What are veneers used for?
- Teeth that have been worn down

What are the benefits of veneers?
There are several benefits of dental veneers, including:
- A natural look for your teeth.
- The veneer procedure is fairly easy and is less invasive than dental crowns.
- They don’t stain
- You can choose the color, shape, and size of veneer that you want.
How long do veneers typically last?
If well taken care of, Dental Veneers can last up to twenty years. However, if not taken care of, you can expect to have them replaced within a couple of years.
How do you care for Dental Veneers?
One of the greatest benefits of dental veneers is that you can care for them just as you would your natural teeth: flossing, brushing, and regular dental visits (every six months). And although porcelain dental veneers are known to withstand stains, it’s still important to brush your teeth after you consume stain causing foods and beverages like black tea and red wine.
Depending on your budget, your oral health condition, and the recommendation of your dentist, dental veneers may or may not be the best option for you and your smile. However, with durability and the ability to completely transform your smile into something you’ve always desired— Dental Veneers are a great option for many individuals.
