For patients that aren’t fully satisfied with their smiles, investing in veneers may be the best option. Veneers are porcelain shells that are custom-made to fit perfectly onto the surface of your natural teeth. They are permanently bonded to each individual tooth, leaving you with a smile that is not only perfect, but also permanent.
Porcelain veneers are used to mask dental imperfections of all kinds, from a small chip to an entire set of unusually shaped teeth. They are also a popular choice for patients wanting to whiten and brighten their smiles. If traditional teeth whitening methods don’t seem to work on your enamel, veneers can be a great alternative.
Cosmetic Use of Veneers
Veneers are highly versatile when it comes to their utility within cosmetic dentistry. They can be used to fix:
- Chipped teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Pointed teeth
- Unusually shaped teeth
And many more issues.
Process of Receiving Veneers
How Long Will They Last?
Veneers will generally last between 10-15 years. A lot depends on how patients treat their new smile, and practicing good oral health habits can greatly extend their lifetime. Chewing on extremely hard surfaces like ice or fingernails is strongly discouraged, as it can create chips or cracks in veneers. Be sure to let your dentist know if you regularly grind your teeth at night. A night guard may be needed to help protect the veneers from damage.
