Dental Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells often made with porcelain dental material. They are fixed to the front side of your natural teeth to cover your smile’s minor imperfections.

Who should get porcelain veneers?

To determine whether or not you are a candidate for porcelain veneers, we will thoroughly assess your oral health and discuss your cosmetic dental needs. Porcelain veneers can be used to repair some tooth imperfections, including:

  • Discoloration
  • Misalignment
  • Chips and Breaks

Benefits of Porcelain Veneers

Besides resulting in an enhanced smile, porcelain veneers offer multiple benefits, such as:

  • They are a great solution for hiding minor chips in teeth.
  • Dental veneers are made to blend in with your teeth, allowing your smile to look more natural.
  • They can be used as an alternative to brighten your smile if teeth whitening treatments are not providing optimal results.
  • Veneers are stain resistant, so your new smile will maintain its brightness for much longer. (However, please keep in mind that the consumption of coffee, wine, tea, or other food and drink items with powerful agents can, in fact, increase the likelihood of staining.)

Maintaining Your Dental Veneers

It is important that you keep up with healthy dental habits to maintain the life of your porcelain veneers. We recommend the following practices to keep your new smile intact:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day to reduce plaque buildup and decrease your chances of tooth decay and periodontal diseases.
  • Limit the consumption of caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and artificial colored food items to keep your pearly whites bright!
  • Quit smoking; this negative habit is among the most notorious culprits for teeth staining and oral cancer.
