How to Care for Your Porcelain Veneers By on November 22, 2011

There are plenty of ways that we can enhance the overall health and appearance of your smile. Some of these treatments may be more involved than others, of course, but know that we always strive to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment to meet your needs. We will use the latest techniques available in Philadelphia cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and general dentistry to help make your smile as beautiful and healthy as possible. That is just par for the course for our dental team, though.

About Porcelain Veneers

One treatment option that is remarkably effective and popular for dealing with various dental problems is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are able to mask imperfections of a smile simply and without major treatment required. These thin shells of dental ceramic are adhered to the front part of the teeth to conceal chips, cracks, stains, and minor misalignment. This versatility makes them one of the bet cosmetic dentistry options out there right now.

Good Candidates for Porcelain Veneers

The best candidates for porcelain veneers are people who have otherwise healthy teeth that just need to be enhanced cosmetically. These patients should have a good understanding of what treatment entails as well as realistic expectations about what porcelain veneers are able to do. Dr. Bruce Wilderman, a skilled cosmetic dentist serving Philadelphia, will be able to assess your candidacy in full during your visit.

Maintenance and Aftercare: Dental Hygiene

One of the reasons that Philadelphia porcelain veneers are so popular is that they are rather easy to care for, all things considered. There is no special maintenance required on the part of the patient.

Basically, we ask that patients merely brush their teeth at least twice a day and floss regularly. This basic dental hygiene will help prolong the life of your porcelain veneers and also just keep your teeth healthy in general.

Maintenance and Aftercare: Dental Visits

Of course, you know you can’t always do everything alone, which is why you come into our office twice a year for your regular checkup. During these checkups, we can check on the condition of your porcelain veneers and make adjustments and alterations as needed.

Alternatives to Porcelain Veneers

Since not everyone is a good candidate for porcelain veneers, there are other therapies that you can consider. For example, tooth whitening can dramatically brighten the color of your smile, and Invisalign® can be used to straighten your teeth and look your best. These can be discussed in more detail during your visit here. We’ll be more than happy to discuss which treatment option or combination of treatments will best meet your needs. Remember, getting a smile makeover means that you will get the smile of your dreams.
