When to Use Dental Veneers

Three young people smilingDental veneers are capable of correcting a wide range of cosmetic imperfections involving your teeth. Some of the more common uses for dental veneers are to conceal teeth that are chipped, stained, cracked, and gapped. Veneers can even be used as a form of instant orthodontics. As opposed to going through years of orthodontic treatment with braces, veneers can oftentimes be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are crooked in as little as two appointments to our North Hollywood cosmetic dentists.

Veneers are placed over your natural teeth in much the same way as press on nails are placed over your fingernails. Unlike press on nails, though, veneers are capable of lasting up to twenty years. They are effectively a permanent smile solution. Taking care of them is easy, as all that is required is regularly brushing and flossing your teeth, along with a visit to the dentist every six months for a professional exam and cleaning. If you have bruxism, you will be required to wear a night guard, as the clenching and grinding forces can affect the longevity of your veneers.

If you are interested in learning if veneers are the right solution for your cosmetic dental needs, contact our dental veneers dentist in North Hollywood to schedule a consultation.
