All About Dental Veneers


What Are Dental Veneers?

Veneers are extremely thin shells that are custom-made to fit over your teeth, and approve the appearance of them. They are permanently bonded to the teeth and are typically made from porcelain.

Dental veneers are a common solution for cosmetic issues, such as:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Pointed or unusually sharp teeth
  • Small than average teeth

Depending on the circumstances, a person may opt to get a single dental veneer or several in order to achieve a symmetrical smile.

Benefits of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers are a cosmetic dental procedure that is intended to enhance the overall appearance of the smile and the teeth. They are a quick and simple way to fix teeth. Nobody will be able to tell that you have dental veneers because they are tooth-colored, very thin, and look so natural.

Veneers are also a great option for enamel loss, which can occur for a number of reasons, including:

  • Acid reflux disease
  • Over-ambitious tooth-brushing
  • Eating highly acidic foods

In addition to this, dental veneers are minimally invasive!

Caring for your Veneers

The short recovery time is one of the additional advantages of dental veneers. You can eat and drink normally once the veneers are in place! You can extend the longevity of your dental veneers by taking a few preventative measures. These safety measures include:

  • Never open bottles or packages with your teeth.
  • Avoid chewing on items (such as pens and fingernails)
  • If your teeth grind at night, wear a retainer.
  • When you play sports, wear a mouthguard.
  • Use your rear teeth to chew tougher foods.

You can make sure that your veneers last for many years without any problems by following these precautions.
