Caring For Your Veneers
Dental veneers can be an excellent cosmetic enhancement to your teeth. Proper care of them can extend their life, saving you time in the chair and money. At Premier Dental, we can provide you tips and guidance to getting the most out of your veneers.
A dental veneer is a thin porcelain shell that we can bond to the front face of a tooth to alter, enhance and perfect your look. Veneers can be used to cover chips, hide stains, and even alter the shape and size of a tooth. The lifespan of a dental veneer is generally about ten years, but with proper care, many patients are seeing their veneers last twenty years.
Some guidelines to help extend the life of your veneers include:
When Should I Replace My Veneers?
You can contact us at any time with concerns about your dental veneers. As a standard, we will check the status of your veneers at your regularly scheduled checkup appointment each year. If we find the bond to be loose, we can strengthen it at this time. Otherwise, we will also check for damage or breakage to your veneer piece. We may advise replacing your veneer if we see damage, we can discuss it specific to you at that time.
Dental veneers can make a significant difference in the look of your smile. Using them, we can help your teeth look straighter, whiter, and perfected. If you are looking for a fast way to improve the look of your smile, dental veneers may be the answer.
