Important Tips To Care For Your Porcelain Veneers By Dr. Pinnix on October 21, 2013

Porcelain veneers are restorations that can instantly improve your smile. Cosmetic dentists can apply the veneers in just one or two dental visits. Porcelain is a durable material that is designed to last for a very long time. In fact, the veneers may last 10 years or more if one takes care of them. Porcelain veneers are a great option for people who have teeth that are discolored, gap or chipped.

Benefits Of Dental Veneers
One of the reasons that cosmetic dentists prefer to use dental veneers is because they offer a number of benefits. Porcelain veneers look and feel natural. No one will be able to tell whether a person is wearing dental veneers. Furthermore, the veneers attach directly to the teeth.

How Are The Veneers Applied?
If you are interested in getting veneers, then you will have to meet with a cosmetic dentist. Your cosmetic dentist will determine whether veneers are the right choice for you. After that, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to make the veneers. The veneers will be placed on the teeth during the second dental visit. Before the dentist bonds the veneers to the teeth, he or she will check to make sure that they fit properly.

Taking Care Of Your Veneers
There is no downtime associated with getting veneers. You will be able to return to your normal activities immediately. Veneers do not require special care. You take care of your veneers the same way that you would take care of your normal teeth.

Brushing, flossing and rinsing will help your veneers last for a long time. It is also important for you to make sure that you see your dentist regularly for a professional cleaning and examination. Regular trips to the dentist will prevent you from developing tooth decay and gum disease.
