Perfect, Lasting Smiles with Porcelain
Little imperfections can make you self-conscious about your smile. Porcelain veneers are an easy way to fix issues such as gaps, chips, discolorations, and irregularly shaped teeth. Perfect to correct minor problems with your teeth, dental veneers look and feel like your natural teeth, and the restoration can dramatically change your smile.
What are Veneers?
Dental veneers are thin sheets of tooth-colored porcelain, which are bonded to the surface of your tooth. Veneers are custom made to fit the unique shape of your teeth, as the dentist will create a model of your teeth so the veneer can be made to fit perfectly. Veneers cover the front of your teeth, which may require light preparation of the tooth enamel prior to bonding.
Caring for Dental Veneers
Veneers look like natural teeth, and are generally stain-resistant. Though to keep your beautiful new smile sparkling, we recommend avoiding certain foods, like coffee, tea, and red wine, and products such as tobacco.
Veneers are durable, and wear the same or even better than your natural enamel. The bond between the veneer and your tooth enamel is permanent, and virtually undetectable. However, the exposed area of the tooth is still susceptible to decay, so you need to ensure you’re still practicing great oral hygiene, by brushing and flossing regularly.
The better care you take of your teeth with dental veneers, the longer the restoration will last. With great care, veneers generally last ten to twenty years or more.
Dental veneers improve your smile, giving you a new confidence. They are comfortable, lasting restorations that you’ll be proud to show off. Ask us about dental veneers today!
