Protect your teeth with porcelain veneers in Marrero, LA
If you have fragile or crooked teeth, do not hesitate to reach out to Smile In Style, Diem Do DDS in Marrero, LA. Dr. Diem Do offers porcelain veneers that can bring the shine back to your smile. Cracked or fragile teeth are often caused by gum disease, tooth decay, or trauma. Oversized filling and bruxism can also weaken the integrity of your teeth and lead to cracking. Damaged teeth need to be treated as soon as possible, and porcelain veneers are a much better alternative to extraction.
Preserve your natural smile
Porcelain veneers act as protection for your natural teeth so you can preserve as many teeth as you can. This will help prevent bone loss in your jaw and help maintain the natural shape and appearance of your face.
Dr. Do will need to treat any underlying tooth decay or gum disease before you are fitted for veneers. During your appointment, he may have to scrape off some of your tooth enamel to make room for your dental appliance. He will make impressions of your mouth and send them to a lab so they can create a composite veneer. Once the veneers are ready, you can come back in and have them bonded to your teeth.
After your appointment, you should wait at least an hour and a half before eating, and you shouldn’t chew with your veneers for at least 24 hours. Once the bonding process is complete, you can go back to eating normally, with a few exceptions. You should not bite down on anything hard with your veneers, and you should always cut hard foods like apples or raw vegetables before eating them.
Durable, long-lasting restorations
Porcelain veneers are made with a durable ceramic that will restore your smile and give you full functionality with your teeth. You will be able to eat and speak normally, and the veneers will blend in with your other teeth discreetly. In some cases, you may have to come in to adjust your veneers for a more comfortable fit, but once it’s set, it can last up to 15 years or longer as long as you maintain good oral hygiene.If you are in the communities of Marrero, Harvey, Gretna, Westwego, New Orleans, Avondale, Metairie, Kenner or Lafitte, call us today at (504) 370-2229 for a consultation to learn more about porcelain veneers and the right choice for your dental restoration at Smile In Style, Diem Do DDS.
