Of course, there was a time when dental veneers were almost exclusive to movie stars, models, and famous sports figures. But today, we offer porcelain veneers in Crown Point, IN, to give everyone the chance to enjoy a red-carpet-ready smile.
Why Porcelain Veneers Are So Popular with Celebrities
For the most part, when you're in the movies or gracing the pages of popular magazines, your teeth are on display. And we all want beautiful smiles. In celebrity circles, it's almost a demand. Additionally, a straight smile helps celebrities in their careers, allowing them to book jobs and feel confident at auditions. Of course, we all want to feel confident!
Porcelain veneers can conceal almost any cosmetic issue, giving you a spectacular smile.
Veneers can hide:
Short and worn teeth
- Gummy smiles
- Slightly crooked teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Unusual spacing
- General flaws
With porcelain veneers, all anyone sees is a symmetrical smile that looks like it belongs in print or on-screen.
How We Place Dental Veneers in Crown Point, IN
First, your dentist assesses your oral health and talks to you about your goals to ensure that veneers are suitable. Then, if everything checks out, we schedule veneer placement.
Because you want your veneers to flush with untreated teeth and not look bulky, your dentist removes a bit of tooth enamel before cementing your custom veneers. When your dentist removes tooth enamel, it's essential to consider your veneers permanent. If you damage one in the future, it will need replacing. However, with proper care and good habits, your veneers can last for a very long time.
Taking Care of Your Dental Veneers
Taking care of your dental veneers requires only general maintenance and good habits.
- Visit your dentist regularly
- Brush and floss regularly
- Don't bite on hard objects like ice
You should also talk to your dentist if you grind and clench your teeth, a nocturnal habit called bruxism. This can wear down your teeth and ruin your veneers.
