Your smile is a huge part of who you are, so you shouldn’t hide it. If you are unhappy or self-conscious about your smile, it’s time to do something about it. At Chestnut Ridge Dental, our goal is to create beautiful, healthy smiles, and one of the ways we are helping our patients achieve the smiles of their dreams is through veneers.
What are Veneers?
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made of tooth-colored materials that cover the front of your teeth. Veneers are made from materials like porcelain or resin composite materials that are bonded to the front of teeth to improve their appearance. When done by a skilled dentist, veneers will look authentic with the color and shape consistent with your natural teeth.
Veneers are often used to fix discolored, chipped, worn down, or broken teeth. Dentists may recommend dental veneers to correct the appearance of uneven, irregularly shaped, or misaligned teeth.
Benefits of Veneers
There are many advantages to getting dental veneers, which is why it has become a very popular cosmetic dentistry procedure.
- Improve the look of your smile. Throughout the years, your teeth may have become discolored, chipped, or cracked. These physical issues can dull your smile or make you self-conscious about your teeth. Veneers can easily make your teeth whiter and strengthen the look of your overall smile. Veneers correct your teeth’s imperfections to help you have a confident, beautiful smile while still looking natural.
- Veneers are durable. Dental veneers can resist stains better than your natural teeth, preserving their whiteness long-term instead of having to whiten your teeth consistently. Porcelain veneers are very durable, tough, and can last up to 15 years before they need to get replaced.
- They do not require any additional special care. You take care of your veneers the same way that you take care of your natural teeth. Just like it’s important to clean and maintain your teeth, you must take care of your veneers. You can brush and floss your teeth just like you always have, avoiding aggressive brushing and gritty toothpaste. You still need to continue to visit your dentist regularly for check-up exams, as you had before getting veneers.
- They can boost your confidence. We have found that our patients can’t stop smiling after getting veneers! Dental veneers can dramatically change a person’s smile, making them feel confident in their appearance and proud to show off their teeth and smile.
