Patients who choose porcelain veneers for their long list of benefits will find themselves on track for a beautiful smile transformation. In addition to improving the brilliance of your smile, veneers improve whiteness, cover cracks and chips, fill gaps between teeth, and allow you to customize the shape and size of your teeth. You may wonder, however, how long those improvements will last and if your decision to choose this particular cosmetic treatment will yield the long-term advantages you desire. Fortunately, chances are good that learning about the following benefits will allow you to feel completely confident about your decision:
You may wonder if you will get home, love your smile, and then find quite quickly that your veneers begin to look lackluster. Wonder no more. Second to your natural teeth, veneers are prized for their extraordinary durability. As long as you are caring for your smile every day like you would your natural teeth, you can feel certain veneers will provide you with years of beauty.
Care Is Simple
You will not need to purchase any special tools to clean your veneers. Instead, you may continue using a soft-bristle toothbrush and toothpaste to brush your teeth twice daily. We also suggest that you floss your teeth once daily, as well, like we recommend for teeth without veneers. The one word of advice is to avoid anything particularly harsh or abrasive, such as certain toothpastes or alcohol-based mouthwashes.
Stains? Don’t Worry About Them
Choosing porcelain veneers only to find out they stain easily would be quite the drawback. Lucky for you, veneers are known for their ability to resist staining. Since you will be brushing your teeth and flossing every day, you can rest easy knowing your smile will continue to look white and vibrant. Go ahead and eat your favorite foods, sip on coffee, and enjoy your stunning cosmetic transformation.
