Caring for Your Porcelain Veneers
- Posted on: Jun 4 2014
Porcelain veneers offer an excellent treatment option for many patients whose dental needs lean more toward the cosmetic than the structural. Chips, stains, and disproportionately sized or shaped teeth can often be corrected using this safe and simple procedure. And caring for them is easier than you might think. The Tysons Corner cosmetic dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics are pleased to offer this cosmetic treatment to our patients.
Porcelain veneers are thin wafers of dental-grade porcelain that we custom-build just for you and attach to your teeth using a medical adhesive. They are specifically designed to fit your unique oral anatomy and can cover up a wide range of cosmetic problems.
Caring for porcelain veneers is about as easy as it gets. Simply brush, floss, and follow any additional steps in your dental health regimen. You’ll probably want to stay away from abrasive toothpastes that could wear down the porcelain with long-term use. Patients who suffer from nighttime clenching or grinding may need to sleep with an oral appliance in place to prevent damage. Your dentist will discuss all of this and more during your consultations.
If you are ready to learn how porcelain veneers can give you that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, please contact the Tysons Corner cosmetics dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics today, or call us at 703-957-7069 to schedule a consultation.
