At Dentistry by Design we offer many different services and procedures to help our patients with their oral health and appearance. In this post we will be highlighting veneers and the benefits that can come from them. For those not familiar with veneers, they are a thin piece of porcelain placed over the teeth to help bring them back to their natural look and strength. Veneers are custom made to fit your teeth and are not visible to others the way braces are. The main benefits of veneers are to straighten teeth and cover chips or discoloration. Applying veneers usually can be done in one to two appointments. The process is painless other than possible slight discomfort while actually bonding the veneers onto the teeth. There is no special care required for veneers although a night guard is recommended to help protect them. Otherwise regular brushing and flossing just like normal will help keep them in good condition. Veneers do not last forever and will need to be replaced at some point, but proper oral healthcare will help them last much longer.
