What are Veneers?
Veneers are tooth-shaped shells that cover the front portion of your teeth. They're great for people who have dental issues such as missing teeth, oddly shaped teeth, or gaps in their smile. Dental veneers are a smart choice for people who want to improve their teeth and feel better about their appearance.
Veneers Help a Variety of Issues
Dental veneers help people with misshapen or missing teeth, but they help other issues as well. For example, if your natural teeth are badly stained, you may wish to consider dental veneers. People in Lake View with chipped teeth or severely crooked teeth may also find success with veneers.
Kinds of Veneers
Your dentist can provide you with two kinds of veneers, porcelain or composite resin. Porcelain veneers are placed on the tops and sides of your teeth. They are typically more expensive than composite resin veneers because they are crafted in a dental lab. Composite resin veneers are less expensive. Your dentist can often apply the veneers to your teeth during one office visit.
Taking Care of Your New Veneers
Once you have your new dental veneers, take care of them just like you take care of your natural teeth. Brush them at least twice a day. Use dental floss daily. Thoroughly brush your teeth after consuming beverages like coffee, tea, and wine. These kinds of drinks can easily stain your teeth. Tobacco is also famous for staining your teeth, so quit smoking as soon as possible. Your veneers and your overall health will thank you for it.
