How to Care For Your Stunning New Veneers
Practicing Good Oral Hygiene
Always brush your teeth and gums at least twice a day. You should also floss daily, so that no food gets stuck between your veneers and teeth.
Attending Regular Dentistry Visits
Dr. Lande can ensure that your teeth and veneers are in good shape as he conducts your routine cleanings. That way, he can look after each individual tooth in your smile.
Avoiding Sticky and Crunchy Foods
You should take care to avoid sticky foods, like toffee, and crunchy foods, like nuts, when you have veneers. Otherwise, you may cause damage to your dental work.
Address Multiple Cosmetic Concerns at Once Request Your Veneer Consultation
Veneers can improve a variety of different cosmetic tooth concerns, which for many patients can make them a superior alternative to treatments such as whitening.
If you have discolored teeth along with breaks or misalignments, veneers can address each of those problems with a single procedure.

Alternative Options to Veneers
Still not sure if porcelain veneers are right for you? Take a look at some alternative procedures we offer at our Carmel, IN, practice, serving Zionsville and the greater Indianapolis area.
For surface-level discoloration, professional whitening treatment can quickly and effectively brighten your natural teeth. While whitening can remove years worth of stains, the procedure is only effective for surface enamel and cannot correct darkened dentin rooted within the tooth structure.
If your teeth have suffered more severe structural damage and need additional support, our same-day crowns may be a better option. A dental crown encapsulates the entire surface of the tooth providing aesthetic enhancement as well as protection from future breakage and decay.
Combine Treatment For a Full Smile Makeover
For those struggling with more extensive cosmetic concerns, veneers can be combined with other procedures in a full smile makeover. When you request your consultation at our Carmel practice, Dr. Lande will create a treatment plan that uses multiple procedures to help you achieve your dream smile.
In addition to veneers, your full smile makeover could include:
While veneers can hide minor gaps and misalignments, they cannot correct severely crooked, overcrowded, or gapped teeth. In these cases, Dr. Lande may recommend one of our orthodontic treatments before he places veneers. Our Carmel practice offers traditional metal braces, Invisalign® clear aligners, SureSmile®, and Six Month Smiles® to correct more severe misalignments.
Your gums frame your teeth and create a balanced appearance. When there is excess tissue, it can make your teeth look small, short, and unflattering. While veneers can enhance the shape and size of your tooth, the excessive gum tissue will need to be removed first to create the desired look. Gum contouring can remove the excess tissue and reshape your tooth's appearance to balance your smile.
Teeth whitening is often combined with veneer treatment to enhance the shade of your natural teeth before placing your new restorations. Our Carmel practice offers both professional take-home teeth whitening kits and in-office Zoom! whitening. Both systems are highly effective at quickly removing surface stains and creating a whiter, brighter smile.
A Worthwhile Investment In Your Smile
Many patients are concerned about treatment costs. While we understand the initial cost can be intimidating, it is an investment in your happiness and quality of life.
The longevity of porcelain veneers can make it a more affordable option in the long run for patients considering resin bonding. Bonding does not have the same durability as veneers and will need to be replaced more frequently.
Having a smile you're proud of is priceless. Many patients have an improved quality of life following veneer treatment as they can confidently enter the world with their smiles on full display. Since there is virtually no downtime, you can experience a significant boost in confidence immediately after treatment.
