One of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer to help perfect your smile is porcelain veneers. A porcelain veneer is a thin layer sheet of ceramic that can be layered onto your teeth. They can be used to correct things like chips, cracks, discoloration, and issues with alignment. They essentially give you the perfect tooth and can be custom-designed to look just like all the rest of your natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers are fitted over your existing teeth and can erase any flaws that you want to be covered up. We offer two types of veneers in our office: traditional and minimal prep. For traditional veneers, we remove a small amount of your tooth enamel to place them. With minimal prep veneers, no enamel is removed. They are placed on your teeth as they are and are not permanent. When you come to see us, we can go over the pros and cons of each type of veneer and evaluate which one will better meet your needs.
To care for your dental veneers and keep them as bright as possible, it’s important to continue brushing and flossing regularly. This will stop the buildup of plaque and bacteria and will keep everything functioning smoothly. It is also a good idea to cut down on food and beverages that are likely to stain your teeth. These can include coffee, wine, soda, etc. Cigarettes and tobacco products may also stain your veneers.
If you have a tooth that you are cosmetically unhappy with, porcelain veneers may be a good investment for you. Veneers can give you smooth, white, perfect teeth in no time at all.
