Common Porcelain Veneers Questions
Will I Need A Porcelain Veneer Or A Dental Crown?
Determining whether a veneer or a full-coverage dental crown is needed depends on the extent of the dental issue and the remaining healthy tooth structure. Dental veneers can give you the desired cosmetic improvements for teeth with imperfections that you cannot correct with a teeth whitening. However, a tooth that is significantly undersized, misshapen, chipped, or darkly stained usually requires a full-coverage crown.
Will My Veneers Look Natural?
Porcelain veneers are manufactured from the highest quality dental ceramics and will therefore blend naturally with your teeth. In addition, dental porcelain is resistant to stains and discolorations, keeping your new smile vibrant, white for years.
How Long Do Porcelain Veneers Last?
Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin customized dental facings that become strong and durable once Dr. Joe Ayoub bonds to the underlying teeth. With adequate hygiene and routine dental care, veneers provide a cosmetic solution that looks and feels completely natural and long-lasting.
Just as harmful dental habits can affect your natural teeth, the same practices can also damage your porcelain veneers. Avoid biting your nails, chewing on ice, hard candies, opening bottles, or any other hard objects with your teeth. This is important to prevent chipping, cracking, or dislodging a porcelain veneer. Also, remember to protect your smile while playing sports by wearing a properly fitted mouthguard.
Tooth grinding or bruxism is another vital consideration in dental care. If you commonly clench your jaw or grind your teeth, consider wearing a night guard to help protect your new teeth or discuss other options with Dr. Ayoub.
How Many Dental Veneers Will I Need?
As versatile as they are beautiful, our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Joseph Ayoub, can apply porcelain veneers to a single tooth needing cosmetic improvement or multiple front teeth to dramatically improve your smile’s look. Whatever the case, porcelain veneers provide highly satisfying results to create a stunning smile that you’ll feel confident sharing with the world!
What Will Porcelain Veneers Fix?
Among the many benefits dental veneers offer is their ability to mask various imperfections simultaneously. In addition to your dental veneers covering discoloration and stains on the front surface of a tooth, Dr. Ayoub will customize the shape and size of a veneer to improve the tooth’s contours and dimensions. Not only do porcelain veneers create a whiter and more vibrant smile, but veneers can also lengthen or widen your tooth, close minor gaps, and address other alignment issues.
Can I Maintain My Normal Oral Hygiene Routine At Home?
Once in place, your veneers are also easy to care for and maintain. You can protect and preserve your new, beautiful smile by simply brushing, flossing, and visiting Dr. Ayoub’s office for periodic checkups.
