Veneers can be cared for just like your natural teeth.  Brush them regularly with toothpaste, floss once a day, and keep your regular hygiene visit at PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry.  It’s important to limit your sugar consumption and confine sweets to mealtimes to help prevent tooth decay.  Give your veneers the same respect that you’d give the rest of your smile.  Anything that will break or chip your natural teeth could do the same to a veneer.  This includes ice, hard cookies, brittle candy, hard nuts, pumpkin seeds, and popcorn.  Habits like nail-biting, using your teeth instead of scissors or bottle openers, and pencil chewing are other culprits that you want to avoid.  Once you get the picture, it’s easy to take care!

Disinfection and sterilization are two crucial decontamination processes that are performed in medical and dental offices. Any good dental practice will have robust protocols for carrying out these processes, the purpose of which is to ensure that any medical and surgical instruments being used do not transmit infectious pathogens to patients.

If you are looking to transform the appearance of your smile, you may be considering getting porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments and can improve the way your teeth look in just two appointments. Each veneer is custom-designed for a specific tooth and is created in the perfect shape, size, and color needed to naturally enhance its appearance. The process to fit dental veneers is simple too and takes place over two visits to your dentist. The first is used to prepare whichever teeth are being covered with porcelain veneers. This involves administering local anesthetic so that a little of the enamel can be removed, which will ensure that the veneers do not make the tooth appear too thick. Impressions are then taken which will be used to create your veneers before you are fitted with a temporary device and can leave. The second appointment, a week or two later, will involve checking the fit of your veneers and securing them permanently in place.

Porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns are options to restore your teeth. They can improve both the function and the look of your teeth. However, the main difference is that a porcelain veneer only covers the front of your tooth. A crown will cover the entire tooth. Before deciding which one is right for you, you will want to understand the differences between them. Both of the procedures have good success rates.
