If you have gapped teeth, you’re not alone. Gap teeth are one of the most common cosmetic dental issues. It could be caused from thumb-sucking at an early age or even gum disease. No matter the reasoning, Sage Dental Care has qualified Lafayette dentist that is ready to help you fix the spacing in your smile with porcelain veneers.
What are porcelain veneers?
Instead of seeking an expensive, time-consuming straightening treatment like traditional orthodontics, porcelain veneers may be right for you. Porcelain veneers are thinly designed pieces of dental porcelain that cover the front surfaces of your teeth. Their appearance and durability are one of the best that we have to offer! This cosmetic solution can transform your smile by not only closing the gaps in your smile but by fixing these other smile flaws:
- Dark teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Shortened/Eroded teeth
- Spacy teeth
- Damaged enamel
How do I maintain my porcelain veneers?
Once you’ve decided that porcelain veneers in Lafayette are right for you by discussing your options with our dental experts, you can have them permanently placed pretty quickly. But what happens once you’ve achieved the smile you’ve been dreaming of? Sage Dental Care wants you to set you on the right track to maintaining your bright, straight teeth. By following these helpful tips, you should be able to keep your porcelain veneers beautiful and strong for years to come.
Keep Up Excellent Oral Hygiene
You must keep both your new and natural teeth healthy to maintain strong your dazzling smile. Good oral hygiene directly effects your teeth—especially their appearance. If you brush twice a day, flossing once a day, along with visiting our Lafayette office for professional cleanings, you should keep your new smile shining gorgeously and durable against dental problems.
Don’t Bite into Hard Foods or Foreign Objects
You should always avoid biting objects that put your teeth at risk for cracking, fracturing, or chipping—this goes for both porcelain veneers and your natural teeth. Your teeth aren’t scissors or mail openers, don’t treat them like such. The unnecessary wear and tear will eventually chip or break your teeth/veneers. Veneers can withstand the normal pressure that comes from chewing food and speaking, but they’re long-lifetime can be cut short if they’re misused.
