All about veneers
Veneers are thin porcelain or resin coverings that go on the outside-facing surface of your teeth. They’re custom designed to blend in seamlessly with the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, offering a discreet cosmetic improvement for a range of smile imperfections.
One of the best things about dental veneers is that they can conceal smile imperfections without the need for an invasive, lengthy procedure. Your dentist prepares your teeth by gently removing a small amount of enamel from your tooth’s surface and then takes a mold so the veneers fit each tooth perfectly.
Your veneers are custom made in the lab and then bonded to each tooth for a strong, durable fix that will last for years to come. Veneers are easy to maintain — simply brush and floss regularly, and be sure to keep your regular dental visits for the best results possible.
Five reasons to choose veneers this year
You already know that veneers are a versatile fix for many different dental flaws. But that’s not the only reason you should consider them if you’re hoping to improve your smile this year. Here’s a look at our top five reasons you should consider veneers.
1. Veneers look and feel like natural teeth
With today’s modern veneers, there’s no way to tell them apart from your natural teeth. Our goal is to cover up any cosmetic dental flaws to reveal your naturally beautiful smile.
By customizing the veneers for each tooth, we can give you veneers that match your natural teeth as closely as possible so you end up with a functional, aesthetically pleasing smile — without feeling like you have a mouthful of dental prosthetics.
2. Nobody can tell you have them
Because they match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, your veneers aren’t distinguishable from the rest of your smile. This means that nobody can tell you’re wearing them, giving you a virtually undetectable cosmetic solution that hides dental imperfections without sacrificing your smile’s natural look.
3. Veneers help prevent stains
Although many people choose veneers to improve the color of their teeth or erase challenging dental stains that even professional teeth whitening can’t address, veneers can do more than cover up your concerns. Porcelain veneers offer enhanced stain resistance to keep your smile brighter and whiter longer.
4. Less tooth sensitivity
While veneers are primarily used to provide cosmetic improvements, they also help alleviate tooth sensitivity caused by worn or damaged tooth enamel. Once they’re in place, veneers act like an enamel shield, replacing the worn or damaged enamel and protecting the sensitive interior of your teeth.
5. Veneers are made to last
Due to their strength and durability, veneers can last up to 15 years with proper care and maintenance. Their composition makes them resistant to cracks and chips, helping protect your smile for years to come.
