The use of porcelain veneers is amongst the most efficient ways of recreating your smile. Fractured teeth, deformed, tarnished and segmented incisors can be corrected using porcelain veneers. The fact that this technique works extremely well in solving several tooth problems means that it tends to be pricey and therefore patients fear making use of it for short term periods.
The advantages of porcelain veneers is that they possess a familiarity towards the patient’s normal teeth. Moreover, the hygiene upkeep practices required with the use of porcelain veneers is extremely minimal. They are unaffected by stains and this is certainly an advantage over human teeth. And these veneers can serve their purpose for quite some time if they are properly looked after. Listed below are the techniques of enhancing their durability:
- NEVER GRIND THEM ON HARDY NON-FOOD PRODUCTS
Using porcelain veneers on rigid materials might lead to their destruction exactly just like the way it happens in human teeth. Fragmenting and shattering may take place although the possibility is very low. Crunching hard materials on the same spot will weaken the veneers over time. They also have a tendency to wear our faster when being used to break ice and hard foods that require a vigorous bite. The same can be said though of ordinary teeth as well.
- LOOKING AFTER YOUR ORAL HYGIENE
Bacterial infection as a result of food deposit accumulation is often a likely occurrence with the use of veneers just like in normal teeth & therefore proper cleaning of the same fashion should be adhered to. Proper dental care, for example, daily cleanings of your teeth and going for regular dentist evaluations ensure infections don’t happen. If proper hygiene isn’t maintained, tartar formation is inevitable and you’ll need to check in with a dentist for tartar removal or a deep cleaning of your teeth. Keep visiting your dentist for semi-annual cleanups and you can be sure that you’ll experience far less dental ailments than those with poor dental hygiene and oral maintenance.
- CONSUME JUST ABOUT ANY KIND OF DIET
One benefit that comes with the veneers is that you don’t have to be troubled regarding what kind of foods that you can eat and which ones are to be avoided. Veneers will not be tarnished like in the case with human teeth after being used on some foodstuffs and drinks, the principal culprit being consumption of coffee. Dental bonding, used to adhere and repair broken teeth, is known to tarnish unlike with the use of porcelain veneers. As much as dental bonding is cheaper compared to the veneers, it has the effect of losing its color and distorting appearance of the teeth over time. Porcelain veneers will not blemish in color and therefore your teeth uniformity and color will remain intact.
