Get the Perfect Smile with Dental Veneers

by | Apr 18, 2024 | Dental Veneers


If you have a smile that appears unpleasant due to teeth that are:

  • Stained/discoloured
  • Chipped/cracked
  • Worn-out
  • Irregularly shaped
  • Misaligned
  • Gapped

Dentists on Vincent may have your answer! We have several potential solutions, including dental veneers.

Veneers are an efficient, attractive, quick, and relatively economical way to cover up many aesthetic issues with teeth and smiles.

Suppose you are considering improving the appearance of your teeth, specifically with veneers.

In that case, you may not know much about them—how they are applied, what they do, and how they affect your oral hygiene, including your chances of tooth decay.

At Dentists on Vincent, we’re happy to be here to fill you in!

Why Choose Dental Veneers?

There are many reasons to consider veneers as a solution for cosmetic dental issues.

Veneers can enhance your smile, confidence, and even performance if you have yellow, discoloured, cracked, chipped, slightly misaligned, or strangely shaped teeth.

They can also make your teeth appear substantially brighter and are more stain-resistant than natural teeth.

But veneers are not ‘silver bullets’ and must be cared for.

How can veneers help you avoid cavities?

Some people believe that veneers increase the chance of cavities because tooth reduction is needed, but the opposite often happens.

If appropriately applied, veneers can protect tooth enamel from the cavity-causing acids produced by oral bacteria. Because the veneers are not subject to decay, they protect the teeth.

Another thing to consider is that the shiny new look of veneers can become the impetus for developing a new and improved oral regimen that improves the health of teeth and gums.

There are several ways teeth covered by veneers can get cavities:

  • Patients with weakened teeth (from decay, fractures, or extensive dental fillings), unhealthy teeth (decay or active gum disease), or those without inadequate enamel on the tooth surface are far more prone to see unsatisfactory results, including decay, if they receive veneers.
  • Poorly installed veneers can give a bad fit over the tooth, leaving it vulnerable to decay, as the protective enamel has been
  • Veneers require good oral hygiene and regular trips to the dentist for check-ups.
  • A patient may take medicines that promote dry mouth or experience a suppressed immune system, which may result in oral irritation and infection.

Care for Your Dental Veneers!

As you might expect, the best way to avoid decay in a veneer-covered tooth is through an oral health regimen that keeps teeth and gums healthy, regular visits to the dentist, and compliance with all post-treatment suggestions provided by Dentists on Vincent.

We have some pointers on caring for the natural tooth below the veneer and the veneer itself. Most of this advice might seem obvious.

  • Brush twice — 20 minutes after every meal and snack, if possible.
  • Floss daily.
  • Visit Dentists on Vincent twice a year for cleaning.
  • Use mouthwash twice a day to battle bacteria.
  • Cut down on acidic foods and drinks, like citrus fruits, soda, and coffee.
  • Limit snacking.
  • Cut back on the consumption of sugary treats and drinks.
  • Stop using tobacco products.

Your veneers are an investment in your appearance and dental health, so you shouldn’t waste the opportunity they give you!

You can take care of your veneers at home, and we will help you in our offices. If you want to upgrade your teeth with veneers, call us!

If you suffer from tooth decay after a veneer is placed, the decay is generally easy to treat.

A tooth-coloured bonding agent may answer newer veneers, while older dental veneers may be replaced.
