Are you unhappy with the appearance of your teeth? Do you struggle with chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth? Are braces not an ideal option for you? Then dental veneers may be the perfect solution.
Dental veneers are a thin shell of either porcelain or composite resin that cover the outer layer of your teeth. They are securely bonded to the outside of each tooth and immediately correct a variety of dental problems. For example:
- Extremely stained teeth that can’t be whitened by bleaching
- Chipped or warn down teeth
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Uneven or gapped teeth
The process of getting veneers typically takes up to two dentist visits. The first visit is the consultation, and the second is the application of the veneers to your teeth. To prepare your teeth for the veneers, your dentist will first clean, polish, and then etch your teeth—which is when your teeth are roughened to allow for a strong bonding process. After that, the veneers are installed, and once they’re properly positioned, you’re good to go.
Veneers can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years, depending on various factors such as tooth preparation and how well it was bonded. They’re stain resistant, durable, and can be customized to your liking.
