Veneers are thin porcelain shells custom-made to fit over your teeth to achieve a beautiful smile while providing strength and resilience like natural tooth enamel. Veneers can fix chipped, stained, and misaligned teeth and typically last 10-20 years.
Veneers offer a cosmetic solution to enhance the brightness of your teeth and straighten your smile. Not only can you use veneers to help with discoloration and small misalignments, they correct things like a chip or fracture in your tooth. Veneers are often preferred because they’re a less-intrusive option than crowns or braces.
First, your dentist cleans your tooth to determine the correct shade of porcelain to use later on. Then he/she removes a small amount of enamel from your tooth to accommodate the porcelain shell. A dental technician fabricates your veneer, specifically tailored to fit your tooth, in the lab. Later, he/she bonds the veneer to your tooth with the help of resin cement.
You should brush and floss your veneer just like you do for your other teeth. It’s recommended you avoid foods and beverages that may stain or discolor your veneer, such as coffee, tea, or red wine.
Good oral hygiene helps your veneer last longer, but, at some point, replacement is inevitable. This can be costly, but, for many people, the results are more than worth it. Call Masters Dental Group or schedule an appointment online to find out if veneers are the right choice for your smile.
