Porcelain Veneers Dentist South Bend Indiana

Our cosmetic dentist in South Bend, IN, may recommend dental veneers to improve the appearance of cracked, chipped, or discolored front teeth. Porcelain veneers can also help close gaps between teeth and make short teeth appear longer. This is a great option if you have one or a couple of teeth that look different from the rest.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

A porcelain veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell that we attach to the front of a tooth to improve its appearance. The veneers procedure is ideal for patients with small chips, cracks, gaps, or stains affecting the front teeth in the "smile zone." To ensure the perfect fit, our dentist will prepare the fronts of the receiving teeth. That way, your new porcelain dental veneers will look and feel natural.

During your initial consultation, our dentist will determine if you're a likely candidate for porcelain veneers. From there, he'll outline your treatment plan so you can achieve the smile you've always wanted. Since veneers are non-porous, they're also stainproof!

Care and Maintenance

One of the main benefits of porcelain veneers is that they can last up to 10 or even 15 years with proper care. This means that you'll be responsible for practicing good oral hygiene at home. To maintain your beautiful smile, you'll need to brush your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes at a time. You should also floss once a day to remove any food particles or plaque that could get stuck between teeth.

Avoid chewing ice, pen caps, or other non-food items to avoid chipping your veneers. While porcelain veneers are durable and long lasting, we always recommend that our patients take every measure to protect their smiles. It's also recommended that you continue to see our South Bend cosmetic dentist for preventive care.
