Your teeth might accumulate stains, cracks, and other damage over time, but they don’t always require complex procedures to fix. We offer durable veneers to attach to the front of your teeth to enhance their appearance. To find out if veneers are the appropriate fix for your tooth damage, call the office to book your appointment today.
What are veneers?
There are two main types of veneers:
Porcelain veneers are strong, durable, and look almost exactly like natural teeth. Additionally, they’re difficult to stain.
A material that’s often used for dental appliances, composite resin takes on a similar appearance to your natural teeth and is easy to fix or replace.
What is the process of getting veneers?
Then, they create your custom veneers while you wear temporary veneers for a short time. When the veneers are complete, your dentist tests their fit over your tooth.
If they fit nicely, your dentist bonds them to your tooth and hardens the bonding material with a special light. Finally, they polish and smooth the veneers.
How can veneers improve my smile’s appearance?
Veneers can adjust the appearance of individual teeth or your entire smile. Our team frequently uses veneers to cover or correct:
- Wide gaps
- Misshapen teeth
- Short teeth
It’s important to keep in mind that while veneers improve your teeth’s appearance, they don’t necessarily add to their strength or durability. If you have veneers, you must try to avoid chewing your fingernails, ice, and other solid objects to avoid breaking them.
What should I do if I break a veneer?
In some cases, broken veneers are unavoidable. It’s possible to bite into something solid without knowing or to mistakenly forget that you have a veneer and bite down a bit harder than you should have.
If you break a veneer or if one comes loose, don’t panic. Simply call our office for the next available appointment to get a new veneer or reattach your current veneer, if it’s still intact. With proper care, your veneers can last and stay on your teeth for many years.
