If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your teeth, you may want to consider teeth veneers. Discover what you need to know about this dental care option.

  1. How are cosmetic dentistry veneers applied?

A dental veneer is a thin, porcelain covering that is bonded over a tooth to enhance its shape, size, and appearance. They can be placed onto a single tooth or used on your whole smile. These teeth veneers are secured into place with a special resin that is hardened with a strong white light. They usually can be placed in just one dental visit. If you experience significant anxiety about dental procedures, your dentist can give you a local anesthetic. 

  1. Are my dental veneers going to be the same color as my other teeth?

Yes, dentists try to make teeth veneers match the rest of your teeth to improve your entire smile. If there are stains on the surrounding teeth, it’s best to get all of your teeth whitened before you select the shade of veneers.

  1. What’s the proper dental care for cosmetic dentistry veneers?

People are always surprised to learn how simple it is to care for veneers. According to dental care experts, you simply need to brush and floss every day as usual to keep your smile healthy. By having a good dental hygiene routine, you can keep your teeth veneers looking good and lasting for years.

  1. Will dental veneers last a long time?

Surprisingly, veneers can last up to 20 years when they’re properly maintained. While their porcelain is very strong, it can also be rather brittle. To protect your veneers from damage, avoid biting down on very hard foods and follow a good dental hygiene routine.
