There is a link between dental health and long lasting veneers from your dentist near Antioch
Porcelain veneer treatment is incredibly popular among men and women who wish to experience their best smiles. Using a great deal of artistic creativity, precision, and technique, Dr. Alkhoury helps our patients design their smiles to fit their needs. Although teeth whitening and other cosmetic procedures may be used for smile enhancement, porcelain veneers are considered the most versatile cosmetic treatment to date. In just a couple of visits, cracks, gaps, discoloration, and unevenness in the smile can disappear for good.
Veneers are tooth-shaped sheaths of porcelain created in a dental lab, a mold of the patient's teeth serving as the design guide. Once perfected, veneers are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth. A single veneer may be placed onto a damaged tooth, or a full set of veneers can recreate the smile. While consulting with patients for porcelain veneers, Dr. Alkhoury performs a thorough examination to ensure all teeth are suitable for this type of treatment. If a tooth has an existing filling or large amount of damage, a dental crown may be a more suitable form of treatment.
Veneers and your oral health
The goal of this treatment is to enhance the smile, which means your dentist must address any dental health issues before proceeding with veneers in our office near Antioch. This is an important step, as is ongoing oral hygiene, because veneers cover only the front surface of teeth. Their presence does not protect teeth from existing problems, or from the development of cavities in the future.
Caring for veneered teeth
Porcelain veneers are used around the world today. This treatment is safe and effective, and can help you feel confident in your smile. There are no complex care requirements to keep your veneered teeth healthy. Patients who have been treated with veneers are advised to avoid biting on hard objects like fingernails. Patients who have a history of clenching or grinding teeth will be advised to wear a bite guard while they sleep. With excellent oral hygiene, consisting of brushing at least twice a day and daily flossing, veneered teeth can maintain the same level of health as non treated teeth.
Dr. Alkhoury has helped hundreds of men and women love their smiles. Contact our office in Brentwood for your consultation for cosmetic dental treatment.
