Porcelain Veneers for a Stunning Smile

Do tooth imperfections have you covering your smile? Have you ever watched “red carpet” coverage and wondered how Hollywood has so many dazzling smiles?

The answer is porcelain veneers.

If you dream of having a stunning Hollywood smile, Dr. Karl Jobst and his caring team at Grand Lake Dental can help you achieve it.

Porcelain veneers are the quick, one-fix solution to all your cosmetic tooth problems. In fact, they are the number one choice for patients who desire a quick solution for an impressive smile. 

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of your teeth. They correct many flaws and offer the perfect solution to patients who want to achieve a dramatically improved smile quickly.

Veneers can be placed on one tooth, all the teeth, or any number in between. They can be shape-and color-matched to the remaining natural teeth, or they can be whiter to give you a brighter smile. Also, the translucence and light-reflecting properties mimic those of natural teeth. The result is a perfect, natural-looking smile.

Veneers can cover a multitude of tooth imperfections.

The most common reasons patients choose veneers include:

  • Severely discolored teeth

Teeth whitening can be highly effective at brightening your teeth, but there are limitations. For instance, the whitening only affects the surface of the teeth. Therefore, if you have deep stains, such as from tooth trauma, medications, or excessive fluoride, teeth whitening may not give you the results you desire. 

  •  Misaligned, crooked teeth or gaps between teeth

While orthodontics is also an excellent option for these issues, the results take a long time. Veneers can give the appearance of perfectly straight teeth and fill in any unwanted gaps in a matter of weeks.

  • Chipped, broken, misshapen, uneven, worn-down, or unusually small teeth

Cosmetic bonding can also cover some of these, but the results can be limited. Dental crowns offer more options than bonding, but if several teeth need improvement, veneers may be the best option.

The Advantages of Porcelain Veneers

The dramatic aesthetic advantages of porcelain veneers are obvious, but there are other advantages as well.

Some of the advantages include:

  • Natural tooth appearance
  • Color and shape chosen to best fit you, your face shape, and remaining teeth
  • Porcelain is stain-resistant and durable
  • Gums tolerate porcelain
  • With proper care, they can last for many years

How to Properly Care for Porcelain Veneers

While porcelain veneers are durable and stain-resistant, you will want to take proper care of them to keep them lasting and looking beautiful for many years to come.

Proper care includes:

  • Maintaining excellent oral health

It would be a shame to blemish your beautiful smile with dental decay or gum disease. You want to commit to good oral hygiene and keep up with routine dental visits.

  • Avoid chewing on hard items

Even though veneers are durable, they can break or chip with enough force. Things like ice, pen caps, and even fingernails can damage veneers.

  • Do not grind your teeth

Teeth grinding can put tremendous pressure on your teeth and damage veneers. If you grind your teeth, you may want to get a custom-made mouthguard to wear at night.

  • Limit drinks and foods that stain teeth

The porcelain is stain-resistant, but natural teeth are not. The bonding material that holds veneers in place may also become stained.

  • Skip mouthwash that contains alcohol

The alcohol in mouthwash can impair the bonding that holds veneers in place.
