Americans spend millions of dollars on the appearance of their teeth every year. Having flaws in your smile can be embarrassing, and this causes many people have issues with their self confidence. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to attain a more beautiful smile. And when you’re considering your options, please don’t forget about dental veneers.
Dental veneers are a thin shell, typically made of porcelain or a composite resin, that is custom made to cover flawed teeth. Veneers can be used to fix a number of issues, such as chipped, stained, worn, misaligned, uneven, or abnormally spaced teeth. These veneers are bonded to your teeth, making them extremely sturdy.
Even though veneers are sturdy, you’ll need to care for them. Naturally, you’ll need to brush and floss as you normally would—just please remember to brush gently and to use a brush with soft bristles. We also recommend using a non-abrasive toothpaste, and you may consider speaking with our dentist before choosing the best toothpaste for you. Finally, if you have dental veneers, please don’t misuse your teeth by biting your nails or chewing on pens or ice.
