Porcelain veneers are a versatile solution for those areas of your smile that you want to perfect. They are also effective with minor functional imperfections. While they can correct several issues at once, they are also easy to care for.
Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth to correct issues, such as:
- Chips and cracks
- Gaps in your teeth
- Uneven tooth size
- Irregular tooth size
If you want to fix one or more of these dental imperfections with your teeth, the best thing to do is schedule a consultation with Dr. Whitmore and his team.
Porcelain Veneer Procedure
Your porcelain veneers procedure can be done quickly. The process involves having a minimal amount of enamel removed from the affected teeth where the veneers will be placed. This ensures the veneers will fit seamlessly. The wafer thin shells are then bonded to your teeth. They are matched to your natural tooth color, so no one will be able to tell that you have them. Your smile will look natural, healthy, and strong for many years.
Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers
Caring for your porcelain veneers to make sure they last as long as possible does not require any extra steps beyond your daily hygiene regimen. The porcelain is stain resistant, but that does not mean they cannot stain. You should also avoid toothpastes with baking soda to avoid damaging or scratching the porcelain veneers. Brushing after every meal is important, as well as flossing to reduce tartar buildup should be added to your regimen if you are not already doing so.
