A New You!

Do you ever feel that almost everyone has a perfect smile? While most people do not have a close-up worthy smile, many are turning to porcelain veneers to correct or enhance their teeth. Veneers generally require two visits to the dental office. Unlike other cosmetic procedures, there is little to no recovery time necessary.  Healthline notes that once the anesthetic wears off, it is possible to eat and chew normally, so there is virtually no recovery time needed following the procedure. Porcelain veneers are a wonderful investment because they last a long time, with some studies suggesting that this type of veneer can last up to 20 years with proper care. They also look and feel almost identical to your natural teeth. 

 

Here are a few do’s and don’t’s to protect your investment:

 

  1.     Do not chew hard objects.
  2.     Keep your veneers clean by brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist regularly. 
  3.   Use a whitening toothpaste.
  4.   Refrain from opening anything with your teeth. 
  5.   Eat wholesome foods and keep yourself healthy. 
  6.   Wear a mouthguard to prevent grinding of your teeth.


Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to boost your confidence with a show-stopping, symmetrical smile. Changing your smile can have a huge impact on your appearance, and has the added benefit of improving alignment.
