Teeth Whitening & Veneers
Everyone experiences some form of tooth discoloration, whether from food, tobacco, caffeine, or simply age. If you are interested in a brighter smile, My Smiles Center can help you decide on a teeth-whitening strategy that fits your needs. We offer several teeth-whitening treatment options, including in-office whitening, at-home whitening, and porcelain veneers.
Imagine walking into our office for teeth-whitening and leaving with a smile that’s multiple shades brighter. That’s the kind of immediate results you’ll see from our in-office whitening treatments. When you come to the office, we’ll apply a solution to your teeth and use a very strong light to bleach your teeth. The procedure takes no more than one and a half hours, and the results are immediately noticeable. For at-home whitening, we’ll apply the whitening gel to the inside of a mold of your teeth. After wearing the mold for several hours a day or overnight for a few weeks, you’ll be showing off a newly whitened smile.
Porcelain veneers are a great choice if your teeth are both discolored and chipped or cracked; however, several patients choose veneers because they’re long-lasting and stain-resistant. Our veneers are indistinguishable from natural teeth and will help you achieve the bright, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. After making a mold of your bite and buffing the surface of each tooth, your veneers will be crafted in the dental lab. During your next appointment, we’ll cement the veneers to your teeth. Getting porcelain veneers is an easy, permanent way to boost self-esteem and confidence in your smile.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin outer shells made of high-grade ceramic that act as invisible laminates for the teeth. Many people suffer from stubborn stains or discoloration on the teeth that do not go away with teeth whitening or bleaching. Dental veneers perform the role of masking such cosmetic problems of the teeth and make the teeth appear clean, white and bright. When the teeth may be slightly broken, chipped or crooked, veneers can help to improve the cosmetic appearance in such cases as well.
Porcelain veneers constitute the most advanced technology in the field of dental veneers. Porcelain is a very hard substance, and highly polished qualities of porcelain are largely impervious to stains and marks. As a result, porcelain veneers become a highly effective and sustainable solution to improve the cosmetic appearance of the teeth. It is a non-invasive procedure that does not affect the oral health of the person in any adverse manner. It is a very conservative approach that preserves the maximum tooth structure and yet delivers effective results.
Porcelain is one of the best materials available for veneers because of the inherent properties of porcelain that match quite closely with the natural teeth. In terms of looks and color, porcelain appears very similar to natural teeth. In fact, porcelain also reflects light in almost the same way as natural teeth. As a result, the patient who is using porcelain veneers can experience the feeling of natural teeth.
Porcelain veneers have a long life if the patient maintains his oral health and hygiene in a proper way. There is hardly any special maintenance required for the veneers, and the patient will almost forget that he is using veneers. Compared to the composite veneers, porcelain veneers are far superior in terms of quality and deliver long-lasting value to patients.
How Long Do Dental Veneers Last?
Dental veneers made in porcelain can be expected to last anywhere between 10 to 20 years, depending on the quality material used and the oral hygiene practices and general oral health of the user. The technology in the field of veneers has galloped ahead rapidly in recent years. Many veneer making companies have come up with very superior qualities of porcelain veneers that are highly resilient and durable, and last for many years.
However, the longevity with veneers is seen mainly in the case of fine qualities of porcelain veneers only. Whereas, in cases where composite material is used to make veneers, the lifespan of the veneer is much lesser. In most cases, the composite veneer may last around a year or two. The composite material is not strong enough to withstand the pressure between the teeth for too long.
In the case of porcelain veneers, the lifespan tends to be much longer also because of the imperviousness of refined and polished porcelain against colors, stains, and marks. Due to this natural property of porcelain, the veneers can remain as good as new for several years. The only important part is that the user should be diligent in maintaining good oral hygiene and take a daily balanced diet. If the oral health of the user is not adversely affected due to any reason, the veneers can continue to remain firmly bonded with the teeth for a long time.
People with dental veneers are recommended to make regular visits to their dentist every six months. If there is any problem occurring with the veneers, the dentist will be able to spot it early. Apart from these factors, it is of paramount importance that the tooth should be prepared well before a veneer is placed, and a high-quality bonding material must be used to fuse the two together. The size of the veneer must also be custom-fitting to the patient’s tooth. If all these factors remain in force, the patient can continue to use dental veneers for a long period of time without any hassle.
