If it seems like people with movie star-perfect smiles are seemingly everywhere you look, it is no coincidence! Cosmetic dental technologies and materials have benefited from many advances in recent years, and treatments like porcelain veneers are not just more affordable than ever before, but also offer better results. At Cannon Dental in Salt Lake City, UT, Dr. David Cannon understands the power of a smile and uses natural-looking veneers to hide imperfections and transform your smile so you can feel great about showing it off to others.
What are porcelain veneers and how do they work?
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dental treatment that consist of ultra-thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are custom-designed by Dr. Cannon to improve the appearance of your smile while still retaining the characteristics that make it uniquely yours. Once they are on your teeth, they are incredibly durable, and the use of modern dental ceramics that closely mimic natural tooth enamel makes it nearly impossible for others to tell that you have veneers.
Issues porcelain veneers can hide
Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile and can hide a number of imperfections that might be making you self-conscious about your smile. Patients choose veneers for:
- Small teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
How long do veneers last?
Patients who take good care of their teeth with regular brushing and flossing at home and routine hygiene visits can expect their veneers to last for at least a decade, if not longer. In addition, they are stain-resistant, so you can enjoy your favorite foods and beverages such as coffee and tea without worrying about them becoming discolored over time.
To avoid damage or breakage, it is important to avoid biting on hard items, such as ice or pencils, and using your teeth to tear or cut objects. However, if damage does occur, we can usually replace just the affected veneer.
