When your smile is disfigured by decay, abrasion, chipping or imperfect development, an option that you should consider is porcelain veneers.
If you've been searching for a dentist that focuses on veneers and cosmetic dentistry, then A+ Dentistry is for you. We are qualified cosmetic dentists who have helped many patients get the gleaming smile they've always wanted through veneers.
Porcelain Veneers are a thin, semi-translucent "shell", custom made to fit precisely over an existing tooth. Because veneers are stronger than simple bonding, they are also more resistant to stains and chipping. However, it is important to maintain regular oral hygiene and the visit the dentist regularly for routine cleaning and exams. Porcelain veneers are a more conservative alternative to dental crowns since they require less removal of the tooth's original surface. With porcelain veneers in place, cosmetic dentistry patients can expect straighter and whiter teeth.
Following the Porcelain Veneers
If you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep, a mouth guard might be recommended to protect your teeth. Porcelain veneers are quite strong and can withstand considerable force when a patient bites down, but they may fracture or break if used inappropriately. Patients should therefore avoid hard or sharp foods such as biting ice, your fingernails or thread which cause undue stress. Dental veneers should be cared for in much the same way as normal teeth; this includes daily brushing, flossing, and periodic check-ups with a dentist. Given the proper care, porcelain veneers can preserve a smile for decades.
