Deciding that porcelain veneers will create the look you want is only one step in the process. There is much more to learn before proceeding further. The bond between original tooth and porcelain veneer is critical as it not only provides the esthetic perfection desired, but also a strong bond which is essential for correct veneer function.
With veneers—as opposed to crowns—your natural teeth remain largely intact with only a minimal amount being altered to fit the veneer. For teeth that resist whitening, veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white. Dentists may also recommend veneers to quickly fix minor twists, overlaps, and small gaps.
Maintaining your porcelain veneers is actually quite simple: Simply treat them as you would your original teeth, with routine brushing and flossing. Using non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste will typically be suggested by your dental professional. Dental veneers can make even the darkest teeth appear bright white. Patients with whiter, brighter smiles tend to smile more often and feel more confident.
