Conceal Dental Flaws with Veneers

When it comes to having the perfect smile, it is not always the big issues that prevent you from achieving it. For some, minor issues such as cracks or chips, gaps, and other cosmetic imperfections could be the culprits preventing that dream smile. Our smiles are incredibly important to us and are impactful in every encounter we have with others. In fact, many people will say the first feature they notice about another is their smile. If you are ready to achieve a smile that will leave a lasting impression, consider porcelain veneers from Dr. Jonathan Titus at Titus Dentistry in Middletown, Indiana. Dr. Titus has been providing veneers to patients in the Middletown, Anderson, Pendleton, and Muncie, Indiana, areas with great success. 

Veneers are very thin but strong porcelain shells applied to a tooth’s visible surface to conceal several minor to moderate dental flaws. While veneers are crafted to last years, they are not invincible. Avoiding some of the following bad habits would be beneficial to ensure that your veneers last as long as intended. 

Avoid Tobacco Use

The porcelain used to craft your veneer(s) is known for its stain-resistant properties. However, the use of smoking and smokeless tobacco will stain the composite which is used to attach the veneers to your tooth. What results is a yellowish, brown tinge that will run along the edges. Against the brilliant white shade of your veneers, this staining will stick out.

Avoid Grinding and Clenching

For many, bruxism is an inconvenient reality. Even if you are able to control chronic clenching and grinding of teeth during the day, you lose all control when you sleep. Over time, bruxism can cause significant damage to your teeth. The same goes for your veneers. Fractured veneers are all too common among patients who suffer from bruxism. If you elect for veneers and suffer from bruxism, you may want to inquire about protective night guards for your teeth to alleviate the intense pressure that night clenching will put on your teeth and veneers.
