6 Things You Should Know About Dental Veneers

Veneers have been around for many years now, and they are becoming increasingly common in the Los Angeles area. Thanks to their discreet appearance, you probably see people who have veneers all the time without even knowing it. If you would like to enhance the appearance of your smile, veneers could be the solution you are looking for. Continue reading to learn 6 facts about veneers you may not already know.

1. Veneers are an effective alternative to tooth whitening.

If you have stubborn stains that have not responded to traditional tooth whitening methods, hope is not lost. Veneers are an effective way of changing the color of your teeth to one bright, uniform shade. Whether you have stains caused by the use of tetracycline, discoloration caused by a root canal, or a natural tooth color that seems dull or yellow, translucent veneers can be created in a shade that compliments your appearance in the most natural-looking way possible. As an added bonus, veneers are resistant to staining, meaning you can keep your new pearly whites in mint condition without visiting your dentist for whitening treatments.

2. Veneers can transform the size and shape of your teeth.

Few people are born with a Hollywood smile. If you are bothered by unevenness in the size or shape of your teeth, veneers can be custom fit to bring consistency to your teeth. This is a simple solution for people who have some teeth that are shorter than others or teeth that appear pointy or jagged.

3. Veneers can fill in gaps and straighten your teeth.

Who says braces are the only way to straighten a crooked smile? For patients with mild to moderate alignment issues, veneers can provide a cosmetic solution without months or years of orthodontic treatment. While veneers will not realign the teeth, they can fill in gaps and create a new façade that hides unevenness.

4. Veneers can be a solution for tooth sensitivity.

If you have teeth that are overly sensitive or have experienced a loss of tooth enamel, veneers can provide a protective shield between your teeth and the outside world. While you retain your natural tooth, the veneer acts as a strong outer shell that could allow you to enjoy hot and cold foods and drinks without fear of pain.

5. Veneers can last for many years.

Since veneers are made of a thin porcelain material, there is a misconception that they do not last very long. When taken care of, however, veneers can last between 10 and 15 years or more before needing to be replaced.

6. Veneers are easy to maintain.

There is not a lot of upkeep for dental veneers outside of normal brushing, flossing and dental cleaning. However, there are some guidelines you will need to follow to avoid damaging, chipping, or cracking your veneers. For example, you may need to switch to a non-abrasive toothpaste and avoid biting down or chewing hard foods, such as ice or hard candy. You may also need to be fitted for a nighttime mouth guard if you have a history or grinding or clenching your teeth.
