Are you unhappy with the color of your teeth? Are there small chips or cracks you wish you could correct? Do you ever wonder what you might be able to do to improve the appearance of your teeth? If so, we recommend considering the benefits of dental veneers.

As you may know, veneers are thin shells that are designed to match the color of your other teeth. Once your veneers are made, they’ll be fused to your existing tooth, which makes your veneers quite durable. Still. Even though your veneers are durable, you may still need to have them replaced eventually. Fortunately, you can expect to enjoy your veneers for 10 to 15 years.

Luckily, there are a number of things you can do to keep your veneers for as long as possible. For instance, you’ll need to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes at a time. You should also remember to floss your teeth every day. We also recommend using non-abrasive toothpaste because they’re better for your veneers. Visiting our team once every six months is also important because we can help you identify issues you may not realize you have.

Finally, please remember to use your teeth correctly. In other words, you should avoid chewing on ice, pens, or anything metal. If you don’t, your veneers could crack or fracture.
