One of the most popular methods of restoring a smile is through the use of dental veneers. A dental veneer is a thin, tooth-colored shell made of porcelain or plastic that fit over the front of your teeth. People with crooked or discolored teeth or with big, noticeable gaps can have veneers placed to change the color or shape of their smile. Your dentist may recommend a single veneer to restore a tooth that has been fractured or several veneers to create a “Hollywood” smile. Veneers are especially popular as a cosmetic restoration because your dentist can place veneers with little or no anesthesia, and the veneers typically stay in place and retain their color longer than dental bonding.
Once they’re in place, you continue to brush and floss normally and visit the dentist for regular checkups. With proper care, your veneers will typically last five to ten years. If you’ve always dreamed of having a movie star smile, dental veneers can be the answer you’re looking for. Give us a call today to discuss your options!
