Important Facts about Dental Veneers

You may experience your teeth missing their shine and cavities forming on your teeth. Most people tend to look for quick fixes to freshen them up and protect them from further damage. Taking great care of your teeth at this particular point can be a real boost to improve your health. However, brushing, flossing and regular use of mouthwash will not go a long way in getting your teeth back in shape and shiny like they used to be.

Benefits of Veneers

When you do not see improvements in the way your teeth look, and your cavities are still present after applying these methods, it may be time to consider dental veneers. This is a thin coat of ceramic or porcelain or resin-based compound that has an array of benefits to your teeth.

If you start debating whether to get a veneer or not, here are several important benefits that you should know about dental veneers. Veneers give your teeth their natural color, improve the bite and also prevent the formation of cavities and diseases like gingivitis. They can also keep your teeth aligned, boosting your self-esteem and confidence.

Before placing veneers on your teeth, the surface of the enamel is thoroughly cleaned to make a better base where the adhesive will be placed. Once the enamel is set, temporary veneers will be put while the new ones are being created. Once complete, the temporary veneers are removed, and a dental glue is used to bond the veneer to your teeth.


Veneers last for about 15 to 20 years and in some cases even longer. The time period is dependent on how well you take care of them and our gums. In case they become damaged, a replacement is recommended. Veneers do not need several visits to the dentist office. A single visit can suffice, even though it all depends on the type of veneers you are going for. It is also important to note that before placing veneers, a dental checkup will have to take place so as to fill any cavity and remove any infections on the teeth. This is important to maintain fresh teeth that are well taken care of.

One caution that should be adhered to is that you cannot have veneers placed when your teeth are still developing, or if you have an ongoing infection being treated. When you visit us at our office, we will prepare for you a custom fit for you that will improve the flaws on your teeth.

Once you have the veneers placed, you can brush and floss like normal. The cost of the veneers normally varies, depending on the needs and location of treatment. Dental veneers should blend perfectly with your teeth. Call us today if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment: (850) 492-7647
