Are you happy with you smile? Or does it feature multiple cosmetic flaws that you wish will disappear? If this is the case for you, our dentist might recommend dental veneers. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front surfaces of the teeth using dental bonding. They can mask many different cosmetic flaws, such as chips, cracks, crookedness, and stains.
Speaking of stains, this is an important factor once the veneers are placed. Dental veneers are typically made out of porcelain, which is a material used often in dentistry for several reasons. One reason is that it resists stains, making this one cosmetic issue patients can worry less about.
However, it is important to remember that stain resistant still means that staining can occur. One way to get stains on your porcelain veneers is by smoking. Nicotine can very easily alter the color of the teeth, as well as veneers and restorations, such as crowns and fillings. Patients who get teeth whitening, restorations, or veneers are encouraged to refrain from smoking.
