What are Porcelain Veneers?
Think of porcelain veneers as shields. Shields that protect your teeth, give them strength, and improve their appearance. They’re thin shells of medical-grade ceramic, custom-made for each patient. They’re attached to the front surfaces of your teeth, hiding any imperfections and giving you that movie star smile.
Why Choose Porcelain Veneers?
Three reasons. Aesthetics, durability, and convenience. First, they look natural. Porcelain has a translucent quality that mimics natural tooth enamel. It’s also resistant to staining and will stay white and bright longer than your natural teeth. Second, they’re durable. Stronger than your natural teeth, porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years with proper care. Third, it’s a quick and minimally invasive procedure. Two to three visits, and voila, you’re flaunting a brand new smile.
Getting porcelain veneers is simpler than you think. It usually involves three steps over two visits. A consultation and examination. Preparation of your teeth. And finally, the bonding of the veneers.
During the consultation, your dentist will examine your oral health and discuss your aesthetic goals. Next, your dentist will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the veneer. Lastly, the veneer is bonded to your tooth using a special adhesive.
Maintaining your porcelain veneers is as simple as taking care of your natural teeth. Brush twice a day. Floss regularly. Visit your dentist for routine check-ups. And remember, while veneers are stain-resistant, they’re not stain-proof. Limit your intake of coffee, tea, and red wine. Or better yet, quit smoking.
Porcelain Veneers can be a game-changer. A confident smile can open doors, create opportunities, and boost self-esteem. Welcome to the world of cosmetic dentistry. Welcome to Oasis Dental. Where you’re not just getting a treatment, you’re getting a transformation.
