What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin shells for the teeth, often made out of ceramic or porcelain. They are crafted for each individual with a custom mold to achieve a uniform appearance across all teeth. Veneers are a solution for many cosmetic issues such as chipped teeth, large gaps, small teeth, or misshapen teeth. The adhesive is used to apply the thin shell to the surface of the existing tooth. The use of veneers has been around for many years to create perfect smiles. Let’s talk about the ways that veneers can benefit your oral appearance. 

How do Veneers Help The Appearance of Your Smile?

Veneers are most commonly used in cosmetic dentistry to allow you to customize the appearance of your smile. Here are some of the wonders that veneers can achieve:

Eliminate Stains 

Years of smoking or coffee and wine drinking can leave your teeth looking yellow and dull. The porcelain and ceramic material that veneers are made out of are designed to repel those unwanted stains. With these tiny caps, you never have to worry about avoiding the food and drinks that you love. 

Natural Smile 

A common misconception about veneers is that they will look fake or stand out next to your real teeth. This is not true. Veneers are crafted to mimic the look of natural teeth with a bright and healthy shine. You won’t even be able to tell the difference! 

Hide Aging 

As you get older, your teeth slowly become crooked and less bright. Veneers can be used to combat the aging process of your teeth. Extend your youthful smile for many years with beautiful new veneers.

How Long Will Veneers Last?

One of the greatest benefits of getting veneers is that they will last for decades. Porcelain veneers are designed to be extremely durable and hold up against all of the normal wear that teeth go through on a daily basis. Veneers provide a long-lasting cosmetic solution that you won’t have to worry about for many years. If you take proper care of your teeth, veneers are a great option to create the flawless smile that you desire.
