They are an excellent way to enhance the appearance of the smile and can be used to correct a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as gaps, chips, and stained or yellowed teeth. Porcelain veneers are also very durable and can last for many years with proper care. If you are interested in learning more about porcelain veneers or any of our other cosmetic dentistry services, please contact our office today. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and help you determine if veneers are right for you.
Why Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your smile. They are a thin, custom-made shell of porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of your tooth. Veneers are an ideal solution for correcting many different types of dental imperfections including:
- Stained or yellowing teeth that cannot be treated with teeth whitening
- Unusually small or worn-down teeth
- Slightly crooked or misaligned teeth
- Unevenly spaced teeth
- Noticeable gaps in your smile
Porcelain veneers are also very durable and will last for many years with proper care.
How are Porcelain veneers Placed?
Once we have determined that porcelain veneers are right for you, we will take impressions of your teeth and send them to the dental laboratory where your custom-made veneers will be created. In the meantime, we will provide you with temporary veneers to wear. At your next appointment, we will remove the temporaries and bond the thin porcelain shells to your teeth, making any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable, natural fit. You will then be able to enjoy your brand-new smile!
Benefits to porcelain veneers
Dentists have long been using porcelain veneers to help patients achieve the smiles of their dreams. Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored ceramic that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. They are an ideal solution for correcting a wide variety of cosmetic dental concerns, including gaps, chips, and stains. Porcelain veneers are also very durable and resist staining better than natural teeth. And because they are customized to match each patient’s unique smile, they look completely natural.
How to care for Porcelain veneers
If you have porcelain veneers, it’s important to take care of them so that they last. Here are some tips from New Providence Dentistry:
- Brush at least twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Be sure to brush gently so as not to damage the veneers.
- Floss daily to remove plaque and debris from between your teeth.
- Visit your dentist regularly for professional cleanings and checkups. Your dentist will also be able to spot any problems with your veneers early on and make necessary repairs or replacements.
By following these simple tips, you can keep your porcelain veneers looking great for years to come!
