Porcelain veneers are a popular way to achieve a beautiful “Hollywood” smile. If your teeth have significant cosmetic issues, porcelain veneers can be a great solution, as they can address a number of different issues at once. Porcelain veneers are long-lasting and durable, and can be a wonderful investment for the right candidate.
If you are interested in porcelain veneers, contact Austin cosmetic dentist Dr. John Schmid today at 512-329-5967 to schedule your initial complimentary consultation.
Porcelain Veneers Are Versatile
Versatility is one of the main draws of porcelain veneers. With this one treatment, you can address many cosmetic issues with the teeth, including:
- Chips and cracks
- Gapping or crowding
- Uneven length
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic treatment meant for the front, visible teeth. If you have problems with your back teeth, a dental crown will probably be a better option. If you have concerns regarding both your front and back teeth, Dr. Schmid can help create a custom treatment plan involving different treatments such as crowns, invisible braces, or other cosmetic or functional dental work.
Porcelain Veneers Are Easy to Maintain
Another benefit of porcelain veneers is that they are very easy to maintain and take care of. You don’t need to follow any kind of special diet, and there’s no special cleaning instructions necessary. As long as you take care of your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene habits, your porcelain veneers will last for years.
Good oral hygiene habits include:
- Brush and floss every day
- Visit Dr. Schmid for a general checkup and deep cleaning every 4 or 6 months
- Avoid bad habits such as biting on pens, chewing ice, or using your teeth to open things
- Don’t eat too many overly sticky, hard, or sugary foods
Porcelain Veneers Are Long-Lasting
Porcelain veneers can last for a lifetime under the right circumstances. If your dentist is experienced in porcelain veneer placement, you are a good candidate, and you know how to take care of your teeth, you shouldn’t need to worry about having to replace your veneers.
The main reasons a veneer may need to be replaced are tooth decay and accidents. If your natural tooth underneath the veneer becomes weakened due to decay, the veneer won’t have a strong surface to stay attached to and may fall off. This is why it’s important to maintain good dental hygiene and visit Dr. Schmid regularly.
Accidents can happen to anyone without warning. If you are in an accident which damages your porcelain veneers within 5 years of having them placed by Dr. Schmid, he will replace the damaged veneer free of charge. See our porcelain veneers guarantee for more information.
