More About Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are wafer-thin oral restorations that look like the surface of your teeth. They're made of resistant porcelain and adhere to the surface of severely stained, or damaged teeth. They're a great idea if you have minor chips and cracks, and small gaps between teeth you'd like to hide. If the damage is severe and gaps are too large, you may need a reconstructive procedure or orthodontics because veneers are a cosmetic treatment option.
How are veneers installed?
- Your dentist first evaluates your teeth. They must examine your teeth to make sure there aren't any underlying issues that need to be resolved first, like a cavity.
- Your dentist will then take an impression of your teeth to send to a lab where custom-made veneers will be made.
- Your Garden City dentist will remove some enamel off the surface of your teeth to make it easier to place the veneers. They remove enamel so teeth are properly aligned and to avoid any sort of protrusion.
- Then, you're done. All you need to do is make sure you go over how to properly care for veneers to ensure they last.
How do you care for veneers?
It goes without saying that you should brush and floss every day but make sure you don't apply too much pressure with your soft-bristled toothbrush. And avoid hard and sticky food.
