Porcelain veneers are shells that cover the surface of teeth. Veneers are the color of our natural teeth, and can help improve your smile. They can be colored, shaped, and sized, to match your natural teeth making them blend in perfectly with the teeth around them. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth using a cement like material.
Veneers are made out of porcelain and are very durable. They are stain resistant and can last between 10 to 15 years. Veneers can sustain damage just like any tooth can, so it is important to protect your veneers to help lengthen their life. Veneers are permanent and are the perfect solution for many patients, giving them the smile they have always wanted.
Reasons veneers are used:
- You have a chipped, broken, or misshapen tooth.
- You have a gap in your tooth.
- Your tooth is discolored.
In order to help your veneer last we recommend to follow good oral hygiene habits. If you play any sports consider wearing a mouthguard to help protect your veneers. Avoid biting any hard objects with your teeth, clenching, or grinding your teeth to prevent damage.
