Pena Adobe Dental Care Veneer Shades

Porcelain veneers are a very popular cosmetic option for individuals who are looking to correct for stains or other aesthetic imperfections in their smile. However, a common question that patients will often raise is if porcelain veneers themselves can be whitened. 

In this article, Dr. Amani Takher explores this question while also providing some tips to maintain your veneers. Make sure to contact his friendly staff in Vacaville, CA if  you had any questions!

Can You Whiten Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers cannot be whitened or brightened once they are painted on your teeth. The reason why is due to how they are fixated to your teeth.

Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front of a patient’s teeth using a cement material. This cement material ensures the durability of your veneers, allowing them to last for years if they are properly taken care of.

How can I Whiten My Teeth?

If patients are looking to whiten their teeth, it is recommended to first whiten your natural teeth using a teeth whitening regimen. Once your natural teeth are whitened to the color you desire, our dentist will replace your veneers to match your natural teeth color. This will ensure the veneers match your teeth exactly, and look bright white.

We also recommend to avoid foods that stain teeth such as dark colored liquids or tobacco. Veneers can stain easily, so it is recommended to be careful when eating or drinking.

Many patients who visit our dental office in Vacaville, CA will inevitably ask how long dental implants will typically last.  In this article, Dr. Amani Takher discusses the typical duration for dental implants and discusses some of the benefits that they offer for patients! 

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants are built to last upwards of 25 years or even a lifetime. They are made of titanium, and are anchored to the bone rather than the tooth’s roots. Implants are comfortable and allow patients to speak, and eat normally like they would with natural teeth.

 

What Happens If I've Lost Too Much Bone in my Jaw?

Proper bone in the jaw must be present to give the required support for the implants. As part of our evaluation process we determine if the patient has enough bone present. If not, bone grafting can be done to provide the support that is needed. 

How Do I Take Care of my Dental Implants?
Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing daily, and visiting our office regularly helps to keep the implants looking and feeling great. If cared for properly dental implants can last you a lifetime.

What Are The Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants offer a variety of benefits including:

  • Implants function like natural teeth and are a reliable choice for patients that want a beautiful smile.
  • Implants are permanent, and do not need to be removed or cleaned like with dentures or bridges.
  • Implants are anchored to the bone and made of titanium. This makes them extremely strong and stable.
