At our Stamford dental center, we can help answer that question. Porcelain veneers have been popular in recent years due to their ability to give you a perfect smile that lasts. Along with looking like normal healthy teeth, porcelain veneers are stain-resistant and strong. Our veneers are made of the highest quality material and bonded to your teeth with the best technologically advanced bonding agents.
The ideal candidate for porcelain veneers has a considerable amount of tooth enamel, practices good oral hygiene, and has one or more minor cosmetic issues. You can trust Newfield Dental to guide you through your decision so you can have faith that you made the right choice.
In order to be eligible for our porcelain veneers, you need to have enough tooth enamel. Tooth enamel thickness is important because veneers adhere to your enamel. Before we can adhere the veneer to your tooth we must perform enameloplasty to prevent overcrowding.
Enameloplasty is a painless procedure that consists of shaving your tooth enamel down so a veneer will comfortably fit over it. The veneer needs to bond to your tooth enamel, so your enamel has to be thick enough to undergo shaving and still have enough left over to hold the veneer securely. At Newfield Dental, our Stamford dental center can help you determine if you have enough tooth enamel to support the porcelain veneers.
If you are interested in porcelain veneers, you need to have good oral hygiene. Oral hygiene is important for many reasons but, to get veneers, your teeth and gums need to be healthy. If your teeth and gums are not healthy enough, additional restorative procedures may be necessary to make you eligible for porcelain veneers.
It is also important to practice good oral hygiene after you have gotten porcelain veneers to keep your smile pearly white. Properly cared for veneers can stay looking new for over ten years. We also strongly advise against using your new beautiful teeth as tools to tear open bags as this is not considered proper care. Your dentist will give you expert advice and care instructions to make your new smile lasts as long as possible.
Most patients that are good candidates for our porcelain veneers have at least one minor cosmetic issue with their teeth. Whether it be severe stains, a chipped or cracked tooth, a slightly crooked tooth, or a combination of these, porcelain veneers can fix it. Other available options will likely involve multiple different procedures while getting porcelain veneers is just one procedure. Veneers can make your smile visibly perfect and boost your confidence.
Porcelain veneers have become a trend in cosmetic dentistry because of their life-like beauty and versatility. They are durable when cared for properly, much like your natural teeth, and are resistant to stains. To be the ideal candidate, you must have enough tooth enamel, practice good oral hygiene, and have at least one cosmetic issue you are looking to rectify.
