If seeing someone pull out their camera sends you into panic mode, it might be because you’re not confident in the way your smile looks. You don’t want the state of your teeth to be preserved forever. Fortunately, there is a way to improve your smile, so you don’t get embarrassed of it ever again: porcelain veneers in Fremont. Let’s look at exactly how veneers can boost your confidence in your smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain designed to fit over the front surface of your teeth. The material they are made of is durable and resistant to stains, unlike natural teeth. They can be customized to match the shape, size, and color of your surrounding teeth.
How Does the Veneers Process Work?
Veneers take two appointments to install. At the first visit, your dentist will remove a very thin layer of enamel from the teeth where your veneers will be placed. Then they will take an impression of the inside of your mouth, create a mold, and send that off to a ceramic lab, where your permanent veneers will be crafted. In the meantime, your dentist will fit you with temporary veneers to protect your teeth and let you get used to how the veneers feel.
After a couple weeks or so, your permanent veneers should be ready. You will return to the office and your dentist will bond them to your teeth with a special cement. Voila! Your smile will be beautiful, and your confidence will be restored.
How Can Porcelain Veneers Improve My Smile?
Here are a few of the flaws in your smile that porcelain veneers can help fix:
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Slightly crooked teeth
By using veneers to conceal these imperfections in your smile, you can feel much better about being in front of a camera, and you won’t feel the need to shy away. Your confidence will show for years to come!
How Can I Take Care of My Veneers?
Taking care of your veneers is very similar to taking care of natural teeth. Be sure to regularly brush, floss, and see your dentist for checkups. Use fluoride toothpaste to avoid irritating the veneers. Also, if you think you may be grinding your teeth at night, ask your dentist about a mouthguard to protect your veneers.
If you have any of the flaws in your smile listed above, you may benefit greatly from porcelain veneers. To improve confidence in your smile, ask your dentist if veneers are right for you.
