If you have cracks or gaps in your smile, consider the advantages of porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are created based on impressions of your teeth. The contouring and color of the porcelain shell will mimic your natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers not only look natural they feel natural as well. The ceramic covering conceals stained or cracked teeth so you can eat and talk usually.
Porcelain veneers can be used to fix various dental issues, including missing teeth, gaps between teeth, stained or discolored teeth, and chipped, broken, or misshapen teeth.
Drinking too much coffee can stain your veneers, and biting down on hard foods can cause your veneers to chip if you're not careful. Dental veneers can last between 10 to 15 years if given proper care.
Veneers do not require special care, but be sure to brush twice a day and floss daily to reduce plaque and tartar buildup. Make sure to schedule regular Dental check-ups with your dentist to maintain good oral health.
Porcelain veneers are less invasive than other types of dental Restorations, such as dental crowns. Your dentist will need to shave a minimal amount from the surface of your teeth to make room for your veneers. This procedure requires little to no anesthesia.
