Investing in your smile can go a long way to improving your social interactions and confidence. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums will involve brushing twice daily and visiting a dentist twice annually. But what if you have neglected your teeth and are now looking at reversing the damage.
Veneers are a good option for those with moderate or severely damaged or misshapen teeth. Veneers use custom-made ceramic shells that are applied to the front of teeth, instantly improving the shape and color of your teeth.
Consider the following facts about veneers and how they can help you achieve that perfect smile.
Veneers will involve 2-3 visits to your dentist – Firstly, your dentist will assess your teeth and repair any fillings. Your dentist will then shave a thin layer of your enamel and place temporary veneers until your permanent ones are ready. Temporary veneers are a good opportunity for patients to assess the shape and color of their new teeth.
Once your veneers are ready, they will be applied with a bonding cement that will keep your veneers in place.
Some soreness is common after applying veneers as the bonding cement can cause sensitivity. Most patients are completely healed within a few days.
Veneers can last up to 20 years if you brush twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and avoid chewing on very hard foods that will chip your veneers.
