Choose Ceramic Veneers for Perfect Teeth
Since each mouth is different and requires custom work, we first consult with you to see if ceramic veneers are the right choice for your cosmetic dentistry needs. Ceramic veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear white again, and they are perfect for repairing overlaps, minor twists, and small gaps in your teeth.
Considerations Regarding Veneers
We always make sure our patients know that the placement of dental veneers is a permanent process. As part of each procedure, we remove some of the original tooth enamel so that the covering is able to bond completely with your natural teeth. We can make adjustments to new dental veneers, but you can never return to the original condition of your tooth once we perform the process.
If you are concerned about the removal of enamel before the placement of porcelain and ceramic veneers, you may want to consider resin instead. Because of their thin construction, resin veneers require less removal of the surface of teeth.
Make Your Dental Veneers Last
Veneers are crafted to last anywhere from five to 10 years, but you can extend the life of your dental veneers by properly taking care of them. No special care is required, but you should engage in an oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing.
Veneers are designed to resist stains, but you may want to avoid food and drinks that are notorious for leaving stains on teeth, such as red wine and tea. Let us know if you have a habit of grinding your teeth while you sleep. We will make a bite guard for you to wear so that you can protect your veneers from damage.
