What Can Veneers Fix?
Porcelain veneers can be used to correct a number of different cosmetic flaws in your smile. Consider getting porcelain veneers from your cosmetic dentist in Lincoln Park if you want to cover these flaws:
- Chipped or fractured teeth
- Teeth that are unusually worn
- Teeth that are permanently stained or discolored
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Teeth that are irregularly spaced
How Do I Get My New Smile with Porcelain Veneers?
The process begins with an open-minded, judgment free consultation and dental checkup. One of our three expert dentists will make sure there aren’t any underlying issues before beginning to prep your teeth for veneers. After all, we want your teeth to be healthy and beautiful.
Once your oral health has been examined, your dentist gently removes a slim layer of tooth enamel. This step is vital to ensuring that your veneers lie evenly and last for years to come. We’ll protect your teeth until your next appointment when your custom veneers have been created and are ready to be placed.
After a couple of weeks, you’ll return to our office for placement. You can look forward to a long-lasting beautiful smile if you keep good oral hygiene at home and consistently take time to visit our office for routine dental checkups and cleanings.
How Do I Maintain My New Smile?
Keeping your new and improved smile is easy when you follow these simple steps:
Floss and Brush
Above all, you must floss your teeth at least once and brush twice daily. This is a part of your dental routine at home that should never change.
Take Care of Your Gums
If gum disease sets in, your gums can recede away from the tooth. This exposes the edge of the veneer and compromises the seamless appearance of the overlay. Make sure you’re staying on top of your gum health!
Even though dental porcelain is stain resistant, the material used to adhere the veneer to the natural tooth is not. Avoid exposing the veneer to dark colors in foods and drinks like wines, coffee, and red pasta sauces.
Maintain Regular Dental Check-Ups
It’s important to both the health and aesthetics of your smile to visit your dentist! We properly clean your teeth, check your veneers, and address any dental issues as soon as we encounter them.
