Patients seeking restoration of damaged or imperfect teeth have many options to choose from when they visit their dentist. At Taylor Dental Care, we are pleased to offer a wide selection of solutions for patients to consider, including dental veneers and laminates. Sandy, Utah area patients, considering restorative treatments for the smile can ask about this and other options available.
What are dental veneers and laminates?
Veneers and laminates are custom restorations made of porcelain that cover the front of a tooth. In doing so, it disguises imperfections that may affect a patient’s smile. Several flaws can be covered with these restorations, including:
- Misaligned/crooked teeth
- Spaced teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
- Permanently stained teeth
- Chipped/cracked teeth
How long do dental veneers last?
Most patients who take regular care of their smiles will enjoy their veneers for many years, sometimes a decade or longer. Because there is still natural tooth enamel and structure underneath the veneer, these teeth are still susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Patients with restorations will need regular visits to the dentist to monitor for signs of problems on the underlying tooth.
Do dental veneers stain?
Veneers and laminates made of porcelain will not stain, while composite veneers will. That is why porcelain restorations are often more expensive, as they will hold up longer and not require replacement since staining won’t occur.
How do I care for my veneers and laminates?
Patients can take care of their veneers and laminates in the same way they take care of the rest of their smiles—with daily brushing and flossing and routine visits to the dentist for a cleaning and examination every six months.
