Can You Get Cavities with Porcelain Veneers?

person with veneers wondering if they can still get cavities

The original purpose of veneers was to temporarily improve the smiles of movie stars so their teeth would look more stunning on the silver screen. Over time, they became more widely available to the average person and were designed to last longer, too. Today, veneers are used to correct a range of cosmetic issues, including gaps, cracks, misaligned teeth, chips, discoloration, and misshapen pearly whites. Though they cover up part of the teeth, this doesn’t mean that you no longer have to care for your pearly whites at home. Read on to learn more about maintaining your veneers and whether you can still get cavities if you have them.

There are many physicians that place dental implants. There are only a handful of physicians utilizing the PRF process when placing them. Dr. Friedman knows the many benefits of PRF & incorporates the process when diagnosing the procedure. Know your options if you are interested in dental implants or in need of replacing missing teeth.

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) & its predecessor, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), are categorized as autologous blood concentrates, which are blood products made using the patient’s own blood. The physician draws a blood sample from the patient then concentrates it using a centrifuge machine to separate the different blood components into individual, concentrated layers that the physician can use during the extraction or implant placement process. Although several variations of this technology exist today that prioritize different blood components, the overarching concept in dentistry is the same — they use the patient’s own blood to enhance healing after oral surgery.

In addition to speeding healing, there is a laundry list of benefits for patients & dentists: It decreases bleeding & reduces inflammation. PRF is “rich” in leukocytes, so there’s a decreased risk of postoperative infection. And because it’s made from the patient’s own blood, risk of allergic or immunologic rejection is eliminated.

If you are interested in knowing more about PRF or dental implants, call Jess today to schedule your complimentary implant consultation. 858-547-0070
