Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. With veneers as an alternative, there is no reason to put up with gaps between your teeth, teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, or crooked. A veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct these maladies, simply and quickly and help you achieve a beautiful smile!
Will They Look Like Normal Teeth?
When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and are highly resistant to stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Because they are thin, light can shine through them and they take on the natural color of the underlying tooth.
How Durable Are Porcelain Veneers?
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. Your Doctor will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.
Maintenance of Your New Veneers
Brush and floss as you normally would. Dont be afraid that you will damage your veneers by doing so. A good home care regimen will insure the best aesthetic success of your veneer.
You may experience some sensitivity to hot and cold after placement of your veneers. Sensitivity is totally normal and should dissipate in one to two weeks. If sensitivity persists, please call the office.
If you are a known clencher or grinder (bruxer), please be sure to let us know, as we may recommend an Occlusal Guard (night-guard) for you to wear to minimize stress placed upon your teeth while you sleep.
We hope that your new veneers fulfill your esthetic goal. With proper home care and scheduled visits, they are sure to provide you with a beautiful smile for years to come.
