The teeth can change over time. They may darken, crack or become worn as you grow older. If you have a tooth or two that seem to have a negative effect on your smile, consider porcelain veneers to correct the problem. Veneers are used to remove gaps, straighten, whiten or correct worn teeth. The great thing about veneers is that they look, function and feel like your natural teeth.
They are made of thin porcelain caps that are bonded to the exterior of the tooth. Application can be completed in two visits and requires very little removal of the tooth’s structure.
Many dental professionals consider veneers as the most durable and natural looking cosmetic restoration in history and what’s more, they are also very compatible with the gums. For problems with the front teeth, veneers should be considered.
Care and Maintenance of Veneers
With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last for the rest of your life. They’re very strong and resistant to stains. They are also less likely to chip and will bond better compared to fillings.
Make sure you have a sound oral hygiene regimen at home and don’t forget to see your dentist at least twice a year so that your veneers can give you many years of service.
