If you don’t like the appearance of your teeth or your smile in general, porcelain veneers may be an option for you. What are veneers? A thin wafer of porcelain, everlastingly bonded to a tooth to conceal its color, shape or positioning in the mouth. Although getting porcelain veneers is an aesthetic procedure, it is a serious dental procedure too. So please think before you get them!
Here are some of the reasons why porcelain veneers might be the right choice for your restorative dental needs and esthetic desires:
Strong Teeth & Gums As Prerequisites
You must have strong teeth and gums in case you want dental veneers. Resolve issues such as cavities, gingivitis, and plaque buildup before getting veneers. No wonder, great oral health is important for the implementation and long-lasting results of veneers.
Conceal Esthetic Problems
Porcelain veneers must be used as a solution to esthetic issues, involving morphologic modifications. These include modifications in relation to tooth shape, color, contour, size, volume, and positioning.
Desiring Smile Transformation
Ceramic veneers can transform a person’s smile for good. New developments in equipment and technique allow dentists to create personalized veneers that seem so natural. You may have a favorite trait about your smile, so communicate your needs to the dental practitioner beforehand. This way, your veneers can be developed to align with your preferences.
People Suffering From Microdontia
Microdontia produces unusually little teeth with large gaps, making your smile imperfect and impacting your confidence. People with microdontia may prefer to opt for porcelain veneers to gain a beautiful smile that goes with your appearance.
Needing Tooth Restoration
Porcelain veneers are the perfect material for dental restoration when teeth are terribly damaged by fractures, large caries, or old restorations. Also, if your teeth have undergone endodontic procedures, veneers may be the right choice for you. With porcelain veneers, replacing the damaged or missing incisal edge is possible. All in all, veneers may be directed to have a place in the restoration of loss of tooth structure because of disease or trauma.
Remember, porcelain veneers need regular maintenance that includes regular dental checkups and deep cleaning with our staff at Abingdon Box Hill Family Dentistry. Steer clear of chewing crunchy lollipops and ice cubes and practice daily brushing and flossing. You must also know the correct brushing and flossing techniques and recommended brands.
