Protecting the work performed by your Antioch area dentist - caring for tooth veneers

To perfect the smile through cosmetic dentistry treatment takes an artistic eye, precise technique, and consideration of the entire facial structure. Dr. Alkhoury, your Antioch area dentist, has mastered the skills necessary to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Frequently, tooth veneers are the chosen form of treatment.

Veneers lead to the permanent cosmetic enhancement of the smile, covering chips and cracks, unattractive proportions or shapes, and even discoloration. Veneers can straighten the smile line and, in some instances, improve slight misalignment of a tooth. Patients of Brentwood Family Dental receive veneers made of porcelain, a material that blends seamlessly with natural enamel for perfect results. Not only does porcelain reflect light like natural enamel, and hold up to biting, this material also resists stains.

Undergoing any type of cosmetic treatment, whether on the face, body, or to improve the smile, is something that takes a great deal of consideration. An investment of time and money are involved, and you should reap the rewards of what you put into the appearance of your smile. Maintaining the look of porcelain veneers is, fortunately, quite simple. Just as you would keep natural teeth clean and healthy with daily brushing and flossing, porcelain veneers will respond too. A high level of oral hygiene not only washes away food particles from veneers, but also keeps the tooth structure behind the veneer in its healthiest condition.

Although veneers are shells of non-porous material that cover the surface of a tooth or teeth, and will not stain, this does not mean that treated teeth are protected from the development of cavities. Plaque can still build up on the underlying tooth, and bacteria can damage healthy enamel. To ensure that cavities do not impact the longevity of your beautiful new smile, brushing at least twice a day and flossing every day are recommended, with gentle attention paid to the gum line. In addition, maintaining six-month dental check-ups will enable you to get the most out of the investment in your smile.

Part of the appeal of porcelain is the material's strength, which holds up well to everyday use, but it is vulnerable to excessive force. After the placement of porcelain veneers, we encourage patients to avoid biting on ice, pen caps, or other hard objects that could damage teeth. Those who grind or clench their teeth are also treated with special care, usually with the creation of a mouth guard to wear during sleep, so that excessive pressure is not placed on veneers.

Your smile is an integral part of your image. Making improvements pays off when you know how to best care for cosmetic dental work.
