Porcelain Veneers in Longmont
Are you satisfied with the appearance of your smile? If the answer is no, you may be hiding your smile, even if you don’t realize it. Even small chips or staining can diminish the appearance of your teeth and make you feel self-conscious. And when you don’t smile with confidence, it can make you seem unapproachable or unhappy.
The good news is that there are excellent cosmetic options such as porcelain veneers that allow you to customize the smile you’ve always dreamed about.
How do Porcelain Veneers Enhance My Smile?
A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is customized to fit over your tooth and cover imperfections such as:
- Small fractures or chipping
- Stains or discoloration
- Size or shape discrepancies
- Gaps or spaces between teeth
- Slight misalignment issues
A veneer can repair one or two teeth, but they are best when utilized to enhance your entire smile as they can change the shape, size and shade of your teeth. They are durable and stain resistant, so you won’t have to worry about whitening your teeth as they don’t discolor at the rate a natural tooth does.
Are Veneers Right for Me?
Porcelain veneers work well for many patients; however, the first place to start learning about your options is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dan. He will take the time to discuss your desires and concerns about your smile with you to help determine which treatment options will best suit your needs.
Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers have the potential to last for 10 to 15 years with the right home care and regular checkups with your Longmont dentist. You’ll be able to brush and floss your veneers as you always have, and you’ll want to be sure to use a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste.
If you’ve suffered from bruxism, or teeth grinding in the past, talk with Dr. Dan about your options for wearing a night guard while you sleep in order to protect your teeth and veneers from damage.
It’s also good to keep in mind that your porcelain veneers can be damaged just like your natural teeth; so be careful about biting directly into hard foods or chewing on ice or your fingernails. Treat your veneers as carefully as you would your natural teeth.
