Veneers are porcelain shells that are bonded to your teeth. Veneers match the color of your natural teeth giving patients a beautiful white smile.
A cement material is used to bond veneers to the front of your teeth. They are typically used for chipped, stained, or uneven teeth. Veneers give patients a uniform look that is natural and bright white.
Veneers are made out of porcelain that is durable and long lasting. The average life of veneers is between 10-15 years. Patients must take good care of their teeth with veneers to ensure they last and stay in good condition.
Caring for Veneers:
- Avoid biting any very hard objects or foods.
- Wear a mouthguard to protect your veneers if you play sports.
- If you suffer from bruxism or clench your teeth, a mouthguard may be helpful to prevent damage to the veneers.
- Avoid biting your nails as this can damage your veneers.
Veneers are extremely durable if they are taking care of. Brushing and flossing daily is recommended, as well as your regular dental visits.
