Veneers are used to improve the appearance of teeth that have cracks, are misshapen, have gaps, or have stains that aren’t responsive or appropriate for whitening procedures.
Though it is rumored that some celebrities have veneers on all of their teeth, your teeth need to be evaluated by your dentist to determine the best methods to achieve the look you want while putting your oral health first.
Veneers are a porcelain covering over your natural tooth. Your dentist will remove a thin layer of the enamel on your tooth so that when the veneer is applied, your bite remains the same. Some patients may be, after careful examination by the dentist, candidates for no or low prep veneers which do not remove the tooth enamel.
Once your veneers are in place, you will maintain them in much the same way that you do with your own teeth – with regular brushing and flossing. Your dentist will recommend a non-abrasive toothpaste so that you don’t wear down the enamel.
It is very important that you make follow-up appointments. Your dentist will need to perform professional maintenance on your veneers and ensure they are reacting well and that you are not damaging them with teeth grinding or clenching.
