What are veneers?
If you are thinking about cosmetic dentistry, you have probably heard a lot about veneers, but you may not completely understand what they are.
Veneers are versatile dental restorations that look like a thin porcelain shell. They resemble a natural tooth but can actually improve your appearance dramatically by correcting such problems as:
- Shortened/worn teeth
- Chipped teeth
Veneers require prep work to your teeth. In most cases, this will include removing a small amount of enamel to make room for your veneers and ensure a natural look. Without prepping your teeth, your veneers would appear bulky and false. Because of this, veneers are a lifelong commitment. They are also life changing, and most of our patients tell us they wish they had gotten them sooner because their veneers make them feel proud of the way they look.
If you take great care of your veneers, your teeth, and your gums, you can expect veneers to last many years! Maintaining great oral health is essential to protecting your investment in your smile.
At our Monroe Township, NJ dental office, we are always happy to answer any questions you may have about veneers or any other dental procedures. Give us a call!
