Porcelain Veneers Can Transform Your Smile
Do you find yourself covering your mouth with your hands whenever you laugh or smiling with a closed-mouth smile? Especially if you have an outgoing personality, putting up with a smile you don’t feel confident about can be a daily uphill battle.
Today, it’s easier than ever to improve your smile with personalized cosmetic dentistry and versatile porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry service that is used to reverse the signs of damage or staining and bring out the best in your smile. It is amazing to see a patient going from refusing to smile to beaming with joy thanks to this treatment. As your dentist in West Palm Beach, the opportunity to transform your smile and confidence is one of the main reasons I chose to practice dentistry in the first place!
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin coverings made of a porcelain material that looks exactly like natural teeth. They are bonded directly to the front of the teeth, and they are used to correct a wide range of imperfections, such as stained, chipped, irregularly shaped, or crooked teeth, as well as any gaps or uneven spaces between the upper front teeth.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
Long-lasting, strong, and natural looking, porcelain veneers do not stain easily and do not require as much enamel to be removed from the surface of the teeth as a typical dental crown or bridge.
What You Can Expect When Getting Porcelain Veneers
If you have chosen porcelain veneers for your smile, the treatment begins by carefully preparing the teeth by removing the smallest layer of enamel. Then, an impression is made of the teeth that will serve as a mold for the dental laboratory to fabricate your veneers. At the following visit, the veneers will be placed on the teeth, polished, adjusted, and then bonded to each tooth.
Aftercare For Porcelain Veneers
It is especially important to maintain a good dental hygiene routine and keep up with your regular visits to the dentist after getting veneers. Porcelain veneers are strong and resilient by design, but it is important that you never to use your teeth as “tools” to open containers or bite into hard or man-made objects. With the proper care, your brand new smile with veneers can last anywhere from about 7 years to as long as 20 years and longer.
