Dental veneers are designed to drastically improve the look and shape of your teeth. If you ever wanted a smile makeover but were unwilling to replace all of your teeth, you can still keep your natural teeth and apply but dental veneers to the fronts of them to get the smile you’ve always wanted.

However, because dental veneers only cover up the front of a tooth, the tooth will still need to be cleaned and cared for to ensure no further damage occurs to it. Once you have a dental veneer in place, it can be held tightly for up to 10 years before a repair or replacement may be needed. This gives a decade of continuous use before it may begin to wear out. Because they’re made of porcelain or resin composite materials, dental veneers have proven to be extremely effective in preventing and minimizing staining risks.

Dental veneers are known for their customization options. This means that they can be crafted and designed to fit your oral health care needs, whether that be changes in the shape, size or even modifications to a tooth’s color to blend in with the rest of your teeth. With dental veneers in place, you can be sure that no matter how much damage a tooth has sustained, provided the tooth can hold a dental veneer, it will drastically improve his look. However, some teeth are simply too unhealthy or too far damaged for a dental veneer. If this is the case, an additional tooth restoration will be needed to repair the tooth.
