Strengthen Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers
Why You Should Strengthen Your Smile With Porcelain Veneers
When you hear about cosmetic dentistry, you often hear about the wonderful smile transformations. Patients can improve the appearance of their smile with so many different cosmetic dentistry options. Porcelain veneers are easily one of the most popular, and for a good reason. So, why porcelain veneers? Well, they offer so many benefits, and the patients can achieve their smile goals. Kissing Camels Family Dentistry is happy to help you decide which option is best for you. In this article, our Colorado Springs dentists share why you should strengthen your teeth with porcelain veneers.
Patients love coming to our dental office in Colorado Springs because our veneers are porcelain. This not only strengthens your teeth but also gives you a cohesive-looking smile. You can choose the size, shape, and color of your veneers. Patients who have significantly stained front teeth, gaps, and chips in their teeth may be candidates for porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers may also go on after root canals.
Patients who require root canals on their front teeth frequently experience dental damage. Trauma to the tooth raises the likelihood of a root problem in the future. Regrettably, dentists cannot foresee when a patient will require root canal therapy. Our dentists usually use dental crowns to replace teeth that have received root canal therapy, but front teeth are a little different. When a front tooth requires a root canal, the entire crown of the tooth does not need to be replaced. The downside with this method is that the enamel often fades away, leaving the tooth practically transparent. Enamel wears down to the point that the tooth chips or even breaks in patients who have undergone root canals on their front teeth. Additionally, patients who clench or grind their teeth are also more likely to damage their front teeth. Veneers are the most effective technique to restore function and attractiveness to your front teeth.
How Porcelain Veneers Work
Dr. Cody Boals and Dr. Alexa Johnson can complete your veneers in two simple appointments. To make the restoration fit naturally, they first prepare the teeth by removing a little piece of the enamel. They take impressions for the permanent restoration after they have prepared the teeth. The permanent veneers are subsequently applied by bonding the restorations to the teeth. Your new teeth will seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth. Our friend, Dr. Kacos, a dentist in Shreveport, LA, points out that porcelain veneers cannot stain. So, you can achieve a bright, beautiful smile for many years to come!
Other Advantages of Porcelain Veneers
- Stronger Teeth – The most significant advantage for patients with weak enamel is that veneers strengthen the teeth. You can avoid having damaged teeth when you choose to strengthen your teeth with porcelain veneers.
- Veneers Are a Great Investment – Although veneers can be pricy, they last for a very long time. Veneers can last from 10-20 years, depending on if you take care of them.
