A popular cosmetic treatment that can cover up a variety of imperfection in your smile is dental veneers. These are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded directly to the surface of the teeth, and since they are made out of porcelain, they are very difficult to stain. This means your smile will remain bright and white for quite a while. And they are a much less invasive cosmetic solution when compared to crowns or implants.
Veneers can be used to cover up stains, chips, cracks, and gaps, but our dentist will need to examine your smile first to make sure veneers are the best choice. Veneers do require a small amount of enamel to be removed in order to fit properly, so some patients may not be able to give up that much enamel. If it is determined that dental veneers are not the best choice, a different cosmetic solution will be recommended.
Veneers can last up to 15 years if properly cared for, and sometimes they can last even longer. It all depends on how well you take care of them. You should continue to brush and floss your teeth twice a day to remove harmful bacteria and stains. And you should schedule regular check-ups with your dentist so that we can make sure your veneers stay in top shape.
