Would you like a more pleasing smile? There are certain things that you can do at home in order to improve your smile, like brushing regularly, flossing, and protecting your teeth from harm. However, there may come a time when these things just aren’t cutting it. Porcelain dental veneers are a great option for individuals in Little Rock who would like to improve their smile. The best way for you to decide if porcelain veneers are the right option for your smile is by learning about them and scheduling a consultation with our cosmetic dentist in Cabot.
Many people in Little Rock wonder what will happen to their teeth after they get dental veneers. They wonder if they will ever get cavities. The porcelain veneer is going to be bonded to your existing tooth. This does not mean that there is a higher chance of decay happening. As long as you take good care of your porcelain veneers by doing things like regularly brushing and flossing, you can expect to have a healthy mouth. One of the things that you can do for your overall dental health as well as to maintain your veneers is to make sure that you do not consume too much sugar.
Most individuals can expect porcelain veneers to last anywhere from seven to about 20 years. There are a variety of factors that will affect the life of the veneer. Of course, it is not like the veneer is a living object. However, it will be affected by changes that happen in your mouth.
The great thing about using porcelain dental veneers is that they do not stain in the same way that your teeth stain. So if you regularly drink coffee or wine, you do not have to worry about the veneers staining. Of course, you want to look after all of your teeth to be sure that your natural teeth do not start changing color while your veneers maintain their color.
There are a wide variety of things that veneers can be used for. When you come in for your consultation at the office of Samuel F. Jirik, DDS in Cabot and explain your dental situation, we can help you to decide on the best option for your particular needs.
