If you are wondering what treatment or treatments would suit you best, here at Mai Dentistry we can meet with you and evaluate the condition of your present dentition then help you set up a complete plan for flawless rejuvenation beginning with porcelain veneers.
Rejuvenate your Teeth
Dental veneers are an ultra thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Placing a porcelain veneer is a minimally invasive dental procedure because to accommodate the thin shell of porcelain, about ½ millimeter of tooth enamel is removed. This is to guarantee that the porcelain veneer lies flush with the other teeth. Dental porcelain is a glass-like cosmetic dental material with similar color, transparency, and light-emitting properties as natural teeth, and can be used to:
- Whiten teeth
- Repair chipped or broken teeth
- Straighten misaligned teeth
- Lengthen worn teeth
- Repair uneven or irregularly shaped teeth
- Hide other minor imperfections
How to Care for Veneers
Your teeth become discolored as you age due to the foods you eat and the beverages you drink. They can also become discolored due to certain medications or simply due to age and the fact that your enamel thins out showing more of the off-white dentin material. You can keep your veneers in great shape the same ways you would keep your natural teeth in great shape, by doing the following:
- Avoid foods that stain such as blueberries, coffee, tea, cola, and red wine.
- If you eat any of the above or other dark foods or drinks, rinse your mouth with water immediately after.
- Don’t chew your nails, pen tops, ice, or hard candy.
- Brush and floss daily.
- Attend your dental checkups and professional cleanings.
