My teeth were starting to deteriorate, and I was running out of options to repair them. The dentist gave me a choice. I could wait until the bone loss was so bad that I would have to have my teeth removed and get dentures, or I could have them removed now and get dental implants. I opted for the implants. If you’re thinking of getting dental implants, you probably have a lot of questions. I love mine, but they took some getting used to. In this blog, I’m sharing my experience and all the information that I picked up throughout my implant experience. You can find out what the procedure entails, how to prepare for your implants, and how to care for them once they’re in.
When you think about getting dental veneers, you're likely thinking about the way they will improve your smile and make you feel better about the way you look. However, dental veneers offer not just a cosmetic benefit, but many oral health ones as well. Here are just some of the ways dental veneers can improve your smile beyond looks.
They can strengthen your teeth
When you get dental veneers, they help to strengthen your teeth. That's because these nearly paper thin porcelain or other material veneers are placed over your existing teeth, thus strengthening the enamel you already have. If you're getting dental veneers because you have thinning tooth enamel and want to protect your teeth against damage, then know you are helping to keep your teeth stronger.
You can prevent future damage
If your teeth are chipped or cracked already, then getting dental veneers will be beneficial to you in helping prevent future damage. Your teeth will have all their chips and cracks attended to, then special porcelain veneers will be placed over your existing teeth to help protect what's left from future damage. You can keep your teeth from falling out or becoming irreparably damaged by having dental veneers put in.
As a bonus, a full arch reconstruction or simple single dental veneers can help to make your smile more even and allow you to chew your food more easily. The removal of dental pressure in your mouth due to properly-set teeth — which dental veneers can provide for you — will help improve your smile and keep it strong.
You can improve your overall dental health
The way your teeth are set in your mouth can affect the way you brush your teeth, speak, chew, and even the way you set your jaw. Healthy teeth begin with having dental veneers put in areas where your dental structure is poor or uneven, not so you can improve the way your smile looks, but so you can improve the way your smile feels. Porcelain veneers can help make an overbite or under bite less severe and can improve your overall dental health by allowing your teeth to be straighter and more defined, easier for brushing and flossing.
When you have your dental veneers put in, you'll need to continue brushing and flossing your teeth as usual. Your dentist will give you further instructions for caring for your smile in the best way so your dental veneers will last.Share
