At Dentist of Aventura, we know how much your smile’s appearance can affect your confidence.

That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in – specifically, porcelain veneers. Whether you have a chipped tooth, a few misshapen teeth, or some noticeable discoloration, Dentist of Aventura can help you find the best solution to boost your self-esteem.

Porcelain veneers are a cost-effective way to improve your smile without resorting to more invasive treatments, which is ideal if there’s nothing wrong with the health of your teeth.

What are
Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are essentially ceramic mouldings or covers we place over your natural teeth. Your dentist files down the natural surface of your tooth, takes impressions of your mouth, and fits a veneer to suit the shape, size, and color of neighbouring teeth. While patients choose veneers for many reasons, the common reasons why patients opt for veneers include:

  • Disguising a broken or cracked tooth
  • Making teeth look straighter
  • Covering a misshapen tooth

They’re easier to fit than crowns or dental implants. And, you shouldn’t experience any pain, which makes veneers appealing for cosmetic purposes.

What are Porcelain Veneers
Made From?

Porcelain veneers are made from a ceramic-based (porcelain) material. These veneers are designed to look natural without compromising the strength or functionality of your teeth.

Teeth under veneers can still decay, though, so it’s crucial you maintain a regular brushing schedule to protect the delicate tooth structures underneath – otherwise, the veneers could fail.

How Long Do
Porcelain Veneers Last?

It all depends on how well you care for them and the condition of your teeth beforehand. But, as a guideline, porcelain veneers can last around 10-15 years or so. However, if the veneers are chipped or broken, they’ll need to be replaced earlier than this.

Aside from brushing and flossing, here are some tips for keeping your veneers intact for longer.

  1. Avoid grinding your teeth – this puts unnecessary pressure on the fittings.
  2. Steer clear of hard foods like nuts and candy, which can break your veneers.
  3. Don’t use your teeth to open things. Use your hands or another tool instead.
  4. Wear a mouthguard if you play contact sports to reduce the chances of breaking a veneer.

Another way to improve the longevity of your porcelain veneers is by keeping a close eye on them. Schedule a checkup every six months to identify potential weaknesses in your veneers before they become more troublesome.

Do Porcelain Veneers

Over time, certain food and drink can stain your veneers and diminish their appearance. To avoid staining your veneers, brush your teeth after consuming things like wine and coffee.
Avoid smoking since it can stain your veneers a light brown or yellowish colour.
Soda can erode your veneers prematurely and cause them to stain more easily, so limit how much sugary soda you drink.
If you’re concerned about the appearance of your veneers, contact your dentist for more advice on how to care for them.
