Porcelain Veneers Florence, SC dentist Dr. Griffin is here blogging today to explain the many life- changing and confident benefits of porcelain veneers. Honestly, it is ridiculous how easy it is to scuff or mark up our teeth; it is almost not even fair. Our teeth are supposed to be so solid and strong, strong enough to rip through meat and hard candy, but when it comes to leaving blemishes it is not the same story. We experience chips, discoloration, cracks, plaque, holes, and so much more. Some of us even were born with teeth that do not particularly fit our facial structure, which can be very frustrating.
Or even if we have suffered from grinding our teeth, also known as bruxism, cracks and chips can show in the bottom of the top layer of the teeth or the top of the bottom layer as well; this is not a good look for us. We actually had a young patient that had ruined her teeth so badly that we had to laser off most of her top gums to show more of her teeth because we had to file them so vigorously. Having a grinding habit can be detrimental to the appearance and functionality of the teeth.
Some of us may have even been born with gaps in between our teeth, which open gateways for plaque and bacteria more easily than a tight and clean row of teeth. Or just for appearance sake, gaps can leave some people feeling pretty self-conscious about the way they look when they smile.
Considering whitening products and treatments not done in the dentist office can be awful for the enamel on our teeth and eventually the teeth as well, it is very difficult to find ways to whiten and brighten our smiles. The worst part is the constant accessibility to foods and liquids that tend to stain and dye the teeth a color that we do not prefer. If you are a heavy coffee drinker, soda drinker, or a wine drinker, chances are you may not have the whitest shine in your smile.
We have the absolute, perfect solution for you though if any of these situations pertain to you; porcelain veneers. By getting porcelain veneers, you are simply covering up any dental flaws with a gorgeous and perfect set of realistic and natural- looking teeth. It does not matter what may be causing you to lack confidence in your smile, we may be able to help.
One of the greatest pro’s of porcelain veneers is that they are stain- resistant; this could last for years with proper care and cleaning of the teeth. Veneers can remain the color or close to the color that you got them in if you regulate the amount of liquids that can leave gross tints on the teeth. We recommend heavily to use a straw when drinking any of the liquids that we mentioned earlier; this can help to reduce the direct exposure to the teeth which will lessen the risks of staining.
Another great advantage of porcelain veneers is the durability they possess. They are just as strong as the natural teeth, which means you can floss and brush thoroughly with them as you did with your original teeth. They require less up keep but it does not mean that you are free from infection or gum disease when having these in your mouth. No matter what dental work you have done, it is imperative that you always keep your mouth as clean as possible to help oral hygiene.
