Even if you have worn braces to straighten your teeth, further changes to the jawline, bone and gum tissue, or teeth may result in some uneven spaces between your teeth. Bad oral hygiene habits, such as not flossing, not brushing your teeth, or consuming foods or drinks that discolor your teeth, may result in the need for some cosmetic remedy. Even if you are working hard to keep your teeth healthy with good oral hygiene, sometimes life or other circumstances beyond your control can affect your teeth leaving you with a smile that could use some touching up. Porcelain veneers can offer a great way to address your concerns and perfect your smile!
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that are used to conceal discolored, cracked, or improperly spaced teeth. The veneers are affixed to the front of your teeth in a procedure very similar to dental bonding. After the veneers have been bonded to your teeth securely, this material becomes strong and durable. This means that the veneers not only make your teeth look better, they help protect your teeth as well. Porcelain veneers have been used for many years, and they have been proven as an excellent treatment option.
If you have diseased or decaying teeth or gums, Camas Dentistry dentists will not want to use porcelain veneers on your teeth and may instead recommend other cosmetic fixes. However, if unhealthy dental conditions do not exist or have been adequately resolved, then veneers can be placed without a problem. In some cases, patients may not have enough enamel or natural material to hold veneers, and individuals who grind or clench their teeth may chip or break the veneers if the grinding or clenching issue is not dealt with first. If this is the case then, again, Camas Dentistry dentists may instead alternative cosmetic fixes that best fit your situation.
In most cases, porcelain veneers have many benefits over other types of bonding techniques. One of the main benefits of choosing porcelain is their beautiful look after they have been applied successfully. Porcelain veneers resist stains, which is helpful if you enjoy drinking beverages that stain teeth, such as wine, coffee, or tea.
