Are you unhappy with the color of your pearly whites? Are there small imperfections you would like to correct? Do you ever think about options you could consider if you’re interested in improving the look and feel of your pearly whites? If so, you may want to consider the benefits of dental veneers.

As you might know, veneers are thin shells that are fused to your natural teeth and designed to blend with your other pearly whites. Fortunately, veneers are very durable, you may need to get them replaced if they’re damaged. Still, you can expect to enjoy your veneers for a decade or more.

There are a few things you may be able to do to keep your veneers for as long as possible. For example, you’ll need to keep up on your brushing and flossing. You may also want to use non-abrasive toothpaste because they tend to be better for your veneers. Visiting our dental team once every six months is important because we’re trained to identify problems you may not know you have.

Lastly, please try to use your teeth and veneers correctly. In other words, you should avoid biting pens, ice, or anything metal.
