiene and avoiding bad dental habits, such as smoking, can maximize the lifespan of your new smile.
