Have you ever heard of porcelain veneers? These thin restorations are placed over the teeth, covering the fronts and sides and transforming the smile in the process. In today’s blog, we’re going to talk about how veneers can benefit our Gary, IN, patients.
The Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
- They Look Natural: We use porcelain for a number of reasons. In addition to strength and durability, the material also contains stain-resistant properties and can be shaded to better match surrounding teeth. The material also mimics the translucent appearance of tooth enamel. Altogether, this makes for a restoration that looks natural and blends with the rest of your smile.
- Veneers Address Multiple Cosmetic Issues at Once: We first make room for them by removing thin layers of enamel. We then take detailed impressions, which allows us to design and fabricate them. When placed, they completely change the tooth, allowing us to repair chips and breakage, lengthen worn down teeth, and even fill gaps between the teeth. We even use them to correct the appearance of minor misalignment. They offer a solution to a wide array of both cosmetic and restorative issues.
- Routine Care Keeps Them Bright: Caring for them is easy, you simply maintain the same level of care as you would for a natural tooth. For example, you should be brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing every night before bed. We also suggest seeing us every six months for a checkup, so we can monitor them, and a cleaning, so we can remove plaque and make sure your veneers stay strong and beautiful.
