Cosmetic dentistry is an art, and there are many types of services offered at Hill-Davis Dental Group to rejuvenate your smile. Porcelain veneers are a favorable option for improving the size, shape, function, durability, and color of one or multiple teeth. Your Lubbock, TX, dentist recommends porcelain veneers to patients who suffer from chips, cracks, or fractures in the enamel, along with excessive stains. To learn if porcelain veneers are right for you, read on, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Jimmy Hill or Dr. Camie Davis.
What Is a Porcelain Veneer?
Sometimes called laminates, these dental restorations are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that fit over the surface of your teeth. The ultimate goal is to revitalize and restore tooth enamel to help it look even better than it did before. Porcelain veneers also work to give your confidence and self-esteem a boost. Your Lubbock, TX, dentist can determine if you're a candidate after performing an oral examination and addressing your smile goal. They'll also listen to any questions and concerns.
Benefits of Porcelain Veneers
These virtually invisible shells deliver numerous advantages for rejuvenating your smile. Porcelain veneers are a popular choice for our Lubbock, TX, patients because they offer the following benefits.
- Disguise discolorations
- Hide gaps and spaces
- Provide a translucent, natural appearance
- Compatible with other dental restorations
Tips for Keeping Restorations Clean
After our Lubbock, TX, dentist places your veneers, adequate oral care is necessary to ensure successful treatment. Even though porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, you should care for them as you would natural teeth. It's best to use low or non-abrasive toothpaste to prevent damage from occurring. To keep veneers healthy, brush at least twice a day, floss at least once a day, and use antiseptic mouthwash for added protection. You'll also need to visit our Lubbock, TX, dental office for routine checkups.
Improving the structure and health of your teeth prevents dangerous complications from arising in the future. If you are considering cosmetic dentistry to rejuvenate your smile, our dentists recommend porcelain veneers as a long-lasting, durable solution. Consult with Dr. Jimmy Hill or Dr. Camie Davis to determine if you are a candidate.
