Dental veneers are a cosmetic dentistry solution to correct gaps, chips and stains. Veneers can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain.
They are a great way to enhance your smile and boost your self-esteem. They are also a cost-effective option to cover up chips, stains and minor flaws.
Veneers are non-porous, which means they resist stains and damage better than natural teeth. This is important because stains can affect the health of your natural teeth, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
You can expect your veneers to last about 10 years, if you take good care of them and attend regular checkups with your dentist. Then, you can enjoy the benefits of your new, gorgeous smile for years to come!
The procedure to get veneers is usually fairly quick and easy. Your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel to allow the veneers to adhere to your teeth.
Once your veneers have been applied, they will look and feel like natural teeth. Your dentist will make sure they are a good match for your existing teeth and look natural.
When you visit your dentist to have your veneers fitted, they will also take x-rays of your mouth to ensure that your new veneers are properly placed.
They will also take impressions of your teeth and send them to the lab for production. The dental lab will make your veneers in the color, shape and size that you have chosen.
