If you are concerned over discoloration, a misaligned or chipped tooth, or the gaps between your teeth, then pursuing cosmetic dental treatments might be the right course of action for you to take. Porcelain veneers are frequently done for minor cosmetic issues. Veneers can address issues with color, shape, size and positioning. If you’re interested in this cosmetic treatment, come to talk it over with one of our dentists in Palm Coast.
Porcelain teeth veneers are constructed of thin layers of delicate dental porcelain that mimics tooth enamel. These veneers are adhered directly to the surface of the tooth, improving the aesthetic appearance of the smile. They are typically used to correct cosmetic issues with teeth there are in overall good shape. These issues include:
No matter why you desire to have porcelain veneers, our staff in Palm Coast is willing to help you.
If you are like many people, you are probably wondering what porcelain veneers cost. Your bill will be determined by things like the veneers you choose and the number of veneers you are having placed on your teeth.
The porcelain veneers procedure is straightforward and painless. To ensure that your veneer fits perfectly, your dentist will take a mold of your mouth. A thin layer of the tooth’s enamel will then be scraped off. How much enamel needs to be taken off will depend on the brand and type of veneer being placed on the tooth. Once your veneer is firmly in place, you will not even be able to notice that it is there.
Veneers and crowns are both utilized to correct cosmetic appearances. They also adhere to the underlying tooth in the same way and are made of the same material. However, the main difference between the two treatments is that a veneer adheres to the front surface of the tooth while a crown fits the entire tooth. Due to the way that they fit over the tooth, porcelain crowns are also known as “caps.”
When a tooth has structural damage caused by age, injury, decay or teeth grinding, a crown is placed over it. In order to properly fit the crown, the dentist will need to remove some of the tooth’s enamel. In addition to covering the tooth, the crown will also strengthen the tooth. Crowns are so strong that they can withstand the pressure that the molars exert. This is why they are commonly used for back teeth in need of cosmetic or structural treatments.
If you avoid injury to your teeth, your veneers will last for decades. In addition to avoiding injuries, you should frequently brush and floss.
Lumineers® are an ultra-thin brand of dental veneer. These veneers are so thin that little to no enamel needs to be removed from the tooth in question in order to place the veneer. In addition to being thin, these veneers are incredibly strong. If they are properly cared for, they may be able to last for more than 20 years.
Daily brushing and flossing is required, as is the avoidance of using your teeth to open things like bags or bottles. If you frequently grind your teeth while you are sleeping, you will need to wear a night guard or retainer to prevent your veneers from becoming damaged.
