Different people have individual goals for various aspects of their lives, including their smiles. At Harmony Dental Health we strive to help all of our patients reach their oral health goals and uncover their best smiles. For some, veneers are a helpful option. When properly applied and cared for, they can last for many years. Porcelain veneers offer a natural look and are strong enough to provide full functionality.
Veneers are a versatile form of treatment and are used to take care of several different oral issues, such as:
- Stained or Discolored Teeth
- Crooked Teeth
- Gaps Between Teeth
- Broken Teeth
- Misshaped Teeth
Some people may have one of the aforementioned issues, or a few, and porcelain veneers can help to address each one. The porcelain material not only looks like a tooth, but it is also smooth and strong. This helps to prevent plaque from getting into crevices as with regular teeth, as well as avoid staining. Therefore, the porcelain can sustain a long life, as long as it is cared for through the maintenance of good oral health habits.
How it Works
In short, veneers are thin pieces of material that are stuck to the tooth. They can be thought of as fortified covers that help to protect the tooth from further damage, or close in gaps between teeth. In doing so, porcelain veneers also help to create a natural look and feel, so they function as regular teeth would and do not require any additional care beyond common oral care methods, particularly brushing and flossing.
Talk to a Cosmetic Dentist Today About Porcelain Veneers
This wafer-thin material is custom fitted to each tooth by your cosmetic dentist to ensure that it will provide the proper coverage for that tooth. The right color must also be chosen so that it will match correctly with your teeth. Therefore, if you are interested in a whitening treatment you should discuss this with your cosmetic dentist first, so that your veneers can match the final color of your teeth. Once the proper porcelain material is chosen and it is shaped for your tooth, it is permanently applied using a dental seal. Depending upon the extent of your procedure, it can be completed in one sitting or a few appointments.
