Dentist in Aberdeen
Porcelain veneers are aesthetic solutions that may be recommended for those who are interested in restoring the color and appearance of their teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used to:
- Re-shape teeth
- Improve the look of your teeth due to stains
- Fix teeth that are chipped, fractured, crooked or broken
- Close gaps between teeth
Porcelain veneers are custom-made to fit over your natural teeth. The foundation of your natural teeth must be strong and healthy in order to be a candidate. Results from veneers can be very drastic, and instantly improve the appearance of your smile.
Veneer preparation involves the removal of a small amount of tooth structure. An impression is taken and sent to the lab to fabricate the custom veneers. During this time, temporary veneers may be placed on your teeth. Temporary veneers are very fragile and need to be treated gently during eating and cleaning.
Once your permanent veneers arrive, they are bonded to your teeth. Avoid chewing excessively hard foods with your veneers.
Porcelain veneers are very durable and can last for years when cared for properly. Continue brushing, flossing and keeping up with regular professional oral hygiene care to obtain optimal oral care.
