Veneers are porcelain shells that are bonded to your teeth. They match the color and shade of your natural teeth giving patients a beautiful white smile.
A cement material is used to bond veneers to the front of your teeth. Typically veneers are used for chipped, stained, or uneven teeth. Veneers make teeth look uniform and bright white giving patients the look and feel of natural teeth.
What Are Veneers Made Of?
Veneers are made out of porcelain that is durable and is also long lasting. On average the life of veneers is anywhere between 10-15 years. Patients must be cautious with veneers to ensure they last. The life of veneers depends on how much wear and tear they get over time. In order to ensure veneers last and stay in good condition, patients must take care of their teeth.
How Can I Get The Most Out Of My veneers?
Some helpful tips to get the most out of your veneers include the following:
- Avoid biting any hard objects or foods.
- If you suffer from bruxism, or clench your teeth, wear a mouthguard to help prevent damage to the veneers.
