Do you ever run across someone who has a beautiful bright smile and think, “Jeez Louise! I want that type of smile.” It is more than possible at any of our four Tippit Dental locations in Memorial, Cypress, Brenham and Bellville, and it’s porcelain veneers that make it easy.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are shells that are made of porcelains and are bonded to the front of teeth. They are customized to fit perfectly on existing teeth. Seeing that they are made of porcelain, it ensures that they will be durable and long-lasting. Patients who receive these veneers don’t need to worry about chewing and conducting typical oral functions.
Porcelain provides the perfect shade of coloring as well. Our dentists create these teeth so that they will look natural and impressive, but won’t stand out for the wrong reasons. Our goal with rejuvenating anyone’s smile is to make certain that their teeth look and feel great.
These veneers typically last around 15 years on average, but have been known to last more than 20 years. This means that your beautiful smile can be one to keep for life.
Taking Care of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers should be maintained just like natural teeth. This means brushing, flossing and rinsing daily. The porcelain won’t receive cavities, but this doesn’t mean that the exposed areas of the teeth won’t decay. The backs of the teeth are still exposed to tartar and plaque, which removes enamel. Enamel is the layer of protection that teeth have, and once that is gone, cavities can form much easier.
The plaque buildup can also impact the gums, causing periodontal disease. If cavities and gum disease take place, then the porcelain veneers will be null and void. So if you receive veneers, be sure to treat them like natural teeth and practice proper oral hygiene.
