Grinding, chewing, and possibly genetics can cause your teeth to wear down over time. Age along with certain foods and drinks can contribute to tooth discoloration and erosion.
There are many solutions available to correct or camouflage these cosmetic issues, but the most affordable, versatile, and noninvasive choice is porcelain veneers. With porcelain veneers, you are choosing one option to correct or hide many cosmetic issues in one step, which is far more affordable and less time consuming than choosing several different options to achieve a great smile.
Porcelain veneers camouflage the following:
- Misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth unequal in height
- Worn teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Damaged Teeth
What Are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin, shell-like covers permanently placed over your teeth, creating the appearance of a whiter, straighter, and healthier smile.
Dental veneers are so versatile and smile optimizing that dentists use them on patients who have suffered mouth trauma from accidents or sporting injuries. Veneers enhance your smile and take years off your appearance without compromising natural tooth structure.
Maintaining Your New Smile
Maintaining dental veneers requires regular dental exams and professional cleanings. Brushing and flossing at least twice per day and keeping your gums healthy also contribute to maintaining your dental veneers.
If you grind your teeth, ask your dentist about nightguard options because grinding puts wear and tear on your teeth and your new veneers. A nightguard is a device that you wear at night to help prevent teeth grinding while you sleep.
