What Exactly Are Ceramic Veneers?
Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain, (think fake nail), that covers the tooth.
Can Ceramic Veneers Really Be Made In One Day?
CEREC veneers, can be done in a single visit, and use the best porcelains available. Dental offices that don’t have a CAD/CAM system and lab need two visits, usually two-three weeks apart.
Candidacy For Ceramic Veneer
Patients with the following conditions:
- Crooked teeth
- Worn teeth
- Chipped teeth
- Spaced teeth
How Long Do Ceramic Veneers Last?
On average veneers can last about 10-25 years with proper care. Newer porcelains are virtually indestructible and hardly ever chip. Veneers can de-bond, but usually, they need to be replaced when they are no longer esthetic.
How to Maintain Ceramic Veneers
After veneers are placed, it’s up to the wearer to protect them to increase their lifespan. Here are some ways to properly care for your veneers:
- Follow good oral hygiene practices, the same ones that you follow for your natural teeth.
- Brush at least twice a day, floss and see your dentist regularly.
- Wear a mouth guard if you are involved in any sports to avoid accidents that could crack or chip veneers.
- Don’t use your teeth as tools. Using your teeth as scissors to open a stubborn knot or closed container is a no-no and will lead to cracking or breaking your porcelain veneer.
- Protect your veneers from certain habits like clenching, grinding or putting excessive pressure on your teeth.
- Maintaining the color of your veneers is easy since they are highly stain resistant, but the dental cement that keeps them in place can become discolored. This can make the edge of the veneer appear yellowed and unnatural. To protect the color, patients should avoid stain producing foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, wine, berries, and tomato sauce.
