While many cosmetic dental treatments are made to correct just one or two issues, those patients with a lot of issues in their mouth are often overwhelmed with how they can fix their smile. Luckily, dental veneers are amazingly effective at correcting a wide variety of dental issues:
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are adhered to a tooth. Porcelain is an ideal material to use due to its resemblance to a natural tooth. It can easily match the shade of other nearby teeth, and when buffed it has the natural glossy shine of a natural tooth. In order to keep them in place, a small layer of enamel must be removed in order to give the veneer enough surface to adhere to.
Porcelain is also ideal for veneers because of its strength and its resistance to stains. However, the first few days after getting your veneers, it is advised to avoid stain-inducing items such as coffee, tea, red wine and cigarette smoke. Follow proper oral hygiene to keep your veneers bright and shining for years to come.
