They are a popular choice for those with chipped teeth, a gap between teeth, or misshapen teeth. Dental veneers are thin covers that adhere to teeth to give teeth a more classically shaped look. Veneers can also prevent further damage to the tooth.

Why Do People Get Veneers?

Dental veneers are a simple option to improve your smile. Veneers are thin coverings placed over the front part of the tooth. They look like natural teeth. Veneers are either porcelain or composite resin material. Your dentist will help you choose the material that is best for you. Each type of veneer has its own benefits.

Veneers make up about 26 percent of cosmetic procedures performed by dentists. There are a few reasons why doctors use dental veneers over other procedures. Dentists do this type of cosmetic dentistry to:

  • Change the length, color, and size of teeth
  • Fix chipped, cracked, or broken teeth 
  • Enhance worn-down teeth
  • Fix white spots/streaks on teeth
  • Cover up teeth stains and discoloration 
  • Mask large resin fillings that discolor teeth

After a root canal, a dental crown protects it from fracturing. In some cases, root canal treatment can lead to tooth discoloration over time.

Enjoy Your New Smile for Decades

With reasonable precautions, dental veneers can last anywhere from 10 to 30 years. While you can eat almost anything you like, it is important to exercise reasonable precautions because dental veneers are not indestructible. Porcelain is a type of glass and can shatter with excessive pressure. Check-ups and bi-yearly cleanings are still needed to persevere your new smile.
