Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental are general and cosmetic dentists who have provided years of service to patients in and around the Acworth area. Their team is dedicated to helping others improve the health and appearance of their smiles, which is why they offer a wide range of restorative treatments. When patients have imperfections in their natural teeth that make them feel self-conscious about their appearance, they can work with a cosmetic dentist to address them and enhance their natural smiles. For some patients, this treatment is porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers, also referred to as dental veneers, are a popular solution to a variety of imperfections. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley find that they effectively cover problems such as permanently stained teeth, misaligned teeth, and even broken teeth in a conservative yet affordable manner. Patients are concerned, however, about how these veneers will hold up over time. They may have questions such as, “Can veneers move?” “Can veneers break?” “How do you care for veneers?”
Veneers cannot move, as they are bonded onto the natural teeth and become one with the smile. Veneers can break, however, and they must be taken care of. While they can withstand regular chewing and biting forces, they may still break if patients chew on hard foods such as ice cubes. They may also be at risk in patients with bruxism, a condition that causes them to grind and clench their teeth. Patients with this condition may want to speak to their dentist about having a custom mouth guard made to wear at night to protect not their veneers and their natural teeth from wear. Caring for veneers is easy, patients brush and floss as they normally would, and continue to see Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley for recall appointments and examinations at least twice a year.
If you have considered porcelain veneers for your smile but have been concerned about how they work, how to care for them, and what to expect, contact Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley of 32 Dental to schedule a consultation appointment. Our team is here to help you understand the available options for repairing your smile.
