Even if you do everything in your power to keep your teeth looking and feeling their best, factors like everyday wear and tear, diet, smoking, and genetics can damage your teeth. Veneers are used to change the size, shape, and color of damaged teeth in as little as a single trip to the dentist.
How Veneers Work
Veneers are made of a thin layer of porcelain bonded directly onto the tooth. In some cases, a thin layer of enamel may need to be shaved down to smooth the surface for the best result. Veneers are an affordable and effective option for a number of common dental problems such as:
- Fill in spaces and gaps between teeth (spaces and gaps due to bite and alignment problems may require orthodontics)
- Repair moderate chips and cracks
- Stains and discolorations
- Resize uneven or misshaped teeth
- Seal and strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy or treatment for tooth decay
The first step to improving or completely making over your smile is to consult with a dentist to discuss what your ideal smile will look. Veneers are custom designed to match the color and texture of real tooth enamel for the most natural looking result. On average, veneers can last anywhere from five to ten years or longer with proper oral hygiene and follow up dental care.
