Explore the CEREC advantage
Do you have unaesthetic dental problems you’d like to resolve? Maybe it’s a chip, crack, or other sign of damage. It could be decay, a missing tooth, or spacing issues affecting your bite, comfort, or confidence. Veneers may be one of the most effective solutions.
The acronym CEREC stands for overall quality, and its features are displayed by each letter in its name. The C stands for chairside, meaning it’s a versatile yet accessible and straightforward chairside treatment because the technology is in the dental operatory.
E means economical, boasting favorable economics both monetarily and time-wise. The R is for restorations since these veneers will restore your look and function while looking natural. The second E is for “esthetic,” as veneers do not contain metal, and they are tooth colored. And the final C denotes ceramic because the ceramics we use have favorable qualities, including strength, stain resistance, shine, and natural aesthetics.
How long do CEREC veneers last?
Here’s another great advantage of CEREC veneers: many other types of dental restorations may face issues or fail after a while, sometimes sooner than many patients would have hoped or expected. However, CEREC veneers can last for many years, giving you that envy-inducing smile and outstanding functionality for decades. With proper care, some patients have enjoyed their veneers for 20 years or so, possibly longer.
Of course, there are multiple things you can do to protect your veneers and increase their durability. It’s no surprise that proper dental hygiene can lead to a better outcome, and you can extend the lifespan of your smile by adhering to twice-daily brushing, flossing, rinsing, and scheduling routine check-ups.
Your culinary choices can also affect the longevity of your veneers, and it’s recommended that you try to avoid biting down on tough foods, including nuts or hard candies. Other habits can also be detrimental to your veneers, such as chewing on ice or pen caps, or using your teeth as tools to open packages or hold or pull objects.
