Do you ever wonder if there’s something you might be able to use to improve the appearance of your teeth? Are you unsatisfied with small imperfections in your smile? Luckily there are a few cosmetic options you can consider, but please remember to think about the benefits of dental veneers.

Would you be surprised to hear that veneers are thin shells made to look like your other teeth? This means that dental veneers can be matched to the color of your natural teeth and used to cover these imperfections, including cracks and chips. Still, even though veneers are extremely thin shells, they’re fairly strong because they’re fused to your pearly whites. In fact, you might be able to enjoy the benefits of dental veneers 15 years or longer.

Still, there are a few steps you should take if you want to keep your veneers for as long as possible. For example, you should avoid opening things with your teeth. You also should also avoid chewing on anything that’s metal or hard like ice. Naturally, you should also remember to brush your teeth twice daily for two minutes at a time. It’s also important that you floss regularly and schedule bi-annual check-ups with our team. When you visit us, we’ll be happy to give you personalized advice.
