Choose Porcelain Veneers for a Brighter Smile

dca-blog_article-18_porcelain-dental-veneers-benefits

In the world of cosmetic dentistry, there are many options for making a smile more beautiful. One of the most popular ways to enhance a tooth is to apply a dental veneer. Some veneers are made from composite resin, but translucent porcelain veneers offer several advantages. While composite veneers are removable, porcelain veneers are permanent. With good oral hygiene and regular preventative dental care, they can last for up to 25 years. Porcelain looks and feels like a tooth’s natural surface. It rarely requires maintenance, and it is more stain resistant than other materials.

5 Problems Porcelain Veneers Can Solve
– Porcelain veneers can correct many common cosmetic dental problems, including:

  1. Stains and discoloration
  2. Unsightly spaces between teeth
  3. A chipped or broken tooth
  4. Slightly crooked teeth
  5. Minor bite irregularities

Getting Dental Veneers
– During the first visit, the dentist will perform a comprehensive dental exam to evaluate the patient’s needs and overall dental health. The procedure of applying porcelain veneers includes several steps and may require more than one visit. First, the tooth is prepared. A temporary veneer is fitted while a dental laboratory creates a permanent porcelain veneer that matches the patient’s natural tooth color. During the final visit, the temporary veneer is removed, and the permanent one is bonded to the tooth’s surface.

Ongoing Care for Veneers
– With good oral hygiene and regular dental care from an affordable dentist, porcelain veneers can provide gorgeous smiles for decades. Routine check-ups can ensure that minor problems such as nighttime tooth-grinding or problems with adjacent teeth are discovered and treated promptly. To learn how porcelain veneers can transform your smile, make a dental appointment today to discuss your options.
