People who do not like their teeth for some or the other reason get their teeth fixed with the help of porcelain veneers. They stand for a strong shell of porcelain which is closely fitted to each tooth. Porcelain veneers hide all your dental imperfections while protecting your teeth. Porcelain veneers are just like teeth installations and to a third person your teeth would look just as natural as ever. Porcelain veneers are commonly used to hide crookedness, misalignment of teeth, discoloration, small gaps between teeth.
Taking care of your porcelain veneers is not a tough job, if you do it on timely basis and regularly.
Short term care for your porcelain veneers
Teeth are sensitive to sudden changes in the temperature. Your porcelain veneers might also get affected due to frequent change of temperature in your mouth. Make sure you do not consume hot and cold substances quickly one after another. Take some time and then change. This sensitivity might dry down after two three weeks after the installation.
Long term care for your porcelain veneers
