Many people choose to enhance the look of their smile by getting dental veneers. If you’ve been considering this option, find answers to all of your questions.

  1. What are cosmetic dentistry veneers?

A veneer is a very thin layer of porcelain that is placed over a tooth’s surface to help improve the appearance of your smile. They can be applied to one tooth or to your entire smile. These teeth veneers are bonded into place with a resin that is hardened with a special white light. They usually can be placed in a single dental visit. If you are sensitive or anxious about dental procedures, your dentist can give you a local anesthetic for greater comfort. 

  1. Do teeth veneers stain?

Since veneers are made of porcelain, they should be completely resistant to stains. To keep them looking their best, it’s important to practice good dental care and be gentle on your teeth. 

  1. Will my dental veneers match the color of my other teeth?

Since you want to improve the look of your overall smile, dentists usually try to make teeth veneers complement the rest of your teeth. If you have stains on your surrounding teeth, you may want to have all of your teeth whitened before choosing the color of veneers.

  1. What kind of dental care is needed with cosmetic dentistry veneers?

You’ll find that maintaining your veneers is actually very easy. According to dental care experts, you simply need to brush and floss as usual to protect the heath of your teeth and gums. By taking care of your teeth with a good dental hygiene routine, you can keep your dental veneers looking good and lasting for years.Title | Dental Veneers 

  1. How long do dental veneers last?

When properly maintained, veneers can last anywhere from seven to 20 years. While they’re very strong, they can also be brittle if stressed. Simply avoid biting down on very hard substances to keep them looking their best.
