If you need a solution to teeth that are stained, gapped, misaligned or chipped, attractive and easy to apply veneers are a great choice. While not permanent, they can last a long time with good oral hygiene, and will improve and support your smile quickly and easily.
What Are Veneers?
Dental veneers are made of thin, stain-resistant porcelain or composite dental resin. Whichever material they are made from, veneers are cemented on the front surface of teeth, improving the appearance of your teeth cosmetically as well as restoratively. They are quite simple to place on your teeth, too.
Traditionally, your dentist creates an impression of your teeth, creating a model for the veneer. Then our dental team will examine a tooth color guide to choose the most natural color match for your veneers with your teeth. The veneers themselves will be made in a dental lab. Once received at your dental office, they are then cemented onto your teeth.

How Long Veneers Can Last?
Usually, veneers last between 10 to 15 years. But exactly how long they last depends on the type of veneer you choose - composite or porcelain - and your own oral care. Both can help with extending the life of your veneers.
Veneers are long lasting, but not permanent. All the same, they offer a long term benefit that greatly enhances your appearance and your overall dental health, and are a simple way to achieve the most attractive smile.
While you cannot remove veneers again, they are simple to replace when they wear out.
Good Oral Hygiene Extends Veneer Life
To extend the life of your veneers, simply care for them just as you would for your natural teeth. That means brushing and flossing twice each day and making sure you schedule regular six-month appointments with your skilled dentist for important regular check-ups and cleanings.
Maintaining good oral hygiene also means avoiding some things to preserve your veneers longevity, such as high-sugar foods like sodas or hard candy, chewing on ice or your fingernails, or using teeth to open envelopes or a package.
And, while porcelain veneers are fairly stain-resistant, composites react like your natural teeth do to substances. So if you choose composite veneers, try to limit consumption of beverages like coffee, tea, and red wine, and some berries.
