Caring For Your Smile After Porcelain Veneers

Your excitement at seeing how porcelain veneers improve your smile can be muddied by one concern – how do you care for your teeth after veneers are placed? Luckily, care for your smile after this cosmetic dental procedure will not change much from the care you provided before. Brushing and flossing will still take place like normal, though your dentist can recommend that you switch to a toothpaste that is non-abrasive. Your veneers can resist stains, but they do not respond to professional whitening agents in a favorable way. That means if they do become discolored, they cannot be treated like your natural teeth. Be mindful of this and of how often you consume dark liquids like coffee, tea, and red wine.

Placing Your Veneers
Your veneers are permanently affixed, so you will not be able to remove them when you eat or drink. They are custom made at a dental lab, using measurements supplied by your dentist. Those measurements are taken during your initial appointment, where your dentist may also treat the front of the teeth to make sure veneers fit properly. After they have been crafted, your veneers will be sent to your dentist, who will bond them to the front of your teeth.

Bruxism Can Put Your Veneers In Jeopardy
One issue you should watch out for after receiving veneers is bruxism. This is a habit of teeth grinding, one that can lead to frequent bouts of grinding while you sleep. Putting a stop to this is important. Without intervention, the habit can wind up leading to serious damage to your cosmetic restorations.

Enjoy the Confidence of a Whiter, Brighter Smile

A professional whitening treatment can exceed the effects you have seen from over the counter whitening agents. The materials available from your dentist at DaVinci Dentistry will be able to remove stains that are too deeply settled into your enamel for store bought products. The resulting change can lead to a real boost in your confidence – after your treatment is finished, you may find yourself absolutely thrilled to show off your whiter, brighter smile.
You have a choice between whitening your teeth with your dentist’s help in the office or taking the materials home with you. If you have further questions about what cosmetic dentistry can do for you, your dentist will be happy to review what options are open to you.

Selecting Your Preferred Approach To Professional Teeth Whitening
You can decide between having your dentist perform a whitening treatment in our office, or taking up the task yourself. If you decide to whiten your teeth at home, your dentist will equip you with whitening gels and a special tray that helps you apply those gels evenly. These gels will attack stains during 30 to 45 minute treatments. If you prefer to have the work done in our office, your brightened smile should be ready in less than an hour!

Reviewing Your Other Cosmetic Dental Treatment Options
People who worry about the quality of their smile may be concerned with more than just the color of their teeth. If you are worried about different dental flaws, talk to your dentist about them. You may be better served by porcelain veneers, which hide multiple superficial flaws effectively and have an impressive overall effect.

Enjoy A Whiter Smile Thanks To DaVinci Dentistry
If you are looking to make your smile whiter and brighter, and you are unimpressed by the results store bought whiteners have offered, talk to DaVinci Dentistry. You can walk away from a single whitening appointment with very impressive results! To make an appointment for yourself or a family member, call our Southlake, TX office today at (817)251-9333. We happily treat patients in Southlake, as well as Grapevine, Colleyville, North Richland Hills, Keller, and the HEB corridor.

Change the Alignment of Your Teeth with Invisalign

You may be surprised to find that with Invisalign, you can make changes to the alignment of your teeth without traditional braces. Many patients, particularly teens and adults, are relieved to know they can enjoy a correction without conspicuous brackets and wires on their teeth. You might like the idea of clear braces, but still be unsure as to how they can help. You will receive several aligners, which will be used in sequence. Each one brings your teeth closer to their final position than the one that came before. Because they are made from clear plastic, they can escape the notice of others. Because they can be removed, you can eat and clean your teeth more comfortably than if you had traditional braces.

Straightening Your Teeth Offers More Than Just A Better Smile
Many people want to straighten their teeth because they are counting on a positive cosmetic change; however, there are additional advantages you can gain. If you have teeth that overlap each other, you can face an increased risk for cavities in the hard to reach areas this problem creates. If your alignment affects your ability to comfortably bite and chew, you may develop issues with TMJ dysfunction. Invisalign is most commonly used to correct gaps and spacing, overcrowding, underbites, overbites, crossbites and open bites.

Your Dentist Can Make Big Smile Improvements
It is possible to make a number of positive changes with cosmetic dental care. Your dentist can offer you improvements in the form of whiter teeth, and can even hide damage and developmental flaws. The best way to determine what treatment is right for you is to go in for a consultation. Our dentists can offer their expert insight into what procedure would best provide the results you wish for.
