What Are Veneers

How Do veneers Work

Teeth can be stained, discolored, chipped, and broken easily than you might think. Dental veneers are offered as an option to address these dental problems by using materials that match the color of natural teeth.

Veneers are a way to make your teeth whiter and straighter. The procedure is fairly simple and has minimal downtime.

Dr. Winter offers many different dentistry services at Kite & Key Dentistry, including dental veneers that are designed specifically to match the shape, size, and color of your healthy teeth. With your veneers on, your smile will look better than ever before.

Why Should You Get Veneers

Worn out and heavily stained teeth can’t be fixed with simple procedures like bleaching and whitening. Veneers can mask the discoloration caused by dental surgeries, excessive fluoride treatments, and tetracycline drugs. If you have old, dark fillings, no need to replace them because they can be covered with a little help from veneers.

How to Get Veneers

Getting Cosmetic Veneers

Veneers are applied by scraping away the surface of the tooth. This allows the dentist to keep the nerve intact and keep the base strong. Furthermore, this also allows the dentist to replace the existing veneer any time you want. You don’t need to cover up all of your teeth with veneers in order to keep the color consistent. The dentist will make sure that the veneers match the healthy teeth in appearance.

What You Can Expect

How Long will your veneers last

How long will the veneers last mainly depends on the material used. For example, high-quality, porcelain veneers have a lifespan of 10 years. If you take good care of them, they can last up to 15 years. Of course, just like teeth, veneers can get damaged. If this happens, you should contact your dentist immediately, to prevent any harm to your tooth enamel.

Treatment and Aftercare

taking care of your veneers

When you have veneers, maintaining them properly will become a part of your life. There are certain things that you’re probably accustomed to that you’ll have to stop doing because of veneers. Don’t worry, these things won’t force you to change your life completely. 

If you want your veneers to last you for as long as possible, you need to:

  • Pay attention to the way you bit into hard foods and watch out how you chew.
  • Start wearing a mouthguard, if you regularly participate in contact sports.
  • At night, consider wearing a retainer to protect your teeth from grinding.
  • Avoid beverages like red wine and coffee, or at least drink them in moderation.
  • Stop biting your nails and pencils while you’re trying to focus on a certain task.
