Foods That Brighten Enamel

Noone likes to flash their smile when it’s afflicted with teeth that are chipped, asymmetrical or discolored. We all like to dream of that perfect smile that we can wear with confidence and wish there was a way to eliminate all the imperfections our teeth have. Thankfully this is possible with porcelain veneers, an easy and effective way to repair small physical imperfections and misalignments in your teeth with a simple restorative procedure. If you’re wondering if veneers are a good choice for you, read on.

Are Porcelain Veneers A Solution For My Oral Concerns?

The way that porcelain veneers work begins with the removal of a thin layer of enamel from your teeth to make room for the adhesion of a layer of durable ceramic. They can’t be used to correct every dental imperfection under the sun, but they’re perfect for correcting small irregularities and misalignments of your teeth. Those who can most benefit from veneers have the following conditions:

  • Teeth with gaps
  • Teeth that are chipped
  • Teeth that are uneven
  • Teeth that are stained
  • Teeth that are cracked
  • Teeth that are slightly misaligned

These veneers can be a perfect solution to issues like those listed above, and can even correct multiple of these issues at once in patients where they exist. They won’t work for patients who are suffering from severe dental issues, teeth that are missing or are severely damaged.

How Do I Know If Porcelain Veneers Are Good For Me?

The best way to determine if your oral health concerns can be corrected through the use of porcelain veneers is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. Your first clues are going to be that you have good dental health outside of these imperfections you’re concerned about. This means no gingivitis, no periodontal disease, and no concerns about grinding or clenching your teeth as the veneers won’t be capable of putting up with the strain. If you’re free from these concerns then it’s time to make that call for a consultation.

Are Porcelain Veneers Hard To Maintain?

One of the great things about porcelain veneers is that they’re made of a material that is highly stain resistant. As a result you just need to maintain regular oral hygiene practices including brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush, flossing regularly, and not skipping the mouthwash. With porcelain veneers and a regular dental hygiene routine you’ll have beautiful shining white teeth for years to come.
