What Are Dental Veneers?

If you are self-conscious or embarrassed of your smile, our dentist may recommend veneers. These custom-made, thin shells of tooth-colored material are bonded to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers have many benefits to the attractiveness of your smile. They can easily whiten your smile, even if your teeth are severely stained. Veneers are nearly stain resistant, so you don’t need to worry about your veneers becoming discolored. If a smile imperfection besides staining is being corrected, your veneers can be matched to the shade of your other teeth.

How Do I Care for My Dental Veneers?

To care for your teeth with new veneers, brush and floss them just as you would your other teeth. You may want to limit coffee and other foods and beverages that can stain the teeth. Be mindful that your veneers will need to be replaced after about 10 to 15 years. Caring for your teeth properly will help your veneers last for as long as possible.
