Many people try to hide their teeth because they are embarrassed by chips, stains or misalignment. Thanks to veneers, you no longer have to feel self-conscious about smiling in public. This incredible cosmetic dental treatment has been giving many adults a brand-new beautiful smile to show the world!
What Are Dental Veneers?
Veneers are custom-made shells placed on the surface of your tooth. They are thin, natural-looking and durable. Veneers are a good option for people who are looking for an easy and affordable way to address minor imperfections with their teeth.
They can correct the following dental concerns:
Placing Dental Veneers
Preparing for dental veneers requires our dentist and team to shave off a tiny amount of enamel from your teeth. Afterward, they will bond the veneer to the front of your problematic tooth or teeth. Since your enamel cannot grow back after being removed, veneers are considered a permanent treatment. Before getting veneers, you must have healthy teeth and gums.
If you have any dental diseases or decay, Dr. Chrislyn Fite is more than happy to treat them before your veneer placement.
Taking Care of Your Veneers
Your veneers may be durable, but they are not indestructible! They can break under pressure, so avoid biting on hard objects like your fingernails, pencils or ice. You may also want to consider an alternative cosmetic treatment if you have nighttime bruxism.
Veneers can stain if you regularly consume staining foods and beverages or if you smoke tobacco. Avoiding or limiting those things can help maintain the beauty of your veneers. Also, make sure to practice good oral hygiene, as you can still get cavities around and under your veneers.
