What are Veneers?

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are put over the front surface of the teeth. They can restore many different dental problems – such as discolored, mismatched, cracked, or chipped teeth.

Also, they’re useful for closing big spaces between your teeth for a perfect smile without need for orthodontic treatment.

For porcelain veneers, we don’t always need to remove healthy tooth structure to place them correctly. This makes veneers a minimally invasive technique that can successfully transform your smile. You can also choose the color of your veneers, which means we can give you a whiter smile that still looks extremely natural.

The Benefits of Veneers

Dental veneers are permanently bonded, which means they should last between 7-15 years without needing to be replaced. They’re also stain-resistant, but we do recommend avoiding foods and beverages that tend to discolor your teeth, like coffee and wine.

However, veneers may not be suitable for people who grind their teeth, since you’ll run the risk of chipping them. Otherwise, veneers don’t require extra care, besides brushing and flossing your teeth regularly.
